    I am thinking of getting a gun to shoot doubles with this fall or winter, either a Browning Broadway or a Winchester 101. Tell me about these guns, price range, POI, etc.

    Thanks

    Of the ones that I shot:
    Both shoot flat
    Both kicked like a mule!
    Neither one fit me!

    Browning Man - There's always the possibility of getting a combo gun - SKB, Browning, etc. Advantage is the same stock fitting.

    Agree with Matt, why an older Browning or Winchester?

    Best,

    I agree with all the above. Winchester 101 and Broadway hasn't been made in years. For starts get a SKB or a Citori. You will see one or the other pop up on here! Like I said earlier, they shoot flat and kick. I bought a 3200 for doubles. It shot flat, and was out of production. Bad mistake on my part!

    See if you can find a Citori GTI. They were used on the Sporting Clays Courses and they have a BROADWAY width rib. New enough to get parts and should not be too expensive. I had one once and can kick my backside for ever letting it go.
    It was a 50/50 gun and very nice to shoot! If you find two, let me know! LOL

    Get the one that fits you & your pocketbook. I've won my state's PITA Doubles Championship for my class with my Broadway Browning which I bought for $2K in '02. I installed a mercury recoil reducer which did its job but altered the gun's balance. So I removed it & just had to get used to the recoil. A Kick eez pad helps.

    The "new" 101 Winchester is the Belgian Select. For the money, it is hard to beat!

    You may find a Select Trap on sale. They discontinued the model and changed the name. This Winchester impresses about everyone who shoots it.

    The GTI is also a fine gun for Dubs. My 30" Signature Model shoots about 80/20, but I have high cheekbones. It is NOT for sale! LOL

    I bought a wonderfully stocked 32" XT and shot it last weekend. It shoots top barrel, 100% high, and bottom barrel, about 80/20. Shooting top barrel first, I shot a 97 the first time I tried Dubs, a 98 off the 27 with the top barrel, and a 75 straight with the bottom barrel on the 16, and a 24/25 on Bunker with top barrel first.

    I think the gun fits!!!!!

    Whatever gun you look at, CHECK THE POI off a rest at 13 yards with both barrels before you buy the gun!
