Shotgun/rifle o/u combination guns are popular in Europe. More than 95% of them are shotgun over rifle barrel combinations. The rifle barrel being below the shotgun was because the rifle calibers generally produce higher pressures. Being placed on the bottom they are closer to the pivot point of the action. Most of these combination guns begin around $2000.00 and up. The Brno 300 is one of the exceptions, with the rifle barrel over the shotgun. Usually costing less than $1,000.00 in Europe. It is an entry gun into European hunting culture and traditions.

I own two of these: a Sabatti 12ga/6.5X57 and a Valmet 12ga/223 rem.
