Well as far as shooting it i love mine i got it for new 137.99 at Adcademy Sports. I have shot countless slugs buckshot and target shot for a full 4 hours and the barrel didn't really get so hot just warm. My shoulder on the other hand was so numb i couldnt feel the recoil
. AS for mods i would like to know what i could do for it but i never really since anything.
