Mine has been fired from a variety of unsupported positions, with very light loads and has functioned 100%. 2 3/4 dram loads from the hip make every stock auto-loading shotgun I know of malfunction, except this one. It functions when an M2 Benelli won't! The operating system is significantly different from previous Remington systems.
Good Shooting, MarkCO
