« on: August 20, 2019, 04:20:10 PM »

Sorry, but CZís are Turkish garbage.  Get a used Miroku based gun for the same price. Mirokuís are 10x the quality of a CZ.  What guage and barrel length do you want?

1) Jet Jockey is 150% correct
2) Barrel length is a personal thing.  In general shorter barrel swing fast.
3) What is your intended use?  Just birds a few times a year or shooting Sporting, skeet or trap.  All require different guns

I shoot competitive trap all over the place, and practice 2-3 times a week totaling about 15k rounds of 12ga a year.

All my friends are shotgunners, and a real shotgun is truly a very personal thing.  Fit is really the only thing that matters.   Once you mount one that is right, you will know.  It is like looking for a girl friend.  You will handle some turds until you find the right one.

 As Jockey stated stay FAR away from and Turkish gun...it will not hold up, and there is zero resale..zero.  I own several Miroku built Browning. 

The 828 is not getting good press as it is too light for heavy shooting volume and the safety is automatic everytime the gun closes. 

Honestly and Beretta or Browning is a working mans o/u and don't cost much more than the Turkish garbage.

https://www.joeletchenguns.com/new-guns/browning/citori-cx

This gun listing is way high.  There are used one on gunbroker for 1100ish

  My Teenager kid used to shoot this gun for 4H.  They were required to shoot trap, sporting and skeet. He also hunted upland with it.  He put 12000 down it in the course of 3 years, zero issues.  Only reason we got rid of it is upgraded and we used it as a trade in.  I believe it was $1299.99 at Cabelas during the summer of 2015. 

Neat thing about these is they shoot 60/40 and are 3" chambered.  They come with several chokes for different uses

Once you get to the Browning/Beretta/Benneli point it really is about fit. Look up http://www.fieldsportltd.com this guy offers a fit program in person but also has tips on how a gun should fit. It made me realize that the Browning o/u fit better than the beretta or benelli. However the benelli semi auto fit better than other brands. Donít get caught up on brand loyalty but what fits best.

As a side note I have a family member who could buy any shotgun in the world but he hunts with the Franci instinct for the last 15 years and loves it.

On barrels. For hunting I like 28Ē for clays I like 30Ē. If I had to choose one for all applications I would go 28Ē for the times you are hunting trees or cattails.

I've hunted a Ruger red label, first a 20 gauge that the thieves needed worse than me, then a 12 ga. I've had fair luck, shot a bunch, missed a bunch.

I've got one of them there garbage CZ drakes in a little girls guage. The ol .410. Have to say its one of my favorites. I love rocking big ol roosters and quail. I've had many trips that I've outshot everyone I was with. And others hunting the same general area. And the look on the elitist face when I head out with just the .410 and some shells, no dog is priceless when I show back up to the rig with my birds. It fits me well. Shoots well. And never malfunctions on me. But that's a piece of trash.  :chuckle: just having fun with you boys. But I do love my gun. Lots of options out there. Research a lot till you find whats right for you with your budget. But don't settle.
My prey is my biggest enemy. That's why my first shot is lethal.

Hunted with a browning citori 20ga for 10 years.  Then switched to a ruger red label 20ga.  I liked the ruger 20ga so much that I ended up buying a 28ga.  I love the 20 and the 28 both but i'd say the spilt is 60/40 on the 28 usage over the 20.

Cabelaís has a special run of the Winchester m101 for sale that sits around $1100. It is made in Belgium by FN. It is a good buy.

https://www.cabelas.com/product/WINCHESTER-OVER-UNDER-SHOTGUN-M-ULTIMATE/2896371.uts

For what they are CZ makes good guns but they can be on the heavy side. If you intend to pound clays day after day you should go to a higher grade gun however. For hunting they are great.

The new Weatherby Orions are made in Turkey; the SKB name is still alive (guns now made in Turkey), but the SKB plant in Japan is no more.

A used Weatherby or Ithaca SKB is a great gun and the new Turkish made Orion is still a nice gun, too. Sportsman's Warehouse had them on sale recently at a nice price.

to be fair, not all Turkish shotguns are garbage.  Akus is doing a great job on the sxs. Their new estate OU is very well made.
