I purchased the Sharptail in 16 gauge as an inexpensive SXS upland gun so I would not have to travel with one of my more pricey doubles. I have seen quite a few Sharptail's on the sporting clay clubs I frequent. They have all seemed to be solid, well built guns for the money. When I unboxed my new gun I was very impressed with the wood furniture. It was actually a pretty nice piece of wood with very functional checkering that is not gaudy. The case hardening was very attractive, especially on the false side plates. The fit between the wood and metal was well executed. overall a very nice looking shotgun.
The gun was advertised as weighing 7lb. 3oz. which is a tad heavy for a 16 gauge upland gun, but thought I could end up with one that was on the lighter side. I weighed the gun and it was 7lb. 13oz. The gun is built on a 12 gauge frame. It is not exactly what I would consider an ideal upland gun but would rather break or loose a 1k gun than a 3k-7k gun.
I have shot a little over a flat of shells at sporting clays in the week I have had the gun. it is well balanced, points good, and the single trigger is very crisp with just a bit of take up. The selector works very well but would still liked to have had double triggers. For shooting sporting clay sub-gauge fun matches with a 16 or dove hunting it should do just fine. I did take a black marker and covered the front (white) bead that drew my eye to it every time I looked down the barrel.
Overall it is a dandy gun. well made and nice looking. It is not a Purdey, Churchill, H&H, Parker, or even a Browning BSS. But for the money, a very good Buy.
