    hope this link works. would like to try shooting an unsingle for awhile before going for broke on an expensive combo. i searched 101s on this site and missed a few nice ones. figured i go for an unsingle and if i didn't like it i could just keep it for a backup or sell and lose a little bit. don't want to spend thousands on a gun until i am sure exactly what i want.

    The cocking lever is showing there's wear on the locking lugs. It might have been shot a lot

    Is that always a bad thing in your opinion being shot alot. even if it was well taken care of or is that just leading to a greater chance of something breaking?

    Agree with MIA - additionally if you don't like it you will have a better chance of re-selling the Perazzi than you would the Win 101.

    Perazzi makes oversize parts in order to fix a worn out gun, plus the resale will be much better. IMHO, that Winchester is over 75% shot out.

    At that price look for a BT plus. I had a Diamond grade 101. As I recall it kiched hard and was kind of heavy, didn't swing well. Bulge.

    For about the same money you should be able to find an SKB 85TSS unsingle, which has an adjustable rib. SKB's also kick me less than the 101's I've had.

    Ok thanks guys, replies appreciated. i just started last year and shoot an skb o/u but it is a field gun and it destroys my shoulder and worse my cheek. anyway i really like the etchen 687 but b4 i buy one and realize i don't like the unsingle i figured the 101 would be just a nice gun i could get for not huge money.and after a year of shooting it i could just throw in the safe as a backup or lose maybe 3 hundred bucks and make a quick sell or trade it in on a 687. im never gonna be a serious ata shooter i don't think. im a club league shooter who likes to shoot 50 then shoot the bs over a few beers. i want a nice trap gun eventually as a heirloom down the road more so than to get to any yard lines. which i don't even know what that means, haha.

    Let me comment again. Y9ou will go nowhere with the 101 and prob leave trapshooting because of the recoil.

    Next step up would be a $1200 to $1500 Beretta 680 from about 1990. Year 1990. Lot of those guns sitting round not being shot these days.

    MIA, you have an opinion, but I have one that is opposite, I have shot a 101 the last 2.5 years and O/U and an unsingle, this combo got me to the back fence, with averages 96.25 singles 90 caps and 92 doubles, this past winter I moved to an MX10 top single combo, but the fact remains, these 101 fit some people rather well, I am 5' 9" 185 # and my wife is 5'4" 120# and she has the same combo and shoots it well. I sold my O/U and but still have the un-single because I could not keep a release trigger in the gun, pull trigger wise they are great, release well thats another problem. Any 101 I have owned I have been able to sell and get the same amount of money I spent on them. Scott

    It's not a very desirable gun at anywhere near the asking price. You'll take a bigger bath on it if it doesn't work for you than buying a good MX15 at $4g's. The MX15 holds it's value very well.
