My Yildiz broke.

My SPZ ME 12 GAUGE STEEL YILDIZ O/U broke during a day of clay shooting. It started with a double firing and then a few shots later the top barrel would not fire. I went to Academy Sports and they sent it to Brielly’s For warranty repair. Three weeks later it came back and is fixed. I now have to get it out to the range and shoot it to see if it holds up. I will post results on performance after a couple hundred rounds are put through her.

Glad to hear Academy and Briley took care of you.

Academy processed with no questions asked and turn around at Brielly was as promised. The failure of the Yildiz prompted me to start shopping and I found and bought a Browning Citori Hunter (1997). It is in excellent condition in the bluing and wood finish. Very happy with it. At $850.00 is that a fair price?

Fair enough if it FITS, it has the barrel length you like; aftermarket chokes are readily available and any half-assed gunsmith can fix it if it breaks

Barrel length is fine for my weak arms and shoulder. It is weight forward though, any idea what is best to balance it? It has a CG about 1 1/2" forward of the hinge.

Take an empty hull or similarly sized tube that will fit on the butt stock hole and fill it completely full of lead shot and insert it it. You may need to wrap it in tape or similar to keep it from moving. That's the cheap way out
There are also mercury recoil devices that fit into the stock that can help as well.

100 rounds and working

I went out and fired 100 rounds through my repaired SPZ ME12 ga. Without any problems yesterday. Blew through a whole box of clays, wish I could say I hit them all but that is another story. The gun is running fine so far will update again at 300.
