Stevens unveiled their single-shot, break-action shotgun, the Stevens 301, at NRA 2017.
The shotgun features a rugged synthetic stock and is available in a variety of configurations and gauges, from 12 GA to a 20 GA to .410 GA, and with barrel lengths of 22 and 26 inches for the compact model and standard model respectively.
I’m not going to lie, the best thing about this gun is the price point. With an MSRP of $173 it’s an approachable purchase for just about any budget. Heck, you can save up your empty beer or soda cans from the summer, cash them in at the beginning of fall and probably have enough coin to buy a Stevens 301 for whitetail season.
It’s really a great starter gun for new shooters. It’s obviously very easy to use, very easy to shoot and (depending on your gauge selection) very easy to handle.
And, whether you’re out in the woods or defending your home, sometimes one shot from a scatter gun is all you need. As it’s been said, one shot, one kill.
I mean, I guess that’s true unless you’re Joe Biden, who always requires two shots. But in that case, you’re not even putting them on target because you’re just blasting them straight up into the air. LOL.
