SKB 505 or 585 should be $1000-1200 not sure what your price range is? Funny thing about some of the C.S. 4. After a sickening amount of research, came home with a Steven’s 555 silver at Cabelas for just under 6 bills with a coupon. Barrel construction and stocks, however, are nearly identical.

I thought about trading a gun for one but i am done with low end doubles for a while.

eastbank. The Stevens 555 is light and handles fast, thanks to a lightweight aluminum receiver. My brother and I do quite a bit of wing shooting and when we saw the Stevens 555 on sale we snatched a couple.

For under $700 Stevens has outsourced the badge to a Turkish manufacturer. Regardless of individual preference, there are few impressive options in the world of Turkish-made O/Us that compete with these specimens. Thus, the overall weight comparison reflects the two model builds. Like others have said, fit and finish isn't great, the wood is very soft and dents/scratches very easily. Its silver receiver is laser engraved with ample filigree adornments.

The 1100 is hands-down the lightest in the recoil department, but also the heaviest of the three. So it's a great decorating item and a poor shooting tool. Drawback: The gun has noticeable recoil and is a tad front heavy, but not to the point where it interferes with good shooting.

All Rights Reserved, Battle of the Budgets: Stevens 555 vs. Tristar Trinity. They have a firing pin warning such that one is to watch and make sure the pins are retracted before closing the action. I recently acquired a Franchi AL 48 from an ailing friend. They are fun to shoot but heartbreaking to use afield sometimes. Stevens makes use of a more traditional gold front bead, while the Tristar Trinity is tipped with a red fiber optic front sight. Stevens 555- Heard good things, fits well, light. Leaning this way right now, or Tristar. Not sure now, but at least two 5s in the model desnigation. Post subject: Re: How good is the Stevens 555 o/u? A few names mentioned might have changed, but the basics are sound: cry when you buy,but laugh when it lasts. Tristar also builds a Trinity LT model that uses a lighter-weight aluminum alloy frame, but the alloy-framed LT does not come in a 16-gauge model. Get more:, © National Wild Turkey Federation. I compared this with images I could find of the Tristar Hunter EX (Kahn),Yildiz ME, and ATI Calvary shotguns I could find. That said, look and see what CZ has from Turkey. The Red Label's twin barrels give it more a tad more versatility with two different choke options. I just picked up a 555 ..... wanted to compare it with a Dickinson 28...Dickinson is beautiful gun, but I went with the Stevens for now....I was partial to the shorter barrels, but just might get the Dickinson too!!! Bonus: The Stevens 555 comes with five tubes (C, IC, M, IM and F) and also is available in a 20-gauge version weighing in at 5½ pounds with a 26-inch barrel. Try one of these three options to get the gun you desire without emptying your piggy bank. The Stevens 555 and 555E are available in .410 bore as well as 28-, 20-, 16-, and 12-gauges.

Excellent review!

Here again, one is not superior to the other, but rather, a personal preference.

Stay in the know. Among the company’s latest releases is the Stevens 555 over-under. It has a steel insert over the firing pin holes to reinforce the breech, and the sturdy extractor elevates spent cases high enough to allow quick, easy removal. Get more:

I bought a Yildez from Academy a while back. Over and under shotguns have long been a favorite among fans of the clay-target sports and those who hunt upland game.

I do think Savage is holding the manufacturer to higher tolerances. i just bought a browning xs skeet 20ga and the best i,ve shot at trap so far is 23-25 and the worst 19-25, i hope to shoot a 25-25 very soon if the clays games gods smile or look the other way.

It is, or was a 20 ga.

We buy them but don't expect them to hold up, how could they, they are ugly!
