New, to me, 20 gauge SxS!

Elk creekElk creek Senior MemberPosts: 5,813 Senior Member
I was minding my own business at my LGS yesterday and spotted a CZ Bobwhite 20 gauge. I fell in love. I had them hold it for me until today. We did some horse trading and it came home. So for a Ruger 357 sp101 and some store credit I had I have a new, to me, sweetheart of a 20 guage. These shotguns are beautiful. The case colors on this gun is awesome, pics hardly do it justice. Straight stock and 26" tubes, screw in chokes and double triggers I love it.

    Beautiful little double barrel! That thing should be a lot of fun shooting doves, and quail if you can find them! Have fun!

    Love it! My best dove gun is my Uncle's LC Smith 20 SxS ... but it is a little older than that and way uglier. 20's to me seem to float easier and a feels a little more part of me.

    I'm not a shotgunner ............but this is one of the best handling and most consistent bird guns I've ever fired. I've no problem getting a limit as long as the birds are in range.

    My other shotgun I use is an old late 70's Vintage Wingmaster. I love the way this one feels. Can't wait to shoot it.

    Nice gun! I hear good evaluations of this gun! I have two 20 ga. SXS and love them.

    I like case colors and a SxS I don't have one in the stable.
    The colors on yours are great

    Came close once but he wouldn't sell it.

    Very sweet find. The finish looks to be very much in great shape.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.
  • snake284snake284 Senior Member Posts: 22,036 Senior Member
    I don't have a SXS but I do have an O/U 12 gauge Citori. But for doves I prefer my Mossberg 500 20 ga. I haven't hunted with my hump back Browning Sweet 16 yet so the jury is still out on which is my fav.

  • ojrojr Senior Member Posts: 902 Senior Member
    I really like the look of that gun.
    Closest I've ever had was a Spanish 12g SXS, not a patch on your one though, no way.

  • shushshush Senior Member Posts: 6,259 Senior Member
    Straight stock and double triggers. :applause:

    That is very nice.

    Francis E. Sell would be proud.

    What weight is that?

    It's in great shape, there is just one "hunting oops" on the stock by the comb, it's not bad though.

    If they look right, they often seem to be.
