EFFEBI FIREARMS: INNOVATORS BY TRADITION

For the gauge 16 there is a different matter: in the wake of the strong impulse given to the return of this gauge on the territory by  the Italian Club Gauge 16, the Effebi has implemented a specific model, the “Beta″, particularly  tidy and without a rib for improved vibration of the barrel and spherical viewfinder old style.

Riccardo Ceccarelli, hunterEffebi is a factory in the industrial area of Concesio, gateway to the Valtrompia where the weapon-making wisdom is in its home. Established many years ago by Dr..Franco Beretta, already from the first steps of the activity it has always distinguished itself in the continuous search for ballistic solutions useful to hunters. The Val Trompia, as well as being the home of sporting and hunting weapons, it is also a place where hunters there have always been in great quantity: and therefore it is the ideal place to take from them a rich set of information about the needs that arise in hunting. And here in Effebi brilliant minds and make produce rifles that have only one prerogative: the satisfaction of the hunter. Yes, because in Effebi they are “innovators by tradition”.

So if you pass by here, you will find them intent on developing and testing more than to produce in large quantities. In the company Dr. Franco is joined by his son Fabio, a skilled interpreter, in a modern key,  of the company philosophy and superfine manager that supports always with fantasy the hunter and his quest of hunting satisfaction.

Keen observer and curious technical and commercial experimenter, since I had the pleasure of his acquaintance, I saw him engage with extraordinary continuity and tenacity in finding solutions for both shotguns and rifles, hardly traceable in the catalogs of other companies. Specialist of small gauges for company tradition, Fabio passes from these to the higher gauges and the rifles with extraordinary ease, always managing to produce consistently hunting weapons that often ahead of their time and give the hunter the ideal solution for each hunt.

In his catalog is difficult to find “a normal weapon”, because that – as he himself says – everyone has one – while the same is rich in solutions for specific variants hunting that every hunter faces and on which may be fine any shotgun, but the one born to the particular need is certainly better. The  philosophy that Fabio has brought in his company is that the shotgun was born for one purpose: to hunt, facing the cold and water, scorching heat and shock. Hence the need to not enrich it with extreme aesthetic solutions (although asking it you’ll surely be content with extreme satisfaction), but to give it “what it takes” to ensure efficiency, strength and durability, the three basic requirements for a weapon that in the years will provide pleasure to the hunter and not to give him problems or to highlight limitations.

But let’s get to the weapons I would say “special”, starting from the shotgun.

Among the series of classic Effebi shotguns, one stands out from the reeds with very short barrels.

It’s the Queen Omega designed and manufactured for woodcock hunting that, because of the environment in which pitfall, creates many problems for our game bag. Here the hunting problems of the queen of the wood find their worthy solution and the shotgun is particularly handy with his short barrels that have a particularly large chokes combinable successfully with dispersants cartridges on the market to provide a particularly large and well distributed pattern. It’s made in 12 gauge to provide the highest volume of fire and has low weight; it is the ideal answer for those walk for steep slopes for the entire day, searching the woodcook.

But the production of shotguns Effebi reserve another amazing gem. It’s a shotgun for fire position hunting that has the two barrels slightly divergent able to fire simultaneously. Even in this case the company has researched the most appropriate solution for those who see get thrown on a group of birds and know thet can to hit just one. This is no longer true, to the satisfaction of the palate of the hunter of migratory birds. The shotgun provides “8” pattern for the partial overlap of the two. The absolute success for the small migratory birds hunting.

In the catalog there’s also a shotgun slug (Omega Slug) expressly created for hunting wild boar in gauge 12 and 20 with generous organs of sight with notch on the raised thickness of sighting bar.

These are flanked by the weapons in small gauge 28 and .410 (Master Slim) who have received in recent years a great success.

Other specialist weapons are shown in the catalog Effebi. In particular, they have an interpretation the classic “single smooth barrel” In Effebi this weapon, considered by many a lower weapon, assumes a rank distinctly different. It is produced not only in the gauges considered classics for such a weapon 24, 28, and 8 .410 gauges Flobert but also in 12, 16 and 20 following the commercial success in South America where this type of weapon is particularly required to hunt the hare and the local partridge with long barrels and full chokes.

The single barrel “Beta” is produced with the variation of the key opening positioned or above the receiver or alternatively in the lower part as in the classic tradition of Italic single barrel, with or without a ventilated barrel rib. It has a stock with a generous pistol grip and equally generous is the forend for a firm grip of the weak hand, which is necessary when you switch from the .410 version to charges 16 or 12.

For the 16 is a different matter: in the wake of the strong impulse given to the return of this gauge on the territory of the Italian Club active Gauge 16, the Effebi has implemented a specific model, the “Beta Effebi single barrel 16 gauge hunting beta Classic old Style 16″, particolrmente groomed and without a rib for improved vibration of the rod and spherical viewfinder old style.

It’s a low cost shotgun (this year for use in a Long Test the founder of the Club) that sedicisti will certainly not escape.

 But with the Beta they have not finished to surprise at all. Its versions in gauge .410 and 8 Flobert (Beta 110) are equipped with a interchangeable choke with an extension of 40 cm which brings the barrel from 70 to 110 cm, so the hunter has the opportunity to have a small gauge of extraordinary scope and with a noise impact limited, very useful when you don’t want to worry the game.

Specialists in folding arms, Effebi did not forget to impress even in terms of supperposed. There are two classic weapons in the company’s production: the folding supperposed s proposed in gauges .410 and 28. There is also another superposed, a non-selective single trigger in .410 gauge, fully folding and made ​​of cylindrical barrels of short length (only 56 cm), designed to meet two kinds of users: the woodcook’s hunters suited to action sports and alternatively the wild bora’s hunters that very often shoot dry shots even in small gauge to free the dogs from the risk of wild boar stopped in the bushes.

