Gun Reviews

Salvinelli EXL Sporting

The EXL Sporting was very nice to shoot. It definitely had that racy Italian feel. I really enjoyed shooting this gun. It required no technique changes and was equally at home with swing-through or sustained-lead methods.

Fausti XF4 Sport

Fausti XF4 Sport

Since 2009 I have reviewed Fausti shotguns five times and never been disappointed. The new Fausti XF4 Sport is just such a target gun. It is said to be a multi-discipline gun suitable for trap, skeet, sporting clays and FITASC.

Rizzini BR110

The BR110 is “modestly elegant,” with minimal engraving, bright-blued barrels and decently figured wood.

With modern computerized machinery it now is possible to produce low-cost shotguns of a quality level impossible just a decade or two ago.

Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen

Browning A5 Sweet Sixteen

The A5’s looks are modeled after John Browning’s popular humpbacked Auto-5, though the action is more contemporary. It is the only 16-gauge autoloader in its class. Read more about this gun review.

Merkel 40E

Built on the same action and barrels as more-expensive guns, the 40E requires less handwork in its engraving
and stocking.
