Been looking at the CZ lineup for some occasional sporting clays or upland game. Anyone out there have any input on the Canvasback, Redhead, Woodcock lineup.

Don't want to remortgage the house but want a good over and under. I found a great price on a new Canvasback for $589 but admittedly, shotguns are not my area of comfort. It does not have a barrel selector or ejectors, only extractors. Handicap or not?

Good buy on a decent gun?

Thanks.

I have a used one on layaway at Gander Mtn. Hoping to pick it up this weekend sometime. I know many folks on here dislike the "Turkey" produced shotguns, but what I've researched if your going to buy one there's only 2-3 out there that's worth buying and CZ is one of them. I have a fair number of shotguns, Browning included, so I won't be using this gun soley and putting a lot of wear and tear on it. I have a friend that owns a CZ side-by-side and he loves it.
So, I'm hoping for the best, hope all works out.
I will post an update on it once I get a chance to get it out and use it.

Good Luck!

Well after all the snow has finally melted I was able to get out and shoot my CZ Canvasback two weeks ago.

I only put about a 75 round through it, but was real please with the way it performed. I had no problems with the single select trigger system/safety/firing pins, at least not yet, only time will tell. The gun swings real nice and fast, it has a 26-inch barrel. The break action is nice and smoothe, too.
The only negative thing I would say, and it's only minimal, is the safety. I wish it was a little smoother, but maybe in time that'll operate smoother with a few more hundred rounds through it.

congrats on the new gun. I saw the CZ Canvasback for sale in the CDNN catalog for great prices. Anybody needing or looking for certain firearms should check this place out.

I assume by your handle you own an AR-15 made by dpms.

Why didn't you buy a WASR-10 instead?

You assumed correctly. Nothing like a modern, reliable, classic black rifle in the safe.

i didn't know that CZ's shotguns were made in TURKEY, i know that the turks make quality edged weapons but never heard any good/bad on shotguns. CZ rifles are of high quality and i'm seriously considering purchasing a CZ mannlicher in 6.5X55

As far as Turk guns go, CZ would be the only one I would consider buying. But, you get what you pay for. If you save up a few extra bucks, you could realistically find a good, used, Browning, Beretta or Ruger.

I was looking at a CZ woodcock O/U at a Ruffed grouse society banquet one time and really liked the feel of it.I thought about buying one but the research that I did came up a little too shaky to spend the 900 bucks on one.
