Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Italian Gun is the first book ever written entirely in English for American enthusiasts who own, aspire to own, or simply admire Italian shotguns. The authors introduce you to the gunmakers of northernmost Italy, the hub of the Italian gunmaking industry for over 300 years. Enter the gunshops of Beretta, Rizzini, Bertuzzi, Bosis, Fabbri, and many others. See some of the world's finest shotguns still made in the manner of the early guilds and why firms such as Perazzi captivate the sporting clays market. View the artistry of the world's best engravers in the lavish 16-page color spread and 125 black and white photos. The Italian Gun contains chapters on: the history of Italian gunmaking proofmarks and patents, makers' serial numbers, grades and varieties of wood and wood finishes in stockmaking, choke and gauge and much more. Finally, there is a complete listing of importers as well as information on how to order an Italian gun.
