Rated excellent. One of the best shotguns for mallard hunting. Nice iron site.

i was wondering why I got zero points when firing 3 shells at the double clay range. Followed up on it and 2 is the limit, wish I knew this before buying the gun. Even with less recoil and the weird f3 site picture I still do better with the double. As far as hunting, the range is kind of weak,anyone have success with ptarmigan? Seems like the 16 or 20 would be perfect for those smaller species.

I have used it on ptarmigans but find my .17 or .22 more effective with airborne ones..... that will tell you all I suppose.... :lol:

I have an 88% hit and 103% kill ratio with this weapon after more than a 1000 kills, I don't see what's wrong with it.

Well I do like the .17 on geese and ducks,but not sure my skill level is up for airborne ptarmigan,maybe with the .22. Hmm well maybe I need to give it more time before tossing it,but it seems like ducks in that 25-35m range that die from my o/u just fly away. I’ll give it more time though

I’m starting to lean in your direction after harvesting 8 geese with 7 shots. Lacks the range of a 12 gauge but within 35 yards the quick follow up shots not only because of the. Shots but the recoil allows you to follow up much quicker.

I find it good particularly for geese. I really like the clean uncluttered bead sight. The only shotgun I find better is the 12g primal.
How cool would it be to migrate the 12g semi auto version of the 20g, over from primal as well.
Old hunters never die.They just sit around the campfires and tell the biggest lies.

Love the quick shooting ability of the 20GA, but the range suffers imo over other shotgun choices. I seam to be able to hit things from further away with all other shotguns and I own both as I wanted to get out right away to hunt the new Magpie and bought the bundle that I really did not need. Had I waited 1 day... But I got the current top Magpie as a reward so I cannot complain to much.

How 20 GA works?
Well, you fire, the duck escapes. This happens again and again. Much later you harvest a duck and see that you had hit it twice already.
