    Without cynicism, this question is impossible to answer. What is great for me won't be great for you.

    There simply is no "best" O/U shotgun. There are many very good guns.

    IMO, Fabbri is the best O/U money can buy, but it's not for everyone, especially not for competition shooters.

    The best "practical" O/U, especially for heavy competition shooting is Perazzi MX-8. I say this with good confidence because most winners in the Olympics agreed.

    Sluggo,,,,based upon normal criteria,,,,i.e. best bang for the buck, pointability, reliability, resale value, customer service,,,,the "normal" criteria looked for in a shotgun....

    The best over and under, or double for that matter does not boil down to brand! All of you that are proud can get defensive, however, the weather defines the firearm on this particular question. Winter, a double with extractors, Spring through Fall, ejectors. Anyone who argues with that statement has never hunted, or spent several hours in subzero temps trap shooting(without removing all oil to prevent sticking). Now, you can narrow by brand and make a decision without favor to one gun.

    That's not my criteria. As I said, it's a rediculous question as originally posted...

    Slugo. Less ridiculous than you putting photos of pistols on a trapshooting web site.

    I can just see all those K-80 shooters "trading up" to a Cynergy. Thanks, I almost wasted my money of a Kreighoff.

    I have to agree with Barry. I have an MX-8 & a 682 Beretta & although it is a solid gun & good shooter, I can't see rating it as #1 & leaving MX-8 off the list unless base price is the main criteria. I also think that the Cynergy at #4 is a reach. John

    I agree all of them are fine guns, as to the order well thats all personal preferences. But my goodness that stick on cheek piece on that Cynergy, dang must have used duck tape and foam on th p&k guns.

    The Perazzi MX 8 receiver has been around since 68.
    Definately set a standard.
    Need a good allowance to be able to discuss this subject.
