Looked at 1 today in at my local just as clunky as my T1000 but it is quicker to use

I’m sure it would be quick, probably quicker than my 12 gauge pump. And obviously not everyone can have their cat c. That’s one ugly charging handle though.

Yes I've been sitting here wondering even with the straight pull how long before they kick up a stink and categories them as a C as well don't know whether they will buy them back or grandfather clause them with all these mobs getting around so-called legislation I can only see them letting us get away with it for a small amount of time .

The question is how stiff is the button.

gday fellas. i've had a bit of a play with one. most favorite of the lever/button/fairy dust release shotties so far. think i'm gonna buy it.

its priced well, well made (always thought the dickenson straight pulls where made well). button is very well positioned. naturally ambidextrous and not very stiff to press but requires a deliberate push.

thats a plastic spacer for shipping protection. the actual lever is a standard blade like you'd see on any semi auto

Good to hear. My mate said today that he thought button was too far forward but he's not a shotgun enthusiast

yeah the button is a tad too far forward and if you have small hands will need to stretch the thumb a little but its not exactly like theres many other places you could put the button. its the in the best spot so far. makes the bushmeister look inferior for sure

Thanks for that, I obviously haven’t actually seen one.
I reckon they’ll sell pretty well.

Wondering that too, haven't heard any owners thoughts on them yet. Certainly seem like it is better value for money compared to the buckmaster pb12, even with its price drop.

I've bought one, just waiting for the pta to process.
But I'm pretty keen, looks like it will be a good gun.
Be interesting to see how it compares to my buckmaster.
