Fausti Stefano SRL has donated a Fausti “Classico” Side-by-Side Shotgun in 20 gauge to be auctioned off here at the SCI Convention Friday evening.
The hammer gun has always fascinated and attracted the more traditional hunters and collectors of fine guns. Fausti remains today one of the few manufacturers to produce these gorgeous guns for their passionate followers.
The ultimate model is called “Classico.” It features newly designed external hammers finished entirely by hand as well as the engraving, a mix of traditional and modern pattern harmoniously engraved in “bulino” style and signed by the author, the Master Stefano Muffolini.
The “Classico” that Fausti has donated is a 20 gauge version, featuring 28-inch barrels, improved cylinder/modified fixed chokes, selected wood with rubber pad, oil finished, hand-checkering, bone and charcoal exclusive finishing and leather case.
Beauty and harmony -- these are the proper words to describe this remarkable example of Italian craftmanship by Fausti. For more information, visit the Fausti booth here at the Convention, or visit www.faustiarms.com online.
Estimated value: $16,000.
