    Most rugged and long lasting to me would be Browning Superposed. Not claiming it to be the best, but based on the OP's original question, it would have to be in the discussion.

    Has anyone had any personal experience with the Franchi Renaissance Sporter O/U? The Sporter version of the Renaissance has a stainless steel receiver (unlike the alloy receiver of the field, etc. models), and the gun appears to offer a lot for the money...most can be bought new for $1700-1900.

    I handled one at a local dealer and was impressed, but I have no info regarding reliability, performance, etc. Franchi may have dropped this model out of their lineup, but they are still out there on dealer's shelves.

    I'm interested to see how the answers on this thread will differ from the ones on your other O/U thread of nearly the exact same subject?

    1st thread was asking what the "best" was. This thread is asking for most rugged. Really 2 different questions. But, since most Trapshooters consider Durability as a major component of value the answer is the same., so the question seems the same. As apposed to cars where one might consider a Ferrari the best car out there, but a Porsche might be the answer to most rugged.

    MX3, I think he was Looking for a complete gun...at under $2,000.00 which parts were you talking about. Even at give away prices..trigger $450.00 Reciever $1,000.00 Forend iron $600.00 O/U Barrels $1,500.00 and well used Wood Set $450.00 I think he's well over his Budget, Looks like 4k not under 2k.
    That's not to say that someone might not gift him one. Shoot Well..Shoot Often,
