  1. Hi folks, I am contemplating the possibility of buying either the Montelfaltro 20 ga or the Ultra Light 12 ga. (with a 24" bbl) I want to use either one as an "all-purpose' gun, i.e., upland game, turkey, deer, and even some waterfowl. Am I stretching it a bit if I were to utilize either one as an all-purpose shotgun? Which one would you choose for this purpose? Thank you kindly in advance. Regards, Robert
  2. Interesting.. I will give this a try... What about also trying with clays but have your clay partner decide when/where to launch? Perhaps even set up so that the clays are launched into and between trees/shrubs, etc...
  3. Did you ever end up patterning your gun? You should also be practicing having your gun in a low carry position and snapping it up to shoot quickly and accurately. If you are misaligning your gun on the draw it doesn't really matter what choke you have in it because the gun isn't shooting where you think it is at that point anyway. I have patterned it... can you explain the "misaligning" comment please?
  4. So is the item # 16611 the one I should go with? http://www.choketube.com/mobilchoke.html They seem well priced compared to the others.. thanks
  5. I guess I missed that in the owners manual.. need to check again I looked at that link. Somewhat confusing.... I am still not sure which choke to order... I suppose IC will do for now... Only reason I ask is b/c the grouse have all been close range and I missed the 3 that I shot at.. the others that were flushed I didn't even have a chance at a good shot.. lots of heavy cover plus my inexperience is making this very challenging but lots of fun! thanks for the info.
  6. Hey guys, I've gone out on two grouse hunting trips - what a challenge! Very quick birds and nearly impossible to hit in tight (thick) cover... I gave been using the IC choke that came with my gun (Nova pump). I have read that a wide pattern is best for thick cover and quick,adept birds, like grouse.. Can I remove my choke altogether in order to achieve an even wider pattern or is this not advisable? I m using 7 1/2 shot (2 3/4) thanks!
  7. What do you mean by #1? The damage? can u explain please?
  8. Yes, I did have the problem the very first time so I didn't put it into the wrong hole... It's defected.. nothing should be that difficukt.. It almost had to be hammered in I am taking it back first chance I get this week...
  9. 150 it was filthy trudge through swamp, bush, etc.. fell at least two times.. gun was in mud, etc.. it rained here all weekend either way, it doesn't make a difference.. had i put the cleaning off, it still would have been a sticky pin
  10. NO I didn't use pliers... I used the magazine tube cap.. that's what the instructions say to use... The pin was sticking out half way.. I tried for 10 mins to get it out... it woudn't come out.. so I pulled it out with pliers Either way, it SHOULDN'T be that difficult to take out..
  11. Damage has been done.. I am thinking of bringing it back...
  12. It chipped because I had to force the pin out, as I stated... the pin is the big problem. I am 200lb + and I work out. I am a pretty fit guy... I have to put almost my entire weight into the magazine tube cap (whihc btw, is wearing out too now...) within a year, that entire area will be worn out, chipped.. the pin heads will erode on my as I an forced to pull it out with pliers. has anyone else encountered this problem????

  14. Hi guys, For those of you following my posts, you'd know that I just bought a Nova Pump. I believe the trigger guard is defected and I am pretty peeved b/c I've chipped my camo on my Max 4 while trying to dislodge the pin. I've cleaned the gun twice, each time removing the trigger assembly as per instruction. It seems like the pin cannot get through hole w/o an incredible amount of force applied on my part. Now before people suggest that I've put the wrong pin into the wrong hole, I double a d triple checked it. It is the correct hole (the pin hole closer to the barrel) The pin/hole behin
