When I really want to knock birds down I just can't miss with my benelli montefeltro. It' was made back when heckler and kotch partnered with benelli.

When I'm just working dogs on quail and not trying so hard to kill birds I like my Stoager Uplander sxs. It's got a 20g and a 28g interchangable barrel. I like the 20g.

My wife's Remington 20 gauge 11-87 Sportsman with mossy oak camo and a 26" barrel for quail. I have more expensive shotguns but I just love how that 11-87 fits me. I have an old 12 gauge Ithaca that is getting handed down to me that I love.

Where did he get the sweet 16? I've been trying to find one for sell anywhere, and haven't seen one yet.

But I am really wanting the new Browning A5 16 GA...a hunting buddy of mine got one and I got the chance to take a look a it last week...really nice balance, under 6 lbs...time to start saving! Or I could sell one of the other shotguns roflmao

I use either my O/U Ruger Red Label 20 gauge, or my 12 gauge Browning 725 Citori Sporting with the palm swelling and ported barrels. Those were my babies when I use to shoot in shooting competitions back in the day. I ordered a dozen different Briley chokes for each from skeet chockes all the way up to Improved mods and diffusers. I only use them hunting doves...I have never hunted quail or pheasant, but I would much like to.

Beretta 390 20ga. light, no recoil and fits like a dream. This was given to me by a good friend and customer a few years ago.

Well, this will be my first Quail hunt, but I am going to use my Stevens 555 in 20. I shot better with it than I have ever with any other gun....

But the fit and finish of a Belgium made Browning is second to none. They have their own beauty.

A5s draw both lovers and haters. Dad had one back in the day and loved it. I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it, and it felt clunky as heck to me. He had another in 12 gauge magnum - and it was a great turkey gun. The Belgian ones are definitely very well made.

I have a Belgian sweet 16, and a Jap light 20. I think both guns are of equal quality. I inherited the sweet 16 and bought the 20 in the 90's for $300 when Walmart quit carying Browning and clearanced them in Midland.

From what I understand the new Sweet 16's are made in Portugal
The new A-5's are built different from the old ones or they at least they feel different to me, I like the new ones

If you like the 28 gauge, take a look at the Rizzini models. I handled them at the DSC show and liked them greatly. I'm also a big fan of the 16 ga s/s, but don't currently own one, but maybe I'll fix that later this year. I also own and like my "Ugartechea SXS. English stock double triggers". It's a great handling gun.

The wife bought me a Browning 725 Citori in 20 gauge for Christmas. If work will ever let me have a weekend I think I'll try it on the quail birds. My Beretta Silver Pigeon just didn't fit that well and the 28 was heavier than my Red Label 28. More to follow
