Haenel Jaeger 10

Haenel is one of those gunmakers that have never really been a familiar name

the Suhl gunmaking region…

In 2003 Browning brought out the B525 and at the time it represented the latest phase in the development of the company’s Miroku-built models. The gun had some subtle yet…

Miroku MK 60 Sporting Grade 5

One of the very great pleasures of reviewing shotguns (aside from the obvious) is the experience of visiting Elderkin and Son in Spalding. Not just because I am sure of a comfy spot on the…

Mossberg MVP Scout combo

I tested the Mossberg Predator a few years ago and was impressed with the price and performance of the rifle, so now it is the turn of the Scout model. The Scout rifle ethos…

Benelli 828U 12-bore

With this series of guns, Benelli has cast aside convention. A newcomer to over-and-under guns, the company has previously been more concerned with the manufacture of semi-automatic shotguns, an area where it also broke the mould with…

AYA No.2 28 bore

Spanish gunmaker Aguirre y Aranzabal (AYA) admits that “a true work of art does not simply appear out of thin air”. The more cynical amongst you might chuckle at this seemingly tacit admission that much of the…

Webley & Scott

Having sold a lot of Webley & Scott 900 series shotguns over the last few years, I hold them in high regard. So high, in fact, that I bought a 920 game gun for my…

Webley & Scott Xocet

Both my shooting partner, Paul, and I were intrigued to find out what the new, affordable Xocet from Webley & Scott would be like. Coming from a famous stable with a background of solid, dependable…

AYA Premium 20-bore

I started reviewing shotguns for Shooting Times in 2006, but now I feel the time has come to hand over to another, younger enthusiast. The years seem to have  flown by and have been interesting…

Beretta 690 Field I

It is a natural human instinct to have favourites even when we are told we really shouldn’t. Though you might happily wear a smile and tell your difficult teenage daughter that of course she’s your favourite child…

Winchester XPR .243

Winchester has always been the symbol of American rifle-making but, as with Browning, manufacture transferred to Japan under the Browning, Winchester, Miroku banner. This particular gun is actually made in Portugal and is another one of the…

Rizzini RB EM 16-bore

Rizzini is a gunmaker steadily making inroads into the British guntrade. It has some very attractive models at good value-for-money prices. This is my favourite in the range: the Rizzini RB EM 16-bore . The RB…

Perazzi Ribless Game

You might be forgiven for heaving a sigh at the sight of yet another Italian over-under on these review pages. But it is rather difficult to ignore the fact our European cousins are responsible for much…

Lincoln Vogue 20-bore game gun

Based on a limited edition shotgun with the same name from the early 1980s, the new version of the Lincoln Vogue over-and-under game gun is placed in the sub-£1,000 sector of the market. But what…

Browning T-Bolt synthetic .22LR

Straight-pull rifles are not for everyone. The operation of the bolt as a straight pull directly back to you is very fast and smooth, and none more so than in the small Browning T-Bolt rimfire…

Fausti Italyco SLX

In terms of exotic exports of luxury goods, it would be fair to say Italy has something of a stranglehold on the global consciousness. From the ultimate in sports cars from the likes of Ferrari, Maserati…
