I had four Peerless. Never had a problem with any of them, except, on one I got Remington to remove the filler between the barrels. The only problem was that when the gun was fired it rang like a bell. Remington re-installed it for me. I used these guns and the upgrade Sporting model for many years. Never a failure. I shot these in Sporting events every weekend for many years.. I still have a 30 inch one and will keep it. Great field gun and sporting gun for me.
It is the worst piece of junk that remington has ever made, my father had one, it would double sometimes, not fire the second barrel others, after going back to remington 3 times, and it not being repaired, had a 1 month fight with them, and they finally took the gun back, and gave him the money that he paid for it.
