I am new to the "shotgunning" world...

I have a Remington 870 Express and an old "break-action" .410 that I got from my grandfather.

I was looking at the prices on some of these firearms and was shocked to discover the O/U are generally more expensive than all other guns.

IMHO this does not make much sense. The O/U shotguns act with a pretty simple "break-action" and allow the user to load 2 shells. The user fires 2x, then must "break" the gun and reload again. Pretty BASIC...

On the other hand...a SEMI-Auto Shotgun has tons of moving parts and appears to be infinately more complex. I would *think* that this would drive the $$$ on these up...but it does not.

Could someone enlighten me?

Thanks!

Thanks Sander...

Most of that makes sense to me...

I would not mind a manufacturer skipping the "detailed" engraving and "fancy" wooden stocks. I personally don't care too much about looks...just give me a gun that fires well all the time and I'd be happy.

Plus I think there is some kind of agreement with all the makers..."I'll keep my prices high if you do!" <grin> :mrgreen:

If you are interested in function, not asthetics, NEF is your company! Goes bang just as loud as the rest of them!! Just not a lot of money wasted on looks!!

I looked at the site...but I could not find any O/U...

Great prices on what I did see though... :D
