Our Assessment: The Maxum Impact Sporting is truly a stunning over/under shotgun. The deep relief gothic scroll hand finished engraving on the receiver, side plates, and fore-end assembly make this sporting gun unique among others on the clays course. The handwork and design are from the studios of the world renowned Italian engraving house, Bottega Incisioni C. Giovanelli. The coin finish frame is painstakingly hand polished. Balancing the beauty of the deeply sculpted engraving is a deluxe grade of Turkish walnut, featuring precision cut 26 lines-per-inch checkering and a natural oil finish, hand rubbed to a sheen that enhances the highly figured wood grain. This one looks like it has hardly seen any use over the last decade and looks amazing. The engraving and stocks are world class, a true piece of art for collection!! Please see our pictures and good luck.

Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
