Mannlicher Renato Gamba Principessa 28 Ga SXS Cased Shotgun – Excellent!

This elegant little 28 gauge by Renato Gamba was made on a 28 gauge frame and was offered only as a special option before 1989. Scarce to begin with, they’re especially hard to come by because those that have them, keep them. It features 27.5” barrels with IC & IM chokes (using blade gauge; barrels marked *** and *), 2-7/8” chambers, matted rib with white front and mid beads, single trigger, extractor, engraved case colored frame, very fine hand checkered walnut stocks with straight grip and beavertail forend and solid recoil pad. LOP is 13-7/8” and drops are 2-1/8” & 1-5/8” and it weighs in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces. It retains about 98% original finish on exposed surfaces (there’s a little more loss under the forend) while the bores are perfect mirrors and the stocks are completely sound with only a handful of handling marks to the right of the upper tang. It’s 100% on-face and lock-up is tight as a tick with zero movement and the top lever comes to rest well to the right of center. The trunk case is in better than excellent condition with only a little scuffing here and there and sound stitching and hardware throughout. A very nice little princess that should be a joy in the field. If you have questions please email us at This will be listed for auction on Gun Broker the evening of September 21st.
