Artisan Rifle: Mauro Battaglia shotgun
Let's find out with Mauro Battaglia the advantages of building rifles without visible external screws.
Mauro Battaglia, owner of the Manifattura Armi Battaglia company, manufacturer of fine weapons presented at HIT Show the boss-type superimposed, model timio, and a lady extra double-barreled shotgun, built entirely without any visible screw.
The boss-type superimposed is a rifle with flares on side folders. It is the most expensive shotgun that a craftsman can build because both in terms of manpower and finishes it is the one that takes the most time. This shotgun is a 20 gauge, hunting rifle, engraved with a very fine Baroque style ornament, 71 barrels.
As far as the Lady Extra is concerned, it is an innovative rifle, because as far as the Holland & Holland rifle is concerned, it does not have the classic steel but a full bridle lighter, different from the classic Holland. Yet being a flint on folders the integral bridle allows you to add an appendix that is hooked to a screw that is not seen. It is designed because the screws to disassemble them are ruined, they are “brigose” to disassemble them instead so you can indulge in any type of incision because there is no screw, you can make any type of incision and also as refinement it is a weapon anyway without any visible screw that gives it an extra sense of prestige.
