Lightweight shotguns for game

Game shooters often prefer a lighter weight shotgun, especially for walked-up shooting where you may be carrying the gun for some distance, along with all your other kit and cartridges. Robbie Shedden of Cluny Country reckons the Yildiz is a good choice. It has a lightweight alloy action, coming in at an overall weight around 2.8kg (approx 6lb 3oz), significantly less than a Beretta Silver Pigeon, for instance. The Yildiz comes in a range of bore sizes from .410 up to 12-bore, and is available with a standard 14 ¾ in stock or a shorter 13 ½ in stock for ladies and youngsters. Prices are around £750, which Robbie says makes them excellent value for money.
