I'm going to buy another one. Here's why...
I bought this shotgun for a hybrid home-defense/hunting gun. This firearm is a slightly above-average clone of a Remington 870. Most all aftermarket products manufactured for a Rem 870 will mate to the H&R clone almost seamlessly. However, I strongly recommend disassembling this firearm before cycling rounds and firing. I say this because it is simply smart gun craft to inspect each component, file down any burs/rough spots, and clean/oil each component individually. This doesn't take an

exceptionally deep knowledge of gunsmithing. The H&R clone is easily disassembled for maintenance and can be broken down within 30-45 seconds just like the Rem 870 variants. You can find step-by-step videos online. I have fired hundreds of various rounds through my now-tricked-out tactical H&R without a single FTF or FTE. Overall, my experience with this firearm has been positive. The only negative aspect I have noted, as with many other shotguns, is that any aftermarket forend with a vertical or angled grip component tends to wobble on the slide rails. Again, I experience this with many other modified variants(Mossberg, Remington, etc.), regardless of the brand of aftermarket forend. So, I can't really attribute that negative aspect solely to this make and model. Also, I am fairly certain that my positive experience with this firearm can be attributed to disassembly and de-burring the individual components. Given what I have noted about the firearm and my individual experience with it, I would recommend this firearm as an inexpensive clone of a generally reliable platform. I hope this review helps.
