Hello all,

I am a fairly new shooter to Sporting Clays. I am mainly a trapshooter, but enjoy a round of Sporting occasionally. I do not like using my Perazzi O/U Trap Gun for Sporting. My funds and time have me @ the $3000.00 price range or less. Opinions on guns in that range?

Matt

For $3K thats easy, buy yourself another set of barrels for that P-Stick and go get em :wink:

TR, has a nice set of 32" Perazzi barrels for sale and you would have money left over.

pm30, .735 bore, 1.60 kilograms, Briley S2 Thinwalls - I think there are 8 extended choke tubes - $2400.00 TR never has shot these barrels much if at all, he shoots his 34's. This is a good price and these ARE 32's not 31 1/2".

The barrels for the P-stick sounds like a good idea, unless it is the stock of the gun that bothers you shooting sporting. Beretta 682 sounds good too. I know a few guys with Browning 625's and I have really liked them as well. You might also consider Caesar Guerini. I think you can get a new Summit Sporting for less than $3K and they are very nice shotguns, IMO.

Matt,
I would go with new barrels for your P-gun if the stock work. But for some reason I think your stock would be to long and high.

Then I would get a Caesar Guerini, Beretta 682 or 687 , Browning 625 or Browning Cynergy.


As for barrel lenght a 30 or 32. Go with what feel better to you.

Matt I will be calling you soon for some Down Range wads.
John

In my opinion, the best gun (o/u) for under $3,000.00 is a Caesar Guerini Summit Limited. I have started shooting one and I love it. In fact, I broke my first 100 straight (Easy course) with it last week while shooting a practice course.

I do not like shooting Sporting with the trap stock. Wanting a Sporting gun with a Sporting Stock. I appreciate everyone's opinions so far.

I'd steer clear of Guerini at the moment... at least until they get to the bottom of that rash of blowups.

Some guy's Guerini blew apart while shooting a reload injuring others. Side plate blew off and schrapnelled some folks. Nobody permanently injured. Stating that there's a "rash" of Guerini incidents is exaggerated. I've had my Guerini fanfire (my fault, didn't tighten the stock enough after removal) three times without incident. Overstatements like this serve no purpose.

Just sayin'..

Ron

I like my Browning Citori Grand Prix Sporting very much ... I say check out the gun and see if it fits you.

If you shoot a Perazzi well, I would look for something that handles similarly. From hearing what most say, I would lean toward a Beretta 682 from Cole Customs or CG at that price. Add a little more and you could have a used MX8 in sporting config if you watch closely.

Browning 625 is a great gun for the price. I purchased one for my son and I really like it as well.

Another thought would be to head to a custom stock maker. Have one made to fit your Perazzi with an adjustable comb and you'll easily be able to shootit for both.

I recently purchased a new 686 White Onyx Sporting 30" model. For the money ($2,018.18 OUT THE DOOR) I think it's the best sporting model.
