    Caesar Guerini was showing a new semi-auto .12 Sporting and Trap
    gun at the SHOT show. Guerini has purchased FAB Arms. The gun is under
    the FAB Arms label. It is a .12 semi-auto with adjustable rib and
    comb. The trigger is adjustable for length-of-pull. Really neat
    laser engraving on the stock and forend. Point-of-impact is 50%
    to 80% high. Shipments are scheduled for April. Retail about
    $2,500 according to the rep's.

    Beretta has developed a pretty stout following with their auto's. I find my auto heading out to the range more these days than my O/U's.

    I'd like to give one of the new Guerini's a try.

    Biil Grill,
    Everyone said Guerini wouldn't last two years, I think that was six or so years ago. Guerini not only has staying power , they have been the leading bench mark for full featured guns and thus far no one has kept pace with their offerings. Don't be suprised if their auto is another home run.

    No question all long gun manufacturers are in jepardy if the economy doesn't improve, but for now Guerini on a winning fast track.

    Thx Jack for the photos. I am an auto fan ( and yes I also like the single barrel guns) The only thing wrong with this one is price but if you can take it home and not have to make a lot of changes it would be ok. I have more than $2500 in my auto trap guns by the time I put a comb, rib, wood etc on them. Bill - I understand your comment completely but there are a few of us left LOL

    I'm not much of a auto loader fan but I would buy it. It would replace my Benelli SS.

    I have a bushel full of Perazzi,Krieghoff & Ljutic trap guns. Last year I bought a Beretta 391 Parallel Trap,put the factory short parallel stock on & what a pleasant surprise. Really pleased,lighter than my 1100 Trap & less recoil.

    Glad to see the A400 parallel for 2012. Not crazy about the blue color but I guess I could learn to live with it.
    Can we get them with an adjustable comb and without the kick off?

    Caesar Guerini is owned by Fabarm not the other way around. It's smart to include Fabarm guns in the Guerinni booth as the American public has been very excepting of the brand. Much more so than Fabarm.

    Joe Cunniffe, General Manager for FABARM USA, told me personally
    that Guerini had purchased FABARMS. I don't believe I misunderstood
    him.

    Sky buster you heard right. With little notice Guerini bought into Fabarms almost exactly a year ago creating the second largest shotgun manufacturer in Italy. This Shot Show is the first since the deal went down and it looks like they are wasting no time getting new guns out to the public. That Sporting auto looks like it has a lot of Guerini influence behind it.

    The link above is off Guerini's official Italian website.

    Can't tell who owns what. "Taking an Equity stake" usually means a smaller entity (Guerini) buys into the bigger entity (Fabarm) to have some input with them.

    It is a Fact That Guerini Bought Out Fabarms several months ago.

    Never was a fan of autos because they always seemed light and whippy. But if someone would come out with an auto that didn't feel like a tooth pick then I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.
