Oh man… just saw this beauty at Collectors:
Last time I looked, CZ doesn’t make their shotguns, still outsourcing their manufacture to Huglu in Turkey. That’s not a knock, by the way: I’ve fired many actual Huglu-branded shotguns, and they’re excellent.
Just so everyone’s on the same page as I am, note Kim’s Must-Haves list:
- side-by-side barrels no less than 28″ in length
- double trigger
- straight “English” stock (no revolver grip)
- splinter forend
- pretty wood
And all the above for quite a bit less than a grand… ooooh mommy, I hate being poor.
Afterthought: compare the above to the Italian-made Weatherby for sale at the same shop. The Weatherby may be a better shotgun than the CZ… but in no way is it nearly three times better.
