I just got a new job and a nice salary bump and wanted to celebrate with buying a 20 gauge o/u. My budget is anything below $1,500. Iím looking for something with a wood stock and am willing to buy something used in good condition. A couple of guns Iíve consider are a Browning Superposed or Winchester 101. Do any of you have suggestions on where to look or any other kinds of nice looking models? Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide!

With your budget you will have a lot of choices.

I'm a big fan of the 101 - have both a 12 and a 20. For the last couple of years, Cabelas/BPS has had them on sale during their late summer "Hunting Special" at about $1000.

Take a look at the Franchi Instinct L and Instinct SL. I picked up a 12ga L last year and it's been a nice little gun.

What fits you best? I'm a Browning Citori fan.

you should be able to find a Citori Lightning in 20ga used for under $1500. Maybe a White Lightning. heck with the rebate from Browning right now you can almost buy the 725 for that.

I have a Browning 725 Sporting 20ga and love it, The gun fits perfect. In your budget, I would look for a used Browning, Weatherby, SKB, Beretta,

you don't show where you live but go and handle as many as possible RE; Cabelas/bass pro. see which fits you the best as FIT is #1 when buying an O/U.

I had a Franchi Instinct L 28ga, SWEEEET gun but it didn't fit me, the comb was too high, I saw too much rib when looking down the barrel, this would make me shoot high. I didn't want to pay to have it "bent".

Congrats on your new job!!! Keep us posted and send pics when you decide.


what is your main use for the gun going to be?

You can go to Elm Fork, I "think" they rent O/U Beretta but maybe just the autoloaders.

I really like the 101 silver pigeon. I donít know how that translates across the line of 101s but thatís one slick gun built to last a lifetime.

Iím in the DFW area.

It seems that a lot of these recommedations for the new guns come in over my range. Any other suggestions for places to purchase used guns in good condition? I think Iíd prefer one that had silver colored engraved trim.

I really appreciate all of the suggestions so far!

A 101 is within your budget. A Superposed in really good condition isnít within your budget, at least from what Iíve seen in a long time.

The 101 if I remember correctly is made in Japan. They also have an identical shotgun they market under a different name that cost a little less. Around 80% of the 101 price.

I agree with the Franchi O/U . Franchi SGs' are very nice and competitive pricing . I have a Affinity 12-ga wood stock and I love it !

Maybe, I was going from memory and now trying to research the BS I was regurgitating.
