By and large, I don’t recommend inexpensive break-actions, for they’re often clunky, unreliable, and more trouble than they’re worth compared with a used name-brand O/U. CZ guns are the exception, and it’s little surprise that they’ve developed a reputation for being functional, reliable value shotguns. They are made by Huglu, one of Turkey’s better gunmakers, and there’s a service center in Kansas City. CZ’s new Drake is a bare-bones O/U at a price that will leave you plenty of money for shells and even a few rounds of pre-season sporting clays. As I mentioned, I prefer three-shot guns over break-actions for doves, but if I wanted an inexpensive dove O/U, I’d think hard about a Drake.
