The Stevens 512 Gold Wing 12 Gauge w/28" Barrel Over/Under Shotgun is a beautiful shotgun having blued with gold-attributed finish and a walnut stock with checkering. The receiver has a gold pheasant engraving. This over/under comes with a 3" chamber, carbon steel barrels, 5 choke tubes, and vent rib with front bead sight. Accepts 2-3/4'' or 3'' shells.

I bought this gun as a skeet gun. For me it is great it doesn't cost a ton but shoots great. Works so well I picked up another one that was just 6 months old for $350. I will be trying it on upland birds come fall. The only issue I have come across is when new it is stiff and you really have to make a point to open it all the way to cock it or it doesn't fire.

I just could not bring myself to pay $1500 - $2500 for a shotgun to put through the abuse that I dole out while out in the field. This is a great gun for the price, and I am very pleased with its performance. For ~$600 I am fine with actually using it no matter what the conditions - snow, sleet rain ... I have no doubts that it will be well worn. At some point, I will buy the shotgun equivalent of a "garage queen" - for those perfect days, but for now I will go the lower cost route, with no guilt about nicks and dings.

well your friend should maybe look into stuff before telling you that....anyway I have more then one o/u and have shot Winchester ammo with the silver metal and brass ones and have never had any shell stick in the gun from cheep junk shells to 35$ a box shells....see all o/u have ejectors or extractors that lift the shell when you open the gun chance of any shell sticking is slim......the Stevens is a great gun love it more then my browning.....hope this helps you
you get five chokes two in the gun and three in a little box with the wrench......full.... mod.. imp mod....cyl....cyl improved....great all around gun I have the one with the silver receiver very hard to find.....the black looks nice in the picture and would work just as well I am sure
