I’m not a huge fan of new guns. For some reason, few of them give me that “gotta have it” feeling. But for some reason, I do have soft spot for the CSMC 20 gauge Revelation OU.
I saw this double for the first time at the 2018 Safari Club Show and was impressed. Even though it’s has a very no-thrills look, its trim, color-case hardened action makes it stands out. And with a straight grip and upgraded deluxe walnut, it’s a handsome gun over-under.
But was is it good?
Shooting Sportsman’s Bruce Buck reviewed it and had this to say about it:
Connecticut Shotgun has done a heck of a job with the Revelation. It is nicely made, mechanically correct, flat-out gorgeous and priced very well.”
So I guess the answer is yes. Faults? Maybe its weight. But with 3″ chambers, this OU needs to be hefty to tame those nasty magnum loads
