I am curious what the World marketplace actually considers a “matched pair”of shotguns.

I would like people to offer up which elements of two shotguns laying side-by-side, need to be the same for the two shotguns to be considered a “matched pair”.

I separate it into physical and mechanical properties.

IMHO, Presuming they were ordered on the same day, as a set, they should be physically as identical as possible.
So, same barrels, same triggers, bookmatch wood, same engraving, etc.

Mechanically, everything should be the same.

Same trigger pull, same effort to cock, same top lever force and distance, same weight, same moi, same balance.

My personal standard, is that the shooter should not discern any difference between one and the other.

I am curious what other members may have to say.

I can’t promise that I may alter my view, however I am definitely amenable to accepting yours if well reasoned.

Actually CZ what you describe would be known as a pair in the trade. A matched pair would be ordering a gun,liking it, going back to the manufacturer and asking to have a second built " exactly" the same as the first, i.e. matching. A composed pair would be two guns built on separate occasions (possibly for different clients) which were subsequently bought together and every effort made to make them identical. Much a question of semantics but those are the terms used by the makers, definition and usage. may (will) become diluted outside the Gun trade.

‘If I ever desired’....Come on now Stan, we all know if the right deal popped up for a matched pair of something you liked, you would jump on it. On another note, I think there is something a little more than sickening in breaking up a true matched pair. The thought makes me nauseous....
