    Anyone out there with some experience with a CZ semi-auto(besides Tom Knapp). I can pick one up cheap and wondered if it would cycle light loads well. Might be a good youth gun for the price.

    I won a 12 gauge.

    So far, so good. I shot it for one season of my company skeet league, just to break it in for hunting season. I shot light 1 ounce loads. I won't say it never had any jams, but they were few.

    True, its made in Turkey.

    True, there are better guns (and worse.)

    But if you can get one cheap, its not a horrible gun.

    Once CZ (a very reputable company) started having their shotguns made in Turkey, quality and reliability became major issues. john

    I know a guy who won one and I can pick it up for under $400 but if it won't feed with any reliability I will steer clear. This is the kind of feedback I'm looking for. Anyboby else have any experience?

    $400 might make a good deal for 4 of them! $400 will buy a used Remington 1100 if you're lucky at a gun show.

    The price of Autoloaders is out of sight these days that is for sure! I don't think you can say that all guns that come out of Turkey are junk...I know the Weatherby SA-08 have very good reputations and they come from Turkey..Don't know a thing about CZ's though..
