I have a buddy that has one and loves it. I also know someone looking to sell one. Not to sure on the specifics but I know it has nice looking wood and engraving and comes with 2 sets of barrels 20 ga and 12 ga I know he likes the gun but got a browning o/u that he could not pass up. Let me know and I can get you ahold of the guy.

I had looked at the Silver Reserve at Gander Mountain a few months ago and liked the looks. I googled the gun and found some reviews not to my liking. Many of the reports were consistent in saying that the inside of the chamber tends to start rusting very soon, even with cleaning. There were also people who like the gun. I decided to go with a used Browning Citori to be safe.

I am a big fan. I picked one up as an entry level O/U and cant say anything bad about it. At $550.00 I can beat the tar out of it and it wont bother me too much. In fact the first thing I did when I got it home was scratch it with a key just to get it out of the way. I hunt thick cover for grouse and it was going to happen some day.

With a high end gun like a browning or some of the Italian o/u'ers I think I would spend more time on the trail to keep from scratching it.

But they are what they are. A good, well made, entry level gun. I dont regret getting mine, and have had a good expetience so far. I would like to find some after market choke tubes, but that is my only gripe.

My only recommendation would be to shoulder it, let it down shoulder it and if it fits ya and you like it go for it. I had a benelli pump, but bought it on name alone, when I realized I couldn't shoulder it, without it getting caught up under my armpit or caught in my jackets, I gave it to a friend with longer arms. My remingtons have a shorter stock than the benelli and fit me better, especially once you add a few layers of clothing.

i love mine and i to read reviews on the gun but once i went to scheels and they had a brand new one and a "used"one that someone had won and traded it in so it was 200 off the regular price so i got it the only thing i would tell you is if you buy it shoot it with all chokes as mine varies greatly between shooting lead and steel but once i figured it out it was deadly on pheasants

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
