Trap gun.

Looking for a good quality trap gun. I want to stick with a over and under and try to keep the price close to $1000 or less. I was looking into a ruger red label or a bt99. I am open to any suggestions.

I thought about doing that a while back. What I saw was out of that price range, which is why I did not pursue it any further. Apparently used ones can be pretty badly worn.

The new Ruger Red label might be worthwhile. Suggested price is about $1800--street price would be a bit less.

This one may not be specifically setup for trap competition, but the Belgian made Winchester 101s seem to get pretty good marks for quality in an O/U. And changeable chokes for whatever needed. I believe they are made in the Fabrique Nationale (FN) factory where a lot of the Brownings also came from.

They also seem to be selling around the 1K price range.


BTW, BT-99 is a single shot is it not? But it is a very good trap-specific gun with the high rib and such. You Only need single for trap unless you get into the doubles competitions.

I shot competitively for 4 years through high school and shot many trap guns/hunting shotguns/ over-unders, but after thousands upon thousands of rounds none felt better than my BT-99, yes most have 1500+ price ranges you can find one under 1000 and then throw a little more to get it customized. But no matter what anyone say, only you can tell what you like the best, so go out and grab a gun see if you can deal with the recoil and like the functionality and go from there. Best of luck!

Enjoy your red label though!

I work at a trap range and i see all the parazzi guns and the other high dollar guns. I can get a bt99 for 1100$ brand new but it is a single barrel and wasn't what I wanted. I think the ruger will be just fine.
