Our Assessment: This is a beautiful Italian made over/under 20 gauge shotgun with outstanding looking wood. The engraving is tasteful. You don’t even have to shoot this shotgun to appreciate it. If you do shoot it, however, you will be rewarded with a solid well balanced 20 gauge with enough heft to not be punishing to shoot in the field or an entire one hundred round course of sporting clays. 20 Gauge is probably America’s favorite non-12 Gauge shotgun bore and you’ll find out why with this beautiful Italian made this gun.
