Does anyone have one or know someone who does? What do you think? Good guns? Is there a dealer around here that has more than just one or two to look at?

I am looking at getting the Hunter Mag O/U as a backup gun.

And yes I know the Browning makes a 3 1/2" O/U, but I personally do not like Brownings.

I have one. Camo, wood stock, mechanical trigger. Very decent gun for very little money. I gave either $400 or $500 for mine NIB to use as a "flyer gun" for dog stuff. A gun shop over in Slidell had several of them on a distributor special when I got mine. I know a couple other folks who got these guns from the same place and like them a lot.

Yes. It has extractors, not ejectors. Its basically a Ruger Red Label clone with that difference. I like it, and I am a reformed Beretta ASE 90/682 family O/U snob. :lol:

Thanks for the info guys. I will be getting the black one anyways unless I come across a good deal on a camo. And I will probably get it dipped either way.

The older O/U's were my Zabala Hermanos in Spain and were good guns. They are now imported from Turkey. I don't have one from the supplier in Turkey.

Scottsboro gun and pawn is where I got mine at 10 years ago (model Silver II). They had several in all gauges. They may still be a Tri-Star dealer.

Mine came with a camo dipped wood stock (MODB). I think they are synthetic now.
