New Pointer Side by Side Priced at $699
Legacy Sports International in Reno, Nevada has built a solid reputation with their Pointer Line of affordable over/under and semi-automatic shotguns – especially in the youth segment. Now Legacy Sports International is expanding the Pointer family into field-grade side by sides that will be available in both 12 and 20 gauge for $699.00.
“There’s certainly a demand for a Pointer side by side,” said Andy McCormick Senior Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales, at Legacy Sports International. “We’ve had lots of requests for it. We’re just answering the call for our customers and accounts and who are looking for an affordable side by side field gun.”
The Pointer side by side has been introduced in booth 13832 at the Shot Show, held in Las Vegas January 17 – 20, 2023 in Las Vegas.
“We think we’ve got a good offering with the Pointer side by side,” he continued. “Everyone who’s handled it likes it.”
The Pointer side by side will be rolled out in stages. The 12 gauge will appear first, shortly followed by the 20 gauge. Initially, the only receiver option is black, although a nickel version is “right behind it,” according to Andy.
The side by side is made by Kirici Arms in Turkey exclusively for Legacy Sports International. A seven-year warranty is standard.
Andy described the wood-to-metal finish as “nice, with no gaps or overlaps, or uneven edges. It has a nice design and ergonomics. The guys here at Legacy shot it and liked it.”
The Pointer side by side will be available 26-inch or 28-inch barrels with five steel-proofed, screw-in chokes. The single trigger is mechanical. The matte-finished black walnut stock has a pistol grip with an accompanying splinter-type forend but with beavertail ergonomics, and of course laser checkering. The 12-gauge Pointer side by side weighs 7.4 pounds.
“It’s a nicely balanced gun,” Andy said.
