About to pick one up. Feels really nice and looks good too, especially for the price.
The Yildiz warranty is two years. Link is:I saw one at our local Academy but I wasn't interested at the time cause I never heard of that brand. But they told me warranty is handled through Academy and there was a place down south Texas that fixed them . I'm not sure but I think they said it was lifetime warranty .
I appreciate your input and info . But my limit ever on a S/G would be in the neighborhood of $700.00 max . I don't plan to competition , just wanting a very nice S/G for my money for all around hunting and shooting skeet/trap if I so desire and have the time to . I'm still a working person 40 hrs a week and then my other time is with my wife and things to do . I seldom even get to the range but I do every chance I can . Like I said tho I really appreciate the input info !!The Yildiz warranty is two years. Link is:
Don't fool yourself that going cheap in this game is the way to go.
While a 10 grand gun is nice, this can be done with a gun for less than 2,000 bucks.
Do your research and shoot every S/G you can lay your hands on.
Your body and mind will push you into the right S/G for yourself.
I was in a Cabelas this past Wednesday and I did not know they bought and sold 2nd hand guns ? But this was up near Dallas and they had several I sure would like to have had . One was a Browning BPS 12-ga , Another was a Rem 1100 and another was the Rem 11-87 . All fine guns but the one that seem to fit me best was the Browning BPS and it was only $449.00 . If I had brought my Rem 870 Express with me I would have done some trading . A visit to the shotgun counter tho spoiled me badly . Gentleman showed me several , one I have been interested in lately was a Stoeger 12-ga SxS . Very nice but very hard to break down being new . They also had the same gun in a .410 SxS . That was quite a site . Then he showed me a Franchi 20-ga. O/U . Gosh I couldn't believe how light it was . But the price tag was out of reach anyway but he still showed me also a 28-ga and that was sweet ! Lastly he showed me some Browning O/Us' cause he knew I couldn't afford them but they were in 12 and 20 ga . Excellent guns but now that I helt a Franchi I wonder which is better , Browning or Franchi ? I know some here have mentioned the 28-ga S/Gs' . Are these designed for Skeet/Trap/Hunting and if hunting what species , birds ?For a budget of $700 max, a better quality, lightly used gun would be your best choice. It most likely will be a much older O/U, or a newer semi or pump.
Bob, I were closer to your facility I'd be splattering clay dust all over your grounds...promise! If we ever have more reasons to be out that way I will definitely make it a priority to do so. Until such time as that...buckle down, here comes winter.when you 2 going to come crush clays with us at the forum shoot? itll be a great vacation, great time, with great people.
