i bought two 20" remington smooth bore cyl choke barrels with rifle sights, one for my 870 and one for my 1100 at a gun show for 50.00 each. easy on-off for hunting or defence.

John Wayne in El Dorado and his sidekick Mississippi with his "can't see too well" shotgun lol.

I had a Stoeger 20ga, and it was a beast. It shot great and never had any problems, I wish I hadn't sold it to fund another gun purchase.

Stoeger offers a Double Defense Shotgun with a rail you could mount a light on, that would be something I would look at if home defense was its intended use.

I had this one-
Coach Gun Supreme Shotgun
Finish/Stock: AA-Grade Gloss Walnut, Brushed Nickel / Synthetic Stock
Gauge: 20-Gauge Chambered for: 2-3/4", 3"

Stay away from any inexpensive double with a single trigger or ejectors. Trouble waiting to happen.

The CZ is a nice looking gun, made in Turkey

Single hammer? Single trigger?

Fire both barrels at once? Yikes!

Schlitz45's gun is a muzzle loading, percussion cap fired, black powder gun.
The hammer has a barrel selector switch that moves side to side to choose which barrel you use. The hammer must be cocked for each shot.

Guessing, from pic, it uses 209 primers. What size powder charge? 60gr FF?

Knew about the safety/barrel selector, same as all modern single trigger. Was being facetious.
A double fire is fun.

Bill’s correct, the “Diablo” is ls black powder w/209 primers. I usually shoot 21 pieces of #4 buck shot or .715 pumpkin balls. It’s a fun one & can deliver to your door.
