Vast majority are Perazzis (MX2000S for Rhode, MX2005 for Richmond), and Berettas (DT11 for Hancock and Eller), with a couple krieghoffs (K80 for Thompson & Cogdell) in the mix. That's the US team.

Might be others in other countries, but those in contention are shooting one of those 3 guns.

Hancock returned to his old DT10. He did shoot the DT11 for a short while until it broke.

Viper: What you are saying is incorrect: Hancock never shot a DT11, so there is nothing that could have broken. The DT11 arrived in the US too late for Vincent to be comfortable, to he preferred to stick to his DT10, which is fitted with a custom stock.
I'm not sure where you got the info that he ever intended to shoot at the Olympics with the DT11, or that it broke.

I am also interested in hearing what barrel length Hancock uses as well as the rest of the Olympic Skeet competitors.

My best estimation would be that everyone is using 28" barrels?

I just listened to the most recent Behind the Break podcast (http://behindthebreak.com/) which features an interview with Derrick Mein.

Derrick is one of two men who were recently selected to represent the US in trap at the next olympic games. Derrick indicated that he qualified shooting his regular gun (Kolar Max Lite Sporting, fixed ramp tapered rib) with no changes other than tightening the choke tubes to Improved Modified and Full. For Sporting Clays he said he shoots a lot of Modified. I suspect his gun is set to shoot "high" like a typical trap gun and like most of the top sporting shooters seem to prefer.

Derrick said he's been with Kolar for 5 years. In that time he has won numerous national and world titles with this gun (https://www.kolararms.com/derrick-mein/) including:

2018 US FITASC Grand Prix Champion
2018 World All Around Champion
2018 U.S. Open FITASC Champion
2018 Southeast Regional Champion
2018 NSCA Championship Tour Champion
2017 NSCA National Champion
2017 National FITASC Champion
2017 North American FITASC Champion
2016 FITASC World Champion
2016 NSCA National Sub Gauge All Around Champion

Anyone looking for the best competition shotgun that money can buy should certainly put Kolar on their list of manufacturers to consider. I've owned or shot most of the guns listed above but Kolar is what I choose to shoot now.

Congratulations Derrick!

It's good that Kolar finally made it, and they make fine guns. However, based on the original thread and being in the skeet forum, no points this round. I wish Kolar made a proper I-Skeet gun, but they're not even in the ballpark.

All of these folks could shoot lights out with any gun you handed them! They are extraordinary shooters with more talent in their pinky finger nail than I possess in my entire body!

Oyeme, you're right, but they also do get to choose which gun they shoot. I heard it said that you don't shoot great because you have great equipment, you have great equipment because you shoot great.

Most end up with a Perazzi or a Kreighoff or Beretta that's balanced to feel like a Perazzi. Most have 28" or 29 1/2" barrels. Most have highly fitted stocks that are a bit short when compared to sporting guns with a little extra cast in them.

Now when it comes to bunker, it seems to be more evenly distributed and congrats to Kolar for making the grade. We would have gone with them instead of Perazzi, but they just couldn't get the weight distributed right for a skeet gun.

My Kolar Max Lite Sporting barrels (32" fixed ramp taper, 1.62Kg with factory Titanium chokes) are lighter in the muzzle and heavier in the monoblock as compared to my friend's similar weight and length Perazzi barrels. You can see this if you put just the muzzle on the scale and then just the monoblock (with a support at the opposite end). This means they probably swing faster than you would expect based on their weight alone. I happen to like a heavy receiver to reduce the felt recoil and long light barrels to swing easily so Kolar is a good choice. I primarily shoot Sporting Clays and don't have an opinion on what's optimum for Skeet though.

Most end up with Perazzi or Beretta (now mostly Beretta) because Beretta pays the most, not because its guns are that much better.

In the old days, all the best Euro Olympic Skeet shooters used Browning B25s.

Eric Swinkles, Kiek van Iperen, Hennie Dompelling, Herbert Seeberger, and others I am forgetting. Hennie swore by his Beronwing until 2000 when he took 4th and missed a medal by 1 bird due to a 102 fever in day 2. It was then that Beretta took an interest in him and he switched to Beretta and then swore by it. Then everybody shot Perazzi until Beretta ramped up its marketing budget. Now everybody shoots Beretta. I guarantee you that if Yildz threw enough money at the top shooters, it would suddenly become the gun of choice for all of them.

jerrys said, "I guarantee you that if Yildz threw enough money at the top shooters, it would suddenly become the gun of choice for all of them."

I agree completely and is true in all sports. Same is true of the ammunition they "prefer".
