Benelli 828U

This new over-under shotgun represents something rather rare in the world of sporting shotguns: the new and unusual. Of course, all gunmakers continually innovate in shotgun design and manufacture, but most changes tend to be incremental. The 828U offers…

Browning Heritage

With the arrival of the B725 in 2011 it seemed that the long, celebrated life of Browning’s 525 line of guns would come to an end. With a new, slimmer action and consistently good sales since…

Beretta SV10 Perennia 20 bore

Gunmakers are often criticised for attempting to reinvent the wheel with each of their new releases, each increase in model number hiding a tiny change in designs which have been around for over 100 years. Beretta’s SV10…

Perazzi HPX RSR Ultimate

As I stated in my review of the MX8 (June 2013), there really is no better way of entering into the world of bespoke guns than with a Perazzi. These guns are astonishingly successful on…

Browning B725

Given the reputation of the Browning 525 that’s no mean feat. The B525 is well tried and tested. Proven by the fact that it and the other models that preceded it have needed…

Secondhand Browning B725

When Browning introduced the B725 shotgun a little over two years ago, the reaction among a number of shooters was to ask why they bothered? This was not so much a criticism as an acknowledgment…

Hatsan Escort Magnum Extreme

The semi-automatic shotgun — or self-loading shotgun if you wish to be very British — is an interesting concept. When viewed in a dispassionate way simply as a multi-shot firearm it is very efficient and…

Lincoln Premier Wildfowler
