Description
The Challenger Ascent is the natural progression of the extremely popular Ascent line of target shotguns. We have upgraded the Ascent with a bold Acanthus leaf engraving motif on a fine Inglesina scroll background. The stock dimensions are unchanged, but the wood has been upgraded to a deluxe grade of Turkish Walnut. All Ascent models feature a10mm high fixed rib and Monte Carlo stock that allows the shooter to utilize a more upright shooting posture while still retaining the instinctive pointing qualities of a flat-rib sporting clays gun. The result is an modern sporting gun that accommodates both pre-mounted and gun-down shooting styles while remaining very comfortable to shoot.
