What do you want to use it for?

Take a look at Stoeger, they have a decent SxS at a reasonable price. Keep in mind though, you get what you pay for.

What do you plan to do with it? You usually get what you pay for. If you just want to blast away, the Stoegers are popular with the Cowboy set because they hold up fairly well. If you plan any wingshooting don't get less than a used Stevens 311. They aren't Purdeys, but they do work. A GOOD wingshooting SxS will set you back upwards of $1000.

Despite what the ad says, they are NOT made by CIA, they are IMPORTED by CIA- from China. Cheap, fairly crude.

Stoeger is OK, Stevens was the plain vanilla workhorse of SXS shotguns. Boito was another cheap import from Brazil in the 70's.

I picked up a decent Fox Sterlingworth for $500 earlier this year. Nice American gun from the 1940s. 28 inch full and modified, will be my bird gun.

i think the stoeger will be a much better choice. that one kind of looked cheap. i bought a stoeger condor 12ga O/U, very well made shotgun, it's not a browning or other high dollar shotgun, but it's working fine for me.

Lately I have been using a Stoeger coach gun in cowboy action shooting. Nothing pretty, but it is working just fine for my purpose. Had to shoot some shells through it to loosen it up a little .
