Our Assessment: The Caesar Guerini over-under shotguns must meet three fundamental requirements: an impeccable mechanical design in every part, perfectly constructed and destined to last over time, as a guarantee of excellent performance; an optimal ballistic yield and an equally good weight adjustment. To these features are added a pleasant and refined aspect that distinguishes all Caesar Guerini’s over-unders and gives them an unmistakable stamp of Italian styling. This is quite the set from Caesar Guerini! The 34? Un-Single and 32?
