My wife and I both have Maxus Sporting shotguns. They are great for our clay shooting use. They are the easies semi auto shotguns I've ever tore down to clean. We inherited a couple Belgian Browning A5's last summer. It was a two day job for me to compleately tear down both and clean up the insides good. I can do the same complete cleaning on our Maxus in roughly an hour. It's a great soft shooting shotgun but I've not used it in the field. Don't see any reason why it wouldn't be great there too though.
