Tell him to try to locate Bakail shotguns. Turkish made, but very reliable. Tristar made my gun, Razzini, around 500, BUT shoots 3.5 inch. Spartan (the Bakail sold under a new name). Traditions shotguns, sometimes carried by Walmart. If I think about any more, I'll let ya know
I'm an O/U fan too.
Lord......let me be as good a hunter as my dog thinks I am....amen
