I'm thinking of ordering a 26", 20g. Bobwhite. Trouble is here in Ontario they are basically non existant and I will have to order it from the West, Likely Prophet River guns. My concern is that the only CZ I have handled was a ringneck and it felt way heavier than the CZ-USA website claims it to be. Any 20 guage Bobwhite owners out there that can provide actual weights? Was also tinkering with the thought of getting a 16 g. but from what I read it's just a 12 guage tube with a smaller hole so really more metal to carry around.

IMO, gun weight is the least most significant criterion. Fit should be your goal.

I hear a lot of guys taking about it, but frankly, I think most men should be able to carry a seven pound gun with one hand through cover.

I'm of a slight build but find no issues with a one handed carry with a heavier gun.

You'll shoot a slightly heavier gun better too.

I have a Dehaan 20 ga 28"; same gun different dress, but she will dance; 6 lb 6 oz.  A CZ Upland, same gun, but POW grip, 28" 20 ga; 6 lb 8 oz.

Yes, on some models CZ is optomistic about weights, but for sure not the 28s.

You are most likely correct Dave, but I found that my right shoulder is more durable carrying around a 5 lb gun on the prairie for days on end versus a 7 lb gun. JMHO

The reality is though that the gun will be carried way more than fired. The other thing is the cover I hunt is alot thicker than what many here would consider normal. If the dog is 50 yds out here you not only don't see him anymore but likely can't hear a bell either. I'm getting a GPS tracker this season also.

Really?

Jeez, I never even thought about that.

You hunt thick cover too?

Well, that changes things.

Most of us never hunt thick cover and always shoot our guns more than they are carried.

You've convinced me.

I'm with PC on this.  

I had a Browning 20/28 Superlight combo with 26" barrels, with the aluminum receiver.  With the 20 ga barrels it was a delight to carry.  Unfortunately I couldn't hit anything with it.

I've had several guns that fit me and I could field shoot quite well, a RL 28 ga with 28" barrels and pistol grip, an Arrietta 20 ga.  with 28" barrels stand out. Neither would be considered a superlight weight. Unfortunately in a fit of stupidity I sold the RL and in  a fit of a son's tuition due sold the Arrietta.

I now shoot CZ POW s x s, not because they're the lightest guns out there, but for the reason they fit me quite well and I therefore shoot them pretty well too.

I'm not the biggest guy around , 6'1'', 215, but I can carry them all day and  only use one hand or rest it on my shoulder until it's time to shoot.

I own one of these with 28 barrels.  It lives in WI now, but it is a nice gun.  As dave mentioned, too much is talked about weight (IMO).  Is it heavier than my Berrettas, probaly.  Is it too heavy to carry, no way.  I hunt 5 days in a row every yr in WI, and use it every day, in thick cover.

I was actually surprised how nice the gun was, for the amount I paid for it!
