Be a little more specific with your questions and you will have more focussed replies to your querry. Please do define the purpose, ie, upland / wing shooting or water fowling.

I think the only two NIB SxS guns available nowadays are Baikal (if it is still available with some dealer) and the local made guns. Other option would be to buy a used one.

If you find a good maker, you can get a very decent locally made SxS. Few guys in darra specialize in making copies of Webley & Scott, James Purdey and Holland & Holland. They are really very nice guns with full engraving and nice finish, far better than many imported guns. They will be in the range of 45-60 k but would look worth more than that. Would perform reasonably well too. Another option in local is DSA who make very high quality SxS. They will be way beyond your budget (300k to 450k). But those are very well made classic shotguns. Hope it helps.

I hope there wont be another thread regarding a recommendation about a Semi-Auto or Pump Action ....

Just on the lighter side ...


Like KBW said, there are a lot of options, both local and imported, matters on the purpose you require it for !!

You can also find a used one, or DSA and Khyber Arms also make reasonably well SxS. Besdies there is the darra options if you don't want to go for a Russian/Turkish.

+1 KBW: UNLESS you tell the exact reason why you want a SxS the exact option cannot be pointed. Shotguns are a different thing altogether. Upland, waterfowl or skeet -- all guns have certain features and are preferred for that.

The Baikal may be available at Pioneer arms at around 65-68 k. O/U Turkish fibre stock touching 78k mark, slightly used (200 - 400 rounds) can come at 70k.
Hungarian SxS can be had for around 80 used used but would not prefer it though it is a ver nice gun. They were imported LONG time ago and are mostly in very used yet seemingly good condition. French Fabarms SxS are around 60k but also very old imports and in average condition. The average condition is such that makes the gun useable but not preferred by many. For the older imports you need to have someone really good who knows SHOTGUNS "Very well". UNLIKE rifles, selecting a used shotgun is a very different thing. Most important factor is looking at the choke of barrels. Left one is almost always a more choked one then right one and in most English left is full choke and right is slightly less (modified or improved modified level)

There are some darra makes at 50k available, they are excellent guns. I have seen some that anyone can pass as original English gun and they shoot the same.

BTW: There is one English shotgun coming for sale a 32" SxS non ejector, best for Waterfowl. It will reach me tomorrow afternoon. Will post the pics in WTS thread section and will update you on the availability of darra on Monday.
