    Looking for a nice O/U to go Skeet & Sporting. I prefer a Browning XS/625, but I am open for ideas. I am not really partial to Beretta's since they all seem to have a very long LOP for me. Although if it's around 14.25" to the middle of the pad, I will consider.

    Basically let me know what you have and we'll talk. Use PM and include your email address in the PM.

    Thanks

    I have a Browning Citori White Lightning that would be great for that.

    PS - The XS Skeet, XS Special or XS Pro-Comp are most preferred in increasing order.

    5141, I want something choked.

    jm1079, I looked last night but didn't see the right combo or gun and price :) I am not paying for $2K for a plain XS Skeet.

    RunGun, sorry I was only looking for 12ga.

    You mean screw choked???? Most skeet guns are choked somewhere between .004 and .008 but the older ones.. like everything else was fixed choke.. My Perazzi skeetguns all have fixed chokes.. same for Beretta.. same for Krieghoff.. same for Browning.. If skeet was what you are shooting.. I'd look hard at the A-2..very well made gun.. Now.. if you are looking to shoot bunker or sporting clays and want a flat shooting gun.. screw chokes are useful..

    Sorry yes I meant screwed in chokes. I am basically a Trap shooter, but I need the O/U for random days at skeet or sporting with buddies. I need to do both, not just skeet. Don't need anything super fancy, but I really like the XS Special Hi-Rib and Pro-Comp models. Also tried the 625 in the store and it felt great, but those are still over $2K these days.

    I can't seem to find anything online about the FN A-2, can someone give me a link to some info an pictures.

    I think a quick call to Arts would be useful.. I think the FN A-2 was the Superpose as we know it.. Browning's are not my gun..but I think that's how I remember it.. A start would be.. does the forend come off.. or stay with the barrel..

    Have an interesting gun you might think about although it is 3k in price.
    Browning Broadway Pigeon Grade (Belgium mfg) 30", briley cut the chokes to .009 and .018 ( IC and light Mod) and then fitted 20,28, and 410 tubes (tubes serial numbered to the gun) in skeet chokes. When I shoot it I use the 20ga for the 12ga event in skeet, and usually it is about right in chokes for most sporting clay events with the 12ga chokeing. If you need to really get down on the stock you would likely want an adjustable comb done up, but it isn't nearly as high shooting as we have come to use in our more modern trap guns. Its a clean gun and the gun and tubes are in an appropritae Americase, tubes in the lid. Could do up some pic if interested. Regards,
    John Hancock

    I have a VERY nice SKB605 sporter. It was a safe queen and has 4 or 5 nicks on the bottom of the stock. Very nice wood and only has been shot maybe 1000 rounds.

    Verry tight and stiff. Choke tubes both barrels. Uses Winchokes or Invector for tubes.

    If you are interested, I'll send you some pictures. $1100.00 plus shipping

    Hi guys,
    Thanks a lot for the great offers, but I just don't need the full skeet sets with tubes and everything. Also I am not looking for a show piece, just a clean shooter. I am trying to decide whether to go for an older Belgian gun or one of the newer ones like and XS Special.

    Thanks

    VPR80,
    I have a 2008 30" Browning 625 Sporting Clays 12 gauge that I am willing to let go for no lower than $2,000. It has been shot very little (less than 1,000 rounds) and is just sitting in my safe taking up space. Send me an email and I will send you some pictures.
    Thanks,
    Ben
