    Yes I have one. They are an alright gun for the money(for hunting only). If you are shooting day in and day out, or shooting clay sports you may want to look at another O/U. I have had no problems with mine probably shot 2000+ rounds through it since last fall and I am pleased with it. My friend bought one at the same time last fall, but a different dealer and has had nothing but trouble with it. He has probably only shot 500 max through it. First cracked stock, (fixed under warranty but sent him a straight grain wood - does not match the forend), Next firing pin (he did not send it in, but they sent him the pin and found out it has to be machined down to fit). It is now sitting at a gunsmiths. I purchased a SKB and love it and put my Savage on the shelf for hunting only. I know the SKB is about double the price of the Stevens, but I am sure if you would pick one up you would like it. Some stores are closing out the older models (TSS85)to make room for the G7 and you can find good deals. Just stay out of the discount houses and go to a local dealer. They know their business and will treat you right.
