    Hi giys, does anyone know about Huglu shotguns? I thought they just made affordable o/u's and sxs for hunting. I saw a add in Trap&Field the other day for a trap combo set for less than $1500. said it was 34/32 with adj. comb. sounds pretty cheap. so i just looked at the Huglu website, and the gun looks pretty good in the picture, of course the retail price is much higher. Anyway if there is someone here that knows about these things let me know. I'm in need of a gun don't have to be a combo set but does need to be 32" bbl. o/u. new or used but must be less than $1300. thanks, Rob

    I can't tell you anything about the trap guns ;however I own three Huglus, o/u's and shoot one for sporting clays and have shot trap with it as well and have had no problems at all.

    Huglu makes shotguns for CZ-USA.

    They're not bad guns.

    They (CZ-USA) just introduced a sporting clays model O/U. One of their local guys (CZ-USA is based near where I live) is a friend of mine. He has been shooting a prototype of their sporting clays model for a couple years.

    It is a very nice gun.

    If Huglu is doing as nice a job with their trap gun as they are doing for CZ for the CZ sporting clays gun, it may be a quality gun.

    My suggestion? You asked...

    Take your $1300 and find a good used Browning, or Miroku trap o/u and enjoy it for the remainder of your trapshootinglife....

    All things considered, BigM's advice is sound.

    I have a CZ 28 ga. SxS and am not impressed. Used Berettas and Brownings are MUCH nicer guns. Hard to beat a Browning superposed or Citori.

    Had a Huglu 28 gauge SXS. Both barrels shot 8" low at 30 yards. The right barrel shot to the right 1', the left barrels shot to the left 6" @ 25 yards.
    As far as I'm concerned they're are not worth it.

    I have worked on these guns and found the fir pins to be soft along with many parts inside. Buy one to hang on the wall but not for any type of competition.

    If there was ever a time when it was a buyers market for trap guns, this is it. You will get a lot in a quality used gun for $ 1,300, and know there are parts available and gunsmiths who can fix it.

    Ditto on what BIG M says... Original Ceska Zbrojovka(CZ) small arms - designed especially for Armed Forces and special units - are of good quality. Products made in Turkey by Huglu are junk. You'd be MUCH BETTER OFF with a used CITORI or BERETTA 680 SERIES O/U. John

    Dont worry, Huglu´s, particularly those built for Mark Dehann are great solid reliable guns for the money, those that propose you buy other brands dont know this, so why mind them? I have owned a U4 TRap OU for the past two years, it has 33" barrels and a RAD2 recoil system and love it.

    I have a DeHaan trap huglu. For the money it was worth it but as stated above the firing pins are soft as is the sear. I have had to replace both items numerous times. If you are buying one for the field fine but for trap buy a Browning. I have an XT for three years (new) with over 40,000 shells fired through it and have one broken extractor. The Huglu just didn't hold up.

    Remember"for the money",you get what you pay for.They are said to have soft lock parts and while ok for hunting will not stand up to continual use.Jack

    I have a Huglu and it shoots well. I did have to replace the firing pins. Get another gun but I would never get another Citori due to my last experience with one.

    Good move on the 3200 trap906, you will get alot of shooting out of that one.

    have to make a correction. My Browning XT had to get a replacement ejector not an extractor but you get the idea. You get what you pay for.
