    Which model? They're all over the place as far as "good" goes.

    A lot of them are field models and as such are light and kick like a dern mule. I bought my wife a Renassaince Elite and it weighs less than 7 lbs with an Isis installed. She decided she really like the Beretta 682 after getting her brains kicked out by the Franchi. It's now a closet queen.
    Take care,
    Rhett

    I had the model 2003, the 2004 and the model 3000 two barrel set, all in trap models that are not made any longer.they all broke nice birds.I won at a lot of state shoots with them.But they are heavy and brake down alot, and that is why we parted.You can find them sometimes on Gunbroker and Guns America.But remember,you will have alot of trouble finding parts to fix them.they were all made in the 70s and early 80s.
