Hi, are there any of the cheaper 20g OUs that are better than others?

I'm looking for an inexpensive 20b for my son, probably with a junior stock, or cut down a bit for him.

Yildiz

Armsan

Revo

Huglu

KOFs

Or is it better to try and find a used Beretta/Browning/Miroku etc?

Any thoughts on these brands, especially any to avoid!

Thanks for any advice/experience.

I have a new kofs. Lovely gun for the money. Just a little stiff and a full stock. So is a little big for my 11 year old so then brought a second hand yildiz with a small stock and he’s getting on great with it. Both are a bit heavy as he’s a slight 11 year old but he’s hitting clays and loves to come to have his go on the training stand at the end.

My vote for a starter gun would be Armsan 20 or 28 bore semi-auto, with junior stock in the kit..my 28 bore was sweet to shoot for lad or dad, on clays and vermin..check the reviews ? Amazing price too...I`ve also used a Revo 20 bore o/u..too heavy for kids, Yildiz..around 6 lbs, works well, but very tight if new, like many Turkish guns in this price range ? we`re now using a Lincoln premier 20 bore ( 30 inch barrels) bought used from a dealer, with case , chokes etc, nicely ` run-in`, for £450 ish..perfect..maybe 28 inch bbls might suit your boy better , but these are great for the money..Italian made, and again, check reviews ? As always, handle the gun before you buy, and pattern to give your lad a clear picture of impact ! We started with fairly open chokes on clays to build confidence, now find I/C and Mod work fine on our sub gauges..hope this may help . Lincoln weighs just over 6 lbs, Armsan just under ?

Out of the two, which do you think is better made?

Had a look at  a Kofs today. Nice enough. Although I'm dubious about the longevity of the surfaces on the hinge joint?

The kofs I brought new but the yildiz is used. The latter is slightly better put together. But for the money the kofs is well worth it.
