I need new gun!

Hey guys I'm looking to get a stacked double for trap and skeet. Mostly skeet but I would like it to work well on the trap side also. In addition I plan on using it for upland birds and grouse. I realize I am asking a lot out of one gun but I feel like a good shot gun will do lots of different things well. The two I've really been interested in are the CZ Redhead premier and the Weatherby Orion 1. I'm hoping some one out there can give some insight on both. I own a Stoeger M3500 and love it but I am not confident their doubles will hold up to the round count I plan on shooting. Any insight or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

While it's not optimal, I shoot all the clays games with one gun: Beretta Silver Pigeon Sporting. Here's a link to a recent thread that might help get you started. Recommendations for a trap shotgun

So I was able to talk my lovely wife in to a little bigger budget for a trap/skeet gun. I am looking at a Browning Citori or a Winchester 101 but I'm open for anything in the $2500 range. Suggestions and personal experience is what I'm hoping for here.

I've shot the same Browning Special Sporting Clays since 1990 so I can't really comment on the new models,but the 725 and the CX/Crossover are getting good reviews.

I've shot all the clays games with this gun with the only issue being breaking the lite pipes on the hi-viz bead.

At < $2500, you should be able to easily swing a Browning, Beretta, or Winchester. From there fit is your biggest criteria.
