Thread: Over under vs Side by side shotgun

  1. #1

    Over under vs Side by side shotgun

    AOA, i am not very fond of complex shotguns like pump action and semi auto, i like simple shotguns such as o/u and side by side, i have used only side by side, but i like o/u, Can you tell me which one is good for Hunting. Also mention cartridges good for birds and rabbits, I did hunting but like "Kiliwals" villagers. Dont give much attention to the basics

    Brother over under is best shotgun in my views and your budget is for Baikal o/u or Turkish o/u Italian guns are expensive.

    I am the biggest advocate for Semi autos. but cleaning them is a real problem. ONLY barrel takes me 10 minutes to clean and the rest is done in 10 minutes. Now the double barrel will have two barrels and cleaning both of them will require 20 minutes. what to do what to do....

    don't go for turkish semi auto any brand name, its a failure and dealers have piles of piles dead stock, prices are dropped down @ 40 K , those were 70+ k 2 years back. go for Baikal all the way if u need semi auto as well.

    Brother go for the Baikal dbl. It's a real workhorse. It will take abuse and some Killiwal handling. Besides with a fast disappearing game birds it's unethical hunting with repeating guns. And ofcourse there's this talk of a ban on repeaters for hunting. So buy ur double and enjoy.

    bhatti saab. I have the remington
    cleaning kit but it needs needs scrubbing. I first run the solvent soaked patch through the barrel then another one then a dry one it comes out dirty everytime. I don't stop till the white cloth comes out white.

    Bro u nailed it, Mehrabani, my main question was which one is good for hunting S*S or O/U, and what u say about Darrawal in S*S and O/U , i have one single barrel lever action.

    it's totally your choice. you can find o/u and Sxs in baikal.
    Side by side gives you more parallel coverage which is a very minute difference.
    but if you want to play skeet or trap then I'd recommend o/u. If it's only for hunting flip a coin and decide

    I've always sxs dbl and works fine for me. Both are fine for hunting. It's more a matter of personal preference and how a gun feels in your hands. As far as Darra Wals are concerned it's a hit or miss. In all likely hood the pattern will be poor and reliability unpredictable. Would avoid one.
