Has anybody had extensive experience with Breda shotguns out of Italy?

nope he was talking about Breda.

http://www.tristarsportingarms.com/high ... miauto.htm

I have been looking for a place that sells them but have not found any by me. I was personally interested in the Ermes Nickel which looks like a good alternative to the Benelli Legacy. I know they seem popular in other countries.

Nope, saw one once though! Probably should have stuck arround the auction and watched it sell. It was a O/U .410. It was indeed NOT a Beretta, but....

The only place I have seen them is in a magazine or on the web. I haven't even seen any at gun shows.I was looking at the Astra 20 ga. It looks like a Montrefelto.

Yes, I inherited it from my dad who was a gunsmith. He would take each of us hunting as teens with certain guns. These are the guns that eventually became ours. I've been shooting this Breda(under the name of Kassner Imports) for over 20 years. I like the Rems., Wins. etc., but I'll put my Breda up against anything known to mankind. This is a true skeet gun(and pretty too, I might add.) It is a 3 pc. takedown O/U 12 Gua. 3" Mag.
It has a gold plated trigger with a Double side by side safety. It has a vented rib. This gun was manufactured by hand. It has set screws machined in the manufacturing process where greater stability was needed. The gun was custom engraved and hand checkered. I would guess that it was built in the early part of the 20th century. The gun performs as well as it looks. It is Excellent. I would like to find info and stats on this gun, but haven't had luck. It is the best shotgun that I have fired. A true piece of craftmanship from the past.

My uncle left me a Breda. Exellent gun.

Remington II - If you want to see a Breda sales flyer,circa 1960,E mail me and I'll send you a copy. I think that I have some price lists,too. I think that it was imported Dakin of CA at that time.

I was looking at a Breda once and the dealer said that Breda was Beretta's military arms maker and that they made a few civilian guns at one time.

They are extremely popular in Europe. I have seen a bunch of them in Greece and Italy.

Have seen several models of O/U's and semi's.

They carry a good name there .

I emailed TriStar regarding MSRP pricing on the Breda Grizzly 3.5 magnum shotgun. Here is the reply they sent.

Thank you for your interest in the Grizzly. Price on black is 1420.00, Camo is 1499.00. Available in May. Tristar SA.

Wow..! I think I'll stick with Benelli or Beretta for that price range.

i just matched up the pics from the breda and beretta sites and there is not a thing that is different about them.
the stepped barrel is the same as well as the checkering.
the camo models both use the exact same camo patern
(advantage)

i think that they are the exact same gun, if they were selling those in the states for $500, id buy one for sure!

Have a breda Ermes for about 6 years. Best semi-auto 12 gauge you can buy in my opinion. Light, and good balance for an auto. Really like the fore end which is as slim as an O/U. Can's see why anyone whould use a gas auto when you could have the inertia principle of the breda. I clean it roughly every 200-300 shots and it has failed to cycle properly only twice with perhaps 5000 shots thru it. You simply will not get that kind of reliability with a gas auto even with the regular cleaning they demand. Guys talk about cleaning guns every time they shoot but thats totally unneccessary with a shotgun thats not cycling on gas. Shooting supposed to be a hobby not a chore!. I have compared the breda to a benelli and they are quite simply the same gun. Parts are interchangable. Gunstores will be reluctant to admit that though because most sell the Benelli's and don't wish to admit the 100's more dollars only buy brand name. You get 5 chokes and it holds 4 in the tube and 1 in the chamber which is the practical limit for a pointable gun. Buy one.

I have a 12 gauge semi auto Browning long action Breda.
Inherited it from my Dad. Excellent gun, I think from the '60s.
Has a tendancy to jam occasionally.
Has anyone got one or parts for sale....particularly a barrel for the
Breda semi auto?
