Read many reviews on this shotgun before I purchased it and at the time, could not find one bad thing about this gun. So I jumped aboard and purchased the synthetic 20 gauge for my daughter. Wouldn't feed properly and wouldn't eject anything with either piston I tried and with different ammo. Cleaned, lubricated and cleaned gas ports and still wouldn't fix problem. Must have run 75 rounds through gun too to see if there was a break-in period. Still....nothing but failures. Sent back to manufacturer through Bass Pro. Been about 4 weeks now and haven't heard anything yet.

by Jimmythetulip A GREAT Purchase
I worked right out of the box. I shot 5 boxes at clays and hit 90%. That is VERY good for me. It is light and throws and tracks with ease. LOVE IT!!!!

I needed a lightweight 20 ga autoloader for my wife and I found this Weatherby. It's just a shade over 6 lbs.
She's already ran a case of target loads through it, shooting trap, skeet and 5 Stand. The gun worked almost flawlessly. A couple minor stovepipes but nothing out of the ordinary for a new autoloader.
I used one of the stock shims to adjust the drop at heel for her. Like most synthetic stocks, shortening can be problematic. But I managed to fit it with a shorter recoil pad which got it about right.
The "carrier lever' was new to me and I don't see a need for it but isn't bothersome.
With 3 choke tubes, the stock shims, and it's low price, it's a great shotgun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJustin Quality Semi-Auto Shotgun
I went into the BPS this year and told the guy I wanted a decent semi-auto. I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg, but I didn't want to buy trash either. He pointed me straight to this gun immediately. Boy was he right. This is a quality semi-auto (especially for the price). This gun comes with two different pistons; heavy and light, which is really cool. I usually keep the heavy on there, but I've had it struggle to eject ONE type of dove shell EVER. It took me about 45 seconds to change the piston, and it started spitting them out no problem. Not only would I recommend this gun to a friend, I have. He hunts with it too and loves it.
I told the BPS guy when I bought it that I would probably upgrade in a few years. I would now like to retract that statement. I'm not sure why I would ever need to get a different gun.
