Winchester Select O/U

I have handled it but not shot it. It comes to shoulder for me very nice. Any experiences with them? good or bad, I'm referring to the "made in Belgium" guns. As I am saving up for a quality O/U, I already have experience with Browning & Beretta and would like info on the Winchester. Thanks in advance for y'alls help.

My opinion is that the fit and finish on many of the new Belgian made Winchesters is actually sub-par for the prices they are asking for them... They are not finished as well as my Japanese built 101, Brownings or my Berettas... They may be great guns but they are not worth Winchester's asking price on aesthetic grounds... I've looked at the Belgian made 101 Field and Sporting and I did not think they were finished as well as grade I Citori or Beretta 686 Onyx... The wood to metal fit on both guns was unacceptable as was the quality of the bluing...
