    About right. Not great, not getting screwed.

    ETA: is it new?

    Pass.

    On second thought, as long as it was mint, it's still not butt-rapey. It's a fantastic shotgun. But $500 or $550 would be more to my liking for a used one.

    Yeah I'm gonna move him down, if he won't move I won't get it, I can snag a new one for 650 or so.

    Meeting the dude with the gun in a few I'll let yall know how it goes.

    He came down 60 bucks and threw in 200 rounds of ammo, mostly birdshot but some buck and slug.

    He said he'd had it for 2 years and never shot it even to test it. I dunno about that but its super clean for sure.

    I've wanted one of these for a while so I went for it. Best deal or no its mine now.

    That's good... Very good.
    Oil it up, hand cycle it a lot.  Then just BLAST the hell out of it.

    Planning on slipstreaming it later tonight then tomorrow afternoon go and run through about 1/2 of the stuff he gave me, plus doing some patterning with the buck and slugs I'm planning on keeping in it.

    Thanks for the help guys range report to follow this weekend!

    I don't think you did too bad.  Even if you bought one new for $650, you need to add $40 more for sales tax.  So over all, you saved over $100 and probably got another $50 worth of ammo.  I hear they are great shotguns.

    Range Day was successful.

    It was raining, there were people on the range I like to use for this stuff so I was stuck on another range less useful but I made do and had fun.
    All shots were taken at almost exactly 15 yards, verified with my Laser Range Finder.
    Did some patterning with various buckshot loads with some interesting results.


    Federal 3" FCW 00buck 12 pellet


    Federal 2 3/4" No FCW 00 Buck 9 pellet


    Remington 2 3/4" 00 Buck 9 pellet


    Winchester/Olin 2 3/4" 00 Buck 9 pellet


    Spartan 12ga 00 buck 9 pellet

    I started with what I expected to be the best patterning load, the Federal Flight Control Wad 3" 12 pellet load.


    4 1/4" spread, the shot-cup stuck in the the target stand lol. As expected FCW shells operate consistently and reliably. 

    Next Federal standard non-flight control wad buck.

    I was really surprised by this loading, and not in a good way. On no target I fired with it could I find more than 6 pellet holes I fired shots all the way out to 25 yards and never found more than 6 pellets and the wadding on the target. All I can figure is that either the spread is insane or that 3 of the pellets are being stuck inside the wadding. This was my most disappointing round tested just because I had higher expectations.

    Remington was up next.

    11" spread, this was more than I expected from my last series of tests.

    Winchester/Olin

    This was better than I expected from my last tests at 8 1/4"

    And finally the "Spartan" ammo

    On this shot it pattered out at 10 1/2" which surprised me coming in between the Remington and OLIN. So I fired a few more. The patterns moved between 10" and 18" kind of randomly.
    But, this round would not reliably eject roughly 1 in 3 would not extract.

    After some inspection I believe the problem lies with the rim of the cartridge:

    Please pardon my crappy camera work, but if you look at the rim the Spartan shell has a much less defined rim than the Federal shell. I believe this is the factor leading to the FTEs.
    I don't even know that I would qualify these rounds for range work they are wholly unreliable. I'm going to run the remaining 10 I have through my pumps to see if they work ok but I am not expecting them to.

    So I can't get this thing to zero with slugs.

    Even maxing out my elevation and the front sight, no dice 6" high at 25m and still high at 100.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You could try the Reduced Recoil tactical slugs.
    Or...

    I might do the red dot thing.
    Just frustrating to not be able to use those nice rifle sights until your out past 100yds.
