    I have one, and I love it. Mine is the normal stock configuration. Aftermarket support is a little on the weak side, and that is probably the gun's biggest downfall.

    But, mine has been reliable, and accurate. It shoots fast, and feeds every shell I have tried. For a HD shotgun, I think it is great. My GF enjoys shooting it more than my other shotguns because the action helps soak up some of the recoil. With just a bit of practice you can hit clays reliably with the ghost ring sights.

    What else do you want to know?

    I bought the "Blackwater" edition and have only been out with it once. I like the looks and feel of the gun but had several jams using Federal 2 3/4" Federal 00 Buckshot. I'm going to take it apart and clean and lube it up good. I have A LOT of rounds of the Federals so I'm dissappointed that it wouldn't cycle through them without failling.

    Did you clean and lube it before you shot it?

    Mine has handled low and high brass birdshot, high brass 00 and slugs without an issue. I have never tried the Federal 00 though.

    The Blackwater one looks like it has slightly different sights, and the engraving, and those are the major differences.

    No, I didn't clean it before shooting it. It handled some loose birdshot that I had fine. I put 25 of the Fed Buckshot through it and it jammed 3 times.

    I have a 930 (not the SPX) with the same gas system. I've had no problems at all.

    Are the Federal rounds you have low recoil?
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    I don't think that they are reduced recoil. I bought three ammo boxes of them:
