Winchester 101, a real nice water-fowling piece even in the synthetic stock version.

My brother in law really likes his Browning Citori O/U.

I have had both the Browning Cynergy and Citori in 3.5" 12ga. Both are very good guns. I shoot a Cynergy camo 3.5" gun right now. It's been flawless for the past 4 years and 2000 rounds.

I'd say any O/U with selective single trigger, ejectors and is steel shot capable would make a fine waterfowling gun.

I wonder what a 3.5 inch shell feels like out of an OU......
Rocked the heck out of me when I shot a few to break in my Extrema 2, in a hunting situation probably would not notice nearly as much.

Gun weight should be a consideration for a waterfowling gun. Some O/U's are just too light to be comfortable when shooting heavy....even heavy 2 3/4" loads....duck and goose loads.
For that reason, the best upland O/U's make the worst duck O/U's.......

OUs are great guns but any doube can be a bit awkward to load/unload in tight spaces or when wading deep water.

Just something to thing about.

I shoot a 3.5 Cynergy field model that I picked up used last year. It's great for waterfowl, reliable and easy to clean. As some of the other fellas have mentioned, I would not want to carry it upland hunting all day, but at 8.5 lbs or so it makes a fine gunning arm even with 3.5" shells if you want to use them (which I typically don't, but it is nice to be able to grab any shell in the boat/blind and shoot it).

Yeap, the Citori in the photo is 7 pounds 15 ounces. It is not a gun I want to carry all day, but one that's perfect for waterfowl.

what are these ducks? they are nice looking little chaps. as for the gun question. an o/u that fits is best. maybe a lamber or a lincoln would be good choices. not expensive, fair enough quality

The imfamous Bufflehead (diver family and tree cavity nester), many a day afield has been saved by the Buffy. There a little stocker than teal. fly fast and low, decoy like there on a string.
