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.

Mike

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
