The semi-automatic Colombo (not to be confused with the limited series) has been specially designed and manufactured for wood pigeon hunting. The ability to choose between two types of barrel with wide-shot and long-shot accommodates the different techniques when hunting one of the most popular and coveted birds. The new Cryogenic Wide Shot choke (mounted on the 65-cm barrel) provides a 30% more compact pattern in distances between 15 and 25 metres, ideal for hunting from platforms, while the new Cryogenic Long Shot choke (mounted on the 70-cm barrel) guarantees a more compact pattern in long (50-60 metres) and overhead shots, ideal for migratory bird hunting. These chokes have been designed, manufactured and tested to ensure the best ballistic performance. The patented Progressive Comfort system incorporated in the stock gradually reduces the perception of recoil. The grip and engravings on the receiver enhance the strong personality of this firearm. Walnut woods finished with the new WoodFX treatment that emphasises the elegant grain of stock and fore-end.
