Description
Even the most sophisticated computer-controlled machines cannot match the consummate skill of the best craftsmen and gunsmiths when it comes to creating an investment-quality field shotgun such as the Forum. Each Forum field gun is the result of numerous hours of hand labor by artisans with a passion for precision, premium quality and attention to the smallest details. Every surface—even those hidden from view—is hand polished, and all components are hand-fitted to ensure flawless operation. The engraving on the Forum has been enhanced to include more coverage and detail, and it features our revolutionary new full-length trigger guard. This unique design uses no screws, resulting in a clean, seamless look, and the guard terminates in a perfectly fitted skeletal grip cap for an elegant flair. The Forum’s stock sports a classic Prince of Wales grip, which matches perfectly with our trim, rounded fore-end, giving the gun distinctive British lines. To complete the package, the stock features exactingly cut, extra-fine checkering, a checkered butt plate and a hand-rubbed oil finish.
What makes a great Field Gun?
There are three things you want to take hunting with you; a well-trained dog, a good friend and a great shotgun… we can help you with the shotgun. A great bird gun has to become like an extension of your body. To accomplish this we make shotguns that are light and well balanced. Special care is taken in engineering the barrels to be as light and responsive as possible. On the other end of the shotgun we calibrate the weight of the stock by hollowing out the stock bolt hole, ensuring the gun is perfectly balanced.

To further enhance handling we utilize a trim stock design that features swept back open radius pistol grips that enhance the natural pointing characteristics of the shotgun while making the gun comfortable to carry during long days in the field. We take the time to perfectly fit a matching walnut butt plate to make the gun easy to mount without catching on your clothing. These features are focused on making our shotguns as functional as they are beautiful. That is what makes a great shotgun.
