My opinion is that shotguns are less technique
and more feeling. Therefore I would like to refer
to an email exchange instead of explaining it
Hope you have some time out to be able to reply to me, I guess your a busy man. My question is... I recently went to a shoot where one of my collegues was using a Berretta 56E, which he explained was not made any more. But, It looked beautiful and it is up for sale... Is there anything else you can tell me about this model? Many thanks Stewart Colgrave.
Your friend is right! The 56 E is an old model made probably around 30 years ago. I'll be honest with you.... that is the gun (and I still have it) with which I started shooting in 1971! Mine is a 20 ga. and it's still working properly and is not showing any sign of elderness! To tell you more, my son Lorenzo, now 12 y.o., has just started shooting that gun again. I owned that gun for 27 years now and I'm more than happy with it! After that model (the S56/57/58) there has been the S680 series which comes from the same concept and it is still on the market today with the S682/S686/S687 and so on. The quality is not in question and the spare parts availa-bility is still very good. I wouldn't pay a fortune for that gun but I would be surely interested as it's definitely a beautiful gun. The silver action, the engraving, the gun itself are surely worth to be considered. I hope this answer to your question.
Yours sincerely Luca Scribani Rossi
