    I am interested in the Caesar Guerini Summit O/U Trap gun 12g and would appreciate anyones' personal experience with the gun and approx. prices paid for it new.
    My previous thread was in regards to the Caesar Guerini Summit Sporting model.
    My reflection to this model was because of saving money.
    Is it worth saving an extra $1000-1500.00 to purchase the Sporting model vs the Trap Gun????
    I have presently a Winchester Selct Energy Trap and have not been particually comfortable with it.
    I have only been shooting trap for about 6 months and really enjoy it, especially when breaking birds.
    Thank You

    Hartman, I have been shooting a Summit trap for about a year and really like it. I can't comment on the difference between my gun and your o/u, but I think in the long run you will be better off getting the gun you really want; even if you have to wait a little while longer to get it. I was hesitant to spend the money on a gun that is fairly new on the market, but I have been very happy. Best of luck on a great gun--Shoot good

    They strike me as light. I do like the looks but there is something about the weight and weight distribution that doesn't appeal to me.

    There are a number of owners on this site that sing the praise of the gun so take one for a test drive. Only you will know if the gun is right for you.

    I have a Summit Trap combo. Do they feel light? Yes but they are not. The balance is so good it take away from the weight. The Unsingle will feel lighter then the O/U.
    As for recoil it is very soft. Even with 3 dram loads. I have use the O/U for sporting clays. Just raise the rib and lower the comb. This gun is a very nice shooter.
    I see that Krieghoff just came out with a high rib sporter. Look close to there trap gun but the rib is lower.
    I had a Winchester Select Energy trap. Good gun but not for me. I sold it for a Browning XT. Much better and still have it. Again it not the feel for me and I shoot my CG much better. I think it's the high rib better balance and lighter feel that makes the hole package.
    I like my CG and I would buy another. I been think of getting a sporter as soon as my work picks up.

    I have been shooting a 34/32 Summit Combo since last March. I had been shooting a BT-99 Golden Clays and a Ultra XT for Doubles. I went to the combo in an attempt to increase my doubles scores.

    I like the combo very much. The gun is well balanced and there is little recoil even when shooting Nitro's for 'caps. The high rib on the unsingle is great for me as I do not have to look down on the rib. Just pull it up and the sight picture is there.

    No complaints so far. My handicap and doubles scores showed good improvement.

    I'll be sending the gun in for it's first free "pit stop" next week.

    I would give Bob Schultz a call. He has shot the gun and deals in about every major high grade gun. Bob is as honest as they come and will give you an honest, educated opinion. I think they are a well made gun but I have not shot one.

    I have a Guerini Magnus Sporting Limited 12ga and a Magnus Sporting 20ga. Neither one is too light. They just feel that way because of great balance. (both ar 30").

    They have excellent workmanship. I will be buying a Magnus or Summit Trap Combo to replace my Winchester Model 21 Trap.

    I think CG's are outstanding guns

    I have a few Caesar Summit guns, a 12 ga. Summit Trap Combo, 12 ga. Summit Sporting, a 20/28 ga. Summit Sporting Combo. All beautiful guns to shoot in their respective sports. Many people comment with high accolades for the guns, as I am one. Each of them have there place, if your going to shoot trap, keep saving your money and get the Trap model. The Sporting guns are very flat shooting. I tried to shoot trap with my sporting model at first, but that was just plain frustrating. I ended up purchasing the Trap combo to shoot trap with, best move I made for my trap game. I do like the high rib trap model, it keeps my head up and on the barrel, it stops me from peeking to see the target break.

    I shot an Unsingle this last year and I have to say I was very impressed with it. For the price I don't think you can do better for a combo.

    As one who traded his Perazzi and purchased 2 Guerinis, one of them a trap O/U, I do not feel like I have given up anything. One suggestion...when you buy the Guerini, put a Dead Mule 7 -8 oz recoil reducer in the buttstock. I prefer the balance this way, as well as the extra weight. I've done this to both of my Guerinis and am very, very happy. Ditto on recommending Bob Schultz.

    I have no special opinion on the CG, but it is a beautiful thing.....

    The best shotgunner in the World shoots a Perazzi MX2000S.

    The second best shotgunner in the World shoots a Beretta 391 Semi Auto.

    I think its more about the shooter than the gun....

    The only advantage Perazzi has over the Guerini is the drop out
    trigger assembly. But your paying about three grand extra for the
    convience. The Summit trap is right up there with the best of em'.

    I waited and waited until I was able to trade my Beretta 682 gold E combo in for the right price on a CG Magnus trap unsingle and I love it, the coin finish and gold birds and very nice wood really gets comments on the range. I haven't quite gotten my scores back up yet it takes a little to get use to the high rib and get it set up correctly for you.

    I sold my first Caesar Guerini and regretted it, I now have another New one with Factory Release triggers and shooting it extremely well, filled the stock cavity with lead shot for more weight and balance, you will not be disappointed
    with this gun.
