Personally I would look for a used Browning Citori. Sometimes you can pick up a new one for that.

CDNN has the Browning Cynergy Lightweight Feather for $1399.99 right now 26" weighs 4lbs. 14 oz. and the 28" weighs 5-1. After shipping ($17.98) and FFL fee (variable $15-$40), it will slide in just under budget. Just an option...no experience with it...

My choices would be an SKB or a used Verona. Nothing against Browning or Beretta I just like my choices better.

SKB
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewIt ... =157939646

He may find a new SKB 410 for less than 1500, but it may take some digging. Here is the Company link.

Verona 28 ga / 410 combo
http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewIt ... =157550949

Verona's are harder to find.

+1. I doubt you can find one new for that, but you can get a nice used one...

A used Browning Citori would be my choice, too.

+1. If I were in the market for a .410 O/U, that is where my search would start, and probably end.

I have a Remington 870 and 100, Citori, Cynergy Feather, and a Beretta 687EL in 410. Any one of those guns would be more than one could ask for. Depending on what your going to do with it. Every once in awhile my sons challenge me to a .410 skeet championship and we all go into the safe and pick our weapons, I usually go with the Cynergy Feather for no other reason than I like the lightweight and handling of the gun. I could probably do just as well with any of the others, it depends what feels best.

The best feeling, shooting, swinging .410 I've ever gotten ahold of was a Browning Ulta XS with 30" barrels. I bought mine new at about 2 grand but a used one can be found for around $1,300 to $1,500.00.

I bought a CZ Redhead .410 back when I first started shooting a .410 that was built on a true .410 frame. That gun was like swinging a 2' fishing rod. Way to light an whippy feeling for me.

I have a Browning Citori Gr. III Skeet and a Citori Lightning Gr. VI, both with 28" barrels. While the grades are meaningless, the high-rib (Skeet) versus low-rib (Lightning) styles do make a difference to me. I have less tendency to shoot high with the Lightning and would recommend this as a good choice for anyone. There are plenty of other terrific choices out there but most come at higher cost.

Yeah.... a day late, and a dollar short. A few months back, the Savage Milano 28 could be had for $750 to $800.

You've gotta be ready when "opportunity knocks"!!

I apologize for brief hijacking - pm me if you can.

Do the O/U .410 bores kick quite a bit, specifically the lighter ones? I'm looking for a beginner gun to get my daughter started on but one that I would also shoot from time to time. Thank you and sorry for not having anything meaningful to offer the OP.

FTA, A lot of us old geezers were started out on a 410 by our Dad's, mostly because they were considered a "kid's" gun. Unless your daughter is really young or small she will enjoy a well fitted and padded 20 gauge must more. There is only a tiny amount of shot in a 410 and hitting moving targets can be a real challenge, enough to frustrate a youngster and make her loose interest when she doesn't see targets breaking. (Of course that happens to me with a 12 gauge but I'm pig-headed.) With a gun that fits her and has a good recoil pad light loads in a 20 won't hurt her and she will enjoy hitting things. A youth model gas operated gun like the Remington 1100 will also help absomb the recoil.

The Yildiz 410OU is a darling. Don't pay attention to Turkish bashers on this one!!! Go to Yildiz site for pics and discussions. It was new gun of the year 2010 in UK and will be perfect for the young lady. You will probabably want to steal it-----lots of fun and a well made gun for a lot less than the target models. Academy sports sells em for $500.

I went through this mental exercise a few years back and bought a Citori for $1,000.00 that had around 5 boxes of shells through it.

No regrets at all.

I have had two Citori's and I have a Cynergy Feather now. Either would do well but i realy like the light weight and fit of the Cynergy feather myself. You should be able to get either for less then $1500

FWIW, I have an older CItori lightweight with english straight grip stock and 26" bbls choked IC/M. It is in great shape, a few nics on stock, but nothing major. Blueing is good all over. Great youth gun, does not kick at all. Stock is factory and has not been altered. I would let it go for $850 plus shipping to your FFL. I am located in Silicon Valley if you want to make the drive up -- we could meet at the range in Morgan Hill and you could shoot it. PM me if interested.

Sheesh -- just noticed the OP was made in Feb 2010! Sorry!

Browning Citori. A little heavier than most, but with that, there would be no recoil. I dare anybody to find a better 410...
