    Looking at a used Valmet 2 barrel set. 34" single and a 26" 2 barrel. Don't know anything about this make of gun. It looks like a quality gun. But don't know for sure. Thought maybe I could get some help from a few readers that know alot more about trap guns then me. That is about everbody that is on this site. Thanks

    Jesse, They are quality built guns. One thing to look out for is loose rib. They are famous for it.Also expensive to fix for a fairly reasonable gun. Bill

    I have had success with attaching a loose rib on a 412 single barrel using Loctite black max 380.I own two of these receivers and four barrel sets and use the trap combo for ATA and the 30" o/u for skeet.I like the guns.fwiw

    I've got a friend of mine that has run about 200,000 shells through his. The only thing he has replaced is one extractor....