There are also an entire range of  folding over and under  and the excellent Black Diamond, over and under  of unique elegance, available in 28 gauge and .410 in hunting and sporting version.

Even in the field of rifles, Effebi not let slip the opportunity to propose with extreme originality its interpretation of the hunting rifle. The Terminator is what we can call “Kipplauf Italian”; it’s a weapon completely folding over itself, it has a slide weaver for mounting optics, the barrels of high quality steel and wood in walnut of a high degree with stock with cheekpiece and ending with a black rubber recoil pad.

The Terminator is produced in many different gauges and is oriented to selection hunters that operate such hunting in difficult terrain such as the Alps or the Apennines. Here the rifle Effebi gives the best demonstration of herself for the weight and the way in which it can be folded.

I conclude this brief excursus on Effebi with a clarification; as you may have noticed I have not talked about traditional shotguns or semi-automatic that although the company has a catalog. I spoke of specificity, of ideas generated from a lot of speaks made ​​between the owners of the company and the hunters.

And we discussed the company’s catalog as a cylinder from which Franco and Fabio, with extraordinary continuity, manage to extract solutions designed exclusively for the satisfaction of our incurable followers of Diana.

EFFEBI TERMINATOR: THE ITALIAN KIPPLAUF

stock, forend, shotgun

RiccardoThe ribbed single barrel folding is intended for those who practice strenuous hunts ungulates, whether in the mountains or to look up the hill through the woods and clearings. Became weapon solid, practical and light, leaving only the task of the hunter to aim well without shortness of breath because they never tired. Kipplauf is the weapon by high specialization, designed and developed for the needs montane and alpine Europe workhorse of many historic and successful producers in Germany and Austria.

But it has now crossed borders and is produced with success in Italy.
EFFEBI has been able to reinterpret it, imposing his practical sense and succeeding, through superb accomplishments, to broaden the use of logic and wild which can be addressed. And ‘the case of the Terminator, produced by EFFEBI Concesio (ITALY), and with whom Fabio Beretta, owner and unparalleled creative mind, he wanted to give an answer to some of the specialties of the hunt ball, tackling the issues of realization of the’ weapon from the point of view of the hunter. And let’s start right here, by the end user.

Rifle, fifled, Effebi, Terminator, firearm
Terminator is a single-shot rifle folding with the ability to be folded up to bring the barrel in position almost parallel to the calcium. Factor that facilitates the alpine hunter often used to carry the weapon in his backpack. And just to transport over long distances and challenging mountain EFFEBI the thought, creating a product that is a little over 3 kg (3,050 gr.) To which we add the weight of optics that the hunter will choose for his fighter. Lightness, therefore, ease of transport and they do get out of the Terminator by the exclusive use of mountain hunts and for hunting also propose to look at non-alpine ungulates (deer and fallow deer), governs booming throughout the national.
Rifle, carbine, rifled, hunting, Effebi TerminatorThinking about the latter and the real risk that a weapon of high aesthetic refinement may suffer scratches on the wood in search in the woods, the EFFEBI has created a weapon to protect spartan no frills excessively and can distract the hunter. And in this spirit of versatility is achieved in various calibers.

TECHNICAL ASPECTS 
The receiver, the heart of any weapon, is made from a single block of forged steel and cemented in HCD4 houses the trigger group. The opening of the weapon is achieved by adjusting the throttle opening located on the upper tail of the receiver. This action frees the ventral piece and allows the opening of the weapon el’armamento inserting the battery, automatically the security mechanism.

At the close of the weapon appears to be ready, armed with the trigger mechanism, but with the safety engaged automatically.

The closure of the Terminator is guaranteed by a harpoon downloaded which is housed in the headquarters of the plans of the receiver through the dowel reinforcement created entirely from forged early.

The rotation of the barrel on the receiver is guaranteed by chromium molybdenum steel pin UM10 securely fastened.
The battery has no steckher and the gun has a trigger which 1.200 gr factory calibrated. The barrel is made with UM8 process rotomartellatura cold GFM machines. The barrel has a conical profile and is lapped internally before proceeding to the implementation of the lining in order to obtain both the crest that the bottom row of transparencies so as to make more fluid the path of the ball. The rod is inserted plug in the engine block and then welded silver alloy. The Terminator series is equipped with weaver base for the mounting of optics. It ‘also equipped with rear sight adjustable for those unwilling to use optics.
The EFFEBI upon request will provide the hunter demanding a system of rings slide and quick-release steel products from Contessa that can be mounted on the rifle with four simple screws.
WOODS

PROOF OF SHOOTING
The EFFEBI for the test has made available a Terminator in 6,5x57R caliber. As the gun-shot and then set to pull out of sequence, the shots were not fired in succession, but only to the cooling of the barrel after the previous stroke. Procedure a bit ‘long in time but more comparable with the shooting.

The test shots were made at 100 meters with ammunition with balls 126, 130, 120 grains. The shot pattern wider than the canonical 100 meters was 25 mm while the closer to 21 mm. The felt recoil was pleasantly reduced despite the rifle used had a weight of only 3,050 grams.

CONCLUSIONS
The weight, the ability to replicate completely the weapon to the long marches of approach to the target, the recoil particularly low and the price, that in setting used does not exceed 1,400 euros including VAT, make the Terminator of EFFEBI an important ally hunter’s ball, which will certainly take into consideration when making your purchase.
