I realize that this is mainly a tactical shotgun forum, but I have a question about Remington's Spartan shotguns. I know that they are built in Russia and that they are robust and very affordable. Anybody here try one/ handle one? comments....... I am looking for a double barrel 20ga for my wife.

+1 they fell and look like junk and handle even worse! I would look at a Stoger.

The Remington Spartan guns are just Baikals (formerly imported by EAA) with a new logo and a higher pricetag. They are much less of a value now, than they were at EAA's price point.

I use EAA Izh43KN Bounty hunter II in action shooting for two years. A pretty affordable s/s with exposed hammers and 20" barrels. Sure I would prefer to own genuine Greaner shotgun, but since here is no new s/s with hammers, 43KN is a good solution worth each penny of $250. I dont know if Spartan is more expensive in US, but EAA shotgun is a good deal.

Buy anything old and used over that new rusky stuff (do to over pricing now). The Old Stevens doubles are good. The 20's and 16's tend to cost a little more.

I would love to find an affordable 20 gauge side by side with screw in choke tubes, selective ejectors, single selective trigger, and must be able to digest steel shot.

Anything out there?
