What are the best over under shotguns under £2000 and are they proofed for shooting steel shot?


With more and more game shooters in the UK moving from their old non-steel-proof shotguns to modern steel-proof guns, what’s the best over-and-under shotgun for the money and is it proofed for shooting steel shot?

Gunshop owner Ian Hodge of Ian Hodge Fieldsports talks through his bestsellers. The Beretta Silver Pigeon 3 might exceed a £2000 limit but these brands will provide a quality gun without breaking the bank, as Ian explains: Lincoln shotguns, Caesar Guerini Maxum, Browning 525 SL, Marocchi Finn 612, Bettinsoli shotguns and Beretta’s 686 White Onyx Sporting all make Ian’s list.
