I've fondled an Autumn, it is a very nice boom stick, albeit too pricey for any field gun of mine. The best bang for your buck in a field grade double trigger SxS is the CZ Bobwhite G2 which can be found for under $600 if you look hard enough. It's a solid gun for field work but the finish and wood grade won't even come close to anything in the $2K+ range. IMHO, why bother with spending money on a beautifully finished out field gun that will inevitably get beat around in the truck and in the field?The new Fabarm Autumn 20 looks like a nice SxS, but pricier than I want to go. I’m shooting a Classic Doubles 201, which I believe may be an exact replica of the Winchester Model 23, and also made in Japan. One in very nice condition about $2500, so a bit more than half the price of the Fabarm. My only complaint if there is one, is it’s fixed choke (IC/Mod). Lovely wood, and a great English stock.
Here is a link to a review of the FAIR Iside which retails for nearly $1800 but can be found closer to $1K in stores. According to the article it was spot on in every way short of the stiff safety selector. I find it to be a much nicer gun than the CZ in fit/finish but it isn't much different in terms of build quality. It comes with interchangeable chokes like the CZ but it only comes with three instead of five like with the CZ. I am seriously considering buying an Iside in 20ga later in the season and for as little as I shoot SxS's I can't really justify spending much more than $1K on one, the Iside falls perfectly into that role.
