    Been searching the web, but am not finding a single shot .20 that comes with a full choke from the factory.

    Anyone know of one?

    Stoeger.....for what purpose? An occasional trip to the range? - It should be OK. For serious clays, or hunting, or SD? You might want to expand your list of possibilities for something a little more reliable

    The Stoeger 20" and 24" side-by-sides are solid basic guns. They are quite durable, and are very popular for Cowboy Action Shooting events, due to their reliability and relatively low cost.

    While the net is helpful the best way to find single shots in my opinion is to go to gunshops, yard sales, and estates sales. You might be surprised at how many older single shots may be out there. You may even get a good deal at one of these sales. Some of these used guns are just as good as a new one if not better.

    ill second black knights opinion. but it seems 12 ga and even 16 ga are easier to find in single shots than 20 ga but not impossible. if you are looking for a farmstead varmint gun or even a youth turkey gun you mite check out the older bolt action shotguns as well. there are lots of them in 20 ga out there.mostly full choke also.
