View Full Version : O/U Shotgun?

So I want a new shotgun, primarily for shooting trap, and skeet. I have a pump action that is perfect for trap, but a little slow for skeet so I think I want an over/under shotgun.

I've looked for an o/u youth model, but can't seem to find one!

I currently use a Remington 870 20 ga. youth model, which I also got the stock shortened on.

I was wondering what suggestions you guys have, or what you use to play trap and skeet with.

Hi Angie There is a nice Browning Micro Lightning on Guns America. Do a search on the site for #024224

Please don't shop at Big five for a O/U ..if thats what you can afford..buy a Semi Auto...1100, 11-87 or so on....good is not cheap and cheap is not good

Angie,

I have 3 OU's I have a Boito I take on Jeep trips during bird season, it aims well but is no frills. I have a Beretta with their short lived speed trigger, Beretta makes a fine over under. That said my third gun is a Browning Citori feather light. I absolutely love that gun. I always do better when I shoot that thing. My recommendation will always be the Citori.

Real Purdy too

Hey Angie - check out CZ's Redhead O/U, a friend of mine about the same build as me has one and had it custom fitted - which makes a huuuuge difference!

It's easily the equal of other O/Us twice it's price. (and you get to have your very own redhead! ;) .

I have a 26" Ruger Red Label O/U.

Such a gun balances nicely - I don't shoot that well with it because the comb angle/natural positioning is a bit different than my Beretta 390 and Benelli Nova and Just have to acclimatize it or have a smith tweak "the line" of it (comb angle).

If you decide to get an auto loader and end up with a Beretta 391. I have a 20g youth stock that I installed on my 12g. So, I known it will fit both a 20g and a 12g. I don't have a need for it in the forseeable future so, I might be willing to sell it. Of course, you'ld be better off buying a Perrazi and having the stock cut to fit you.

I bought my wife an 1100 Sporting model in 20ga for her first shotgun, and she likes to shot it since it has a little shorter stock and the recoil is very manageable - however she was pretty much insistent that she get an O/U like mine since they are just much sexier than the autos. I bought her an F.A.I.R. Rizzini imported by Verona - the lx680 model - I have one as well (both in 20ga).
The Verona company is out of business but they are being imported now by Kalispel I believe (for a higher cost). You can still find them on Gunsamerica or GB from time to time, and still a bargain compared to Beretta or other comparable guns.

FIT is key - get the stock cut to fit you and you'll shoot much better.

If you are near the SGV area, East of Pasadena, try a place called Pacific Sporting Arms in Azusa. http://www.pacificsportingarms.com/ is the website. They specialize in Shotguns. They will find you something that will fit you like a glove. I bought my Beretta O/U there. The model I ended up buying was not even known to me until the shop owner recommended it.
Good luck.
