    I had one of these guns years ago and was very impressed. It was the one actual made by Valmet in Finnland , there are some lesser grade copies I have seen on the net that are Italian made. For those not familiar with the originals here's one on Gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/viewItem.asp?Item=119792078
    No Im not the seller , just want to have a friendly discussion about them with shooters who have shot them. I know they where not up to Krieghoff quality , but how far off in your opinion where they? Why were they not as popular as maybe they should have been? Breakage problems?

    Just conjecture on my part...........................

    I owned and shot one in 1963-64. It was my first shotgun. I thought it was of decent quality. Wish I had it now to compare. Would be interesting. I was too inexperienced with guns & trap shooting at the time to really understand what I had. The only thing was no rib. These early guns were made in Finland by Valmet. I also had a dozen + of their double rifle/shotguns combos,etc. Made in the early '80 in think. Quality was not as high as the 60's gun. Also Valmet.
