Does anyone here freely admit to having an Arnold gun besides me. I see it gets maligned alot. Yes it is heavy as hell, kicks like a horse, and is expensive, but it looks cool, is fun to shoot using the hook, and mine actually groups slugs, birdshot, and buck fairly well for not having a choke. Even though i like it, I was thinking about getting something else. Any ideas for a comparable replacement?

... I too have a folder. High in cool factor but the damn thing has too many buttons, levers. switches, latches and clasps.

I agree. Mine didn't come with manual and I learned through trial, error and a safe backstop. Any places to find a manual, because I don't think I know how to use all the gadgets.

I think there's a manual online in pdf format somewhere, but I can't find it right now. I'll keep looking. I think one is here:

If anyone wants to sell, I might know of a guy that's interested.

dc899,

Try www.spas12.com for specifics (site has lots of interesting info for you) and www.biggerhammer.net/manuals/ in general.

I've got one. It has the folding stock w/hook, push-button safety, forward front sight, and 9-shot capacity.

If you get rid of it, pick up one of the Benelli M1014 shotguns. I have one of those as well, and while comparing the two I noticed that they are built on basically the SAME receiver.

Yep, I got one of the old style paddle safeties. Cool factor is way high and is a ball to shoot, the wife likes to shoot it but only with the stock down and from the hip. That metal on the "butt stock" is a little unforgiving on a small-frame female!
