    I had one that I shot alot of quail with back in the early 80s. I do not miss the gun. I do miss having a viable excuse for missing birds.
    IMO, save your money

    Had one, got rid of it. Only one slide rail , mine kept binding. $100.00 if it's in like-new condition.

    Well.......that, just about says it all! For $100, it's better than a single shot. If you're willing to spend some money....get the 870! Bob

    My brother recently purchased the S & W 916-A from a friend for $100, and aside from a few spots of surface rust on the barrel it is in excellect condition. Moreover, I have read all of the comments on here and disagree with the gun being "junk," as we just took it to the range yesterday: it performed perfectly, and from 25 yards was putting pellets in the bullseye of targets used for turkey shoots. Furthermore, I just checked another site where the same gun (all the blueing was sanded off, the wooden pump was cracked, and someone had shortened the barrel by at least a foot: it was beat to death) sold in an auction for $140.01 + $35 USPS + $7.25 sales tax; which, comes out to roughly $180 for one that was in what they auction house termed "poor condition." In my opinion, if you can get the 916-A for $100 (in good condition) I would personally snatch it up. They do have a kick to them, especially with the 3" shells, but I personally think any S & W pump shotgun in good condition is worth $100. In fact, in this economy, the only safe investments are basically brand name firearms and precious metals (i.e. Gold, Silver, Platinum, etc.).

    I had one I bought at a gunshow for $150. I did have some irritating feed issues when pumping fast (target clays), but that seemed to clear up after I soaked the mechanics in ATF (transmission fluid) for a couple weeks as part of a through cleanup. I never shot it after that, but could not get it to fail when pumping/extracting live rounds for a test. I gave it to a close friend who has become more a family member now, he's proud as a peacock with it! For $100 bucks I'd pop for one.

    They are total junk, I tried one a friend of mine had, gave him $150.00 for it, two weeks later sold it back to him for $80.00 and was tickled
    to death he bought it. Buy a 870 or even a mossberg 500.
