    I'm thinking of getting a lupara. I don't want to spend that much for one, but I still would like to get a good quality piece with exposed hammers. The CZ Hammer Coach looks perfect. It's beautiful and is just about what I am willing to spend.

    How's the quality of CZ's shotguns? I had a CZ 75B and that was a wonderful gun. I still have a CZ 452 Trainer and that rifle is a thing of beauty, both looks and performance wise. I don't want to assume that CZ's shotguns are as well made as their pistols and rifles though. I will only continue to look into the Hammer Coach if the quality is there, all my guns need to earn their keep.

    Thanks for the help.

    Do not confuse the quality of Czech made CZ rifle and pistols with that of the Turkish-made shotguns sold under their name - That's an apples to tuna fish comparison. Turkish-made Huglu's are suspect - quality currently is hit and miss, some get good ones, some do not

    That's what I was afraid of. It's a shame, the Hammer Coach is a good looking gun.

    I'm not saying to NOT buy one, only to make sure you give it a good going over. If you know someone who has one, shoot it, see how you like it. Besides mechanical problems, the biggest complaints have been a bout the triggers being horribly gritty and way too heavy - a good smith can rectify that usually. Parts breaking is another thing, but some folks have raved about CZ service.

    The problem is that I've never seen one in the local shops. I'd have to special order it, and I'm not going to do that if the quality is hit or miss.

    Go to shotgunworld.com and scroll all the way down to the I love my..... forums. There is one for CZ guns - ask them what they think. (The regular forums don't think much of them). Do a search on all of that forum and you'll get the good and the bad - should help make your decision
