    Best shotgun for the money, bar none; you can change the dynamics to fit your style of shooting; excellent service and transferable ten year warranty; Comes with grade 4 wood or better.

    The best part was walking into Dawsons to buy my O/U barrel, and picking any one off the wall knowing it will fit perfectly. To me, being able to interchange any stock, forend, or barrel, whether it be sporting or trap styles, is a huge benefit.

    The adjustibility of the gun is great, although slightly overwhelming for a new shooter.

    Negatives - I don't think they make a roller release for it, but I could be wrong on that. I don't shoot a release so I haven't looked into it too much.

    Highly adjustable.
    The stock design is near perfect. Nice pistol grip, fat comb, good upright stance.
    The trigger is perfection. No slop breaks clean.
    Great set of chokes.
    Adjustable rib.
    Weight system built into the design in the stock and barrels so you don't have to hang one of those ugly weights from your barrel and you can setup up the balance to YOUR liking.
    Recoil is super tame. The gun tames recoil like no other gun I've shot.
    Super low profile receiver puts the two barrels closer together on the double barrel . and the top barrel shot has noticeably lighter recoil than other guns I've shot.

    If you can afford the extra $$ I would recommend upgrading to the Luxus model. The engraving and wood are pretty. The Blaser website does not do it justice.

    After several thousand rounds through the gun it opens and closes the same as it was new. Smoothly. No prying open and no flopping open. That is a quality fit.

    Love mine. I plan to keep it for a long time.

    The cons are;

    You will quit shooting and likely sell your other clay target guns.

    You will want extra barrels and better wood for your baby.

    You will want a Custom Americase for your favorite toy.

    Every time you pick it up, you will be tickled with it.

    Every time you shoot it, you will be thrilled.

    Ask me how I know this. LOL

    I have one with upgraded wood, extra barrels, fitted tubeset, and a custom Americase.

    Looking HARD at a Grand Lux receiver, ANOTHER upgrade.

    This gun is so good, that I routinely shoot straight rounds of skeet with it too, and don't change one thing. This is not a joke. It swings so nice, and just works. I will also say the warranty is solid. The mid barrel connector on my SuperTrap broke on the 32 inch barrels. Sent it to Blaser in TX and a new set of barrels came back, no charge. That is awesome, no hassle, just great fast service.
