CZ s/s and o/u shotguns


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


CZ offers a nice lineup of double barrel shotguns..............anyone have one or handled them ? Are they well made, tight breaks, etc. ?

Regards, Vic

I've handled the Bobwhite and Ringneck, both solid guns.
The guns are produced in Turkey, and are made at the Huglu plant.
I am currently trying to wrangle a 28" ringneck in a deal, if the guy would ever open my email.....

As far as O/U's go, I own a Charles Daly model 106 20 ga. that is another Turkish gun. It is well made, and after owning it for two years now, and about 5000 shots thru it, it is functioning fine.
I'd buy another.

16 gauge CZ Ringneck

I bought this one as unfired off the used gun rack. Very nice gun, but new ones appear to be overpriced. All the best...

Vic,
The fit and finish on the CZ shotguns are really good for the price. I have heard of a couple of trigger problems with some of the SXS's...like them going off by themselves when the safety is taken off. That was from production a couple of years ago, however.
If you are looking for a SXS, I would suggest looking at Ugartechea's... They are imported by Lion Country Supply, nowadays. They are the oldest Basque gunmakers in Spain, and do great work for the $$$. You can often find used ones in great shape in the $600-$750 price range. I have a 28ga. of theirs that goes around 4lbs. 9oz which is just a phenomenal of grouse, woodcock, and pheasants.

Good Luck,

Jim

I have a CZ BobWhite 20, and love it. I bought it new for $650. I think it's one of the best bargains out there. It fits me to a tee, which is what it's all about. Have you tried mounting any of the guns you're looking at? The straight stock and balance of the BobWhite are perfect for me, but won't fit everyone.
I too have read some negative comments about CZ shotguns on the forums, but always take that stuff with a grain of salt. There are just as many guys that love them. CZ has a fantastic warranty if you do have trouble. Buy what makes YOU happy.

Thanks for the feedback. I've not personally seen or handled any CZ shotguns here in the Midwest.....yet. I'm looking for a light 20 ga for grouse hunting.

Regards, Vic

Vic, I recently picked up a new CZ Canvasback O/U in 20Ga. with a 26" barrel. The fit and finish are probably the best/dollar I've ever encountered. It throws very nice patterns with Winchester Hi Brass field loads in 5's and 7 1/2's, (the only ones I've checked so far), and the pattern is to the aiming point for both barrels. Two weekends ago, I ran it over to my buddies farm, and burned two boxes of skeet loads at clay pigeons that seemed to poof to plan, when I was paying attention. And, that was enough to get the moving parts broken in.

I didn't really need a .20Ga shotgun, but it was so nice I couldn't put it back on the rack, and I could never afford a Browning or Baretta. The only problem I had was the decision between O/U or S/S. Cost $699.

Thanks Tman......the 20 w/26" barrels is likely the way I'll go - regardless of the model.

Thanks again.....

Vic
