I took my wife out to shoot once several years ago and let her shoot it, thinking that a 20 would be better for her. I sold my Skeet barrel for my Remington to make up the difference in my budget and put down the deposit this afternoon. I am drifting towards finding a lightly used Ruger Redlabel with one-three thousand rounds down the barrels. He has about every other normal gun you can think of, but he won't buy himself a over under because of the price tag. Full, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Skeet. I had a stoeger and didn't like it, the shells wouldn't always extract. Yep, those CZs are nice.
Further, two recoil lugs milled into the base of the monobloc dovetail into milled-out areas in the bottom of the receiver upon closing, resulting in a very strong lockup. Both the and gauge guns come in either or inch barrels, and five flush-mounted screw-in chokes are included — all at a suggested retail of less than a grand! While I delight in double-guns in the sub gauges, there's something about shooting a 28 in a semiauto that makes me feel like I'm getting away with eating three courses of dessert for dinner. For more than 60 years, Ruger has been a model of corporate and community responsibility. The Redhead, by contrast, is a winner by every measure. Randy is very sharp but he's also human and once he's decided he doesn't care for a gun or related product he becomes very biased It has everything I want in a dedicated competition gun and nothing that I don't.
As for the U, he's made his mind up on it that it's overpriced and will loosen your teeth if you shoot it a lot. But don't buy one unless you can deal with trouble. Only complaint I have is the gun came bone dry, so I had to lubricate it well. I worked the action open or so times just sitting and watching TV and it loosened up a little and handles really well. That being said, for the money I'd still recommend a Yildez. I've seen one "double" once. I will look around and see what I can come up with.
Not the most expensive not the prettiest and as said not the best quality but i can take it afield and no worry. Not much to go wrong on an overunder as opposed to a semi auto. Further, the CZ Sharp-Tail is offered in 12, 20, 28 and. I went with the Browning Citori Field model instead, but it was a hard choice to make. Like whats been said already go by Carters country if you can, shoulder and feel as many as you can, then make your decision.
