In England the Lanber is our best selling shotgun. They have been at it 45 years and make very good budget over and unders. They do seem to last as well as "B" guns.

It could be up to 30 years old without more detail cant help.

You shouldn't have to select the second barrel it has a recoil operated changeover, firing the first barrel automatically selects the second.

Kind Regards from Old England

If it has fixed chokes, it has been around a while. If you have to flick the switch between shots, there is likely something wrong with the gun.

It is probably fine. It has inertia triggers. That mean that when you pull the first time, the barrel you have selected on the safety will fire first, and the second one will fire on the second pull provided it has been re-set by the recoil. Try this, pull the trigger and without doing anything else lightly bump the butt stock on the floor to reset the trigger, then pull again and the second barrel should fire. When you flick the safety / barrel selector you are manually re setting the trigger.

That 's just the way inertia trigger guns work. My Beretta 686 works this way. My Cynergy has mechanical triggers, so it does not require recoil to reset, it is done mechanically when the trigger is pulled.

I have a friend that has a Lanber and it is a nice well made shotgun. Congratulations.

A modest wager says it isn't.

Both Frank and myself are assuming that when Tony says:

he is actually shooting the gun, not dry firing it.

Lanber over-under shotgun review Thursday, 16 August 2007

Find out why this Spanish-made shotgun has become a best-seller in such a short space of time. Along came Gunmark (the former name of Beretta importers GMK).

To describe GMK's acquisition of the importing rights for the brand as a success story is a huge understatement.
The reasons for this success are simple. It is, and always has been, affordable by most beginners. It is tough and reliable, well designed, and it points and shoots nicely. It is widely available through the extensive Beretta dealership network, and if things do go wrong it is easily repaired with readily available spares.

Of course Beretta sells more guns but:

Lanber sells only 2 models a Sporter and a Game over and Under, Beretta sells 52 models but none of its models outsells the Lanber models.

Look at our UK site GMK are a very intereting company:

Funny, I assumed the exact opposite.

Hey Tony G 68, which is it? Inquiring minds want to know.

When shooting and dry firing, I will try the method advised above. Cheers

Righto, I tried dry firing then bumping on the floor, yes this worked, however the thump was considerable, soooo I found a suitable screwdriver, pulled the butt stock off to see how this thing works- very simple ... if it wasn't full of dirt and gunge. A good clean and oil followed, will report back when I get a chance to live fire. Cheers Tony

Sounds like a Stevens-Savage or an IGA/Stoeger double.
Not much to look at and only costs a pauper's wage, but the SOB just flat works, every time.
Nice to know such arms exist on the international market.
