    I've always liked them, but never went for one because they have a bad reputation reliabitity-wise. Shooter, 3T, what's y'alls take?

    I traded a shotgun (Japanese) with a bud for it and haven't shot it yet.
    According to him if it got dirty it could jam but if kept clean and lubricated it functions fine and said if I wasn't happy he would trade back so I'm sitting good either way. He's a gun salesman at the LGS and gave me a receipt for it.

    Perks of having bought and traded with these guys for almost 30 years.
    Hell, thinking about it they should have given me the gun. :D
    Another benefit is they have a full time gunsmith on site.

    I have heard about reliability issues when fouled...and have handled one at a gun show, but never fired one...so, I can only go with hearsay.

    Like Mike says...keep it cleaned and lubed and it should run fine...

    What Japanese shotgun was it 3T...!?

    I had one with the barrel shroud for some time. Got it in a 2 for one gun swap at a show. Guy said he had bought it used and never got it to fire. Actual problem was that it would not chamber fully with the Winch. FMJs he gave me with it. After trying several more brands, only Rem FMJs would feed reliably. Also had a couple of the Cobray (Ingram) M-11 9 mils at the same time, cllosed bolt, semi-autos. The M11s were all steel and much heavier, but solid and reliable as hell with any crap ya fed them. Those came with the threaded fake supressor. Now legally termed "barrel extension." I liked those better than the Tec-9 cause the mag was in the grip. Made the gun much shorter. All were cool looking guns and much sought after during the first AWB. As far as usefulness, they were kinda lack luster. Just very big semi-auto pistols. When the first AWB was near it's end, I sold them all for a big gain. Figured the value would drop as it has done time and again after the damand is over. The thing I liked the most about them was that they "bump fired" like hell. The M-11s were really good for doing that and ammo was cheap then.
