Well Iím looking for a ou shotgun. Unfortunately donít know squat about them I once shot a browning citori once. I saw a cz woodchuck g2 in 12 gauge I found a place that had 3 of them. Just donít know anything about them. I was going to use it for chukars, quail and pheasant. May just get a stoeger m3000. Not even sure if u can get a good one for 700.00 most of the ones I see are 1500.00.

I shoot my stoeger condor 20g quite a bit and haven't had any issues with it.  I'm sure it's a cheaply made piece of junk to some but it has never failed me, it kills birds and I bought it for well under 700. 

I bought it right after I passed up a Red Label that was twice the price but much prettier.

There is a difference between a shotgun that is used only for hunting, and one that needs to handle the demands of thousands of rounds of trap and skeet, as well as hunting.  I might shoot around 300 shells a year.  There are many, many options that will handle that type of use.

Citoris are miroku, some early Charles daly also.  SKB was marketed by Ithaca for some time. Sabatti might be a Remington or Charles daly.  The new SKB is Turkish and pricey, look for the Japan made ones.  Good searching and hunting

I have a solid japanese SKB O/U that I bought because the Ruger plant for red labels was striking.  1995ish?  That thing has been a tank, and I have seen some Red Labels having QC issues over the same time frame.  So, another vote for looking at SKB, and just go over the gun carefully for fit/finish, damage, and action.

CZ teal foes on sale for $549 a lot. Full set of chokes and hard case. Usually $799

It sounds like it's time to get a new gun.
