check out the Stoeger Condor line of O/U's. i ahve one and though it's not as nice as some of the Browning Citori's and theold Winchester 101's i owned in the past, it's still a decent shotgun for the price.

they are made by E. R. Amantino in Brazil and imported by Stoeger.

The beretta 390 is single handily the greatest semi auto ever produced. I own one as well as my dad and brother. There isnt a more reliable semi out there. I prefer semis for clays. Not as heavy and not as much recoil. The only real plus you get with an o/u is the ability to shoot 2 different chokes. I would look strongly into a used Beretta 390 (they don't make them anymore) or a 391. The Beretta xplorer is nice as well.

Remington has imported a shotgun under the name "Spartan" I bought one at Gander Mountain a few years ago. It is mfg. by Baikal. About $425.....(but that was back in '05) Great gun, simple accurate, no bells and whistles....but It's my current favorite clay gun.

yes they did, but discontinued several years ago. they are using another importer now, but i can't remember who. might check out the Baikal website for ditributors. IIRC, it's the same shotgun as the Sparta that Remington had, but just uses the name Baikal instead.

The Baikal 310 is the O/U model which was sold under Remington as the Spartan...exact same gun without the Remington name. They are available from Cheaper than Dirt. and quite a few available on Gunbroker.

you would never go wrong with a Browning Citori IMO. very well made and fine handling. long as you know a new Citori is going to be at least $2000 and up, and a used one in good condition, probably $1500 and up.

I def agree with Axxe. Citoris are the best "affordable" O/U IMO. I'd save for it, you'll never regret it. $2000 might sound like a lot, but the next step up being a Merkel will run you around $5000 and up. I love Citoris, but have never been able to save for one before something else catches my fancy. Save, buy a Citori, and never look back!
