Looking for feedback from anyone on the forum that has used one, or owns one. I've heard some good things by some reputable folks. Handled one as well and it felt really nice.

Specifically the Waterfowler.

Everything that I've read says that Fabarms makes quality shotguns. They also used to make shotguns sold under the H&K brand which I would regard as a positive sign.

Yes.. I do remember that. Now they are under the Caesar Guerini flag somehow. Not sure to what extent.

One of the recommendations was to consider this over the A400 Xtreme from the standpoint of recoil and the gas system.

A member of the principal ownership family of Fabarm married a members of the principal ownership family of Caesar Guerini. I don't think they're merged but there's a lot of interconnections.

I’m pretty sure Cesar Guerini has an equity stake in FABARM. I don’t own a Waterfowler but my next shotgun purchase will be a Waterfowler. I do have an L4S and it is my favorite shotgun.

I'm about to pull the trigger on one (no pun there).

They've got the kryptic camo and also to the Viper pattern. I held their sporting clay XLR5 that had the blue Viper and it looked nice... so I'll probably go with the Viper Camo if I do this.
