Fausti: Four Locks locking system for hunting and competition shotguns

The mere mention of Fausti hunting or competition shotguns will inevitably evoke images of fine, exceptionally elegant guns with graceful lines in the minds of enthusiasts. But one should not forget about their reliable and innovative manufacturing quality.

Beyond their unquestionable beauty, these guns are characterized by a robust and reliable mechanical heart, combining a classic look with technologically advanced processing methods. The receivers are machined from solid steel stock, then processed with machinery and tools and finished by hand to guarantee precision and robustness for long-term and intensive use whether hunting or competing.

Features of the Fausti Four Locks system

The Fausti Four Locks system provides lateral locking as well as longitudinal mechanical resistance between barrels and receiver, ensuring stability and durability to the gun.

The durability and stability of the over/under shotguns is guaranteed by the patented Fausti’s Four Locks locking system. 

It features four locking points: one pair of classic lugs machined into the block of the barrels to lock the barrels and the receiver in vertical alignment; and a second pair of lugs fitted to the internal sides of the receiver. This provides lateral locking as well as longitudinal mechanical resistance between barrels and receiver, creating a right-angled dual-locking system. 

Thanks to its Four Locks system, Fausti has significantly improved the quality of its locking system for over/under shotguns, capable of resisting the heaviest of strains created by the fired cartridge, including high-performance ammunition. 

Having visited the company's headquarters in Marcheno, Italy, we were lucky enough to have the mechanical concept of the Four Locks system explained to us by the designers themselves. We will leave you to discover this practical explanation of the Fausti system for yourselves, which offers both hunters and shooters alike the chance to experience unique guns where every single component is built to the highest, unmistakeable quality.
