Which OVER/UNDER?????

Ok so yesterday i was looking at buying either a semi or an over under shotgun. I have now decided i want an over under. With that said, anybody know of a good over under that doesnt cost an arm and a leg? maybe something under $500? Im going to try and find something used at grices and bobs army navy.

I just picked up a used CZ-USA Canvasback for $550. I know they make a model under that called a Mallard.

Re: Which OVER/UNDER?????

If you can find a Traditions, go with that. They're made by Fausti in Italy and are in that price range. There is a guy on gunbroker from Warren Ohio selling some. They seem to be pretty reasonable. The vast majority of O/U's in the price range you're looking at are Turkish guns, CZ's included, although the quality control on the CZ's is better than the other Turk guns. O/U's are inherently expensive to make and is why they are so much more expensive than a semi or pump. You get what you pay for. If you can swing a used Beretta/Browning/Ruger, I'd personally go that route. But, if I had what limitations you mentioned, I'd try for the Traditions first then the CZ.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

I just watched a show and the guy was using one called the CZ-USA Woodcock.

Re: Which OVER/UNDER?????

I'm confused--which can happen with little effort ---but it sure seems like this thread has a stuttering problem--there is two of them

Treat people as if they're what they ought to be & you help them become what they can be.

Re: Which OVER/UNDER?????

Before you purchase a new O/U for $500, trying looking for something in the used category. You'd be surprised at what's out there sometimes. The first O/U I purchased for myself was 18 years ago and I opted to buy a used one. It was a nice, clean Beretta and it was a great deal. Since then, I've added a few more O/U's to my safe but only one has been "new.". I would recommend to anyone looking for an O/U to first try looking in the used-gun category and look at models like the Win. 101, Charles Daly Miroku's, Franchi's, Beretta's and Browning Citori's and see if anything strikes your fancy. Some of those old guns from the 60's through 80's are around and in great shape because they ARE very well-made guns.

Many do have fixed-choke configurations but that shouldn't be a deterrant as some are realistic for hunting today provided you aren't using them for waterfowl and intend to shoot steel out of them. And contrary to what the choke designation is marked on the barrel, pattern it to determine such. You might be surprised at what you get.

I had the same problem. He posted the same question in the general firearms thread as well. Deja vu all over again. I was wondering where my reply had gone until I checked here.
