You're right Ronn, I couldn't have gotten a better response. That was one of the first times I've emailed someone on an issue I found BEFORE purchasing and they were straight up with me about it. I like to do my homework before I drop a couple hundred dollars on something only to find out that C.S. isn't exactly up to par.
Like I said earlier, I have used an older 870 and I loved how smooth it was and how well it handled. I'm looking forward to making this purchase and eventually getting it to smooth out and be a reliable piece of hunting equipment. Now if only the money would get here a little faster...haha
