Question Over Under 20ga for under 750 if there is such a thing

I've been shooting pump action and semi-auto shotguns my whole life. I am interested in learning about over under shotguns. Mainly for dove hunting.

What would y'all recommend? Affordable and something I can get dirty.

Thanks

Look at a Yildiz at Academy. $430 and cheaper when on sale. Nice little over & under

Your best bet may be to find a gently used Beretta BL1. Also, a used SKB can sometimes be found in your price range. I handled one in a used gun store some 20 years ago that I still regret not buying to this day. The gun just fit.

Cabelas has the CZ Teal on the Father's Day sale right now. Would probably be just the ticket in that price range. May be able to find a Franchi Instinct L used

I have a franchi made by beretta, it was around 800.00 I believe ,on sale at Cabelas. I really really want a joeletchinson (sp) beretta. I have been wearing my lap top out looking at them lately. But they are lot more $. I do really like the franchi, seems real solid, shoots great. ( it does, I don't though)

Just keep saving, do it right one time and maybe buy you a new or used citori. I personally shoot for dove a browning citori white lightning feather weight. It's been a smasher for five. My dad gave it to me when I retired my auto5 to save for my son when hes old enough to shoot a full size shotgun

CZ Teal, Yildiz, and the Stoeger are all good shotguns for the money, and you can get them dirty as you mentioned.

CZ
Been comparing for a while now and I am liking the CZ over the Stoeger and have seen too many Yildiz actually blown up. I bought a CZ Redhead Premier 20ga OU for my wife in a 26" barrel and it is really a very nice shotgun and a great shooter.

onyx pro is what Iím looking at. I donít know any details as far as shipping and tax though.

OP, I think any of the ones listed here will suit your needs! All great options for under $1K

I bought an older Franchi OU 20 on here a few years back and thought I would shoot it more. I grew up shooting old humpback Brownings, and it is just hard for me to shoot anything else. I get frustrated after 5 or 6 misses and go back to my old gun. Long way to say I have one I'll sell if interested. I'll sell for what I have in it...I think 550...It just sets in the safe.

Buy a yildiz, or even the Stevens 555. You'll get your money's worth out of it. I have a 28ga. Yildiz and a 20ga. Stevens. I've spent roughly 10◊ the cost of either shotgun on shells for each and they both still run without a single issue. I really like the 28ga. It's not as pretty as the Stevens but it's light and i can't seen to miss with it.

This. I shoot a CZ wingshooter in 20 for dove and quail. Same gun as the Teal just fancier. Great Gun for the money. My brother bought a Teal last year and loves it.

Mossberg Silver Reserve Combo, is what I was looking into. It is a 12 ga and 20 ga both options with the package to switch when you want to.

Yea I just looked at cabelas to see what the franchi L are now, and dang they have gone up quit a bit in a couple of years. If I get the beretta I want, I may have a very little used ( like three boxes of shells at the most) franchi L for sale.
