Very cool.

I have both a Savage 720 (copy of the auto 5) and a Remington 81

I kind of inherited an Auto 5. It's pretty cool...

State of the art in the early 1900s. I bought one and was less then impressed. All steel and walnut but heavy, clumsy, and hard recoiling. There's no "feel" to the gun, especially for a shotgun. It was like shouldering and swinging a tool. I shot it one season and that was enough for me. There used to be an inordinate amount of them in Utah 40 years ago because of, I'm guessing, the Browning/Utah connection. Most of those I was associated with were handed down through families. A lot of folks liked them. But after the one I had it left a bad taste in my mouth.
