Not seeing much locally, my nephew is looking for something in the $700 range. Is that even a reasonable expectation?

I’d suggest a Citori but in 20 he may have to pay more.

I bought my younger son a Miroku Daly 20 as his starter gun a long time ago. Nice gun, but they were much cheaper then. For a budget starter 20 these days, I would recommend a Yildiz from Academy. A friend bought a pair for his boys and they have turned out to be excellent guns for the money.

I see Miroku's come up in the local classifieds for $800 occasionally, but they are usually in 12.

Lloyd,
What Bob said. One of the sleepers from back in the day are the pre Garcia Beretta Silver Snipe O/Us, but, it has been a long time since I have seen a 20 go for less than about $800. You get Italian quality, a reliable, but, non selective single trigger, and fixed chokes. Steel shot is at your own risk. At this kind of money, I wouldn’t lose much sleep over it, assuming less than modified choke.

This isn't quite as low as you specified, but who knows what they'll take? Make an offer? Even at $999 it's a lot of gun.

I've been shooting a Verona LX 692 28/.410 for about ten years. I have nothing but praise for it. Veronas are the most undervalued, overlooked O/U on the market, IMO.

If there's any concern about repairs there is a dealer/gunsmith in NV for FAIR, trained by the Rizzinis in Italy, named Bazil Slaughter. He ordered my FAIR Iside Tartaruga Gold .410 for me. Great guy, and a straight shooter.

I have enjoyed hunting with my Beretta BL4 20 gauge. It has 28" barrels (imp mod/mod) and handles very nicely. I bought it 15 years ago for $600.
Double Gun Journal Volume 12, Issue 2 has a good article on "Beretta Field Grade Doubles"

I suggest he save his money or you add some money and buy him a Browning Citouri or an
Olin Kodensha Winchester 101.
My buddy Pete Feron that's 90 years old and brought back over 100 Winchester 101's when stationed in Japan in the 1960's when asked about his experiences with Mirouko said back in the early Mirouko days that they were prone to breaking and you couldn't give them away.

If you think you're nephew will be happy with a junk gun with gold painted birds then go with Stans suggestion.
