Who has any experience with these? My LGS has the security model with ghost ring sights and 18.5" bbl for $200. I've been able to figure out that they are made by Stevens and then sold through Savage, although I'm not sure what all that entails, I've got a couple savage rifles that I like, especially for the price, but know nothing about their shotguns.
Judging from pictures and the lack of ejection port I see on the sides, I'm guessing it dumps the empties out the bottom, along the lines of the old Ithaca 37. Which would be a good feature for a left handed shooter I supposed. Personally I need another HD shotgun like I need a hole in my head, but there are some people I know I have considered buying HD shotguns as gifts. But obviously I'd want to give them something I know would work, so who has experience with these shotguns?
