HA1399 Caesar Guerini Maxum Sporting Combo, Left Hand, Adjustable Comb, O/U, 20 Ga., 2 3/4", 32"MC Bbls, 28 Ga., 2 3/4", 32"MC Bbls., .410 Bore 2 1/2" & 3", 32"MC Bbls., (Used 99+%) $9,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Caesar Guerini says:  The Maxum Sporting is truly a stunning over/under shotgun. The deep relief gothic scroll hand finished engraving on the receiver, side plates, and fore-end assembly make this sporting gun unique among others on the clays course. The handwork and design are from the studios of the world renowned Italian engraving house, Bottega Incisioni C. Giovanelli. The coin finish frame is painstakingly hand polished. Balancing the beauty of the deeply sculpted engraving is a deluxe grade of Turkish walnut, featuring precision cut 26 lines-per-inch checkering and a natural oil finish, hand rubbed to a sheen that enhances the highly figured wood grain. * The adjustable trigger moves up to 1/2" to accommodate different hand sizes and incorporates an external adjustment for take-up. * A Boss style ejector system with oversized cams ensures positive shell ejection and disc retainers provide strength.
* Each gun is carefully balanced approximately 1cm in front of the hinge pin to offer more stability than an upland model. * A stock wrench included for removing the stock without removing the recoil pad. * Each Maxum Sporting comes with six CCP (Crowned Conical Parallel) competition extended chokes (CYL, SK, 2-IC, LM, M) (410 has one IC and a Full) tuned for sporting clays with: conical-parallel interior design, crowned muzzle, polished interior, knurling, and thread design that prevents them from coming loose during use. Plastic choke case included. * A select grade Turkish walnut stock with a traditional high luster oil finish and palm swell on the pistol grip. Stocks are 14.75 inches long to allow for proper fitting. * The barrels have ventilated center ribs for rapid cooling, 10mm parallel target top rib and double beads. * A hard case is included with every Caesar Guerini sporting over/under.

Hero's Arms Says:  This Caesar Guerini was manufactured in 2009, sold new by Hero's Arms in 2014 with an upgraded left-hand stock, sent back to Caesar Guerini in 2018 for a pit stop and hardly used since.  It has had a very sophisticated after market adjustable comb made by artifacts-arms installed which allows for very precise adjustments.  Upward movement can be adjusted 1/2" high and anywhere in-between. Downward adjustment below the standard height of the comb before it was cut, is 1/8” lower.  Side to side adjustment (cast on or cast off) 1/4” in either direction left or right from the center position.  The comb can be canted/angled left or right. The comb can be tilted forward or backward 7 degrees. .In 20 and 28 Gauge it comes with M/LM/IC/IC/SK/C extended choke tubes, in 410 bore it comes with F/IM/IC/SK/SK/C, others are available from Caesar Guerini.    It is in excellent, almost as-new condition.  The Maxum Combo is now a special order gun with a MSRP of $13,742, so, relatively speaking, this is a bargain.

HA2827 Remington 121SB, MO-SKEET-O, Routledge Barrel, Pump, 22LR Shot Cartridge, (Refinished), $1,495

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Hero's Arms Says:  This Remington 121 MO-SKEET-O was probably built in November, 1946.  It has been refinished, re-blued and engraved with a Mosquito.  It has a Routledge barrel, the first 11 1/2 inches are .22 bore, the last 12 inches are .402 bore.  The Routledge barrel produces very consistent patterns, with few flyers, because the shot cloud has 12 inches to stabilize before exiting the barrel.  It has a tubular magazine which holds 14 rounds.  I had the Mosquito engraved whilst living in rural Quebec, where the mosquitoes are large.  When guest would come over for the evening I would get this gun out and tell them they were in charge of shooting the mosquitoes when they flew by.  It comes with a Cracker Launcher for back yard skeet fun.  Good for small varmints (also inside buildings) as well.  A unique item.

