As long as you realize that CZ shotguns are NOT Czech-made like their pistols and thus are good for basic hunting/light clays usage, they will do the job. There are several gun makers in Turkey, and in Huglu, and all guns are NOT the same

The overall quality is good, However I have found barrel regulation problems on several.
I would suggest you consider the SKB SxS's. They are also Turkish guns.They look good, perform well, and the US parent company (GU) has a proven record of customer service. I have seen no problems with these guns.
We have used SKB guns for our rental and school guns for years. I personally have a 20 ga G2 that I love. We are currently Beta testing their new autoloader which has so far proven to be everything promised.

The current SKBs are made by the same folks who made the S&W SxS and the Kimber SxS and now make the Dickinson for Cabela's; good guns!

I purchased a CZ Redhead Premier O/U in 20 gauge with 28" barrels a year ago. I have been very pleased with this gun. I do not shoot thousands of rounds in a year, but between 500-700. This gun is well balanced, and fits me very well. It shoots where I point it, and I love the weight distribution. Excellent gun for my money. I would not hesitate to recommend this gun to anyone. I have thoroughly enjoyed my CZ so far. Hey Oneounceload, I see you frequent another forum I am a member of. Nice to see you!

I took my new CZ Sterling Southpaw to the club for a few rounds of 5 stand. Fits very well, works well, and shoots very well. Knowing it was not made by CZ made me a bit skeptical but no more. A good cleaning gave me a chance to check out the quality and I am pleased with the components. While I will not be shooting 5,000 rds per year, I expect the durability to be good. As a new o/u it is a little tight as they all are. At this point I think it is comparable to my Citori and the price was slightly under $1,000. Also, my Beretta Mobil choke tubes are compatible for more value. The fit and trim is excellent. Before I received the gun, I was considering sending the stock out to get an adjustable comb however, the fit is just right and I will keep it stock.

As time goes on, the Turkish-made guns seem to be improving nicely, with the exception of the bottom-line stuff. There is only so much you can do and still sell a gun for under $500.

Just like the Fausti sisters - they will build the quality to the desired price point.
Yep. I saw a Fausti sidelock a few years back in the $50k range, likely worth every penny. I've seen their bottom line stuff too, it might make good tomato stakes.

I have a CZ Ringneck 16ga that I have shot sporting clays and hunted with since 2006. It is a good gun and I have done well with it at sporting clays shooting over 2000 registered targets some years. Hunted pheasants with it yesterday and will be doing some nssa skeet shooting with it this year.

My latest CZ shotgun that I won in a give a way at the world vintage skeet shoot in May of this year is a 28ga Bobwhite that has introduced me to the 28ga world and been a lot of fun to shoot skeet and sporting clays with. Just looking forward to hunt with it this fall for some doves and quail.
