Author's rifle: FG 91 hunting version from Fanfarillo
Second appointment for the special dedicated to the Author's Rifles presented at HIT Show 2020. Today we are showing you the GF91 of Fanfarillo company.
My name is Claudio Fanfarillo and I represent the Fabbrica d'Armi Guido Fanfarillo company that has been manufacturing weapons since the 1950s.
The first product is a hunting version of the GF 91 with removable battery, with Boss type closures. The plus of this weapon is the search for materials: the action frame is made of 18 ncd5, a highly resistant material, the rods are in 40 Nickel-Chrome-Molybdenum 2 Trilegate.
Its characteristics are obviously the great wear resistance for hunting and also for target sports use. It was born precisely for the need to shoot several thousand cartridges without ever having to replace or regenerate anything.
The engravings are always curated by the master Stefano Muffolini with him there is a collaboration that lasts for three generations, at first with his father Antonio, today with Stefano and Luca, the Stefano's son, who is walking in dad's footsteps.
The second weapon is a weapon that is still blank, ready to be engraved and to be finished. The GF 91 Classic version is an unfinished weapon, we are waiting for the customer’s decisions to make the engravings.
It is a weapon that differs for a different shooting group and a second battery of greater value. In regards to the dipstick it has a pump release instead of a huge opening.
The price of these products settles ona medium-high range for the refinement of the materials: the finishes, the engravings and, of course, the woods.
