Been seing this Stevens 320 pump advertised at Academy but they sell so fast I couldn't check it out....I happened to go into "china" mart a couple day's ago and saw 1 in the display for $180 so I got it...haven't shot it yet though.

Anyone familiar with this shotty...
It's light with polymer Benelli m4 like profile.

It's a Chinese made clone of the Winchester 1200/1300. The Winchester competed with the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 Express, pulling a distant third. People seem to have a love-hate relationship with the 1200/1300, mostly because it was designed as a cheaper to manufacture replacement to the Winchester Model 12. As for actual utility, I have no personal experience with them.

The Win 1200/1300 series are good guns, with a rotating bolt head that locks into the barrel extension similar to the AR 15.
They can use aluminum receivers with this design, thus the wear and mar gods are not very kind.

I still prefer 870 Wingmasters.
