I'm looking a new 20 gauge semi-auto shotgun with a straight English stock.

All english, or true "prince of wales" stocks I've come across are on O/U or SS.
Anyone have ideas?

It's hard enough to find a 20 Gauge semiauto...

This rounded, open pistol grip (not quite a true PoW but closer than most) is probably as close as you'll get without shaving down a stock (which can be done). http://www.franchiusa.com/franchi-48al-shotgun/

The Silver Lightning is only available in 12 (despite it making more sense in 20 than 12).

Have to try to find a Remington 1100 special field. Not new but that's probably your only option.

Remington made an 11-87 Premier Upland Special in 20, also, more recently than the 1100 SF. Was cataloged until a few years ago, and essentially the same treatment of the 11-87 as the 1100 Special Field was.

Franchi made a few straight-stock 48s as well, relatively recently.

Straight gripped stock sets for Remington LT 20s were fairly common. I bought a set myself and like it.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I know Browning still offers BPS (pump) upland special,
http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/detail.asp?fid=011B&cid=012&tid=216, but that makes less sense to me.

If you do not mind a used semi auto,Beretta 303 Upland or Browning B-80 Upland Special have
a straight stock.
