Thread: Guerini

  1. #1

    Guerini

    Been looking at 20 bore sporters with long barrels, and wondering if anybody would care to share their experiences with Guerinis ?
    Seems to see quite a few for sale that are nearly new, which makes ye wonder.

    When you say long barrels I take it you mean 32 inch ?
    i owned a guerini 32 inch 20 bore top spec stunning gun untill a year ago
    i sold it on because some bad days on the game one day I'd shoot like a hero
    followed by two days crap for no given reason
    on the clays wouldn't be a problem just shot well with it
    nothing wrong with the gun just lost my confidence on game with it

    I now shoot a beretta 686 with 30 inch barrels which is fine for everything
    ​ regards pete

    Pete, was thinking 30" or 32", I like light 32" barrels.
    Wondered if there was any comparison to be drawn in feel/handling with either Beretta or Browning/Miroku ?

    The only thing with browning / miroku is I find that most models shot low for me
    the beretta is a higher shooting gun normally
    I own a 28 bore 686 a 20 bore 686 and my main dt 10 competion gun with near as dam it
    Identical sight picture
    I haven't had to alter any of these stocks so a real bonus

    as for the 32 inch barrels I've shot these on my twelve bore for the last fifteen years
    from competition clays to driven days on game with no problems
    but if your not going to be shooting serious competition
    personally a 30 inch is much more versatile
    ​hope this helps. Regards pete

    very nice handling guns,always been a beretta man but this time I thought I`d try a guerini. glad I did my scores have improved massively..... really starting to go up in price now so maybe a good second hand one would be a wise move

    Is this some sort of Fox specie I'm not aware of????

    So I'm sort of hearing "more akin to Beretta" ?
    Beretta's shoot high for me, my O/Us are all Miroku, I have an MK70 28" 20g and an MK60 32" 12g. I have a hankering for a longer (and sadly I must admit prettier) 20g, but the Berettas I have shot with just didn't work for me.
    It will boil down to trying out the gun as ever.
