    I had two of them. Bought for my wife as she wanted to try doubles. First one lasted exactly 76 rounds before the safety jammed and lower barrel wouldnt fire. Stevens replaced it. The second one, like the first had a really creepy long trigger pull. She shot it 100 rds, then we sold it. I was not impressed. Like they say " ya get what ya pay for."

    I bought two of them, a 12 gauge and a 20. They were the ones where the receivers were silver finished that Dick's had on special. Never had any trouble with either one. I did clean up the barrel latch on the 20 with a small file to make it easier for my wife to open, it probably would have worn in with use, but I take care of things like that for her. They are field grade guns. The 12 is pretty light with a face slapping kick, but the 20 is a joy to shoot. It is not very fancy, but it always goes bang and breaks a lot of targets. I still use the 20 for skeet or sporting clays when my trap shooting buddies don't make it to the club.
