Description
Some shooters accuse Caesar Guerini of focusing on the cosmetics of our guns. Our reply is ”guilty as charged”. It is our policy to pursue excellence in all aspects of our firearms, both what can be seen and what you experience when you pull the trigger. The Challenger grade has been designed to appeal to the target shooter with a bold Acanthus leaf pattern on a fine Inglesina scroll background. All of the hand polished coin finished metal surfaces are finished in Invisalloy® protective finish for years of carefree service. Additionally, the new Challenger comes standard with the DTS trigger system that reduces trigger pull weight and creep. The aesthetics of a gun might not be the most important issue, but life is too short to shoot an ugly gun.
