Description
The Tempio Light brings an added dimension to the popular Tempio Field gun. Featuring a forged action and fore-end assembly crafted from a high tech aluminum alloy, the Tempio Light combines featherweight lightness for carrying and handling ease with unmatched durability and function. The uniquely designed action features a special high luster nickel finish with Invisalloy™ protective coating designed to enhance the “ornato” scroll engraving. Additionally, the stock incorporates a hollowed out section to bring the light weight gun into perfect balance. All wear points between the action and barrels are steel, providing longevity similar to our all steel actions. The deluxe grade Turkish walnut and fine 26 lines-per-inch checkering further enhance the Tempio Light’s appearance. All Caesar Guerini field guns come with a velvet lined lockable hard case and five precision flush chokes (CYL, IC, M, IM, F). A plastic choke case is also included.
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.
