    CZ Over/Under REDHEAD with a twist...?

    I keep thinking of a hunting rifle/shotgun I can take to hunt deer, and pull in a few birds with a spare chamber...
    I was thinking and over and under, with the top barrel rifled for slug and the bottom barrel choked for grouse?
    I quite like the Redhead from CZ, tho the coin finish is a little bright... but I have never actually owned a shotgun before...so I thought I would ask more experienced people for thier input?
    Thanks!
    Jon

    I don't know if I've ever heard of an O/U with one rifled barrel and one non rifled barrel.

    You could always run both barrels smooth and carry rifled slugs?

    Salvage made the model 24 for many years in different combinations. They ranged from 22lr and 410 to 30/30 and 20 ga possible even 12ga. but you have to look around the gunshows to find them, i don`t se them in current catalogs. Brno makes the model 802 in 12ga and some different rifle cartridges, nice o/u but not real popular in Canada. Some other companys build o/u combos but they are not cheap. Tis a good idea just not real popular in North America, i think you would find more available in Europe.

    Are you planning on running sabots? I'd be keeping it smooth and using slugs.

    What about using rifled chokes? I've never used them, but I know they exist. Just carry a couple extra chokes, or install one in one of the barrels. Maybe?

    its my understanding that rifled slugs are not for creating a spin, but rifled to allowed the slugs metal to be easier to condence while being shot out of a choke.

    i may be wrong, please correct me if i am.

    also check the market Haywire has a steal of a deal for a multi barrel gun.

    I learned something new today.

    The rifling on slugs was originally designed to create a spin. But turns out that the rifling grooves don't do a very good job of this. Their performance is actually quite poor! However, they do allow the slug to "squeeze" through tighter fitting chokes. The term "rifled slugs" had already stuck by the time they figured it out. The tight fit coming out of the gun is what creates the accuracy, as I understand it.

    Not sure how rifled chokes would work. Its a pretty short chunk of tube to impart a twist on the slug, especially when its had 18+ inches of freebore to establish itself.
