    Hello all

    I've got the itch to get a side by side coach gun with exposed hammers.

    I've been looking at the Century model and am looking for opinions from anyone with recent experience/ownership of one. I'm just wanting one for fun and it won't be getting a lot of rounds put through it. (I'm a retired guy with fibromyalgia and I don't shoot much anymore)

    Also looking at the Cimarron coach gun, but it is almost twice the price.

    Thanks in advance. -lc

    There was a post on here a few weeks or so ago and some said good and others said bad.

    The best thing that can be said about that Chinese-made coach gun is that it's cheap. (Less than $300, last time I checked.) I personally wouldn't want one.

    If you can find a used Russian Baikal (marketed as the Remington Spartan), they're better.

    The best exposed-hammer coach guns are made in Turkey. They run about $900.

    Also more recently marketed by USSG. Discontinued about 5ish years ago.

    I’m sure people have them and love them. There is no way though I would buy a SxS with exposed hammers in that price range. I don’t see how the barrels can be regulated even close at that price.

    Avoid. They are not well regulated and parts are impossible to find.

    Get a Baikal.

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback.

    I decided to go with a coach gun with non-exposed hammers, and picked up a Stoeger.

    I had one for several years until I traded it off. It was fine for the money. Only issue was the LH hammer screw liked to loosen on its own.

    I also have a Stoeger Coach. Very handy. I like the choked barrels as opposed to open bore. I went with Improved and Modified.

    I keep snap caps in it to relieve the springs.
