    Called a Breda. company once owned part of Benelli.

    The guns are similar to a SBE2, but so much smother (did not even know it was possible.) spoke with the importer, and they are hand made. ribs are hand laid so they actually shoot dead on POA. gun will even eat some old rios that i have that will not feed in any other gun. even has a low rib option like the original H&K.

    I wouldn't say new. I shot one at a big sporting clays shoot in May of 2015. A few of the top shooters are sponsored by them and do quite well with their guns. I felt the gun I tried was too light but it functioned very well.

    I understand they are relatively new to the U.S. market, what I was stating is Breda has been making firearms since the 1920's and has had shotguns on the market in Europe since the 1950's. They are not new to gun manufacturing.

    There are no $1500 shotguns in the world that can be considered "hand-made".

    Only the very naive believes that gun is hand-made. I guess it depends on your definition of "hand-made". It's undoubtedly hand-assembled...as are all guns...but to believe each part of that shotgun is carved out of a block of steel or aluminum or plastic or wood by a man with a hacksaw and a mill file would not be reality.

    These Breda Grizzly's have been sitting in the "crap guns" racks at my Cabelas for over a year now, unpurchased. I've hefted it a few times and worked the action, it seemed nothing special, didn't hold my attention as much as the old $200 model 12 sitting next to it.
    Wakeman did a review on another Breda, the damasco, and it didn't fare too well.

    Did the model 12 get a new home?

    There seems to be a following of pigeon shooters across the pond , that love them !
    I've always thought the Breda's were the first Beretta Auto's as their look alikes seem to be 303ish !

    IMO, care should be taken when using this cat as a reference given his history of contradictions and general duplicity.
