    Caesar Guerini vs Beretta?

    I had a 20g Ellipse Ltd which is the cheaper version of the Ellipse curve. It was a great gun to shoot but appeared to have had a case hardened finish to the action which was in fact just a lacquer which wore in places after only a couple of years of light use or maybe over zealous cleaning. CG covered themselves by not actually stating it a case hardened finish ( despite some reviews calling it so) by giving the finish a 'TM' being their trade mark finish. Just a polite warning. I would have no qualms in getting another CG, perhaps as previously stated a 20g Maxum if Sabel25 decides to sell his to me for half price.

    I second that regarding the Macnab Highlanders made by B.Rizzini. The nearest equivalent being the B.Rizzini Aurum at double the price of a S/H Highlander and without the solid top rib. The Aurum also has a gold trigger as opposed to a blacked trigger on the Highlander which in my opinion, being understated, looks far better. I have had a few Highlanders and currently have one in 20g. Excellent guns to both own and shoot, with POW stocks, solid top ribs and 29 inch barrels, what's not to like ? Mind you, if money was no object for me, I would opt for a 20g CG Maxum. I think also that CG have the edge on others regarding the wood used with some stunning stocks. A good well figured stock will sell a gun far more easily than a plainer stock. OB

    Wouldn`t have expected you to know the Latin name as I had to google it in the first place.

    Might have underestimated its possible height as it can grow quite tall. I was only going by the one I saw yesterday. OB Bit more information. It has orange berries inside the pink petals. OB

    Yes I know, I did edit to say photo to follow (Hopefully). No doubt there will be a comment soon about snowdrops in a snow storm or similar. Once I get my head round imgbb maybe something may appear. If you can guess the plant without a photo John, you can have the book OB

    First to identify this plant/hedgerow shrub with the common and Latin name will get a copy of `Hot Barrels` by Jeremy Hobson. This I originally obtained from a PW member, but have since been given another copy by my daughter as a present, unaware that I already had it, so is surplus to requirements. Sorry, don`t seem to post photo. Will try harder later. OB
