IMO, the only thing these have going for them is being cheap. All are clones of US made shotguns, which are often available used for less than what these cost at the box stores.

While some seem to be well made and trustworthy, how do you know how yours will last? And if it doesn't, how sturdy and likely is manufacturer support going to be?

Used 870s, 500s and 37s last way longer than we do. In fact, I've not seen many of the classics worn to the point where a rebuild was needed, and some have well over 50K rounds through them. But then, I've only done this for 53 years or so.

Buy American....
