Newer Winchester 101's made in Belgium...opinions?

I cannot find much data about the newer Winchester 101 shotguns...my searches mostly find info about the older ones. The newer models have invector plus choke tubes andappear to be made in an fn plant. I have seen a lot of comments about the 101 not holding up under heavy "target use" as well as brownings or what not. What about these newer ones as theyappear to be made in the same factory as old brownings.

What say you?

I've had good luck with fn products. They are owned by the same parent company as browning and winchester.

I like the "new" 101's. A guy in my squad shoots one he really likes it. good build quality, few casting of forging marks. If the stock fits you I would say go for it.
