Century Arms SxS 12 guage

Does anybody know about these?

It is a 20 inch barrell, with exposed hammers, made in China.

They have them at Dunhams around here for $200, look like a great CAS gun.

Hey Morgan, I've had (2) of them, the first would not extract
without beaking the gun over my thigh. The second did the same thing and would automatically engage the safety upon shootin! And it also had alot of play on lockup. I just thank god that Big 5 took the pos's back! Be careful amigo!

P.S.Even the manager of Big 5 said they were really meant to be wall hangers!

Well thank you Scatter

But as usual, i went and got it after I posted, it is actually a pretty solid piece,

I got to the range today, and it shot pretty well, ejection was stick at first, but loosened up a little, after a couple rounds, (was also using some cheap no name ammo, that i blamed for some of the sticking. Hopefully i got a decent one, sorry to hear about yours.
