Our Assessment: This is a neat little C&R eligible pump action .410 shotgun that would be great for a recoil sensitive shooter or expert Skeet shooter tired of all those guys bragging about their Model 42s. The .410 bore guns throw the least weight of shot, resulting in a very low recoil, reduced pattern and easy to handle pump shotgun.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R eligible shotgun can be transferred in California.
