    are now available on a very limited basis. Exact same duplicate as the original 12 gauge version that was discontinued over a dozen years ago. Available in 12/20/28/410 with the same features and accessories as the original; Hi-post target rib, dual white bead sights (none of that Hi-Viz fluorescent crap) 28/30 and 32" barrel lengths, and Invector Plus flush cut chokes in IC/Mod. Classic!

    I just received a new 20 gauge version with 32" barrels to sit along side of my 1996 12 gauge gun!! Pictures later... :)

    This could be really bad news for my wallet!!! This was one on my all time favorite shotguns. I could just hammer targets in trap, skeet and sporting clays with this and thought I needed an XT instead.

    I looked at GU website and did not see them. I would be really interested is seeing some pics of your new 20ga.

    check my post above. I made a mistake, the gun is a Special Sporting Clays, not a Lightning Sporting Clays. Brain farts, sorry. I'll take some pics tomorrow and post them. The gun is fabulous...

    for Oldgoat, yes the gun barrels are ported, just like the original, with twin white sight beads and all, and flush cut Invector Plus choke tubes too... :)

    Do the new ones (12 & 20 ga.) have 3" chambers like the old ones? Thanks for info re: the porting. Best Regards and enjoy your new target crusher. Ed

    originally 2-3/4" on all the Special Sporting Clays. The Lightning Sporting Clays had 3" chambers. The newly released Special Sporting Clays is 2-3/4" only, just like the original...

    The good news about these guns is that you can get 20--28 and 410 with 32 inch barrels!!
