I'll second that ,as I own a couple and they can do a better job of slice and dice than a Colt .45 or M1 .

Welcome from Texas. They might shoot a bit better when clean, but back in the 70's our PD kept them in the trunk of their Crown Vic Patrol cars and only brought them to me once a year to clean up and test fire. lol I was always surprised at the abuse they could take.

It wasn't until a new Chief in the early 80's that they were replaced with 870's. Pretty cool pump nonetheless.
