The pump is a bit less smooth, not as quick, and can have an occasional feed problem when shooting fast if you short stroke. Never had an issue over thousands of rounds with the BL-22.
I see Browning has a BL-22 model with a 16" barrel . How's the trigger on the it? Of course none of these are going to be match triggers.

[EDIT] Found a YouTube stating it was about 6.25 pounds. The Remmy has the same trigger as the 870 (if I understand correctly) and that's about 5.5 pounds.

[EDIT 2] Ok - the 16" barrel model has a 12" LOP. I am young at heart, but not that small.
