if, I wanted to buy an o/u shotgun in right hand what gun makers have a neutral cast. I know browning does. what about their older (superposed) shotguns. I purchased the 725 field model. and feel this info would be helpful for future LH purchasers.

My 1956 Superposed 20 gauge (see my avatar) is dead neutral, as is my 28 gauge Ruger Red Label.

You can get a Neutral Cast on a K-80.

never measured but i've found Brownings to be less 'casty' than other brands.

My experience is that both Browning and Beretta produce mainly neutral cast stocks for the US market. But I’ve seen a number of examples that had cast off. My advise is to check before you buy,

Regarding Browning Superpose, I don’t remember seeing one with cast, but I’m sure there are a tiny percentage with cast.

Browning says (phone call) no cast. Beretta says 1/8 to 1/4 in.

Does a neutral cast K80 work well for a lefty?

Better than a RH cast gun but not as good as a LH cast version

I'm struggling between a rh ht perazzi at a great price and a neutral K80 at a great price. Both used of course.

Cast makes it possible to mount the gun with your head kept erect. If you don’t mind bending your neck over to the stock, you don’t need cast. I believe in the erect head and neck fitting method so I believe in significant cast. In my case it is cast on since I am a lefty.

I shoot lefty as well and love my Citori 725 Field. I also added a Cynergy Field this year and it's every bit as impressive as the Citori. I'm shooting 90% on pheasants this season. As you said, Browning is noted for their neutral stocks and I can definitely tell the difference when i shoulder other O/U's in a store. I love Beretta's too, but they just do not fit me like the Browning's.

Both my Ruger Red Labels are neutral. The Browning 725 Feather I shouldered is cast off, but not as pronounced as many other manufacturers (FYI, Browning customer service will tell you it's neutral). A lesson is trying rather than believing. I just bought a FABARM Elos D2 Reverse after giving my Rugers to my son.
