I just bought one last week. Only got one round of clays on it, so I can't speak for the longevity. I read a bunch of reviews online, and most all were positive. My thoughts are if Weatherby's putting their name on it, it can't be all that bad. Plus, for the price, you can buy a couple of them before adding up to one Caesar Guerini. I did enjoy shooting it, and I like the adjustable comb.
