You said to yourself “I sure would like to pick up a nice OU for October.” Well, here are two, and they’re both up for auction now on Gunbroker.com. One’s a true “No Reserve” sale. The other is “No Reserve” with a $1200 starting bid. Both are great looking guns.
Here are the key features both share:
-Great looking wood
-Modern stock dimensions
Even though I have issues with Ruger’s 12g & 20g OUs, I love their 28 gauges. These shotguns are a joy to handle, reliable, and well made. I’m convinced they’ll be remembered as one of the best bird guns America has ever built.
