Default Stevens Model 555 O/U

I've been thinking of picking up an O/U shotgun in 20 GA. Looking at a basic model, nothing expensive. Have any of y'all had any experience with the Stevens model 555?

No, but after handling a few I sent with the CZ Teal from Cabelas. On sale for $599 from $849. I bought a 12 and a 20. I wasn't impressed with the Stevens.

I had a Stevens at one point looked really nice, but didn't have the auto ejector chingasos. So had to pull the fired rounds after each shot. The more I shot it the more I disliked it.

I bought one last January. I used it for 6 days in New Mexico quail hunting. For the price I couldn't have been more pleased with the gun.

I got a flyer from Cabela's that they have this deal going again coming up. Nice guns for the money.

The light weight of this shotgun is one thing that caught my attention. How is the recoil?

Recoil is not a problem. The weight is the number one reason I purchased it.
