Here’s a great bird gun. Beretta’s BL-line of OUs were imported into the US in the ’60s & ’70s by the Garcia Corporation. With various degrees of engraving and a touch better finishing, I think they’re a bit more refined the 686s. They can bought at better prices, too. This one is Gunbroker.com now.

James Woodward & Sons over-under shotguns are some of the finest doubles ever built. When patented in 1913 (four years after Boss’s OU), Woodwards’ version of a stack-barreled double was a lot things: lightweight, elegant, easy to load and put together, and built on a shallow action. But it wasn’t was perfected. That didn’t come later. In […]

I don’t know much about this maker, and I think the ignition system is based on an updated version of Dreyse’s needlefire patent. But I am 100% certain that it’s a beautiful gun.
