Default O/U Recommendations

Wife offered to get me an O/U for Christmas. Greenscreen recommendations on anything less than $1k?

CZ makes some good sub-1K O/Us.

If you dont mind used, you can sometimes find Beretta 686-variety O/Us for around a grand.

I second the CZ. My clays gun is a Blaser F3 but my go to bird gun is a CZ wingshooter Elite in 20ga. I have seen some CZ's at Cabelas in the 6-700 range.

I have loved my new Yildiz 20 ga. O/U. I bought the "special addition" that gave me the nicer ingravings and picked out a wood grain that was much different than all of the rest.

All warranty repairs are done by Briley which sealed the deal.

I think it was around $700.00 or so.

If you can find them on sale and running rebates you can pick up some nice browning field models...I bought a browning citori white lightning last year for not much over 1k plus a "free" yeti roadie during the local shops pre dove season sale , maybe you can remind her how good you've been and see if she will increase the allowance just a tad

I sold an immaculate Citori White Lightning 12 earlier in the year for right at $1000.

Lot's of options used for under $1000, and that's what I would look for. Beretta, Browning, Ruger all good ones

I had a CZ Woodcock O/U that was a nice gun. It was Turkish, proving to me that not all Turkish Shotguns are bad.

I shoot in clay tournaments, dove hunt, woodcock hunt and now have pheasant hunted, all with that "Yildiz junk" and have found it to be a great gun. Been bird hunting since I was a kid.

Insert middle finger to the man on the high horse.

Dove hunting and clay shooting is all I would use it for.

Appreciate all the input!

Trap Shooters forum is a great place to start for used O/Us

Hah, Yildiz is an underrated manufacturer. They are probably the best new O/Us you can buy in the $500 range.

For realz

Theres a kid that practices with my son on a shooting team shooting a yildiz and extended chokes. That 'junk' could have taken Blaser money all night last week.

Kid is in his second year with the same gun. Once a week practice with 2+ boxes plus tournaments.

May be able to find a Winchester 101 for around that used. Depends on the model. It's probably the most underrated O/U out there in my opinion.

I have an early 70s model and wouldn't sell it for twice that.

I saw a 20g at the gun show for $1100 in March.

Lots of nice guns out there, including the CZ's. I would go for one of them or a Ruger Red Label.

Keep your eyes peeled for some deals on Gunbroker. I picked up a mint condition 1978 Citori 12ga 28" barrel for just over 600 bucks. Deals are out there. I've also heard good things about the CZ guns, but I've never shot one.

I'd get a used Red Label.Usually can be had for about $900.
If you were closer to Unique Guns in Waco,they'd hook you up.I know they ship.
