CZ-USA has replaced the predecessor, the Wingshooter, with the Wingshooter Elite for this year. Overall at first glance the new Wingshooter Elite is very similar to the previous Wingshooter with the exception of the fact that the new version is now built on CZ’s new CNC’ed one piece receiver which has added significant strength to an already fine shotgun. 
 
The Elite is a very distinct and elegant looking firearm with a two tone hand-engraved receiver, black and chromed finish nicely mated to Turkish walnut stock and forearm. That being said this is a gun you will want to take to the field, as it comes standard with CZ’s best features in their over/under line. These would include a single selectable trigger, solid mid-ribs and independent auto ejectors. 
 
We tested the 12 gauge model, but the Wingshooter Elite is also available in a 20 gauge model and both come with standard 28” selectable barrels. Make no mistake this shotgun functions and shoots very well, but if you’re one who likes to make a statement with your shotgun but is also on a budget the Wingshooter Elite is the perfect gun. Our lineup of shooters found the gun to be very well balanced and very pleasing to the eye.
