    I don’t know anyone who has a Sharptail. I tripped over a review on YouTube and thought it might make a good shotgun for cowboy action shooting. We need a good quality hammerless single trigger double at a lower price point than the long-discontinued SKB 100/200s.

    I handled a 16 gauge Sharptail (not a coach gun) at a local store. It was heavier than I expected. More like a Browning BSS than an SKB.

    I've got the coachgun here on loan, appears all GO.
    I'll probably be buying it, was wondering about other Sharptail experiences.
    Thanks.

    Low cost and single trigger has ever been a cause for disappointment and doubling. Going back to the low cost Spanish doubles of the 50s and 60s, at the Sears Matador price point, were always a safer bet with a double trigger. CZ quality control is good, but these Huglu made Turkish guns are built to a price point and if you do the math, a sub-$1000 double has to be made pretty darn cheap.

    Huglu's done some good stuff in the past, and CZ's hammer coachgun was one of the best I've ever tried.
    Liking what I find on this hammerless, and the pricing isn't quite down into Chinese levels. :)

    I'm liking the monobloc, mechanical trigger, and coil springs.
    I specifically like that single trigger.

    If I do buy this one, the old Baikal will have to go. :)

    I was under the impression you had one doubling.

    The Turks can build very nice guns. I have two AKUS made sidelock guns that are comparable to similar lower grade AyA guns. However, when they have to build to a price point, something has to give. This is more frequent with The ultra low cost semis. But CZ seems to have managed the cost/quality paradigm well.

    Nevertheless, always safer to go double trigger with a low cost gun.

    My pet coachgun is an old Savage Stevens 311R.
    That one will never go, but I'm liking not having to fiddle with moving my finger around between triggers on this CZ.

    Don't really want to get up over a grand for a coachgun I wouldn't be using all that much.
