    What is the advantage of a un-single over a O/U when shooting singles or HCP?

    For two eyed shooters, it seems a little easier to see around the barrel.

    Besides, they look cool.

    Easier to see around barrel = higher hold = less movement to bird.

    Softer perceived recoil due to it being lower through the gun to shoulder.

    ... less weight, better heat dissipation, probably has a fully adjustable rib...

    Makes it a lot easier to see your misses.

    A lot less felt recoil. My CG Un-Single is very soft shooting.
    The sight picture to me is great, mount the gun and look at the bird. They break!
    Some of my friends look to much at the barrel. I have a top single and my CG Un-Single. Shoot the Un-Single so much better.
    I think you should try them both and see what your eye prefers.

    International Skeet shooters use a very high rib, the explanation being they can see the fast moving targets quicker without the barrel obscuring their vision.

    Some folks need time to get used to shooting the Unsingle. I loved it the first time I shot one, have had several, and have another one on the way. Found out I really want one to shoot at Caps.

    Many can be weighted for balance and/or recoil reduction. :^)

    Nothing negative to say about it. Seems to be the ticket for the back yard.

    It's something different. I just shot my newly aquired original condition 1972 BT-99 with a release trigger last night. Shot a 24, not counting the bird I missed because I forgot to set the trigger. Normal gun is a KS-5 Special w/o release. It is considered a mid-barrel gun, but does the same thing when I do my part the same. I have to admit that my shoulder is sore today, because of the weight difference of two pounds. Jon

    RECOIL! SHOOTING A BOTTOM OR LOWER BARREL KICKS LESS! When making a barrel longer for most shooters a 34" O/U would make the gun to heavy as well.

    Your shoulder does not lie! If you want to be technical about it it has the same recoil but it is directed by different vector forces and absorbed in a different manner.
