The new Red Label comes in just under 8lbs with 30"BBL's so it is looking very good for a waterfowl gun, the open barrel design is better for a gun that get's wet often, when an O/U gets water between the side ribs bad things happen down the road
. All of the early reports say the new gun handles MUCH better than the old one the balance point has been moved back between the hands rather nose heavy like the old model. This great news for us! a quality O/U for $600-700.00 less than some of the Autos on the market
. They are going to sell a ton of them and I bet that price won't stay that low very long, if they do the other company's will be crying!
