    An Italian made shotgun from a small manufacturer. Similar to the Rizzini's.

    I believe the unsingle would have been the one made for Frenchy Frigon.

    Newer ones use a Boss action similar to the Perazzi as I remember...

    Mostly seen in sporting clays...

    I believe they are/were made in Brescia, Italy. For a few years in the mid-80s somebody was importing them. Those looked like copy-cat Beretta 680s and 682s with dark (blued?) receivers. An Italian friend told me that gun making in Brescia was still a bit of a cottage industry with even Beretta sub-contracting work to the smaller shops in town.

    first mistake is to believe anything what a gun salesman from Gander tells you.....


    they are good guns but they aren't anything special. The price should reflect that considering they do not have a strong name branding within the shotgun sports world compared to the big names like Beretta, Blaser, etc.

    I hate to say this, but the triggers on these guns were absolutely crude.

    I'd worked on several. Frenchy brought these into the US.

    Frenchy and I were good friends and often dined out together when we attended shoots together.

    Whiz - Are you talking about the Frigons or the 680 look-a-likes?

    The newer model 99's are a Boss action and pretty decent guns. Just bad marketing. I had a solid left hand Conquista at one time. Good trigger, but reminded me of a Winchester 101. Kept kicking me...

    One of the best American pigeon shooters shot one during his prime, which lasted quite a while.
