Thank you.

Much thanks. The gun looks extremely nice but I think I will pattern it before I purchase it just to be sure.

What price is on it? This may the important factor as you can experiment with loads/different brands and get it to pattern right.

He wants 200 for it. The pattern was decent for skeet but kinda wide for hunting. I will have to think on this one.

That is not a bad price. I'd buy it for that.

I have a friend that has a Zabala and it has not given him any problems.

Not a great gun - probably won't hold up if you use it for sport shooting - but you "sound" like you would use it for hunting.

For $200 it is a no brainer. You get to find out if you like an O/U on the cheap. If you don't like it I am sure you can sell it for more than $200.

From your comment, I suspect it is fixed - so I understand - even so it will go bang and knock stuff down.

I wish I had a friend that would sell me an O/U for $200.
