Our Assessment: This pump action shotgun features a convenient top-tang safety and bottom ejection for ambidextrous operation. It is a very well balanced shotgun and has a great feel. Browning’s website states that “The receiver forms a “roof” over the action– there is no opening on either side for an ejection port, so a drenching rain won’t drip into the action. When you shoot, bottom ejection makes sure there are no empties flying to the side, across your line of sight to distract your aim. With this set-up and lead or bismuth shot, you could be ready for turkey hunting. Please see our photos and good luck!
