I bought this gun in Jan 2011, before I even used it it malfunctioned. Put the barrel on, pulled back the bolt and it wouldn't come all the way back. Field stripped it right there, put it back together and went hunting. While out that day the gun malfunctioned three times. Every time on the third round the trigger jammed. Sent it back to Winchester, they said they fixed it by putting in a new trigger. I took it out and had the same problem. Sent it back to Winchester and they sent me a whole new gun. Took it out to test fire it at my trap club only to have the trigger and the safety both jam on the 28th round. On both guns, when the guns were stripped down you could see where the bolt was striking the receiver and knocking off metal, which was obviously falling into the trigger assembly and jamming it. Winchester has been very good about it. I sent the gun back and they're refunding my purchase price. I really did like the gun, but the design needs to be overhauled. I just bought a Benelli SBE II, I hope this works out, the design is something I've never seen before.
