Picks of the Litter
Among the new 20s I've shot lately, the SIGArms Aurora TR20U stands out as my favorite. At 61/4 pounds, it's light enough to carry and heavy enough to shoot well. Its case-hardened receiver and straight-grip, Schnabel-forearm lines ooze Continental class, and at $1,800 it's a tremendous amount of gun for the money. Beretta's Whitewing lists for around $1,300, weighs under 6 pounds, and except for the sticky safety common to several Berettas I've handled, is an absolute delight.
