CZ/USA 20 Guage Shotgun

6 posts in this topic

Was looking at a 20 guage CZ Greenhead shotgun, seems to be a well made gun, light and has a great feel to it. Was wondering if anyone has one or any more info on them. Feels much like the Ruger at half the price.

Great little gun and well made. Local, reputable gunsmith examined this gun very closely and highly recommends and owns this gun. Can't go wrong

Bpoli2,

Thanks for the reply. I see Cabela's has them on sale, might have to take a run down.

Did you end up getting one? I am looking at buying a Canvasback 20 gauge. I can not find one locally to get my hands on, but can find some pretty good deals online.

Kjgmh,

I ended up with the CZ Greenhead 20ga. Cabela's had it on sale for 600.00. I would have liked a Ruger Red label, but this one feels just like it for half the price. Shot four boxes of shells through it, I'm happy with it. Outdoor Life did an article on them and said a great gun for the money.

Well heres the deal..... I hate to rain on your parade but I just returned my CZ Redhaead Dlx because the bottom ejector went TU it had been sent in and "fixed" once after less then 100 rds and went TU again after maybe a 100rds I guess we'll see what comes of it but if you do any research on the net you will find CZ-Huglu qc is very spotty. And as far as I can make sense the "Greenhead" is a speical build of the "Redhead" made just for Cabelas. Bottom line is and I hate to admit it but you get what you pay for......I have two Browning O/U's and there is a differnce.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
