Shotguns are most commonly found in semi-automatic and pump-action. Single-shots are also available, as are double-barrel, which includes side-by-side and over-under.
Sometimes called self-loading or autoloading, a semi-automatic fires a single round with each squeeze of the trigger. There is no need to manually reload after each shot, as rounds will continue to be fired, one at a time, until the shells have been depleted.
Pump-actions, which are sometimes referred to as slide-actions or pump shotguns, can hold multiple shells at a time, but each round must be chambered manually by sliding the forend back towards the user. This motion is repeated after each shot to both eject the spent casing and chamber a new round. The sliding of the forend and chambering of a shell on a pump-action delivers a somewhat loud and unmistakable sound. For many, this is a preferred home defense weapon.
Just as the name implies, a single-shot shotgun holds and fires only one shot at a time. Their simplicity, with fewer parts to break, contributes to their popularity. Single shots are often the preferred action for youth guns.
A double-barrel shotgun, also as the name implies, employs the use of two barrels, either side-by-side (SxS) or over-and-under (O/U). They hold two shells at one time. The most common applications for double-barrels include target sports and hunting.
The most popular shotguns for sale are made by Browning, Remington, Henry Repeating Arms, and Stoeger.
The Browning A5 is one of the best-selling semi-automatics. It is available in a wide range of variants with different features.
Not only the top-selling pump-action but the best-selling shotgun of all time is the Remington Model 870. More than 11 million models have been sold since 1950. There are hundreds of variations built on the tried and true action, but the more popular variants include the 870 Express and the 870 Wingmaster.
The Henry Single Shot takes the top spot for single-shot shotguns for sale. It is made with a steel or hardened brass frame and an American walnut stock. It is available in 12- and 20-gauge and 410 bore, with a 26" or 28" barrel.
Available in 12- or 20-gauge, the Stoeger Uplander is one of the most popular side-by-sides. It features a checkered walnut stock with recoil pad and 20" barrels with brass bead front sights.
The best-selling over-under shotguns include the 12-gauge Browning Citori 725. Crafted with a walnut stock and highly polished blued 28" barrels, it is available in several variants with numerous options.
The price of shotguns for sale varies greatly and depends on the manufacturer, action, features, and other factors. While some can be purchased new for well under $200, others sell for several thousand dollars or more.
