So I'm thinking about getting a shotgun for basic shooting and defense. I know I have to get a longer barrel for the range I shoot at as well as wanting a relatively cheap autoloader.
So can anybody tell me anything at all about a CZ 712?

All info is appreciated, please and thank you!!

That IS a good post and all, I like how it was pointed out how to look for the fit. But I am looking for particular reviews on this particular shotgun. If I make up my mind, I'll "see if it fits" lol

Yeah I have googled It and cant seem to find much recent reviews. Found one said the CZ shotguns blow up, so that's why I came here. To see if anyone has any personal time with this shotgun

Guns blow up when you make foolish errors reloading. I believe my new shotgun is rated at 20,000 PSI working pressure... Most loads I make are about 11,000 if I remember correctly.

Gotcha. I was reading it was more of a firing pin malfunction, birthday review was from 06, so I'm kind of taking it as a grain of salt hoping I can get that figured out

@mana4real: that was tr end result from tr malfunction, they'd discharge while loading, blowing up the barrel in the process

Look at the Beretta AL 391 semi auto. You can pick up a used 1 in good condition for b/t $700-$800.
