silma shotguns


Recommended Posts

A friend bought one 2nd hand after I introduced him to Wildfowling and shooting in general years ago. It was a fixed choked O/U with 28'' tubes and a fair big chunk of wood for the stock.  I used it on occasion and liked shooting it as the heavy stock helped soak up 36rgm and 42grm lead loads. It shot very smooth and was lively enough with the 28 inch barrels and I took some nice ducks with it. Never missed a beat in the time he used it. I thought about buying it after he decided to pack the shooting in, but I didnt really need it.

A no frills,solid gun probably in the same vein as Lanber,Bettinsoli ect... John Forsey used to advertise a 3 1/2 inch chambered 12bore Silma O/U with 36'' barrels and if I had of lived in the UK I would have snapped it up.
