Due to a general lack of consolidated information on Huglu guns in the US, I am putting together a short page with any useful information about the guns as I can gather. If you’d like more information, help, or have something I should add here, please feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thanks and hope you find something useful!!
Huglu makes a few different models of Side-by-side, Over/Under, Pump, and Semi-automatic shotguns. They are also imported by at least 3 different companies into the United States and the naming conventions do not necessarily remain the same. CZ is likely the most commonly seen “version” of the Huglu guns. They have names, mostly derived from various birds, for each model, with “Deluxe” appended to the name to signify Ejectors rather than extractors on the double-guns. TR Imports also sells Huglu guns, but keeps the Huglu model numbers intact. 1xx numbers denote Over/Under guns, 2xx numbers are Side-by-sides, and the 601 and 701s are the 12 and 20 gauge semi-autos.
There are CZ names for almost all of the Huglu models except one that I know of. I do not believe CZ has a name for the “Sporting” Huglu 101 that are available in trap, skeet, and sporting clay configurations. Otherwise they go together as follows…
- Huglu 103 D / DE (Black) = Canvasback / Canvasback Deluxe
- Huglu 103 D / DE (Silver) = Redhead / Redhead Deluxe
- Huglu 103 F / FE = Woodcock / Woodcock Deluxe
- Huglu 103 Eagle Ultralight = Upland Ultralight
- Huglu 104 A = Mallard
- Huglu 202 B = Bobwhite
- Huglu 200 A = Ringneck
- Huglu 601 = CZ 712
- Huglu 701 = CZ 720
As previously mentioned, Huglu has several importers into the United States. There may be others as well, but these are the companies I know for sure that do.
- CZ USA ( www.cz-usa.com )
- T.R. Imports ( www.trimports.com )
- DeHaan Shotguns ( www.dhshotguns.com )
- Orvis ( www.orvis.com )
CZ USA sells through major gun dealers only, they do not sell guns through their company website.
TR Imports sells directly from their website, though they do have a brick’n-mortar location as well in Texas. A major advantage to TR Imports is they show pictures of the exact gun you are buying, not just stock photos. You can browse to your heart’s content and pick your favorite piece of wood. They often have “standard” grade guns listed that have received very beautiful stocks and forends.
DeHaan Shotguns is an Idaho-based operation that sells custom-made Huglu shotguns to order. Mark requires a deposit at the time you order your gun, but it will be built to your exact specifications. You can specify chokes, triggers, wood grade, engravings, etc. It will truly be a one-of-a-kind gun when you receive it. Mark also will perform gunsmithing work to Huglu-made guns that were not sold under the DeHaan brand.
