F.lli Piotti, manufacturers of elegant guns for 50 years, enchant us with their unique, personalized and perfect shotguns and rifles. Here are some of their new models for 2018 that were also presented at IWA in Nuremberg last march.
With the 557 model series, CZ has taken a big leap into the 21st century. These mid-market repeating rifles have an unmatched quality/price ratio and embody the Czech company's great attention to those with more traditional tastes.
The Scout Rifle series adds a new powerful chambering. The .450 Bushmaster version features a stainless steel finish, a lightweight synthetic stock and a conspicuous muzzle brake to reduce recoil and blast.
It is not always necessary to add features and details to propose something interesting. The Spanish company Bergara knows this well and this year it introduced an essential but interesting hunting rifle, the B-14 Ridge.
