What to you think of them. I always thought they looked cool, but I wanted to know if they had any feeding issues.

And if they are worth the $$$ and NFA wait.

They are very fun and very reliable. I would recommend it highly. The only drawback is you need a Destructive Device dealer to get one, not just a Class 3 SOT. Class 3's cannot deal in DDs, so you need to go to a higher pay-grade to facilitate the transfer. DD dealers can be hard to come by and tend to be more expensive because of it.

I know a local guy who has one. He had it before they were considered a DD, and got to register it with the BATF tax-free.

I handled it, but never got to shoot it. It was definitely a bulky shotgun, but would probably be fun if you've got the extra cash lying around. The full-auto version would be even more fun, but I believe that they are all post samples.

i bought one at gun show in Miami a long time ago (10 years or so) when I lived there.I paid alot of money and it would not fire a full mag or drum reliable.We tried everything and people to get it to run.I got rid of it and wish it was in hell and had a receipt for it there.Maybe mine had problems and that's why it was for sale,but I will stick with benelli or rem. 870.

i shot one on f/a with the will county sheriff's swat team weapon's demo. very fun day. mp5 wsa the best.

anyway, out of 20 of is there was no malfunctions. its fast, most of my rounds were high and right. a lot went over the berm OUCH. Neat for movies and stuff. I don't know why Will County had it. They must be nuts like me. At the end of the day, this huge deputy shows up and the weapons demo guys lets him shoot it, too. He stands into it with bbl a little low and racks off a 10 rounds mag. All center hits. WOW! We were impressed.

rare for any mayor or county board to loook at that as a wise expenditure, now.


EDIT**Ican make my benelli s90 run just as fast if I don't care what i'm hitting. that would be a cheaper route :)

I've owned both semi and full auto USAS-12's. Shot hundreds of rounds through them without any problems at all. What's the going rate for one,now?

I just bought one for $1,800 but asking prices seem to be more like $2,500 these days.
