[Project Upland] The Fabarm Autumn: A Shotgun Overview by Michael Thompson

By Autumn, Gun Review

“Overall, it’s a beautiful, well-made, and well-finished gun, but where it really shines is when it’s in the hand. If you have ever heard a shotgun maniac describe a gun as “lively in the hand,” this would be one of those guns. Its balance is superb and center-mass, which makes it indeed feel as though it has some life in it. Upon shouldering the Autumn, not only did I find life, but I also found that magic I had all but given up looking for in a SxS for so long.”

[Shotgun Sports: 08:21] Gun Test: Fabarm Elos N2 Allsport Type-T Combo

By Elos N2 Allsport Type-T, Gun Review

“A large number of shooters maintain multiple shotguns to use for different disciplines, and this can be very costly for the majority of shooters who enjoy shooting trap, skeet and sporting clays. And, for high school and collegiate competitors (who do shoot all three games), this is nearly impossible. As such, the ELOS N2 Allsport Type-T is a great option for these shooters, allowing them to own a well-made shotgun and be highly competitive throughout their shooting careers.

[Gun Dog 06:21] Shotgun Report: Fabarm Autumn by Brad Fitzpatrick

By Autumn, Gun Review

“Fabarm didn’t launch the Autumn simply to play in the side-by-side market. This gun is well thought-out and beautifully appointed. Fit and finish are excellent, and material quality is on par with guns costing more. It’s a solidly built double gun that’s practical enough for field use without losing that special side-by-side magic. If you’re a double gun devotee or simply looking for an elegant new bird gun that’s as practical as it is pretty, the Autumn is worth a close look.”

By Elos N2 Allsport Type-T, Gun Review

“Fabarm has been on the cutting edge of things when it comes to bringing purpose built, highly adjustable target shotguns to the market. They have also been very receptive and responsive to the shooting community, listening to what the target shooter wants and needs. This Fabarm model is the embodiment of that feedback and provides a true multi-sport target gun.”

Outdoor Life voted the FABARM AXIS TRAP “One of the Best Shotguns of 2013”!

By AXIS Trap

From Outdoor Life, May 6, 2013 website:

This lovely beast of a shotgun has a simple job—turning clay targets into powdery ink blots in the sky—and it does that job very, very well. The speed with which it gets on the going-away targets that characterize trap shooting is nothing short of scary. And thanks to the quality of its trigger—by far the best among the shotguns in the test—the shots themselves feel more like an act of will than an act of your trigger finger. The adjustability of the shotgun’s raised rib and stock allows for a true custom fit and pattern placement. At $3,995, this is a real bargain for a serious trap gun, many of which cost at least twice as much. Read More

Gun Test: FABARM XLR5 Velocity by Johnny Cantu – Shotgun Sports Magazine


The original article appeared in the May 2012 issue of Shotgun Sports magazine written by Johnny Cantu.

In my report of the 2012 SHOT Show in the May issue of Shotgun Sports I informed our readers of a new semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun from the famous Italian arms manufacturer, FABARM, (now a part of Caesar Guerini) the XLR5 Velocity. I also mentioned to look forward to a review of the XLR5. Well, after a phone call or two to Mr. Joe Cunniffe, General Manager of FABARM USA in Cambridge, MD, my test sample which was an early prototype model arrived at my office.
