Excell Semi's

Ok, tell me the pros and cons of the H&R Excell semi-automatics. Is it made in China like a lot of their Pardners? Is it a knock-off on the Remington design? All I know is the price is right. Local Wally World( West Central FL ) has the SA 1-182 for around $ 320.00 plus tax.

Thanks

How much more is an American built Mossberg semi in that same gun rack? $80? I would easily spend $80-100 more for a brand of American manufacture. And yes there are a few imported models of Mossberg but they are obviously noted on the box and decals as "Mossberg International"...

Don't know anything about the Excell as all H&R (other than some singles for the most part) guns are re-branded import guns.

I personally have no desire to shy from my tried and true American brands.

Haven't priced a 930 or 935 yet, I too am a Mossburg fan and if my ship comes in I will buy either a 930 or 935. I just live a little far from the gulf to be able to see if the ship is coming in.

I think my ship was commandeered by pirates.

Well if my ship doesn't come in we always have "recovery summer II" to look forward to since "recovery summer I" wasn't worth a flip.

Well, if your ship is a rowboat there are loads of used semi-autos out there and a buddy of mine recently bought a Weatherby 20 ga semi-auto that has worked perfectly through several hundred rounds of testing on the trap range.

No, it isn't made in the USA but at least it didn't come from China.
