The 28-gauge has proven its worth on the field and range, and number of manufacturers are turning out options in this nifty gauge.
There are a lot of reasons to love the little 28-gauge, and every year more and more shooters are trading in their hard-kicking heavy 12-bores for these lighter guns.
The 28-gauge still packs plenty of power for most upland situations, and there are now a number of manufacturers producing fine 28s for the field and range.
If you prefer classic doubles, check out Fausti’s beautiful DEA side-by-side, a svelte, gorgeous little double that weighs right around 5 pounds and could only have come from Italy.
If you prefer an over/under, Franchi now offers its round-body, which tips the scales under 6 pounds and features a case-hardened receiver and oil-finished walnut stock.
If you’re looking for a budget 28, Weatherby’s SA-08 28-gauge Deluxe offers superb balance and handling, and the gas system virtually eliminates felt recoil.
