    Just purchased Silver Sietz and should receive it late this week fitted. Of those who have an SS or have shot an SS, what is your opinion of them? Durability?

    Ditto what motordoc said. In 5 years, I've had no need for service, and my trigger has stayed at 4 pounds. Like a "sleek tank".

    Seems odd to me to buy and then ask opinions?! Tom Rhoads

    Blade819: You will be very happy with your decision on purchasing a Silver Seitz.

    I wish I had never parted with mine.

    Highest scores and averages were with it, and it had a Tom Wilkinson Bbl job.

    Blade819, You Have Made One Of The Best Decisions You Can Make.I Shoot A Seitz And Need To Tell You They Have A WONDERFUL TRIGGER. I Shoot A Release And It Is The BEST One I Have EVER Had.The Seitz Is A "Tank" As You Will Probably Never Need Any Repairs And Are Beautiful Guns. Shoot Well & Often. Joe W.

    A nice gun but IMHO over-rated. They do break on occasion. Back to the factory it goes.

    Some(maybe a lot)people will disagree w/ me, but I believe the SS is only surpassed by the original Seitz guns.

    Are probably nice guns but I can count on one hand how many I've seen without some sort of recoil reduction device.

    I shot the one I bought for 25 rounds and the first thing that impressed me was no recoil at all. That's good with the bad right shoulder that I have. It only had an adjustable pad. It wasn't fitted and I still went 24 of 25 most at the 25 yd line with a .035 Wilinson tube in it. I very seldom read anything on TS.com about Seitz so I was curious. Sounds like I made a good investment. Thanks to Bob Schultz Target Shotguns for another great deal.

    I see many for sale often..

    I suspect as a custom fit gun to an original owner, they often don't fit those who purchase them used.

    The SS is a fantastic gun. Arguably the best you can buy.
    The price keeps them out of the hands of most trapshooters
    though.

    Been shooting one for about 15yrs now, have never felt the need for any recoil reduction devices even in my current gun with it's titanium receiver. I've tried others along the way, including Perazzis and K80s but nothing points and handles like a SS...except maybe an old TM1. Best trigger I've ever used and very few parts to worry about breaking...hard combo to beat, IMO.

    Richie looks at mine at the grand every year. Some years he puts in a new coil spring. And he greases it up. Tells ne to shoot it for another year. I like how easy they open. Mine has never broken. Not much recoil. But if I put heavy 3 dram loads in it , I feel it. They are not recoil proof. Another thing I have a problem with . I keep running out of shells. Buy a used one. You will not loose much coin when you sell it. I plan on shooting mine till I quit shooting. I love the way it points.

    Certainly one of the top shotguns around. Precision made by a company that cares about its product and its customers.

    I own one of the first 10 Silver Seitz guns made (# 007). I am the 5th owner. It is an awesome gun (the shooter could use a lot of improvement).

    This gun would have been made in the early 1980's and it still looks and feels like new. The gun will definitely outlast any of us here. In your will, leave it to someone who really likes precision made shotguns and love trap shooting.

    Richie looks at mine each year at the Grand but tells me I don't shoot it enough to wear anything out. <:)
