No matter how much trouble free actual experience you have with this gun somebody will squawk of their uncle's friend's step-brother's girlfriend's one-eyed father who had one that misfired and jammed. People seem to give other companies a pass, like the Gen4 ill fated introduction that Glock suffered and eventually corrected.
No, I said Glock. I wasn't aware that mass quantities of the VP70's were ever imported into the States, I understood the civilian Z-model went to Italy. If you have better information, then I stand corrected.
Are you able to get 7 rounds in each tube? Mine only fits 6, but almost has room for another. I'm using 2 3/4" shells, but I think they're hi-brass. Haven't tried any lo-brass birdshot yet. Maybe 7 of those will work? Either way, I like it.
