New CZ Quail: Pheasants Forever's Top Youth Gun
CZ Quail shotgun

The new CZ Quail over-and-under shotgun has been named 2019 Youth Gun of the Year by conservation group Pheasants Forever, the company said in a news release.

CZ-USA built the new Quail — nearly identical to the popular CZ Drake — at the request of PF. The CZ Quail is different than the Drake in that it has a slightly shorter length of pull at 13 ¾ inches, making it more comfortable to carry and use for youth shooters and smaller-framed hunters. CZ-USA's deletion on the midrib also trimmed off a noticeable amount of weight from the muzzle end so the shotgun is easier to shoulder and a bit quicker to swing on target.

The Quail also boasts a single trigger and selectable barrels. More from CZ-USA:

This is an extractor gun which tends to be substantially easier to open than their ejector counterparts, and the CZ Quail s no exception. A single extractor lifts spent shells from the chambers. The shotgun also ships with five interchangeable choke tubes.

The one piece, CNC-ed receiver is made from 40/41 steel and very durable. The stock and forend are cut from Turkish walnut and feature laser-engraved checkering for a secure grip.

Chambered in 20 gauge and fitted with a 28-inch, vent ribbed barrel, the CZ 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.
