Over/under shotgun

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone out there has any recommendations of over/under shotguns? I want to keep the price under $700 if possible, and just want to know if there are brands I should stay away from with regards to mechanics. Thanks for any input.

Check out the mossberg silver reserve. I've got 3 buddies with them and they are all pleased with it (2 12 gauge & 1 20 gauge). I believe it should be around $450-$500.

I haven't tried the Mossberg, so can't comment on it. But I will say this from experience... you get what you pay for. I went a cheap route years ago. I wish I had saved a bit more and gotten a better quality one. I know some are quite spendy, but my buddies with the "quality" brands are still using theirs, I am not still using mine. Good luck.

edit: sorry, my brand is American Arms.

I just baught a Rempington SPR 310 and it has been great so far. Auto ejectors are a must though IMO.

Traditions makes a nice field grade o/u that is close to that range. I use one and love it.

Do yourself a favor you'll never regret. Spend the winter searching for a used Browning Superposed. To get down into your price range it will have to be one that is less than perfect, but as long as it functions it won't matter. You'll be shooting it fifty years from now. grin.gif

I picked up a CZ Canvasback this summer. I only have about 4 boxes of shells through it, but no problems. Fit and finish seems much better then the Mossberg. It fits me good and I shoot well with it.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
