    Hi all I'm in the marked for a new gun to be used in the field and to bust some clays,skeet sporting, and a few trap doubles, just for fun at the club not competition.
    The Winchester 101 field and the Beretta white onyx seem to fit the bill and deals are to be had just haven't found any real feedback.
    Anyone care to chime in?
    Thanks John

    Warning BigCat - the new 101's are not the same as the old 101's. The Japanese 101's are vastly superior if fit, finish, and materials. The new ones are at best so-so.

    There is a major difference between the old 101's and the Beretta - the Beretta uses a 'trunion' pivot, and the 101 uses a pin. The trunion design results in a lower and lighter action. Depends on you taste, but they have more than slightly different feels and mounts. The new 101's look just like the Beretta's (trunion with pins coming forward instead of a lump and bar), but not as nicely detailed and fit. However, they are servicable. (I wouldn't own one however).

    Thanks for the reply's... I got a look at the 101 and it just did not do it for me I was hoping for a little more out of a FN built gun.

    Big Cat,

    Would you be interested in my Weatherby, O/U, Orion, 12 gauge, 30 inch, 3 inch field gun with two chokes and non descript gun case? It was supposed to be my sporting clays gun, but I have yet to shoot sporting clays or doubles in trap. Go figure? I am looking at $950 shipped from my FFL to your FFL. Paypal is OK for an extra level of safety. Pictures upon request. I am having medical problems right now (right hip replaced) so my response time may be a tad slow. Response to this site with your email and will respond with pictures.

    True Blue and Diamond Hard,
    Harry in Pa.

    I have a friend who's selling his 20ga 101 on consignment at Great Lakes Sporting Arms. With the exception of a scratch on the stock and a few minor handling marks on the forearm, the gun is like new and has barely been used.