HA2773 Caesar Guerini Revenant Field, Left Hand, O/U, 20M-30MC, New-In-Case, $13,245

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Caesar Guerini Says: Fine shotguns have always been the synthesis of art and function. Over the last 100 years some of the most iconic craftsmen have spent hundreds of hours hand sculpting steel, perfecting mechanical excellence and turning rare pieces of walnut into perfectly checkered stocks. Master engravers dedicate weeks of labor to turn polished metal surfaces of a shotgun into masterworks of art. The end result is the highest form of artistry and craftsmanship in firearm manufacturing. As wonderful and fascinating as these firearms are, they are little more than an unapproachable luxury item that is out of reach for the average hunter.

What if a company could use modern technology to make a shotgun that had the same qualities? That is the concept behind the new Revenant by Caesar Guerini. By the use of the most modern production technology and clever engineering Caesar Guerini has created a shotgun that is one-fifth the price of shotguns featuring the same features made one at a time by hand.

The Revenant starts with a round body action famous for its graceful curves and ads radiused side plates to further enhance the lines of the action. The fore-end is graced with a winged fore-end iron and inletted escutcheon surrounding the push-button release, both the hallmarks of the highest quality shotguns. A long trigger guard blends into a swept back pistol grip to make the profile of the Revenant what can best be described as “racy”. The barrels feature a tapered solid top rib and mid rib.

To further the goal of making an extraordinary firearm, Caesar Guerini turned to a world leader in fine engraving Bottega C. Giovanelli and their Director and Master engraver Dario Cortini. His vision was to create a new and original motif for the Revenant utilizing organic forms instead of a common variation on scroll. To this end he drew a design of maple leaves and branches that are both elegant and evoke a hunting theme.

Hero's Arms Says:  Spectacular wood and engraving. Just check out the photos. The solid ribs keep hunting debris out. What a fine hunting gun, also for Skeet and /sporting clays.

HA2652 Syren (Caesar Guerini) Magnus Gold Ladies Sporting O/U, 20 Ga., 2 3/4", 30"MC Bbls, New-In-Case, $5,775*

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Syren Says:  The Syren Magnus Sporting is as elegant as it is efficient at breaking targets. As a competition grade target gun no performance features have been left out. From high performance barrels and chokes to a precision tuned trigger, this model is as appropriate for the world class competitor as it is the novice. Esthetically the side plate action elongates the lines of the shotgun, offering a graceful appearance. To further enhance the beauty of the Syren Magnus Sporting, a one of a kind engraving motif was created featuring a contemporary twist on the classic bouquet and scroll pattern. The action is completed by a hand polished coin finish that is coated with our proprietary Invisalloy™ that guards against rust and tarnishing. To complement the metal work, the stock is crafted from a deluxe grade of Turkish Walnut with a semi-gloss oil finish to bring out the beauty of the wood. The final result is a shotgun that is as captivating and competitive as its owner.

Hero's Arms Says:  This Syren Magnus Gold Sporting is an exquisite ladies shotgun. Built in 2015, unlike the current models, it has gold enhanced roses on the receiver making it even more attractive. It has beautiful wood and engraving, and with its 13 7/8" Length of Pull, 3.1/2" Trigger Reach, Monte Carlo, 7 degree Pitch, 1/4" cast off at heel and 3/8" cast off at toe it is truly made for a woman's shoulder. It comes with six Selectachoke completion chokes in Modified, Light Modified, Improved Cylinder (2), Skeet and Cylinder constrictions.  You won't find a nicer gun.

HA2341 Caesar Guerini Ellipse Curve, O/U, 20 Ga., 2 3/4" & 3", 28"MC Bbls., New-In-Case, $7,050*

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

Caesar Guerini Says:  The world’s best shotguns can cost as much as a quarter of a million dollars and take years to make. The engraving alone can account for up to one third of the price. The result is a shotgun that combines art and function in a way that few man-made objects can match. As wonderful and fascinating as these firearms are, they are little more than an unapproachable luxury item that is out of reach for the average hunter. What if a company could use modern technology to make a shotgun that had the same qualities? That is the concept behind the new Ellipse Curve.

