NRA Gun of the Week: Fabarm USA Autumn

posted on September 17, 2021

Available through Fabarm USA, the Autumn comes to U.S. shores as a feature-rich and ornate side-by-side shotgun with a lively feel and superb balance. The American hunter and clay shooter now have access to an Italian-made side-by-side from Fabarm.

The gun’s deluxe-grade Turkish walnut, fine metal work, Gold inlays and floral scenes make it a thing of beauty, that in addition to looking great, is a superbly robust design chambered for 3” shells, capable of magnum-shell abuse in the field. Machined from a steel forging that creates a monolithic design, which increases the action’s strength for reliability and longevity.

Fabarm’s Autumn lineup gives options for 28” or 30”-barreled models. For those who enjoy the fast-handing, and between the hands balance of British-style stocks, can have their Autumn built as such with an British-style straight wrist and Splinter-style fore-end. American-style hunters and shooters may be more apt for the pistol grip version with a beavertail fore-end profile.

Our Autumn sample shipped from Fabarm USA configured to the British style with 28” barrels. The included barrels feature a lightweight design and Fabarm’s TRIBORE barrel-making technology. The result is a tapered bore that increases performance and helps to reduce the gun’s weight. Our testers noted recoil from the fairly light 20 gauge as comfortable with clay-target loads, and with magnum-charged hunting loads, the gun performed admirably.
