I want to buy a new side by side 12 ga 28''
I will used it a bit for hunting and as a fourth gun for fun shooting clays: maybe 1000 rds/year

I want something reliable and good quality, hoping they last some time before going to the gunsmith (and since parts are not easily available ....)

I looked at huglu, churchill and armsan

what would you recommend ?

Thanks for taking the time to answer

For intended use, the Bobwhite model, Huglu made CZ gun would be the budget choice, whereas for a higher quality, better finished gun, an AKUS made SBE12 would be the way to go.

I like the Dickenson and SKB, though it appears that SKB has elimintated part of the SxS line, but will be bringing out new ones. I also like the CZ Sharptail.

CDNN has 12 ga Dickinson Prestige True sidelock SXS's for $2899.99 for the 28" or $2499.99 for the 30" barrels. I purchased a 30" barrel Prestige last year and really like it a lot. I intend to use it for skeet, 5 stand and sporting clays when this pandemic crap is over, but so far have only used it with my wobble trap. I had a leather covered Decelerator pad put on, as it came with a checkered wooden butt. It is a lot of gun for that price.
