      Question Savage 20 Gage - Would you buy?

      I found a local guy that is selling a Savage 22 Mag 20 Gage over and under shot gun for $300. I have not seen it, but he says that both barrels are in excellent condition and that it has a stainless receiver and a gold trigger.

      Can anyone vouch for the quality of this gun or price? I have been looking for an over under for trap, but everything seems to be in the $1,000 + price range, so I am a bit skeptical of this deal. Any other questions I should ask this guy. Thanks.

      I am a little confused. Is it the Savage 24, which has a rifle barrel (like .22 Mag) over a shotgun barrel? Such a gun is very unsuitable for trap. It's more of a wilderness survival gun than anything else.

      Mike, you are correct after further questioning the owner, it does have a rifle barrel. The owner really didn't know what it was. Back to the drawing board. Thanks for the help.

      Savage pump shotguns were never popular with the buying public or the military.
      The winchester model 12, remington 870, & the mossberg 500 have always been the most popular. At the present time, brownells stocks the most of everything shotgun related for the rem 870 & the mossberg 500.

      Check out the Stoeger Condors. Standard grade O/U for around $400. AA grades $600-$700. They seem to be gaining acceptance, but I don't have hands on info as to the quality. I have a Stoeger Coachgun and it has been trouble free so far.
