In 2014, as a result of our ongoing pursuit to make the most durable Target shotgun possible, we created the Invictus system. This design ushered in the most significant advancement in over-under durability in many years. All of the technology in the Invictus V Ascent is complimented by the graceful side plate action with full-coverage engraving. This embellishment employs no fewer than four different engraving techniques, including many hours of hand engraving. The result is a stunning example of contemporary Italian Ornato style engraving with deep relief game scenes. The Invictus V is quite simply the perfect synthesis of technology and art. All Ascent models feature a 10mm 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.
INVICTUS: Latin, meaning: unconquerable, undefeated.A number of years ago we engaged in a study to determine if there was a technical solution for significantly increasing the long term durability of an over-and-under action; more specifically, the problem of an “off face” condition which is created by the barrel and action wearing to the point that there is an unsafe gap between the two. This condition typically spelled the end of a shotgun’s useful wear life. Caesar Guerini’s Invictus action is the first double gun to ever overcome this issue. Due to the modularity of the Invictus system the life span has been increased between 200 and 300% over the typical double gun. We feel this is a quantum leap forward in the evolution of over-and-under shotguns. To read more about the exclusive Invictus features, click here.
