    The title pretty much says it all. I am looking forward to a gun change. I am looking at 3 different guns. I shoot Sporting Clays & Flyers. I have always shot a higher POI so trap guns have always worked well for me. The 1st being a Caesar Guerini Summit Trap 32" overunder. The reason's I like this gun is 1st and foremost fit. I mount the gun and it is right there, this is rare for me as I am 6'2" and most guns take some fitting. Only fitting I see at this point is a little length?? I have not shot the Summit Trap, I did try a Summit Impact and smashed targets right out of the box, it fit well, the Trap just feels like it fits even better. I can pick this gun up for $4,000

    The next gun I am looking at is the Blaser Super Sport. I have not shot and or mounted one of these guns. I have however shot the trap model and liked it, it fit well and seemed to do the job. I have been hearing some good things about the Blaser and I can pick this gun up for $6,000

    3rd and final is a K-80 32" Sporter. I have shot a few K guns and loved them but they're super expensive for me. The gun I am looking at is like new for $8,000 this would be stretching the budget but I could make it work, it would be tuff though.

    I have shot a ton of guns my favorite being a 32" 3200 felt like a club in my hands but fantastic on targets and birds for me. I know that would make the K-80 more of the obvious choice it is just a lot of money. Will the Guerini hold up, is it a quality built shotgun?? Thanks

    Yes. I own a summit combo and love it. In terms of features , they are up there with the big players but without the price tag. I have put around 5-7K shells through it and it works great. Their customer service is excellent. You can call up their office and ask to speak to one of their gunsmiths. If the person is not available , they make it a point to return your call.

    I used to work P/T for a shop that was one of the first CG dealers in Md besides the the Importer...they have guns that were used for demo purposes that have been through pure hell and they are many seasons old now with many flats of all kinds of shells through them..at last check they still have had zero malfunctions and still tight...to me they are the best value in a serious sporting/trap gun out there..and if it did need service, the CG service is top flite...I think that they will eventually be as prized valuewise as the K's and P's...and it is the only gun I would move "up" to if I was so inclined to get out of my Browning Plus guns

    Love my CG MAGNUS, don't know why but the recoil is less than on any other gun I ever shot except my 1100.

    Absolutely it is worth it and it will hold up. I have over 28 thousand trouble free rounds through my Summit Trap Combo and it still feels like a new gun. IMHO the absolute best bang for the buck on the market today. Like you I love the old 3200s and shot them well BUT the K-80 does not feel or handle like one.

    WOW, thanks guys for all the replies. A lot of positive responses about the CG. The main reason I would go for the Guerini is pure fit. Like I said it just fits, I would need to lengthen it a little but other then that I would be good to go. Anyone out there had any issues with the Guerini?? What do you guys think of the recoil out of the trap models?? I have heard they have a little bit of Down pitch but that can be taken out?? Thanks

    birdogs, the reason I sold my 3200 is I would have to sink to much money into to it to get it where it needed to be. I needed to do the forearm update, get a custom stock put on it, get it choked and so on. By the time I was done with it I would be in it $2,500-$3,000 plus the cost of the gun. I would never see anything close to that out of it.

    The most important thing is the gun must fit or you will fight the hell out of it. I would shoot as many different guns before a finale decision is made. I used to own a Magnus combo and it was fine. I have since owned a Kolar Max T/A and now own a Blaser and while they are all good I have to say I am flat liking the Blaser. Just make sure the gun you choose fits you good.
    Good luck with your choice.

    Hey Bryce,
    Get the Caesar Guerini Summit Trap you won't regret it. Most people I know are shooting the 32" O/U better than any of the other configurations. I hope this helps you.

    Hit 'em hard,

    John

    Have 3 Guerini's and one of them I think I have over 15,000 through one of them -- the Magnus Combo. The others are in the many ???,000's. One thing is real apparent -- NO RECOIL when compared to my Beretta's, Winchesters and a few other brands.

    Its all about the confidence man. After you shoot for a while you will know what I am talking about. The blaser is very adjustable and can be fine tooned to your liking. There are to many things to mention. There are know better barrels or triggers than what come on them. If you have questions about them call Allems gun craft and ask them all about them. You will be pleasantly surprised.

    I have Guerini trap and sporting guns, and a Blaser sporting gun. With an adjustable comb, the Blaser is a special gun. CG is very good, but the Blaser is special...trigger, balance, handling, less felt recoil. Go for the adjustable rib & comb option on either gun.
