faustishotgunshnt4evr010714

Fausti Stefano SRL has donated a beautiful Fausti Over and Under Shotgun in 28 gauge for the 2014 Annual Convention and Auction. FAUSTI has recreated the elegant craftsmanship and classic look of the 1700s  fowling pieces with the Venetian. This finely crafted and highly engraved over and under shotgun is built on a round action body entirely dedicated to the gauge (28ga). The guns come with traditional half pistol grip stocks completed by classic steel grip caps and splinter fore-ends. The floral engraving patterns are entirely hand cut and signed by the Master Engraver. If you look closely, you will discover mythological and architectural symbols of a City which still resonates in the hearts of modern daydreamers. The Venetian  is a truly unique piece, enhanced with gold inlays. Other details include 28″ blued barrels, automatic ejectors and a single trigger. A beautiful, fully accessorized leather case is included. For more information, visit www.faustiarms.com.
