Hi,
I'm looking to buy an O/U 12ga shotgun. I'm LH so I would like a LH configuration (cast on and palm swell) or a neutral one. I will use it mainly for recreationnal clay shooting but I would also like to eventually get involved in competition (I don't know yet wether it will trap skeet or sporting clay so I would like a shotgun that would let me try all of them if possible). I want a shotgun that will last long and that is nice looking (quality of wood is important to me). I'm whilling to spend about 3000-4000$. What would your suggestions be? Yet, I've been looking at beretta but I'm open to anything.

Thank you

I use a Cynergy sporting o/u and really like it. I disabled the ejectors so it only extracts the empties for reloading. Adding an adjustable comb lets me use it for all games.

Give the Caesar Guerini's a long serious look.

DeHaan SGr with grade 5 wood!! I have a LH SGr O/U with only grade 3 (std) but with adjustable comb monte carlo & LH palm pistol grip stock. Also came with 2 barrel sets. It was well under $3K and adding grade 5 wood would still be possible for under $4K, I think.

I shoot shoot left handed,but I use a right handed auto and an o/u for trap. People ask way too much for left handed autos. The o/u is what works well for lefty's. I learned with right handed guns so i am used to it, just have to adapt. Although my scores are the same no matter the dexterity of the gun.

I bought a Guerini Magnus sporting left hand back in october, been very happy with it. Heres a LH summit sporting on gunbroker from the same dealer that I bought mine - call him on the phone or email and they will give you a good price.

+1 on Sportsman's Finest. I was there last week. They have left handed guns in stock.

I got a factory left handed Beretta DT-10 and it is a nice gun if you can find one like it.

If you can find a LH Zoli you will be very pleasantly surprised at the feel and pointability.

The overall shootability of the gun is impressive.

I went from a LH Browning 525 to the zSport and feel as if my average scores went up 4-5 birds.

It has to be the fit and maybe any gun would have helped if the fit was the same.

None the less...my experience. YMMV.

Visit a good dealer and shoulder a few. I like a lower profile gun so the Beretta and CGs were nice. The Browning 725 is a nice gun too. Just make sure whatever you buy, leave some scratch to have it fit to you.

I recently purchased a CZ-912 to find it cast off. I sent an email to CZ asking them if there were any options, and asked about their O/U's and recieved this answer from them:

"Sean,

Sadly, the only shotgun we carry that isn’t cast off for a right-handed shooter is the 712 ALS semi-automatic.

Sorry I didn’t have a better answer for you. Thanks,

Lefty here and partial to the Beretta 68X series. I've never had a 68 feel or fit bad with a cast on stock and you can find LH stocks for them everywhere, probably why I have three of them. I just bought another LH stock, fore end, pad, and bolt for $200.

You are heading in the right direction. I have 3 LH 682's. I had the beretta service center swap one and Cole's provided the others. I might even sell one. email ^%xhsmithjr@nc(dot)rr(dot)com

Cost is a lot more than the CZ production guns, but DeHaan sells the Huglu custom shop versions of the same guns. He can supply both LH SxS or O/U made to your spec's. Plus action opening lever can be made to swing reversed for LH also. You can also order adjustable comb and/or monte carlo stocks with LH palm swell and up to grade 5 wood. Sadly CZ/Huglu doesn't offer a LH action for their semi auto's. Try Tristar for a LH receiver Semi.

I use a Browning Cynergy Sporting for sporting clays. this one is pretty neutral. I am getting ready to purchase a Caesar Guerini and have them install a LH stock. Their customer service is amazing and the turn around time for the LH stock is right away. its one reason why I moved away from beretta. although they do make fine guns.

I just recently bought a new Beretta SV10 Prevail III. Beretta had (has?) left-handed wood for that gun. All I did was order the gun through my local dealer, and Beretta send a "regular", ie: right-handed, one to their service department to have the wood switched to left-handed. They keep the RH wood and all it cost me was $200 service fee to have the stock switched. Boom!

(Only works for guns that are new, never left the dealer.)

Try doing that aftermarket and tell me how much it hurts.

Whether intentional or not, my CZ Canvasback is dead neutral and feels just like my 1956 Browning Superposed.
