    I am about to order a 12 gauge Uplander Supreme and am leaning toward the 26". I doubt I will shoot it much...I may hunt with it a little. It will be more for show and to fill a whole in my collection. I currently do not have a side by side and I think the Uplander Supreme provides alot of bang for the buck. I think the 26" would be a little handier to hunt with and also look a little better than the 28".

    Won't make any difference with the 12, if you were getting a 20 I would go 28". Either will be fast.

    I would suggest the standard Uplander. Ejectors and single selective trigger in an inexpensive SxS isn't usually a good combination. If you search the net, you will see 10 times as many problems with the Supreme as the standard.

    in a double gun that is going to be used for skeet trap or hunting ejectors may not be a good idea. unless your going to pop both barrels everytime. ejectors will toss the fired shell along with the unfired one.

    on my side by side i opted for a model without auto-ejection. i often reload just one barrel. just depends on whats going to frustrate you more :) for me its picking up unfired shells.

    Stoger Uplander

    I have a Savage Fox Model B-D and love it. I purchased it before I joined the Navy back in 1969. It is difficult to find any SxS's in this day and age that are reasonably priced. I purchased the Stoger Uplander in 12 Gauge with 28" bbls. I bird hunt and also turkey hunt. I like the 26" length the best but I got a great deal on the 28" so I purchased it. The first thing I do is remove the butt stock and I clean all the internal parts. After I reassemble the gun I change out the factory original firing pins with stainless steel firing pins. I have had no issues with the Stoger Uplander Supreme.

    You might consider the Stoeger Field model of the Uplander. It has two triggers and that seems sturdier than the single triggers. I like mine with the 26" barrel. I might eventually put a butt pad on it, but not now. Be sure to clean the gun thoroughly before shooting. I use a product called "EEZOX" for cleaning and lubrication. It dries and lubricates dry as well as preserving. Good luck!
