410 ou or ss

Looking for a 410 shotgun either ou or ss for up to $500. Any suggestions. I know there is the Moss 500 pump for around $300-400 but wondering about over/under or side by side

410 shotguns are pretty much at the two extremes, pricewise. OU or SS shotguns also tend to be more expensive than a pump or a single-shot. But check these out:

Check out the CZ shotguns. Very nice shotguns, seriously pretty. They run a little bit more than $600, but they are very nice. The Redhead MSRP is $965, but I have seen them for about $750. The Woodcock is a bit more.

If price is the biggest issue, Stoeger makes the Condor in .410 for about $400 in A Grade (walnut stock, ejectors, etc), same price for a youth model. I have only handled them, but they seem to be pretty good for the price.

.410

I have a Stoeger Coach Gun .410 SXS 20" bbls. It is a neat and handy little gun. It is made on a heavier frame than a true ".410 sized" gun. Compared to the CZ, it has a bulkier receiver. It is heavy for it's size at 6 and 1/4 lbs. It is also about half the price of the CZ which is a more elegant gun. It has a very short, for me , LOP; I had to add an inch for it to fit.
All in all, I like it.
Pete

guess I will beat the Spartan Gunworks drum again. The SPR310 is a real nice looking shotgun available in all gauges and has remington behind the Russian Baikal company. I have 12 and 410 models and they work fantastic. http://www.remington.com/products/fi...er_&_under.asp
Walmart carries remington and can order them in for much less than most sporting goods stores.

The typical .410 sized gun is just too light for my liking -- they don't swing very smoothly. If you're of a like mind and already have a good SxS or O/U gun, have you considered some .410 bore tubes?

My wife has the .410 stoeger coach gun s/s. It is heavy for its size, but we both really like it. Very nice gun for the money. It is choked I.C. and Mod. I was a little worried about the wide chokes in a .410 but I know most of them are full, and kids starting out hunting end up not hitting anything in the air, and blame it on the gauge. When she first got it I tried some clays with it, and that made me very happy we got it choked the way we did. She gets alot of grouse in the air with it, and shooting clays it has surprized a few people on how well it done. No doubt it is not made for that. Like I said for what you are paying it is a good shotgun. I myself like the Browning o/u but your looking at a few more dollars.
