Thank you, it has seen many ducks hit the water. Hogue makes a very durable product. Grip when I need it and comfort in cold and wet conditions.

The trigger appears a marine magnum. I recently had a improper Cerakote application and took a wheel brush to the entire shotgun for refinishing. Until then I keep the rust off with a steel brush and CLP.

I bet the action is silky smooth, nice shotgun. I like a 26 inch barrel.

Definitely looks like a duck killing machine.I was wondering if the hogue grips make the gun heavier or lighter.
What's the weight and how's the recoil with 3" steel?

Yes, smooth action and a heavy trigger. The gun has a nice heft to it which I have found reduces felt recoil.

I generally run 3’’ 2 shot though I also shoot BB at geese and 4 shot at close ranges. I haven’t found a shell I can’t cycle. My go to loads are Federal Premium Blackcloud.
