    I want to publicly thank some fine folks who helped my finish this stunning Caesar Guerini 3 barrel set in 20/28/410. First, the folks at the CG custom shop who helped me get the iron for this fine shotgun. It’s the 32” barrel Summit Limited with case hardened receiver. Next, our own Mike Mann of White Creek Gunstocks who helped me acquire some beautiful myrtlewood for the gun stock and three forearms. Finally, Kelly and Clara Clairmont of Montana Custom Guns in Polson, MT who duplicated a stock for me and did the checkering on it and the 3 forearms.

    I think it came out all right!

    radeck.What is the weight of your gun? I am assuming the weight is spot on regardless of the barrel/gauge you are shooting. Very nice. Recoil must be almost non-existant, especially with the 28 and .410 bore barrels. Very, very nice. Enjoy it.............Rob G.

    Saw this beauty in person yesterday afternoon. The contrast between the case-colored receiver and the Myrtlewood was stunning. Outstanding workmanship with each of the forends having a little flair all their own while working well with the stock.

    If anyone else needs multiple forend blanks with a single stock blank for applications like this three-barrel set, we're happy to oblige.

    Thanks radeck for sharing your pride and joy,

    Mike Mann

    The respective weights are indeed quite close:
    the 20 ga = 7 lbs. 14.2 oz,
    the 28 ga = 7 lbs. 12.8 oz,
    & the 410 = 7 lbs. 15.1 oz.
    Might use a bit of lead tape to equalize them. Shot 16 yd trap using the .410 with a skeet choke. Broke a bit over half - enjoyed it!

    you truly have some artisans that worked on that set. It is beautiful. Hope you enjoy shooting it as much as I enjoyed seeing the beautiful woodwork.
