I want to buy a used Beretta 12 or 20ga over under. I would really like a BL series, 686, or a Blackwing. My budget is under $1000. I don't care if its a little beat up as long as it has't been hacked up, and it locks up tight and shoots well. I am in Spokane WA if anyone local has one they want to sell. I would also consider other brands but the "B guns" fit me well. I never see anything nice at the gun shows and there aren't any good used gun shops around here. Where should I look?
Budget under $1000! Have you looked at the new CZ's ? I think they have a few under that price. People that have them seem to like them.
I pity the man that has never been loved by a dog!
Yes, I don't really feel that any gun over $1000 is going to kill birds any more dead than a $1000 one will. Not to mention its going to get scratched, used in the rain and inevitably dropped while out in the field. So $1000 is about the limit on what I am ok with hunting with. I already have WAY more than that wrapped up in dogs, dog expenses, gear, truck, gas etc. I have been hunting with my trusty 870 for the past few seasons. The shotgun was last on my list and I don't have a whole lot left over haha. I have handled a few CZs but have been told by a couple of trusted gunsmiths to stay away from them. Do you have any experience with them?DonF wrote:Budget under $1000! Have you looked at the new CZ's ? I think they have a few under that price. People that have them seem to like them.
Have you checked the shotgun classifieds over on the Northwest Firearms board?
You like these dogs because you like the truth. And these dogs, if you watch them, they will show you the truth.
I have. Most of the stuff I see on there is in Western WA. But thank you for the suggestion. I haven't checked there lately so I will have another look.bustingcover wrote:Have you checked the shotgun classifieds over on the Northwest Firearms board?
As an update, it turns out Montana is the best place to find a good used O/U in Eastern Washington. Ended up finding exactly what I wanted on Guns International.
