New CZ I think

http://www.cz-usa.com/products/view/rengneck-target/

Quote:
The Ringneck Target, finally an affordable side by side designed with clay shooting in mind. This guns is mechanically identical to the standard Ringneck but carries 30 inch barrels and a full size target stock grip rather than the Prince of Whales grip. This gun is perfect for those upland hunters that like a longer sight plane, but it is a superb choice for the side by side events that are becoming more and more popular at medium to large sporting clays events all across the country.

gauge: 12 stock/finish: Turkish walnut/case hardened receiver/polished barrels, chokes: F, IM, M, IC, C
Looks like a nice piece I would love to get my hands on. Used a Browning BSS and was rather fond of it.

Think I would not mind 28" barrels but SXS are rather light in the first place.

Anywhere from $960 to $1076 street price.

I have a CZ O/U on the way in 20 Ga. I am excited about trying one of them out. It really appears to be a well made gun, and I hope to get it next week.

The Prince of Wales (the one who became King Edward VII) reportedly came up with the modified pistol grip shotgun.

He also reportedly ate 5 full meals a day, many of them with 10 courses. He had a 48-inch waist too. So what the heck, maybe it should be Prince of Whales.

Got my new CZ O/U yesterday...it truly is a beautiful gun! It looks to be well made...can't wait to get out and see how it performs. I see some trap shooting coming up in the near future .

Make sure you give those trigger a good workout before any competition - that has always been one of CZ (Huglu's) weak areas - that and barrel regulation. if you got a good one, great - should serve you well for a while

Thanks for the heads up...I am just now really getting in to trap shooting, so I am still learning. I will try to make sure it is up to par before I do any siginificant shooting that really counts with it...
