I found a CZ All American Trap Combo Churchill at my local Cabela's and I am trying to find information on them. I cannot find any official CZ documentation about the Churchill model, nor have I found anything out on the internet about this model. The thing that concerns me is that I can but a CZ All American Trap Combo for $3000 but this Churchill model has upgraded wood and an adjustable comb that the basic model does not, however the Churchill is only $2000. Not sure if I'm about to buy something I shouldn't or if I found a steal? My local CZ dealer said he has never heard of it before either.

Thanks!

I found one exactly as you described on Gunbroker. Listed for $2899.99 but got no bids, auction ended in November & item was relisted. Nice looking gun. It was the CZ all-American Churchill combo so it for sure was produced at one time. Not sure if this helps much but there you go! Colonel

It was item # 595519491

CZ-USA makes some quality guns for the price. Go to a big Benchrest competition sometime. CZ's are all over the place competing with Anschutz in the sporter/factory models. Extremely accurate and well made. If their shotguns are anything close to their rifles in quality their going to sell a lot of them at that price point.

Spend your money on a Browning or Beretta combo, price will be about the same and you'll be WAY ahead of the game.
I agree with Skeetman. The CZ is probably made in Turkey.
Spend your money on a known quantity. There are a lot of nice Beretta's, Browning's, Perazzi's, etc. for that money and you know what your getting. There is a beautiful Beretta combo in the classifieds right now for $3,000.
Listen to these guys...they are giving you good advice.

I have two of their rifles..........a 527 in 221 fireball & a 452 .22 rimfire..................both absolute tack drivers! I have never owned one of their shotguns but the ones that I have shouldered don't impress.

how many "All Americans" are shooting CZ shotguns? The answer to that question will tell you allot about the question you asked about purchasing the combo.

Keep in mind some gunsmiths won't even look at the lesser quality guns. I have a Franchi o/u that I wanted the trigger pull lightened on and my local gunsmith wouldn't look at it, he said it was a crude design and the inner workings were made out of soft cheap metal. The trigger pull is 4.5 lb. on the bottom barrel and 4 lb. on the top.

Do a search for the answer and you know what will happen? It will be a waste of time. You're not going to find any All Americans competing with CZ shotguns.

Churchill is/was a high dollar English Best gun. Last I heard Kastner out of Harrisburg, PA had bought rights to the name, and others, and were importing Churchill shotguns that would make you cringe. Ok for the field but a single trap competition is gonna destroy the thing.
