Pictured here are well know circuit shooters, my good friends Jacki and Steve trying my new Stratos lightweight game. Great stance Jacki, keep your head down. Here’s what they think of it.
Steve: Well feels and handles great, it’s lower price point brings your HVR rib design to a much wider audience, definitely another winner. John, you’ve done it again!
Jacki: Love it, I want one. (Steve, wear your RSR out first)!!
I am very lucky to have just returned from a trip to Argentina shooting Doves. It’s been said that it’s too easy, boring and not worth the effort. (Dreadful flight times.) I beg to differ. Apart from the flight, the trip is one of a lifetime. The targets are amazing from fast hedgehoppers jinking and twisting and very hard to the highest tall screamers 60 yds up and beyond. If you take your time selecting the best targets and are not interested in great numbers, this is possibly the finest shooting I have been lucky enough to experience. And, most important, the HVR just did exactly what I have been saying for some time. It handled like no other game gun I have experienced and it really proved its worth beyond doubt. I have to emphasize once again, the P&V HVR 20 I believe is the finest 20 ever to hit the market. I had some great colleague comments too with a some other members of the team taking a shot or two, showing considerable surprise as to how it handles.
THE BEST GAME 2OG SHOTGUN EVER? Absolutely.
Last autumn I took delivery of a new Perugini & Visini 20G game shotgun in the HVR design. It was my intention to use it for game shooting as I now find it a little tiring to use a 12g all day as age creeps in. I have been tuning and adjusting this new gun to my personal measurements and have now completed the work. I have been using and handling shotguns for nearly 60 years and I can not recall having the same thoughts about any other shotgun for game shooting like I have for this one. It is unbelievably special. It makes shotgun shooting especially for driven targets, a unique experience. It is superbly pointable but easy and quick to move and somehow, it seems to make shooting driven targets and most others too just so easy. This is the best 20g shotgun I have ever handled. The best 20g ever brought to market ? I think it could be. All who have tried it so far are amazed. The HVR has established itself already in the 12g as something pretty special but this lighter and supremely superior handling and shooting shotgun has to be the number 1. An all time classic ? OK its me talking but come and prove me wrong or indeed, right. Free trials readily available. But, – if you are looking for a very special 20g game shotgun beware, once tried you won’t be able to live with anything else. 3 Only available this year waiting in the factory part finished, just waiting stock specs.
You won’t see my guns on display at the show this year, but I will be around during the show time. I have decided that my guns always show best when handled and experienced personally at a shooting range somewhere. Please call me if you are going and I would be delighted to meet you to discuss my full range of guns in person and hopefully then make an appointment for you to come and prove to yourself as others have that, ‘My Guns Just Shoot Better.’ I will buy you a cup of coffee too.
I had this customer who came to me to buy one of my s/h Perazzi guns last year but when trying to fit it to him, we discovered that he needed an abnormal cast and drop. A new stock was duly ordered from the factory and I waited with baited breath as it was a bit of a gamble. The new stock arrived last week and as you can see from the picture, it is almost perfect, just a little tweaking necessary. As my company policy states, I guarantee a perfect fit but in this case I was a little worried that I had got it right. I surely had.
Full specifications. Right hand stock with 15m parallel CAST ON to the left and a huge drop of nearly 60m. He will hit em all now.
Jeff is a well known veteran on the circuit and is putting in some great scores with his trusted Perazzi RSR. South of England sporting championship, Sussex Fitasc, 1st Cyprus Grand Prix, European Compak, World Beretta cup just to name a few. Well done Jeff, keep it up!
Just returned from a most enjoyable weekend at Grimsthorpe shooting ground near Bourne Lincolnshire held on Saturday and Sunday. The event was a great success with a high attendance for both the shooting offered on this very special ground and for my fitting clinic. I attended to 14 different customers giving them the very best fit possible and there were certainly one or two big surprises. One customer was shooting a gun which was 1.5″ too short and several as usual were shooting with a much too low comb. All shooters taking advantage of my fitting service well appreciated the help and advice offered and hopefully they will now enjoy better shooting when the various adjustments are made. The new clubhouse at Grimsthorpe is one of the best I have worked in and coupled with a fantastic layout showing every type of target, why visit any where else in the area. One of the best grounds and facilities in the UK. (Great sausage rolls.) Sincere thanks to all at Grimsthorpe and I have already been asked to return, details of a second visit to be revealed shortly.
Kenny Bennett, Andrew Simmons and Grahame Cudlipp have all converted to the P & V HVR. Their comments regarding performance of this now exceptionally special design should alone be enough to take them to the top. The best sporting shotgun ever? Could be. Better come and try it!
Another success for Kenny
