Built at the request of Pheasants Forever, the Quail is their 2019 Youth Gun of the Year.
Nearly identical to the popular CZ Drake, what sets the Quail apart is a slightly shorter length of pull that makes it more comfortable to carry and shoot for youth shooters and hunters. The mid-rib delete trims a noticeable amount of weight from the muzzle end of this over/under, making it easier to shoulder and swing.
Chambered in 20 gauge and fitted with 28″ barrels, the Quail comes in at the same great price point as the Drake, making it a much more attainable investment than most similarly-equipped youth shotguns. Once broken in a bit, extractor guns tend to be substantially easier to open than their ejector counterparts, and this gun is no exception. A single extractor lifts spent shells from the chambers, and the shotgun ships with five interchangeable choke tubes.
Built to last a lifetime, stocks are from Turkish walnut and the black chrome finish provides substantial corrosion resistance — night and day better than a blued gun.
