    I have a chance to buy one of these in a field model for $400, Does anyone know if they are any good? It has engraving on both sides of the receiver and a 30" full choke. thanks

    I paid $270.00 for mine two years ago.

    If it is atrue 900 recoil operated it usually take 3-1/4 dram equiv to operate action. If it is 900XL gas operated it work with less dram equiv. loads.

    Gun worked for me...

    hello:
    i had a trap grade, could not hit to much with it. but i really can't hit to much with any gun. of all the semi automatics i have had, the skb xl 900 had to be the least melfunctioning gun of the bunch. one of the owners of boxhorns years ago had one that she shot trap with. she NEVER cleaned it except once per year. she could not even get the barrel off, so the gunsmith on the grounds would have to soke it for a day or too. only problem is, where do you get parts should something break? i paid $195.00 used for mine. should you purchase one, i'd have to say it's a workhorse. if you can shoot it first do so, because i had trouble hitting targets with mine.

    Parts for the gas guns are available from SKB. These guns are still in production but not currently imported to the US. More info available on the SKB web site.

    Do these guns have a cut off to prevent shells from being loaded from the magazine?

    Regards,