The Curve is based off of Caesar Guerini’s Ellipse round body action. This type of action not only provides a clean uncluttered look, but also makes for a trim profile. It’s these trim lines that make the Curve a responsive and natural pointing bird gun. Combine responsive handling with Caesar Guerini’s reputation for reliability and you have the makings of a world-class shotgun. However, that is not the whole story with the Curve. The engraving is also groundbreaking in quality. The execution is of a level that has only recently become achievable through the most cutting edge technology. It is this combination of art and technology that allows the Curve to reach this level of craftsmanship at a fraction of the cost.

Hero's Arms Says:  This is a beautifully engraved Caesar Guerini Ellipse Curve, only available from Caesar Guerini Elite dealers.  It has 28", 2 3/4" & 3", barrels with solid top and mid ribs, 5 nickel plated Selecta choke tubes in Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet constrictions. Other are available from Caesar Guerini.  I believe the lady depicted on the bottom of the receiver is Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, but I have never seen her in person.  It weighs six pounds nine ounces.  All in all this is an elegant hunting gun, useful also for Skeet and Sporting Clays.

HA1894 Browning Belgian Superposed Grade V (Diana) 2 Barrel Combo, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 28"IC/IC, and 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 26 3/8" SK/SK, Cased, (Used 99%), Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

This Browning Grade V (Diana) combo, first sold in 1956, is in exceptional condition.  There are a few very minor dings in the wood but the bluing and engraving are near mint.  It came originally with a 28 inch barrel set, barrel 1, choked Full and Modified.  These barrels were later opened up to Improved Cylinder and Improved Cylinder (Briley choke tubes could be installed if desired to get back to Full and Modified).  The second barrel set, 26 3/8" in Skeet and Skeet constrictions, barrel 2, was installed later by Browning and numbered to the gun.  A Limbsaver recoil pad has been mounted but the original Browning pad is in the case.  The Length of Pull with the original pad is the correct 14 1/4", with the Limbsaver it is 14 1/2". It has a Prince of Wales (Round Knob) Long Tang configuration. The wood is nicely figured. The Browning case is in good condition and contains the original owner’s manual numbered to the gun.  The deeply incised engraving by Browning Master Engraver Doyen is exceptionally beautiful - I personally prefer the Grade V deeply incised engraving to the earlier and later Diana styles.  I shot a round of skeet with the 26 3/8" barrels and the gun functioned flawlessly.  This is a real collector’s dream, which could also be used for hunting, skeet or sporting clays.

HA1301 Browning Pre-War Superposed, Midas Level Upgrade, Double Single Triggers, English Stock, 12 Ga., 2 3/4" 30"IC/M Bbls., Cased, $6,995

For a full page of  photographs and a detailed description click the photo above or click here.

The receiver for this Superposed was probably manufactured in 1932, but it was first sold in 1936 for $59.46.  As it left the factory it was a standard grade with specially ordered Improved Cylinder and Modified choking, and twin single triggers. (Browning Factory Letter) Unlike most double trigger guns the front trigger will fire first the bottom then reset itself and fire the top barrel,  The rear trigger will fire the top barrel, then one must use the front trigger to fire the bottom barrel.  One can also use it just like a normal double trigger gun. It has a solid rib and the "horseshoe" bracket on the front of the forearm, which distinguishes it from later versions of the Superposed.  In 1984 it was purchased by Thomas Grogg, an engraver, who engraved it and put in solid 18 Karat gold inlays and lines.  On the left side of the receiver is a Mallard, the right side is a Canada Goose. On the pre-1936 Midas Superposed there were pigeons on both sides of the receiver, so this is not a copy or an attempt to fake being a Midas Grade, but a Midas level upgrade.  After it was engraved in 1984 it was reblued and refinished by a gunsmith who formerly ran the Browning refinishing shop. There was some cracking in the finish of the stock, as was normal for Brownings of that era, so it was refinished with an oil finish by Klaus Hiptmayer who also refreshed the engraving. There is probably more than a thousand dollars worth of gold in this gun.  Grogg's signature is on the lower right side of the receiver just behind the pivot pin.  It has two recoil pads, a Pachmayr Old English, and a Browning Vent Rubber pad.  I purchased it from Grogg. The gun has had about 200 rounds fired since 1984
