    Has anyone ever handled a “Caesar Guerini” trap gun?

    Take a look at their web site where they show three versions of trap guns both unsingle and O/U combo. http://www.gueriniusa.com They put just about every bell and whistle a trap shooter could want in a trap gun. They are a fairly new company located in Italy and have my attention. If the prices are correct on their web site they are really pricing their guns where many of us can afford to buy a good quality trap gun under $10,000.

    I’m interested in hearing from you and please me tell what you think.

    Bought the Summit for my wife from Bob Schultz Tgt Shotguns. Very nice gun. I shot one at the Grand and thought it was very soft shooter. Contact Bob, he made me a reasonable deal. Jake

    I shot one belonging to a friend. Relatively light gun with surprisingly light recoil and nice balance, lifetime warranty, chrome lined bbls, adjustable trigger, adjustable comb and rib from 60 to 120% P.O.I. For me personally, the only down sides are that it comes only with choke tubes, no drop-out trigger and no release, yet.

    P.S. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Guerini has manufactured guns for several hundred years, but are just now entering the American Target Shotgun arena.

    alfermann...according to the website, release triggers are available. I was looking at them last night. They also have nice accessory packages. I would assume if a buyer is getting a release and a pull trigger they would have to make it to drop out. Perhaps its either or when ordering.

    According to Ken Rucker, Speedbump stockworks, he has installed a number of recoil reducers in them and has nothing but good to say about the guns.

    The triggers are not drop outs, the stock is really simple to remove, it be able to get to the trigger, my son shot one at the Grand,and he loved the Summit model,he ran 25 with very few chips, dust dust dust. he really would like to have one,would of but we bought a MX 10 at state earlier in the yr.
    My only ? would be service, other then that I would have one, then again I still might

    I have inquired about this Target Gun at Jaquas Fine Gun . The manager said
    these are Beretta knockoffs actually . Very close to Beretta . Quality wise
    Same gun . If I want Italian Gun it would be Perrazzi Which I have had many . Wait and see if the prices start rising then you know its a winner . Had a Mach One used one actually
    5 of us from this area had them . No one kept them . Passing fad looking for magic gun . I have K 80 thats Killer gun and Silver Sietz Thats on the mend
    of being a Killer Gun . I wish you could buy and have proper stock and shooting measurements in a Gun when you Buy them .

    Jake & Paul,
    To what attribute of the gun do you ascribe the reduction in apparent recoil to?

    Buz,
    Guerini is a new company, the founder of Guerini is from the Rizzini family. The Guerini guns I’ve seen have certainly been more attractively finished than Rizzini’s of a similar price – more importantly - better machined as well.

    Pat,
    The Guerini guns I’ve seen have had action designs nothing like the Beretta O/U’s – I wonder if the manager at Jaquas was thinking of Rizzini?

    Regards

    Russell

    Regarding service. I added a 410 barrel to my 28 gauge Summit. Took 10 days. Sent my 12 gauge in for annual service. Took 10 days. Try that with any other gun.

    I shot the O/U at the PA State Shoot, and I thought it kicked a little bit too much. It's not that it hurt me, I just thought it slowed me down on the recovery for doubles a bit. Just goes to show you, though, there's nothing magic about this gun, like any other. Some models feel great to some people, while other people disagree. Interestingly, my friend shot the unsingle at the same time, and he thought it kicked, too. Try it for yourself.

    I just bought the Magnus Trap Combo. I purchased it from Barts Sportsworld in Maryland. ( Very nice people to deal with) It really is a beautiful gun. The fit and finish are outstanding. I only have a couple of hundred rounds through it but I am VERY happy so far. I think you would have a hard time getting this much gun for the price.

    Purchased a Summit at the Grand from Gamamiel. Broke 25 srait with the try gun and really like the feel. I was working deal whie we opened the box and when I saw the beautiful wood I was sold. My first new Trap gun ever. I hope that it and I can live up to my expectations.

    Thx for the info Russell.

    KelleyPLK, you've been knocking on the wrong door, "I wish you could buy and have proper stock and shooting measurements in a Gun when you Buy them". Alfermann and Kolar both offer stock fitting on new guns.

    Setterman, "Regarding service. I added a 410 barrel to my 28 gauge Summit. Took 10 days. Sent my 12 gauge in for annual service. Took 10 days. Try that with any other gun". I sent my 90T to Kolar for overhaul and mod. Back in 7 days.

    For the owners of these guns, is there any difference between the models besides wood and engraving choices? Mike

    Actually that is a good deal at 6500.00 that is in Canadian funds and including our Ontario taxes.

    If you consider bringing in one from the US the cost would be 7182.00 just with the taxes and not sure about duty.

    Regards,

    was not aware that was canadian dollars. I am not familiar with the conversion so yes that may be a good deal then.

    So I asked this earlier in this thread, are the only differences between models the upgraded wood and engraving or are there some mechanical differences as well?

    Hi Teleskier,

    Yes the difference on the other models up from the Summit is better wood and engraving. The photo on the website of the Summit is really not a great photo of the wood that is on the firearm. Here is a photo of the one I have here at my store.

    Regards,
    Sam

    I shot one at the Ohio state shoot and I thought the recoil was a little too much. After taking the stock off and inspecting the trigger and other parts I decided that this was not a very good purchase. It just didn't look it was designed to handle a lot of shooting, I could be wrong. Just my opinion.
