Are these guns any good? Thinking of getting a 20 for grouse and ducks.

I have a buddy that has one and loves it. I also know someone looking to sell one. Not to sure on the specifics but I know it has nice looking wood and engraving and comes with 2 sets of barrels 20 ga and 12 ga I know he likes the gun but got a browning o/u that he could not pass up. Let me know and I can get you ahold of the guy.

I had looked at the Silver Reserve at Gander Mountain a few months ago and liked the looks. I googled the gun and found some reviews not to my liking. Many of the reports were consistent in saying that the inside of the chamber tends to start rusting very soon, even with cleaning. There were also people who like the gun. I decided to go with a used Browning Citori to be safe.

I am a big fan. I picked one up as an entry level O/U and cant say anything bad about it. At $550.00 I can beat the tar out of it and it wont bother me too much. In fact the first thing I did when I got it home was scratch it with a key just to get it out of the way. I hunt thick cover for grouse and it was going to happen some day.

With a high end gun like a browning or some of the Italian o/u'ers I think I would spend more time on the trail to keep from scratching it.

But they are what they are. A good, well made, entry level gun. I dont regret getting mine, and have had a good expetience so far. I would like to find some after market choke tubes, but that is my only gripe.

My only recommendation would be to shoulder it, let it down shoulder it and if it fits ya and you like it go for it. I had a benelli pump, but bought it on name alone, when I realized I couldn't shoulder it, without it getting caught up under my armpit or caught in my jackets, I gave it to a friend with longer arms. My remingtons have a shorter stock than the benelli and fit me better, especially once you add a few layers of clothing.

i love mine and i to read reviews on the gun but once i went to scheels and they had a brand new one and a "used"one that someone had won and traded it in so it was 200 off the regular price so i got it the only thing i would tell you is if you buy it shoot it with all chokes as mine varies greatly between shooting lead and steel but once i figured it out it was deadly on pheasants

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
