BREDA 12G SEMI AUTO SECTION ONE SHOTGUN.
For one of the older version Breda 12g Semi-Auto shotguns this Section One example is in excellent condition. The ONLY other one I have seen even close let alone any better is one already listed for sale here. That one basically sat in a cupboard most of its life so far!
The bare barrel measures up at 24 ½” and the external multi chokes then add between approx. ½” to 3” plus depending on choke restriction. I CAN supply a full set of brand new chokes, even ported if that ‘floats your boat’! These guns used to be THE FAVOURITE amongst Wild fowlers as well as pigeon and rough shooters, basically because they were SUPERBLY reliable in every and any conditions. Beautifully designed and engineered, strip one down to see just how well made and solid these guns are.
YES, spring recoil operation so not as ‘smooth’ to shoot as modern day gas piston systems but top end Benelli options are still very similar and as such require far less cleaning / maintenance. The stock comes in at a 14 ¼” pull, is all but straight and retains the original Breda hard plastic butt plate though unfortunately there is a small area missing to the side of the toe. These guns also come with washers which can be swapped around to accommodate very light or very heavy loads and also have another nice feature in that the safety can easily swap over for left handed use too.
Last point to make is just to say take a look at the current price of these shotguns now they are available once again in the UK. A LONG way from the budget end in semi-auto shotguns!
