    Has anyone tried the Winchester 101 Pigeon Grade trap shotgun? What do you like and dislike about it?
    Thanks

    They shoot very "flat". Sort of a copy of a Beretta 682/687 series, but the grip is a little farther to the rear. You'll want the 30" pipes, and buy good chokes for it. The side ribs will come loose if you shoot heavy (3 1/4 dr. pigeon) loads. Not a bad gun, especially at that price range. I've owned two. GAP

    I shot trap with the Select for most of this past season. I believe it to be a well built shotgun because it has the same barrel system as the Browning. The two main problems I had was the fit of the stock wasn't right for me and making changes didn't do me much good. The other problem was that after I bought the gun I couldn't find anyone to make release triggers. What I did was make my own and it was quite a chore.

    If you don't need release triggers and you find the fit to be good then you shouldn't have any trouble. Also, someone could be building releases by now.

    I sold mine and converted back to pull triggers for the buyer so I have a one-off set that I can install for someone with one of these guns. Too much work and expense to make them in numbers.

    I have had a select energy trap for two years now. Shoots flat, right where you point it. Great gun I shoot shoot alot of heavy loads for games. Has held up good so far. For the price it is worth it.
