The 1400s never had a very good reputation for durability. If you really want a used semi-auto, a Remington 1100 would be much preferable, or a Remington 58, or an 11-58.

I bought my Father a 58 years ago, and it came back to me when he died. I've had to replace some of the small parts (a spring and an extractor, but the great thing about that is that so many of the parts are interchangeable with Remington's models today.
