Finish Originality: Original

Bore Condition: The bores are mostly bright. There is no erosion in the bores, but they do have some stubborn fouling, most notable in the 28 gauge barrel set. In this writer’s opinion, these bores rate about 9 out of 10.

Overall Condition: This shotgun set retains about 97% of its metal finish. The receiver has some scattered handling marks and infrequent spots of faint surface oxidation. The barrel sets show light handling marks. The action shows light operational wear. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are crisp. Overall, this shotgun set rates in Fine-plus condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The shotgun has an upper tang mounted safety & barrel selector, it does not set automatically but functions correctly when manually set. All barrel sets lock up to the receiver with no play. We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is a gray hard case, the previously described chokes, 28/.410 choke wrench, stock adjustment wrench, pairs of snap-cap/chamber-mops for the 20 and .410 barrels.

Our Assessment: The Maxum 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. The Maxum Sporting is available in 12 gauge as a standard offering; 12 gauge models feature the Maxis Bore/Choke System and are offered in barrels up to 34” for the serious competitor. 20, 28 and combination two-barrel sets in 20/28 gauge and three barrel sets in 20/28/410 are also available.

This is a 20/28/410 three-barrel set and is a great sporting setup that can tackle any obstacle at the range. The engraving and stocks are world class, a true piece of art. With a wide variety of chokes included and appearing to have seen some responsible use, this is a great sub-gauge set that is ready to drop some flesh or clay birds. Please see our pictures and good luck!
