I have a CZ Redhead 12GA....I am quite satisfied with it. I bought it at Davis Sport a few years ago at substantially less than the MSRP.I bought the stoeger condor in 20 ga. for my son, it is a nice lite gun but it will misfire using Remington ammo and the safety has to be manually pulled back when the gun is opened. I have been looking at the CZ Redhead for my daughter.
browning has a sales statement about the citori: "it wears in, not out."Citori, love it. Pricier than your ideas but advice was given to me to save the extra $$ and wait. They were right.
On modern doubles you can shoot steel safely. For "older" doubles with fixed chokes you should use a "steel-shot alternative" like tungsten-iron, tungsten-matrix or bismuth. Shooting steel out of the older doubles will sometimes spring the soft-soldered barrel ribs off and/or separate the barrels!I have always thought you could not shoot steel shot through a double barrel shotgun.
If you want one, you better hurry to buy one. The Ruger factory is mum on the subject but they seem have dropped the Red Label from their 2012 catalog. Other forums/sites have spelled and discussed its demise recently. (Supposedly they sold less than a 1,000 units last year?) The problem with the RRL has been a cost similar to a B-shotgun (Beretta or Browning Citori) but it lacked the quality, durability and refinement of the two B's. And the RRL never had the resale value of either B-shotgun.Buy American and get a Ruger Red Lable!
