Thumbs up new shotgun hits the streets

after being on the drawing boards for over 5 years, butler arms has introduced the worlds first un-barrel semi auto. this means the barrel is on the bottom and the mag tube is on top! with the centerline lower, it has less kick. hulls eject straight down.
the gun is called the XX12.
its going to be a rare one.
so if you guys like odd and unique guns....this is it!

I know some guys who paid more than that JUST for a custom stock for their trap gun

If it collected it's own hulls and made me coffee I'd buy it; but that kind of money would go to an O/U for sure. I generally avoid auto's anyway, I can shuck a pump shotty plenty fast.

One of my skeet buddies has a beautiful O/U that he had customized by three different shops/places so it fits him and even with 12g loads, it feels like you're shooting a .410. Full set of tubes and everything for $5000. now that I can relate to! but 7500 right outta the gate is too steep for me!
