I have a Remington/Baikal Spartan 310. I like it. If you check some other forums you will see it will have somewhat mixed reviews: those that like it will say so, those who don't like it just don't dislike it they hate it and anyone that has one... and their children. Take what some say with a grain of salt. It would depend on what you will use it for: will it stand up to 1000's of rounds a month of clay shooting, I don't know. I do know it worked well for me this year for ducks/geese with 100's of rounds.jrockncash said:Not and O/U guy but try the spartan. See if it suits your needs then go from there.
Limiting yourself to a $500 pricetag? A Red Label is not a $500 gun. :hammer:don taylor said:There are a lot of great O/U's but your limiting yourself to the entry level guns with a $500 price tag. Previous poster is right when he says don't handle a gun that is out of your price range. You won't want to put it down. My new layaway is a Browning Citori 31/2 mag in Max-4. I own a Franchi falconet too. Best upland game gun I've ever swung. My best advice is to look at several different examples of the same gun. Fit and finish can vary greatly and you can usually find one that's better than the rest.
