Good gun alert: 20g Sig Arms Aurora OU …

20 gauge Sig Arms "Aurora" TR 20 Over Under Shotgun
20 gauge Sig Arms “Aurora” TR 20 Over Under Shotgun

A great gun — at a great price! This 20 gauge OU has it all – 28″ barrels, a straight “English” grip, and a nice long LOP. It’s pretty light, too, at just 6lbs, 4ozs.

These over unders were built for Sig Arms by B. Rizzini, and they’re very reliable and trouble free. You could spend a lot more money and get a lot less gun.

Sig Arms "Aurora" Over Under Double Barrel Shotgun, 20 Gauge, 28"
Sig Arms “Aurora” Over Under Double Barrel Shotgun, 20 Gauge, 28″

There are two doubles I always recommend as all around “great guns”. The first is a Beretta 686 Onyx. The other is the O/U you see here.

The Aurora over under was made in Italy by B. Rizzini, and Sig Arms imported them for a while, first for L.L. Bean and then for themselves (or at least I think that was how it worked). Regardless, these shotguns are perfect upland doubles, and this one is priced very fairly. I bet it will be sold soon.

Another great bird gun: a 20g Sig Arms Aurora with 28″ barrels…

Here’s a great deal on a fantastic over-under. This gun was made in the early 2000s by Battista Rizzini for Sig Arms. It’s built on a proven action, and the single trigger is as reliable as any out there. With a straight grip, 28″ barrels, and choke tubes, it’s one gun that do it all.
