I wrote in and asked what this one weighed. "Comes in right at 6lbs,6 oz." they replied.

I already own a 16 gauge Greener that weighs 5 lbs. 9 oz.

And just compare the quality.

I was tempted to buy this 32 gauge, despite the horrible shiny varnish, the low-end wood, and the mass production receiver decoration to use on quail. But there is obviously no point at all. Smaller gauge, heavier gun.

Lots of companies use the same everything for their sub gauge guns and just bore a 20 gauge tube for the smaller hole.
It kind of Porks them out.

My Citori .410/28" weighed a lot more than my 686 20ga/28". Wish I still had that Citori.

The bigger question is what's the point of a 32 gauge at any weight?

No point, at least not for me.

But if it were a S x S at 4 pounds I might be interested.

It makes as much sense as those nine pound .410-bore over & unders found on NSSA skeet fields.

Researcher
The currentNSSA 410 champ (shot two 400's with a 410 in two years) He is not a big guy but his Kolar weighs in at 11 pounds. Reason for 11 pounds swings smooth and hard to stop. That Kolar was custom built for him. I would need a gun bearer to shoot 100 targets with it. I know another young shooter that shoots on a coledge team who just sold his K80 ( it was to light)and picked up a heavy Kolar for sporting clays?
I will miss more birds in my first 200 bird match than the pair will miss in a season.

It doesn't take a big guy to shoot a heavy gun well. That is proven fact. But, what are the real reasons for wanting to own a 32 gauge, at all?

I think I know, but I will keep my thoughts on that to myself (because ICBW), and prefer to hear other's opinions.
