    They are built on a true 16 gauge frame I assume? Hard to find info on some of those sites, still fairly new to researching guns online I guess!

    Been reading a lot of unhappy reviews regarding the firing pin failing on the 525's in 16 gauge-for a $1500 gun that seems unacceptable to me.

    Seach continues!

    I haven't heard great feedback from the Franchi o/u's-may have been from Browning fanboys though haha. Never had a chance to handle one myself.

    I was looking at that one, only thing holding me back is I don't like that style of stock!

    That's what I was thinking. Hoping it's still available when the funds come around. Wondering how stiff the action is? Can't travel out there to test first.

    I actually like the chaps idea, hadn't seen those before. I have quite the selection of pants to choose from, would be nice to just be able to protect them from briars and other crap!

    The only thing I'm worried about buying sight unseen is how stiff the actions can be on some of the older guns. Granted the only semi autos I've shot are new Benellis which are smooth, so I may be...

    Gear ?'s

    Good morning,

    I need a pair of upland pants. I have insulation I can wear underneath so not a huge deal breaker if they aren't overly warm, just need to be durable.

    Also wondering what you're...
