Browning Silver Hunter
The Browning(R) Silver Hunter(TM) Matte is a lightweight, fast handling semi-auto shotgun that's designed with upland bird hunting in mind; though its self-adjusting Active Valve gas system increases its versatility to include most any type of wing shooting or shooting sport. The Active Valve gas system vents excess gas out the top of the forearm, and away from the receiver for clean, reliable operation with 2-3/4" and 3" shells, without the need or adjustment. The Silver Hunter Matte model comes with a matte blued barrel, a 2-tone silver/black receiver, and a checkered Turkish walnut stock with a brown, ventilated recoil pad. The semi-humpback receiver design with a ventilated rib and brass front bead creates a sight picture that's quick to pick up and swing on moving targets. The barrel comes back bored and threaded for Browning's Invector-Plus choke tubes (includes IC, M, & F) to deliver consistently tight shot patterns. The low recoiling Browning Silver Hunter Matte Semi-Auto Shotgun allows for fast follow-up shots and all-day shooting comfort on the clays range or wing shooting.Lightweight and fast handling2-tone silver/black receiverBlued barrelTurkish walnut stockVentilated recoil padActive Valve gas systemCycles 2-3/4" and 3" shellsVent rib and brass front beadInvector-Plus choke tubesBack bored barrel
Chiappa Firearms C9
The baseline, pistol-grip C9-12 is 34.5" long due to its 22-inch barrel, and is 6.5 pounds heavy. The 42" long, 7.5lbs. heavy C9-12 "Tactical" comes with a pistol grip, a fixed tactical stock with sling attachment, Ghost Ring sights, a top Picatinny rail for additional aiming devices and a vented, serrated flash hider that will allow operators to use it to breach doors while preventing overpressure from damaging the barrel. All C6-12 and C9-12 shotguns are however drilled and tapered for Ghost Ring sights and MIL-STD-1913 "Picatinny" rails, and all come with an integral RemChoke installed to the barrel. Other accessories, offered by the Chiappa Firearms Ltd. company as after-market add-ons, include all sorts of polymer furniture − which is interchangeable from model to model − slings and cleaning kits, polymer and aluminium snap caps, breacher tubes, choke tubes, non-railed and railed magazine extensions. As of today, the C6-12 and C9-12 are U.S. market products only; price and availability are not fixed, and may vary due to the high levels of demand, and general turmoil, that the north American market has now been experiencing for several months. Chiappa Firearms and their exclusive distributor for the United States, MKS Supply Inc. out of Dayton (Ohio), will be glad to answer al inquiries by American shooters and perspective buyers.
