Drove 650 miles/ 15 hours today but I got my holy grail shotgun.

Recommended Posts

12g greener GP.  Saw it Last night on gun broker( eBay for guns). It had a buy it now I was happy with so I headed out around 4am.  Just got back and blasted some boxes in the back yard. I know you guys have plenty of them but they are very rare here.

Wait what!  That is literally the only reason I bought it.  I shot 75rds of bird shot into the hill behind my house last night for the sole purpose of racking the lever hard as I could to sling the shell out.

I don't know the reason behind it, I'm sure someone on here will though. 

All I'd ever read/seen/heard was not to do it. 

P.s that's half the reason I brought mine too.

Compared to other ones. I have seen $700 ones that where straight rusted.

I thought it was meant to slide back up, not fly all they way out lol, that's what I was told anyway. Hasn't stopped me yanking it.

The gun shop YouTube channel done a good video on these, it's worth watching. When we went in one of the lads in the shop actually owned both the ones featured.
