    +1 for SKB. Got a 505 for my 21st instead of a piss up. 25 odd years later it is still shoots great but now shoot with an SV10 and A400.

    Won't go wrong by going to a club and trying a few out - fit really is important. Bloody SKB fits better than the SV10.

    Well sadly the SKB 885 didn't fit me at all, could see too much of the top of the rib, has fixed chokes as well which I'm not a fan of.

    What chokes do you run for trap shooting?

    I don't shoot trap anymore but found this article which might answer a few questions for you.

    "Trap targets are always going away from you and at the point you shoot them they are still rising.
    To shoot rising targets, a trap gun is configured so that it shoots about 70% high. This enables the shooter to fire with the target in view just above the muzzle end of the rib and hit it in the middle of the pattern. The trap stock is higher than a skeet or sporting gun and you will see quite a bit of rib.
    As the target is always going away choking is usually quite tight: in the lower barrel (which is usually fired first) and full in the top.
    Trap guns are designed to do a job and aren’t much use for anything other than trap"

    See that's just cheating @duckdog, aiming artificially 70% high I mean, just don't seem right.

    @Savage1, I bought a Miroku Mk 70 with an adjustable comb last year. It has had less than 500rds of target ammo through it so isn't shot out or knackered in any way and it is in your price range.. ish.
    It is not for sale but..
    I'm not going to be using it for some time and I'm more than happy to send it to you for you to have a shoot or two with it and see if it suits.

    What an awesome offer, I've got a few up here to try first but I will keep it in mind.

    There are some good buggers on here!
