Mossberg Silver Reserve II O/U


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I am thinking about getting one. Anyone have one or experience they would like to share? I am really liking the 20 ga model. This would be a just nice to have gun that I may use for squirrels and maybe skeet for fun (no tournaments.)

When they were 400ish they were a pretty fair deal...now they're over 600, I think there's better options in that price range...

Would you care to mention some particular models that are better options in that price range?

I've seen them show up on the sporting clays ranges and they have some drawbacks. They have terrible triggers on them and they are prone to breakage under sustained use such as clay shooting. I'd spend the money you have on a good used Beretta 391 or 390 for about the same amount of money. There are NO decent O/U's in that price range....NONE. To get into a decent quality OU you're going to spend over a thousand and that's just a decent gun, nothing special. Sorry to say that but that's the way it is. Everything's getting very expensive. Especially guns.

Had a Silver Reserve .410 for about 4 or 5 years now that I rabbit hunt with. It has served me well and is a pleasure to carry but it only gets a box or so of shells fired thru it in a season. I don't think I would want one for volume shooting nor would I pay $400 or more for one. I'd look at the used rack if I were shopping for one.

I will try and look on the used racks but really I haven't seen many. I have done some reading the last couple of days and three models get at least decent reviews: Mossbery Silver Reserve II, Stoeger Condor Supreme, and the Savage Stevens Gold Wing. Since this is basically going to be a squirrel and putzing around gun that I shoot skeet with about once a year (maybe) I think I may go ahead and get one of the three. I just don't have over $1k to throw at it and I want one.

I've actually been able to at least look at and put my hands on a couple of these now. I found a couple of CZ models that I really like. I think if I get one the CZ model is what I am going to get. The Savage is probably next in the ones I have looked at. The Stoeger didn't look nice at all, didn't feel that great, and was so stiff you could barely get it open. The Winchester was ok but was a little over $1k so I am probably not going to consider it.

If you want an over/under, I would suggest the CZ. I have the Canvasback model (single trigger). It comes with five extra choke tubes, and I would choose it over the Mossburg. I paid around $575.00. Pretty good for a top line over/under.

The Canvasback is the model I looked at and it looked just fine. It looked to be a solid gun.

Huh. I did not know CZ made an over/under, that sounds very tempting. I have wanted an O/U for years...... and I love my cz425.

Thanks for the heads up guys!

The ones I saw looked very nice. I am pretty certain that is what I am going to get. They have several models and almost all of them are under $1k.
