Been looking at the new Gen2 CZ Bobwhites in 20ga / 28inch barrel and had a question for the group owners about their Bobwhite's weight.

I have a Gen1 version and it's been a great gun and I thought about upgrading to a Gen2 as they list the overall weight as 6 pounds, and I figured it maybe worth it to shed a 1/2 pound. I've always thought the 6 pound range was a great weight for a longer mile upland 20 ga.

I've ran across a few at local gun stores and the local Sportsman Warehouse(s) and everyone I've weighed has been 6# 4oz to 6# 6oz.

Does anyone have; or has anyone seen one in the 6 pound weight range? Or am I looking for hens teeth:-)

CZ has always lied about the weight of their guns.

I have the Gen I.

I have a G2 in 20 gauge and mine is 6.4 pounds. I have heard others comment that theirs are not 6 pounds. I guess when CZ says 6 pounds, they are saying 6 pounds in the broadest sense 6 vs 7 pounds. :wink: Regardless, it is still a nice light handling 20 gauge.

A little late to see this post but my G1 20Ga. Bobwhite is 6 lb. 11.2 oz on an accurate scale and my wife's G2 is 6 lb 5.2 oz.

I'd like to add that although they tend to be on the heavy side of their listed weights, all the Huglu guns I own or have owned were nicely balanced and handled well.

I handled a 20ga. yesterday at my LGS for about the third time and I really like it but the triggers are awful.

Nothing new about spec sheet showing optimistic gun weight, even making allowances for wood density.
When did you ever see a Browning Citori or BSS that met the weight specs?
That's why people ask real world questions on the Internet.
