Finally

Bought a Remington semi-auto 12ga, at auction, last month.

Finally got it, today.

First impressions:

Looks great
Very forward heavy. Most of the weight is in the forearm
Buttstock is plastic, very light.
Recoil pad is thin, hard rubber

Claims to cycle ANY 12ga shell. 2 3/4", 3", or 3 1/2". This will ne tested, soon.

My thought, those heavy, 3 1/2" loads are going to KICK

It will not cycle light loads without a gas seal activator. Or an oversized O ring.

Remington SPR

Made by Baikal

It was cheap, on auction. More interested in it feeding 3" and having the 3 1/2" capability.
Light loads, I will most likely carry a 20ga.

Couldn't pass on the price.
