The Pathos by F.A.I.R. is available in two different versions, standard and XLight. It’s a balanced and elegant over/under shotgun that thanks to its features and lightweight can be used both for walking hunts and stalking as it is produced in 12, 16, 20, 28 gauge and .410 bore. The name is indicative for a rifle designed for those who have a passion for hunting and want a reliable, refined gun. The details chosen by the hunter will then create a dedicated rifle.
In addition to the various gauges manufactured with dedicated action bodies, the Xlight model features a lighter body machined from Ergal 55 alloy, while the standard version we tested on the field is machined directly from solid forged blocks.
The two versions are easily recognizable. They are also visually distinguished by the bright black color of the rounded body with gold inserts and hand-made engravings of the standard version and nickel-plated body with gold-plated laser engravings for the XLight version.
