It's a pump but the Ithaca Ultra featherlight if you can find one is pretty dang light.
Right at 5 lbs. if my memory is correct.

My favorite is my 686 1 - 20 ga 26” Field. In the low 6# but balances so well you do not notice carrying it all day. Use it for grouse & woodcock with open chokes, and pheasant with tighter chokes.

Find a 625 Feather at 5-1/2 lbs. I used my 625 three barrel set until I switched to SxS shotguns, and it was a pleasure to carry.

If you like or don't mind older guns, then a Remington Model 17 20 gauge, plain barrel 28 inch is/was the lightest all steel pump gun I know of.

Mossberg, Baikal, Tri-Star(Cabela's) Stoger all arount $400
to $450. Not all that great looking, but they shoot.

Phased1,

I picked up a Savage/Stevens 555, 28 gauge which is extremely light for a modern gun. Mine shoots really well, I use it for gun dog training most all the time. You might want to check one out for yourself, if you are serious about acquiring a very light shotgun.

I like my Caesar Guerinis 20g Magnus lightweights, 26" is my favourite and most successful. They are all around 5.5 lbs.
However, I have Stevens 555 in 20g and 12g and these are what i use when it is raining, muddy or on the UTV. They are 1/10th the price of my Guerinis but shoot the same. They do not have the quality and are not family heirlooms but they are an amazing gun for their price. They are also about 5.5 lbs.

GunStock,

Definitely no way to compare the entry level 555 Stevens/Savage 28 O/U to a fine CG 28 gauge gun, the CG 28 is so much nicer and much better made, however the purchaser pays for that quality. As you say they both get the job done while shooting however.

I’m not an automatic fan but I got a Stoeger 3020 (20 gauge) last year. About 5lbs.-9oz. & around $500.00. It carries well with or without a sling and so far has been reliable.

Hi,

Can you guys please steer me in the right direction?
I'm looking for a very light weight shotgun to use for grouse & pheasant.
I assume 20 gauge and 26" barrels are needed to be light...
I'd prefer an O/U just because that's what I'm used to but would certainly consider a semi auto if it was lighter.
I spend hours/miles hiking the forest (mountains) for grouse without a dog and hours in more open terrain for pheasants usually with a dog, and a lighter gun would much appreciated at the end of the day.
Hopefully I could also go longer/farther with something lighter than the 8lb O/U my old bones are currently hauling around.
Thanks for your advice and your time!


If you can find a used Beretta BL3, I had a 20 ga, with 26" barrels that weighed 5.5 lbs. It kicked like a mule, but you never notice it when a bird goes up :)
