    I have seen the cheap o/u threads. I see the maker lanber mentioned time to time. For people that have shot them can I get some reviews they seem to be in my price range. I am looking along there hunting line over there skeet line. And no I do not want a used browning or a beretta. Thanks for all the information.

    Lanbers are very well liked by those that own them. I have fired a couple, and the quality seems pretty good for the price. Honestly, in a hunting gun, most of the O/U's on the market would hold up fine. It is when you are expecting to use one for high volume target shooting that you will be let down. A Lanber or CZ would probably last many many years as an upland gun. Parts availability decades from now may be an issue though.

    Thats true.... Still, even hunting, when it comes to an O/U or S/S I'd rather have a top quality used gun than a medium quality new gun. Low quality O/U and S/S should be avoided at all costs...

    What's your budget here? I saw a few Franchi O/U's at the gun shop last week that were around $1000 new. I have no idea if they are built to a decent quality "undetermined the hood," but the fit and finish was miles above their Stoeger counterparts. They might be worth a look for you...

    243,

    I just looked at that burst barrel thread and that is almost certainly a bore obstruction and no reflection on Lanber.

    Lanber 12 ga ou

    I have thousands of rounds through it on the skeet and sporting clays fields. It is rock solid.

    Having been in the gun business off and on for 35 years I have seen "blown up" Brownings, Berettas, even a Parker or two among many others. There are usually good reasons for a catostrophic failure like the one illustrated that has nothing to do with poor materials or workmanship of the gun itself.

    I trust my Lanber and recommend it enthusiastically.

    Not all shotgun barrels are as strong as they could be. I am sure Lanber is a fine shotgun.

    Here in the US we depend on the manufacturing standards of the gun maker and their integrity to build safe firearms.

    In other country's they have "Proof Houses" that test every firearm made with high pressure loads to make sure the gun/barrels can with stand the operating pressures of everyday shells.

    That Lanber in the linked thread was most assuredly a bore obstruction - stuck wad, part of a previous hull or similar

    243winxb, do you realize that you are linking a staunch anti Firearm anti 2nd amendment rights organization for your quote, the VPC seeks to outlaw private ownership of all firearms??

    If you have to use qualifiers like "good gun for the money", keep looking. A used Browning, Beretta, or SKB are a better bet for just a little more money.

    I have had my Lamber 2087 for over 2 years with 100's of rounds through it with no problems at all. The CDNN blems are the way to go. Mine has a very small blemish in the bluing near the end of the upper barrel. Hardly noticeable.
