Stopped by Mc Queeney Gun Club last weekend, has them on order but not in yet. Saw a couple on Gun Broker but they were asking way over MSRP

I think the nickel plated version is a pretty gun but check out this review.

I picked up an ethos last year and its amazing. I'm going to fondle the 828 this weekend. I hope if feels like crap so I don't have to buy one. Lol

I haven't handled one but the writer of the review clearly doesn't understand or appreciate lightweight shotguns. They are designed to be carried a lot and shot a little (it kind of rules out dove shooting). Lightweight guns put extreme pressure on technique and require superb fit. I'm someone whose chased pheasants all day with an 8 1/2 lb gun, I understand the attractiveness of a 6 1/2 lb gun, I currently have two side by sides that weigh 6 1/2 and 6 3/4 lbs.

Even with the bad review I picked up the 28inch nickel one yesterday. Looks nice...

I'm going to wait until they bust out the 20 gauge. But then again, I haven't put my hands on the new 828U 12 gauge.

Its weak, problematic ejection, vulgar aesthetics, high recoil and annoyingly violent gun movement is topped-off with a nosebleed price. This, despite its low build cost, means that the 828U is a product condemned to please no one.

Ouch

Looks like it came with a nice piece of wood, good luck and let us know how it shoots.

Where are you shooting today?
