    Best buy on a good over/under?

    Hi guy's,
    Had a friend come to me with a question I wasn't sure about, but told him I knew some people that could help.
    He wanted a few options on a good over/under.
    I don't think he has thousands to spend so looking for a few good choices that are good buys. Thanks

    A standard field grade Browning Citori would be a fine upland bird gun. It will hold its value and not cost an arm and a leg to purchase. I'm sure there are other less expensive O/U's out there but remember, you get what you pay for. I own 2 Citori's and absolutely love them. They have increased in value twofold since I bought them in the '80s.

    Look at the Ruger Red Labels. I wish I could justify buying one.

    Now we're talking... I love to discuss bird guns. One thing to remember is that doubles, be it sxs or o/u cost more than a pump or auto. Even a lower end one will cost right around a grand.
    The Browning's are really good guns (OK, awesome), but will cost some. CZ has a really nice line of O/U made by Huglo (pronounced Hoo-Lou)in Turkey. Some will say that the Turk guns are junk, but it seems as if the ones put out by CZ are actually pretty nice. CZ has a hell of a reputation to keep up, so I doubt they would put their name on junk. I just bought a 20ga auto from them, and while its no Beretta, I like the gun for the purpose intended.
    Anyway, their line runs from about 7-800 on up and is of good quality.

    My second choice in the "right around a grand" range would be a Red Label. I have one of those as well, and its been a good gun. Its a little heavy for an upland gun... but its a Ruger, and nobody says tanks are supposed to be light.

    That's a good line up for him to start with.
    SIXTO gunbroker had a CZ for over 2k and a few for 1k.
    It looks like he could get a Ruger or Browning within 1000 to 1500.
    Those Brownings look nice.

    I had a CZ Ringneck SxS for 2-3 years and loved the gun. Very well made, and all of my shooting buddies were great with it... just not me. I tried for three dove seasons to make it work for me and ended up trading it last October for a Beretta Storm Carbine. I'll have to go back to my old Beretta AL2 for dove season...wait, it IS dove season.... FOUR DAY HUNT IN WEST TEXAS NEXT WEEK

    Quality for price is definately there in the CZ line, and they do make a great looking O/U as well as the SxS... can be had for under the $1k price range.

    The Browning Citori is definately a great gun, as well as the Ruger, but may be budget busters for some folks.

    One of my O/Us is a CZ Mallard........great gun, double triggers, extractors instead of ejectors (more expensive guns will have ejectors & single selectable trigger).

    This is a gun I use often & it's not too expensive to worry about dinging it in the field....

    Can be had for around $500-$600....
    CZ-USA -> MALLARD 104 A


    Ruger Red Labels can be had for around $1000-$1500.
    Brownings $1200+
    Berettas $1700+
    ....etc....

    Ok, I am by no means an expert of field type shotguns. I like them, and have shot a few of them, but thats about as far as I go. That being said last time I was home on leave I took out my Mossberg Silver Reserve O/U, and my friend took out his Stoeger Condor. The Mossy felt a lot better, and swung a lot better, and we both broke more clays with it.

    Im sure there are a lot of guns that are better and prettier, but for occasional use and not too much cash, that one works for me.

    The Mallard's MSRP is $562.

    The Redhead is $1000.

    The Canvasback is $819.

    They go up from there. If it were me looking for an entry level O/U, I'd buy the Canvasback.

    Just one warning about the Stoeger....The barrel metal is VERY SOFT. When I was looking at them at Gander Mountain I found several of them had dents in the barrel. They gotten them just by being handled by customers in the store!

    The Mossberg Silver Reserve are a little better & you can get them with another set of barrels for the next gauge....(12ga & 20.....or 20ga & .410). They aren't as well made as the CZs but seem to be a good value.

    The browning will never disappoint....they are first rate. I would probably listen to sixto...he seems to be very passionate about his bird guns.

    I have a stoeger SxS and it has been fun, I do not shoot competitively or anything, just want my shotguns to throw shot reasonably well and it does. I have my eye on the O/U and the coach gun. I got mine a few years ago for 250 at Dicks Sporting goods. Found a hi vis sight and recoil pad on clearance at wlamart and got those addidtions for 10 bucks total. I have friends who take their skeet and birds very serious and they shoot some awesome benelli's and berretta's but for me I'd spend that money on a nice AR a couple 1911's or any 6 other handguns.

    Only recommendation I have is for SD get the auto shell extractors... for clays and such I don't mind pulling shells, easier to colect that way!
