Upland hunters: If you’re looking for one shotgun that can handle it all, this 16 gauge FAIR O/U is it. And at $1,199, it’s a steal.

FAIR stands for Fabbrica Armi Isidoro Rizzini, and Italian company that has been around  since 1971. Since 1999, various importers have been bought them into the US and today it looks Cabela’s is at least one of the companies selling them.

A lot of the modern 16 gauge O/Us that you see are built on 12 gauge frames. This can make these shotguns heavy and clunky. So it’s nice to see that FAIR’s 16 gauge O/Us are built on true sixteen gauge frame.

Here’s more about the shotgun from the seller’s listing:

I don’t follow Italian sidelock shotguns all that much. That being said, something tells me that this nearly-new Piotti that Cabela’s just listed must be a good deal. William Larkin Moore has a price of $36,600 for one of these brand new.

Here’s more on it from Cabela’s site: This beautiful lightweight gun has been very lightly fired, perhaps only once. The bores are bright and smooth. We wiped cosmoline off the muzzle and breechface. The action is fully engraved. The wood is very nice. It shows virtually no wear. The initial plate in the buttstock has been engraved with initials. It comes in a fitted hard case.
