This article indicates the sxs market in N. America is strong and doing well I’m not sure I agree if we’re talking guns closer to the $5000 range

He’s about a decade to two decades behind the curve. Since I’ve been into SxS shotguns, the last few years has been the most stagnant I’ve ever seen it in regards to market.

well, the market for 12 ga guns is soft, but 16's and smaller sell well...

the higher the price, the fewer the buyers...

and we dont need anymore new sxs guns...plenty of old ones to meet demand...

That’s not an article. That’s an ad.

Funny how there is no mention of CSMC. Seems to me they were busy over the last dozen years creating and offering an under $5K SxS.

CSMC probably disqualified itself with its reportely poor quality control.

So true Joe....(in my case not reported, but experienced, poor QC)


Seems to me the article is focused on NEW products....nothing used was barely mentioned.

It is interesting- in the UK they are going to phase out lead, and there is a big fear that the old SxS that is not Steel Shot Proof will be a forgotten item. Yet there is a lot of research there that chokes of less than 1/2 will be 'OK' for steel shot.
It could go either way...

Every NEW person into upland is either looking for a Benelli Auto OR a Browing U/O...I don't hear a lot of guys asking about where to find a sub 6lb 16ga with a Kirsten and Side Clips...

I keep hearing the 12ga. market is soft. I see guns listed for 3,4 years and they still won’t deal. I’m sure there are more that have been listed much longer.

Precisely why I no longer subscribe to any of the older hunting and fishing rags. They write stuff that pleases their advertisers in order to "survive" (read, make money). The result is tainted. Shooting Sportsman was the last I dropped because of their stupid ads and cover pictures. In retrospect, DGJ is the only sporting periodical that I still have a paid subscription to. If I were to take out another it would be Sporting Classics. I do subscribe to Sporting Classics Daily, but it's free.

Speak for yourself. "We" does not include me.

What seems to be selling well in Western Canada are Huglu shotguns. Cheap is desirable, apparently.
Ordinary British boxlocks in 12 gauge are a hard sell.
Huge numbers of European cast-offs have been sold in Canada, just like the US. Many of them are pitted or have other serious condition issues. It is possible to get a good gun, but you have to be careful.
It seems that new guns by better makers like B Rizzini sold very slowly. I think it is related to price point.
