Here’s another nice 28 gauge double barrel shotgun that just popped up on the market. This one is a Renato Gamba Principessa with double triggers, longish bbls (27+”) and a long, straight-gripped stock (15″ LOP).
Renato Gamba is an Italian gunmaker located Gardone V.T. – the heart of Italian gunmaking. The family has been making guns since the second world war, and today they’re well known in competitive circles for their O/Us. I think the little double shown here was made in the late ’80s or early ’90s, and it looks like a standard, A&D boxlock. It looks like a solid gun — and a great deal.
