2003–2004 Beretta AL391 Urika
Successor to the A390, this gun picks up where its forerunner left off as a supremely reliable semiauto that can fire unheard-of numbers of rounds between cleanings. Like its predecessor, the AL391 is one of the few semiautos reliable enough to be a serious sporting clays gun. This workhorse cleans up handsomely as a DU dinner gun, with a two-tone black-and-silver receiver decorated with gold engraving and a high-gloss deluxe walnut stock. Weighing just seven pounds, it has a 3-inch chamber and 28-inch barrel with interchangeable chokes.

2004–2005 Winchester Super X2
Winchester took the proven gas-operating system of the Browning Gold and put it inside a gun with the lines of the classic Super X1. The result was the Super X2, which proved to be every bit as reliable and soft-recoiling as its predecessor. This DU version of the SX2 has a 3-inch chamber and 28-inch barrel with interchangeable chokes. Upgrades include a gloss-finished walnut stock and forearm as well as a receiver decorated with gold inlaid artwork by David Maass. 

2005–2006 Beretta White Onyx
Beretta's 686 White Onyx has the distinction of being the first over/under ever chosen as DU's Gun of the Year. The Beretta 680 series is popular the world over for its low-profile action and durability. This gun was the first of a set; identical smallbore versions were selected as Guns of the Year in 2008 (20-gauge) and 2009 (28-gauge). This White Onyx features a silver receiver engraved with gold inlaid ducks. It also has a schnabel forearm, 3-inch chambers, and 28-inch barrels with interchangeable chokes.
