Barrels and choke tubes
The barrels in Chrome-Moly steel are drilled and reamed to improve elasticity and, therefore, ballistic performance.
They also come with an impeccable finish thanks to a double polishing process: by hand first and then by robot.
We offer different types of top ribs and sights depending on the use the shotgun
is intended for. Our standard field shotguns come with ventilated top ribs while our high quality field models come with traditional solid tapered ribs. Both ribs are filed and provided with brass beads. Our competition shotguns come with white beads mounted on 10-mm tapered top ribs. The longitudinal filing of the ribs allows shooters to better control their aiming positions.
On request our barrels can undergo the “Steel Shot” test.
Our 12ga barrels feature a new bore geometry called “Maxisbore”. The new bore has also been combined with a new forcing cone between chambers and bore called “Duecon”. Both “Maxisbore” and “DueCon” make it possible to increase pellet velocity, reduce misshaping and decrease felt recoil.
On request our shotguns in light alloy can be provided with our special “RAYE” barrels specifically studied for woodcock hunting in the woods. The top tube comes with an interchangeable “Maxischoke” choke tube while the last 14 cm of the lower tube feature a special radius, which generates a very wide, even and homogenous shot pattern even at 8-10 meters.
Along with the “Maxisbore” project we have also introduced our “Maxischoke” interchangeable choke tubes.
They are longer than the “Selectachoke” models. Their constriction angle is smoother to the advantage of the shot pattern. Every choke tube in the Caesar Guerini line (“Selectachokes” and “Maxichokes”) is made of special steel alloy and is extremely resistant. Different constrictions are available for our field and competition shotguns.
