I bought a secondhand RBL 28 ga with a problem. I sent it to them and they fixed the problem for free. Got a RBL professional slug gun and never had a problem with it. I have no complaints

I have a couple of CSMC guns and I am happy as can be. My Model 21 .22 rifle is as reliable and accurate as my old Mossburg .22 and my wife's Inverness is as beautiful as any graded Browning Superposed, and is reliable to boot. My point is that these guns are for customers that have lots of disposable income and a willingness to trade them off if not satisfied. Mine are not for sale. I am a bit disappointed that I didn't buy a pair of C Grade CSMC Foxes when offered at $5650 each. I would have been willing to wait a while for those.

Since this thread came up I have a current comment or two. In a fit of careless stupidity I recently allowed the ventilated rib on a 20 gauge A-10 to get bent. They received the barrels yesterday afternoon and I received a call 20 minutes ago that they will be on their way back to me tomorrow. About ten years ago I personally took an A-10 in for a minor ejector timing problem...wasn’t a biggie, just slight enough that since I was back that way I thought I would take it by and leave it with them. They said if you can stick around a while we’ll do it while you wait. I left with it one hour later. During that time I heard them test fire a box of shells through it, they also replaced all the springs, etc. Total cost was zero. I have never had any poor experiences with them or their shotguns.

I have a RBL Launch I picked up from bobby. He had 3 of them and this one was never fired. NIB. I have run about 200 rounds through it with never a issue.

I got each RBL as they came available and have had no issues with any of them. The original RBL-12 I got was exactly what I had ordered but when I got it it was just too heavy and the handling wasn't to my liking. So, I took it with me to The Vintage Cup and spoke with Lou about it. He said to leave it with him and he would see what he could do. Said it might take a while. A few months later I got a phone call while on my way to shoot sporting clays from a lady at CSMC that a package was on its way to the FFL on file with my account. A few days later I had one of the light weight RBL-12s built on the RBL-16 frame.

Researcher, how light was light? That gets my attention. Sounds like it might be an interesting gun for me.

My original RBL-12, straight grip, double trigger, 32-inch, tipped the scales at 8 pounds 14.7 ounces. More than my 32-inch Super-Fox. The second one, straight grip, double trigger, 30-inch barrel weighs 7 pounds 4.9 ounces. Certainly not light by British game gun standards. Interestingly they are both chambered for 3-inch 12-gauge shells. I wouldn't want to shoot many 1 7/8 ounce 3-inch Magnums in the light gun!!

Reseacher, for a 12 on a 16 frame, I certainly would not expect a gun over 7 lbs, or one over 6.5 for that matter. I'm surprised that they weigh so much. No, I would not want to shoot 1.875 oz mags in a sub7# gun or ANY gun frankly, though I've shot a fair number of them and even a few 2 oz loads in a Merkel before I realized just how unnecessary it was for what I do.

I am searching for a new gun but my needs are different.

Thanks for the response though.

I also have a light weight 28" RBL-12 which I specifically ordered when they became available. Even with the changeable buttplate it weighs 7 pounds even. Very nice wood on it, too.
