When my son started shooting several years ago I didn`t know how serious he would be so I bought a fausti. It never failed that much I can say. Absolutley the worst trigger I have ever used in a gun. Must have been 10 pounds easy. The fit was so so for him. He did manage to shoot his first straight with it at skeet. Kicked like hell too. Personally I`d look for a good used beretta or browning. When I bought him some finer grade guns it was almost impossible for him to go back to it and shoot it with any decent results.
