Kansas City, KS (April 15, 2019) – Back by popular demand, and better than ever, the CZ Bobwhite G2 is still a traditional, double-trigger, side-by-side shotgun with an English-style grip.

CZ-USA’s done all this at a price that’s hard to beat.
The Bobwhite G2’s straight stock makes busting brush easier, and the double triggers allow for quick choke decisions when that quail, grouse or pheasant busts at distance. The Bobwhite G2 has 28-inch. barrel and can be had in 12, 20 or 28 gauge. Also included are five different screw-in choke tubes to modify your pattern for any bird hunting adventure.
For 2019, CZ-USA added floating firing pins, coil-spring operated hammers and redesigned the sears.
Between the straight stock and the updated CNC-ed G2 receiver, the Bobwhite is downright dainty in the smaller gauges; in 28 gauge, it tips the scales at an easy-carrying 5.5 pounds. CZ-USA gave the Bobwhite’s barrels and receiver CZ’s own tough black chrome finish, making this handsome side-by-side less prone to rusting than a blued gun.
