Are these guns any good? Thinking of getting a 20 for grouse and ducks.

I have a buddy that has one and loves it. I also know someone looking to sell one. Not to sure on the specifics but I know it has nice looking wood and engraving and comes with 2 sets of barrels 20 ga and 12 ga I know he likes the gun but got a browning o/u that he could not pass up. Let me know and I can get you ahold of the guy.

I had looked at the Silver Reserve at Gander Mountain a few months ago and liked the looks. I googled the gun and found some reviews not to my liking. Many of the reports were consistent in saying that the inside of the chamber tends to start rusting very soon, even with cleaning. There were also people who like the gun. I decided to go with a used Browning Citori to be safe.

I am a big fan. I picked one up as an entry level O/U and cant say anything bad about it. At $550.00 I can beat the tar out of it and it wont bother me too much. In fact the first thing I did when I got it home was scratch it with a key just to get it out of the way. I hunt thick cover for grouse and it was going to happen some day.

With a high end gun like a browning or some of the Italian o/u'ers I think I would spend more time on the trail to keep from scratching it.

But they are what they are. A good, well made, entry level gun. I dont regret getting mine, and have had a good expetience so far. I would like to find some after market choke tubes, but that is my only gripe.

My only recommendation would be to shoulder it, let it down shoulder it and if it fits ya and you like it go for it. I had a benelli pump, but bought it on name alone, when I realized I couldn't shoulder it, without it getting caught up under my armpit or caught in my jackets, I gave it to a friend with longer arms. My remingtons have a shorter stock than the benelli and fit me better, especially once you add a few layers of clothing.

i love mine and i to read reviews on the gun but once i went to scheels and they had a brand new one and a "used"one that someone had won and traded it in so it was 200 off the regular price so i got it the only thing i would tell you is if you buy it shoot it with all chokes as mine varies greatly between shooting lead and steel but once i figured it out it was deadly on pheasants

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
