Thread: Inexpensive Singles & doubles?

  1. #1

    Inexpensive Singles & doubles?

    There aren't new NEF Singleshot gauges being made anymore correct?

    Anything on new market roughly comparable?

    You can get two singles for about same $ as any double right?

    The Turkish copies of the Beretta folding single-shot are ideal for what you want. Sold under various private labels, Hatfield, etc. About $150.

    At the Charles Daley site the specs indicate the 12 ga model's weight as "2.3". Think that's right????

    Probably kilograms. That would put it right around 5 pounds which seems about right.

    I haven’t seen those Charles Daly singles before. Those look handy. And with them being a folding type, it might be useful to get one and have the barrel and LOP cut for travel. Wouldn’t be a bad hotel gun/animal euthanasia/pest control/boarder repellent tool.

    I’ve been keeping my eyes on used racks at gun shops for an H&R or NEF 12 gauge for several months without seeing any. I have a 16 I bought new about 1984 and a 20 I got used over ten years ago.

    Henry shows single shots on their site.

    MSRP is NOT cheap though.

    Savage also has singles that look like the old H&R's for around $200 MSRP.

    From the youtube and website review I linked https://www.huntinggearguy.com/shotg...hotgun-review/ above:

    Specs:

    Comes chambered in .410, 20 gauge, and 12 gauge

    .410 with 14″ barrel: 4.22lbs
    20 gauge with 26″ barrel: 5.17 lbs
    12 gauge with 20″ barrel: 4.96lbs

    No rib on the barrel

    Use Beretta/Benelli Mobil chokes

    Plastic buttpad

    Steel sling studs (nice to see on a cheap shotgun like this)

    Cheek riser on both sides

    Cross bolt safety

    Trigger weight: ~7lbs
    I wouldn't want to shoot the 12 with any full power loads at this point in life

    I was thinking the Fiocchi 9 pellet No 1 buckshot for defense with the 12

    But I was also interested in the 410 since these come with choke tubes even in 410. So for a camp/car/ATV/bushplane survival gun it might be useful.

    The 410 with OOO buckshot loads for defense, birdshot for small game gathering (thinking survival not wingshooting), even the little 110 grain 410 slug might(?) useful for some niche in that situation.

    Quick question, where do you draw the line between inexpensive/expensive?

    There are a lot of older, solid SXS guns that the upper crust won't consider, but are very reliable guns.
    Of course they are more than 150 bucks.
