Thinking about one for late season big geese.
Reliability?
Balance?
Etc?
There may not be any available in the country right now from what research I’ve done.

Those are about $200 over MSRP.

Then you should buy one at MSRP. Don't look now, but that is the way of the world right now. Don't know why anyone that has a bunch of Beretta Extrema Plus guns would want a 10 gauge but then that is not for me to understand.

It’s only money and if you want to play, you got to pay.

Goose season is over. Don’t need/want one till next fall.
Should be available later this year at better prices.

I chased geese with a Gold 10 for a few years, and never had any problems at all with the gun.

We run 4 Gold 10's for geese both here in the west and in Alberta /Sask ,Can.
they 're FAR BETTER than a 12 ga with 3 1/2's both in recoil and performance !
It's a good investment for a Goose Hunter....better if you reload for it !

What did you end up getting? New or Used?

I picked up a new Gold 10 this spring (28" barrel with MO Shadow Grass Habitat).

The gun has functioned perfectly so far with factory Federal Speed Shok, Black Cloud, and Winchester Drylok. I've also loaded up some 1 1/4 oz #6 steel loads using components and recipes from Precision Reloading and had some good success on clays.

I found that the factory choke tubes pattern very tightly with factory goose loads (BB, BBB, T). The Mod and IC chokes performed nearly the same across all shot sizes giving roughly 90% patterns in a 30" circle at 40 yds. A little tight for decoying geese IMO. I ended up buying a Trulock SK1 (.770) and that gave me better decoying patterns (90% in 30" at 35 yds and 100% in 27" at 25 yds). This way I should be set up for cooperative and wary geese. #2s from Federal and Winchester patterned a bit more open and should work very well for big mallards.

28” Gold camo. New.
They had a used one, but only $200 less and about 15 years old.

Buddy has been using a Gold 10 for geese and turkey for at least the last 25yrs. He had to replace the bolt buffer last summer because the original one for brittle with age, other than that it's been gtg.

I had the itch for one a couple years ago and found a shop that had two used ones with the wood and glossy finish for $700. Buddy told me that was high and to wait, now you can't find one and it'll cost way more than $700.

Gun had a horrible trigger.
Local gunsmith couldn’t fix it.
Sent to Rob Roberts. Got the trigger back and it would not recock.
Sent them the whole gun and they fixed it at N/C and paid for shipping both ways. Great customer service.
FINALLY, got to shoot it with a good trigger.
Shot it at one station at Sporting yesterday.
First shot a single=smoke
Second shot single=smoke
Next a report pair=smoke and more smoke!
Finally a true pair=smoke and smoke!
Six shots with 1 1/2 oz of steel was enough for one day. No shortage of recoil!
Should be a really nice goose gun! :D

I had a Gold Hunter 3.5” gun in the early 2000’s.
Had to be cleaned after EVERY use in order to function the next time.
Will the Gold 10 require this maintenance also??

Yeah, and possibly to the guys loading machines, 10 gauge shells don’t come in #8’s.
