    Recommend O/U Shotgun Under 45K

    Last night i was wandering into the gun market here in Hyderabad. after reading a lot of great stuff from experts on the forum. i have a range of maximum 45 k and i'd prefer to buy an o/u. but all the o/u i saw here started from 60k. for 62k i was getting optima o/u made by turkey. baikal o/u was for 68 without selector. i also saw i feather weight clone of spanish double barrel SXS for 26k. it had beautiful engraving, and fine stock it was 12 gauge and it was really feather weight but it was made in pakistan that made me reluctant. on the other hand the gun that suited me was a spanish made Zabala 16 gauge SXS for 45k asking price. the gun apparently was in great condition. can big guns like 12gauge or bluff or anyoother shade some light to help this amateur before he spends a fortune and buys something worthless...

    Baikal,, SxS is 50K here in Karachi, and I think O/U is also of the same price. I would suggest you go to a Baikal by adding 5K to ur Budget. You can also get a Baikal Semi-auto mp153 at 50K, Choice is yours. You can get a Hatson Escort Semi-Auto at around 43K with 28" Barrel.

    Welcome to forum dude. now moving on to issue at hand. well....... first bro u gotta tell us the intended purpose of the shotgun. that is hunting (what kind/type) or sports (skeet/trap) or both and if both then which one has higher probablility. only then can move forward in a proper direction.

    bhah do not buy guns from hyd they tell very high prices like akkar is of 26 to 28 in khi but in hyd they tell u 30 to 32

    other as u r in hyd try to find a good o/u in used it would be cheep
    but why to buy o/u

    why not pump or semi auto


    bottom line buy weapons from khi as there is 8000 difrence in price
    good luck

    i dont think that 16 gauge will be a good choice.even if 16 gauge cartriges are available in sindh the prices must be heigher as compared to 12 gauge.in peshawar 16 gauge cartriges are not available at all.

    Thanks for the consideration of replying brothers... my intended purpose of buying a shotgun is hunting. and mostly either partridge, quail or dove hunt. maybe once in while would i get a chance to hunt on lakes. that was the reply to 12gauge.
    now moving to the reply for mig. Mig all the baikals that i saw here were like of 65k average and i m talking about O/Us. Never got to see MP153. and it costs 50k then one might consider of buying it for sure by waiting another month. And i m indeed flabbergasted to listen the price of hatsan escort semi automatic that you have quoted to be 43k. like thats great.
    For Ali baba, bro are you talking about the akkar camo? the one that comes with collapsible butt stock? if so then it is available here for 26k. (its a pump).
    Well for masoodkhan. one of the arm stores here quoted to me the price of 12 gauge # 4 at Rs 1250 and said its not available at all except for SG shots. and he was quoting Rs 1300 for 16 gauge shots. but to my pleasure i found out that 12 gauge cartridges are available at around Rs 1000 a box.
    one more thing i m getting an old spanish double barrel a non ejector. dont remember the company name. its very sparingly used according to an arms store owner whom i showed. the asking price is 33k and it is 12 gauge.

    does the gun fit you nicely?what is the length of barrels?usually 28 inches barrels are preferred for all types of shooting.also keep in mind that weight of the gun is important depending on the type/nature of shooting.

    well; i was of view that the prices must be on lower side in Hyderabad and interior sindh, but here i can see the springing prices.

    2nd hand guns are more caustly in sind people purchase from lahore,faisalabad ,sargodha and sold on high prices reason not conform i thing hunters in sind increasing day by day.

    Thing is brothers that there're limited shops here in hyd where you get to purchase these weapons. For international brands like Beretta etc. I think there's only two shops namely Sind Armoury and Saifuddin Ghulam Ali and Sons. Anyone interested in buying english bespoke guns like H&H, Boss and Co, WWGReener, or even Aya, Sind Armoury is the place. These guys however are a real ripp-off ... :p

    Regards.

    Yes thats true not much for choice of shops in hyderabad. Sindh arms rates are quite higher than everyone in the market. but atleast you know that they might rip you but they dont stab in you back by selling clones as reals or any sort of messy business. Friends i have been seeing the website of Daudsons can anyone very kindly tell me the prices of there double barrels? i.e. DSA royal, DSA regal and DSA Super Deluxe respectively. the guns seem to be of great finish in pics atleast. and if anyone can share first hands on experience that would also be really worthwhile

    ALI BABA i have in the past had a very bitter experience of dealing with mehran armory. the guy is simply not true to his word. and yes sindh armory has high prices they even sell new guns for a difference of more than 2 - 3k atleast. the other choices can be either fida hussain or saifuddin ghulam ali and sons. what do u say ?

    Does anyone know of availability of SEMI-AUTO Hatsan Escort Aimguard, Tomahawk SA 1800, shotguns, prices, etc, in Lahore/ Isl division? Below is the SA 1800:


    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage, than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

    Sir I need a shotgun for hunting small to medium game.. (Rabbits, Teelowr, Ducks etc). I already have a turkish 7+1 semi auto single barrel shotgun, that is very sensitive to shot loads... It is manufactured by a company called "armed". I want to sell that and get a proper hunting shotgun. My range is 70k max. Please could you suggest what my options are? thanks bro :)

    Virk brother: Please don't step in every thread regarding selling of your shotgun..this is not the proper thread you are posting in.. go to market place and take permission from Admin/Mods and then proceed accordingly.

    Apalo. Brother, with Due Respect. Use SHOTGUN instead of shoRt gun

    Anaglyphical Bro.
    After knowing your requirements
    i am telling you before hand that 12gauge bro will suggest you increase a tiny budget and get Baikal semi auto mp-153 maybe u have to add 5k more in your budget
    and if u r O/U freak than baikal O/U is also around your current budget maybe u have to add 7 or 8 k more.

    i am telling Peshawar's market price
    Baikal mp-153 48k
    Baikal O/U izh-27 50-55 stock and some other features makes that difference
    like in a one O/U Selector is in trigger slightly push the trigger NOT PULL and change shot sequence
    the other one have selector in the safety lock...
    My life my rules...
