Barrett has a surprise for you: shotguns. And not just any shotguns, these are highly adorned, classic side-by-sides and over-unders sold under the Barrett Sovereign name. To start, there are two models with single-selective triggers offered in 12, 20 and 28 gauges, and they are stocked in AAA-grade Turkish walnut. The Albany is an over-under with an open Prince of Wales grip, while the Beltrami is a straight-grip side-by-side. Both are round-body boxlocks with well-fitted false sideplates, and the receivers and the plates have full-coverage English scroll engraving. Barrels on the Fausti Stefano-made guns include 26", 28" or 30" lengths, and they come with five choke tubes in a Barrett-branded case. Go past the suppressed .50 BMG semi-auto rifles and look for the bespoke-style hunting lodge, and you will find the Sovereigns. barrettsovereign.com
