    I started looking for a coach gun a while ago, and it seems like the only thing I can find is Stoeger. I like Benelli, and by extension would like to like Stoeger, but I can't get past the "Made in Brazil" stamp on the bottom. Does anyone American make a coach gun these days? I would love to find a newer production Remington, but it seems like all I can find are older ones. Any info is greatly appreciated!

    No clue on an American made one, but the Stoeger coach guns are quite nice. get the chambers polished and it makes extracting the hulls much easier.

    Light, compact, and dirt simple to operate.

    i think you are going to have a long wait for a new American made SXS coach gun.

    We ended up with three "foriegn made" and are quite happy.

    New probably wasn't the right word. Perhaps "modern" would be a better way to say it. The only reason I even say that is that most of the Remingtons that I can find are 1894 (not necessarily the year, but still pretty old). If I have to buy a longer barrel gun and have it cut down that's fine, but I'd rather not cut off and throw away a hundred year old damascus barrel.

    I would think the closes your going to find in a USA made one is an old Stevens (Savage) model 311. They were made into the late 70's if I recall.NYPD issued them to Detectives for raids. If you have ever seen the movie "The Seven Ups" one is used in the final scenes.

    I have one of the old Stevens, it was made for Sears, so it has the Sears brand name on it.

    You are aware that firing smokeless ammo in a damascus barrel is a 'no-no"?

    You probably know it but I don't assume when it comes to safety

    Matt, those Stevens doubles are out there, not too hard to find one as long as you don't get too picky. I have wanted one for a long time and one just happened in to my LGS at a price I couldn't refuse to break out the credit card on.

    That is exactly what I want. Is it strange or unusual that it has rifle sights?

    At least it is a wide open buck horn rear, should be pretty quick to pick up.

    The sad thing is that the newer S/S & O/U shotguns, even if marked Remington or Savage or whatever, are made overseas. Remington was selling Russian Bailkal shotguns under their label. Others US companies had their own imports from Italy, Turkey & China.

    +1 on this.

    If you want a true "American Made" you are going to need to go used.

    Find a used Stevens or Savage 311. Should be about $250-$350 depending upon condition.

    I found one that was already cut down to 18" for $250.

    If it was originally equipped with rifle sights, it also may have rifled barrels. I didn't see where it said what kind of choke, or if rifled barrels......?

    I'd ask the owner, if you intend to bid on this one.

    I've emailed twice. I haven't received a response yet. I'd really like to buy it but there are some details I'd like to have first.
