    forearm irons break and the forearms break

    triggers break

    so how much do you pay for breaking?

    the above posts are pretty accurate especially the forends. I had one liked it and felt the triggers were acceptable. The forend is really the problem otherwise it would have been a good gun.

    Forearm is no problem if you tighten the screws every 5oo rounds. They work loose and cause the forearm splitting. Whiz White shared that bit of info with me, when I talked to him about my 3000/2 combo. It's been through 2 others and still in good shape. J.Woolsey

    Owned and shot one for three years and did not have a problem. By the way, I loved the trigger.

    so how much is it worth is still the question

    Parts are not available-

    If you have a good one that wont break and it is currently new I would say 600-700

    one broken part can double that cost to you

    so rather than paying 600-700 you are in it for 1200-1400 and if it breaks a third time you are in it for 1800-2100

    its your choice- there are a lot of used guns out there in the 1000 range

    PS- I love the balance and how the barrels shot-- I dont think I have ever had another gun feel so good right out of the box
