When dealing with batter---it all comes out in the mix.

The short answer is none------save your money up for something better.

I can't agree with Omaha.
I do know that there are significant differences, but it depends on the model, grade, and importer.
I have Huglu trap grade, bought through DeHaan, that has turned out to be a real prize.
The wood and bluing are very good (note: not excellent), the barrels are true to each other, the engraving is fine (not extra fine) and the mechanical reliability has been tops.
I can't tell you how the back up service is; I haven't needed any.
I believe that CZ is importing the lower grade guns. The wood and bluing is not as nice, but these are field grade guns. Not pretty, but they work.
and CZ does have good customer service if you need it.
They are a fair value in terms of how much for what you get.
Are there better? Of course, but they cost more.
If I were looking at field grade guns, I would look at the Lanber over unders, in Sporting Clays configuration. I think they are better and sell for only very little more than the Turkish guns.
In trap grade, I have no hesitency to recommend the Huglu.
