IGI 12G OVER AND UNDER SHOTGUN.

12G Over and Under, Single Selective Trigger, Boxlock Ejector from IGI Domino. Please see comments at the bottom. This COULD be their ‘Olympic Trap’ model bearing in mind chokes are approx.

The fixed chokes at full and extra full will give an extra tight pattern for those longer shots. Barrels are 29 3/8” (745mm) long with 2 ¾” (70mm) chambers and a ½” (12mm) Fully Ventilated Top rib. Jointing ribs are vented too and everything is finished off with double sighting beads.

This gun is basically the exact same gun as others I have had through. ALL from apparently different makers. One being a BSA Model 600, another a Bettinsoli and a third was an SKB from Japan. Self-same action, stock dimensions, timber, palm swell, chequering…the lot. The actions have a striking resemblance to Merkel too so. ??? WHO KNOWS?

A ‘Scallop backed’ action is ALWAYS a nice feature, ESPECIALLY with this PROFUSE English Bouquet Scroll engraving. The third bite cross bolt mechanism is also an immensely strong design. As said, this is a single selective trigger with a small inconspicuous switch over lever mounted within the trigger guard.

Stock length is 14 5/8” (372mm). That is from the inside of the curved recoil butt pad, parallel with the comb. It finishes the gun at an overall length of 47 ¼” (1200mm) and a straight 8 lbs (3.625 Kg). Timber is quite well patterned with a decent colour contrast in the grain.
Overall this gun DOES look pretty good. Especially with the matching vent holes to mimic those in the barrel jointing ribs. You can actually see right through!
‘Fox Cut’ or Skip chequering just completes what is a rather nice gun.

Just had an email come through from a Barry T with the following information. AGAIN, MANY THANKS to him for the input.

Hi Robin. These IGI ( Ital Guns International ) guns come from Italy in the ’70s to 80’s. This model being a mid-range Olympic Trap gun originally would have had 3/4 x full.  Just 1 of many good gun makers based in Val Trompia in the Italian side of the Alps. In the Bracia region of Northern Italy. Regards Barry
