    I have been hearing about Tony DeSimone’s TS-2000 trap guns and their being a carbon copy of the Silver Seitz.

    Does anybody have any knowledge of these guns or experience with them?

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    haven't shot one, they come up like a Seitz but feel lighter.

    A TS-2000 is the ONE of the Best Single barrel shotguns on the Market - just my Opinion. I Own a 34" Full choke fixed Rib TS-2000 With a GREAT Release Trigger that will Grind targets. Lube it a Little and go shoot--Very little upkeep and VERY light recoil And more affordable than a Seitz. JMO Joe Whitehurst joe90t

    The only reason these aren't all over the place is a lack of marketing. They are wonderful guns.

    Just a thought, see lots of Seitz's with recoil devices. If this gun is lighter than a Seitz it should be a pounder.

    Phil, i have shot (4) TS-2000's and NONE of them Had much recoil, even with Nitro 27 Remington shells. I have spoken to (2) other people that shoot TS-2000's and they agree They have very little Recoil. Just Saying!!!!!!!!!!!! joe90t

    One of the most important things in taming recoil of any gun is the FIT. Marc

    The heavier the gun, even less felt recoil is detected. With that same gun, a properly fitted to you stock makes felt recoil even less!! To go a step further, my P gun (heavy) with the ProSoft stock has all those features wrapped into one unit!! Without it I'd have to quit shooting competitive targets due to neck/back problems!

    Tony's TS-2000 is a dandy gun and can be made heavier and fitted too at a much reduced price!! What's not to love about such a great gun?

    They had some problems with the triggers at one time, I sure that has been corrected over time ... I have never seen one with bad wood on it the fitting is really good and tight ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Shop around because the resale value is poor.

    Don't know about the rest of you, I've never bought a gun based on resale value. I have bought guns, plenty of them if they were a good value. TS-2000's are good values and should command more than what the market is willing to pay for a used rendition, this can be said for a number of other brands as well. The flip side are the brands who hold an abnormally high resale value compared guns of the same quality, sometimes you can pay more and get less........ The TS-2000 is not one of these.
