CZ-USA’s Redhead Premier Now Available in the Venerable 16 Gauge

Kansas City, KS (May 5, 2020) – There was a time when a 16-gauge shotgun was the top choice for knowledgeable upland hunters and recreational shooters.

The last decade has seen a resurgence in this do-it-all shotgun chambering, and for 2020 CZ-USA now offers their flagship Redhead Premier Over-and-Under in the venerable 16-gauge.

The Redhead Premier 16GA features auto ejectors, a single selectable trigger and 28-inch barrels with Fixed IC/MOD chokes. As with all Redhead Premier models, the new 16 GA addition is solidly built, and this strength starts with a one-piece CNC-ed receiver. Also, it features a Turkish walnut stock and forend, laser-cut checkering, solid mid-ribs, a pistol grip and a Bradley-style white front bead. The Redhead Premier 16GA feels natural and comfortable on the shoulder, comes up quickly and gets on target fast. 

An actual all-purpose O/U, the Redhead Premier 16GA is just as comfortable and functional at sporting clay events as it is when chasing pheasants in milo fields. With a silver receiver and ejectors that kicks out the spent shells automatically, the Redhead Premier is packed with features that can’t be found on another shotgun in its price range.
