AYA, Spanish clone of H & H sxs's.
I still have my 40 year old Stevens 311, it never fails me. But It's not for sale. If you ca find one or one of the Baikal "Stevens 411's" you should enjoy either.
When I bought mine I paid $125.95
I am too, go buy a nice one beat it up for a couple seasons, let it sit there most every day of the year and sell it to me for 75% off.
BRNOs made in the 1960s and 1970s are cheap as old chips for sidelock guns with double triggers. The workmanship is better the older you get, with less hand-fitting on the newer guns, but every one I have seen has been an absolute steal. Come to think of it, I have seen two, and I bought both of them. I've used one choked approximately improved modified and full on wild pheasants in Kansas the last two seasons to good effect. My "No. 2" has slightly more open chokes and is probably headed for the dove field.
I have a CZ Ringneck SXS that is not too expensive. You may want to buy a used SXS in good condition.
When you say, "good SxS" and then say, but not too expensive,...that is an oxymoron...no such critter. Good SxS means expensive.
I'm with you Sayfu,,,
Furthermore, no offense intended to anyone, but my idea of a good sxs is NOT a Stevens 311.
What i want is a sxs that is functional and reliable that i can hunt hard with and not worry about it failing on me, i dont need a 3000 dollar piece of art that i feel bad bringing into the woods, so in my sense of the word good i dont need and expensive sxs.
SXS can be expensive for quality guns. I have some older quality SXS guns that I rarely take to the field. I have been carrying a light SXS for upland game in a CZ Ringneck 20 gauge for the past 5 years. Works fine and good quality for the price.
CZ Ringneck single trigger +/- $900; CZ Bobwhite double trigger +/- $700. I don't know your age, but I couldn't afford quality SXS guns when I was young, I had to depend on hand-me-downs. A lower priced gun can be your truck gun of the future when you can afford to upgrade.
