    My top 5 would be:

    Under Rs. 25,000 = Daudsons Armory .12 Gauge Shotgun
    Rs. 25,000-40,000 = Anything Turkish (Viper, Germinica, Hatsan)
    Rs. 40,000-80,000 = FabArm SDASS
    Rs. 80,000-120,000 = Winchester Defender or Remington 870
    Rs. 120,000+ = Benelli M4 or Franchi SPAS

    of course one can also get used ESCORT which would come around 25,000/=, the pump is really good as compare to other local stuff, new one costs, i.,e. rs:30,000.

    M1 Garand can be found easily in Derra or I think International Arms in Islamabad has it. At least they used to quite some time back when I used to go there.

    I have, very good for the price. It can fire even those cartridges that are sometimes missed by repeaters. Good for HD, strong & rugged, good for under 35 meter hunting as the barrel is short for 50 meter shots specially with smaller pellet cartridges.

    I didn't go into detail for obvious reasons. It looks standard size shotgun because of fiber stock otherwise its barrel is less than 22" i.e. by any means not a hunting barrel length as the pellets tend to spread very quickly unable to create a good pattern beyond 35 meters. Only SG or #4 excel is effective after that due to larger grain size carrying more knockdown power. Injuring an animal or bird by shooting it from a longer distance is never recommended by the hunting community, it should be killed humanely for consumption or even otherwise. Most dry land birds, other than water inhabitants, are usually shot within 35-50 meters.

    As everything thing is made to serve a certain purpose, DSA pump-actions are primarily for HD & guards and they are good for that. Limited hunting with it is an additional advantage. Hope it clarifies.

    For hunting i guess double barrels are best suited so in this range a baikal over under or a side by side would do the job.

    Khilji: It depends what you'ere planning to hunt. If you're looking at waterfowl (ducks) or geese then a semi-auto is a good buy. Explore a Stoeger 2000. Its a good semi auto and a Benelli clone.

    If you're looking to hunt birds on land like teetar or batair then a Baikaal over under or side by side is a good choice for your budget. Its a bit heavy to carry on long shoots but good value for money.

    Hopefully, u aren planning any wild boar hunting witha shot gun--reserve that for rifles only. Better ethics!
