    Do 3200

    I'm dealing on a 3200 with 32" barrels. I've heard they can be a little heavy on recoil. True? Also, are they normally flat shooters?

    I don't find that the 3200s have excessive recoil but I think it depends on the fit of the stock to the shooter. The 3200s trap guns with straight stocks shoot about 60/40 for me and the monte carlos a little higher.

    They kick just the same as any other gun of the same weight.

    The one time I shot a 3200 for trap I didn't notice any more kick than any of my own guns I shot that day.

    I have a 4 barrel set. I never shoot the 12ga barrel because it will beat me over the course of the day.

    Rosey, the one I had shot just like my 90-t which was about 60/40. Not much recoil but im alittle bigger if you havent noticed. Broke my first 99 at the grand with it. I dont think you would be disappointed. Just make sure all the updayes are done or add app $500 to what your paying.

    It's all subjective. Try one, nobody can answer this question for you.

    The ones that I owned were a pleasure to shoot....I just couldn't shoot them well for whatever reason, so I sold them all.

    I don't know what they weigh, but I assume that varies too.

    I spent the day with one recently and found it to be pleasant shooting. The one that I sampled did fit me very well and it had a factory stock. The only mod was a Kickeeze pad had been fitted.

    I almost bought one, but reverted back to what I was familiar with and bought another Beretta O/U.

    My other concern is that it will shoot too flat, but an adjustable comb would handle that. However, I hate to see a bunch of rib. My current sporting/doubles gun shoots 80% at 28 yards.

    You won't get a 3200 to shoot that high unless you do something with the rib. The bottom barrel will shoot 70-30 with the trap hanger and still maintaining a figue 8 sight pattern. The top barrel will be a little flatter.
