    I just recently bought a Stevens 320 and have gotten some negative remarks from family and friends because of the ridiculously low price point. I have shot just over 300 shells through it with no issue, and to be honest it feels the same if not a bit more desirable than my fathers Remington 870 Wingmaster. Have you guys ran into any glaring issues with shotguns of such entry level value? Am I missing something?

    There can be, as quality control is lacking on a lot of these cheap imports like the 320. But not all cheap guns are bad. They are just busting your balls for the most part, if it works good for you, it works good for you.

    Hahahaha no we’ll have to disagree there. A Wingmaster is miles more refined and finer crafted than a 320….but they both still are pump action shotguns so they will feel similar to a new person. The 320 may also just fit your body type better.

    The 320’s are workhorses. Not the prettiest guns, but they function and go bang.

    Does anyone know if it’s true to aim low with shotguns?

    I shoot like a $300 Turkish Tristar and laugh when my friends Benellis and Berretas jam and fail… There are some great low cost shotguns out there.
