The innovative Breda Xanthos is functionally beautiful, with a solid steel receiver that's incredibly reliable and surprisingly light. The Xanthos’ steel receiver is hand-matched to the same high quality steel barrel that Breda is famous for throughout Italy and Europe. The inertial movement system is effectively melded with Breda's superior block-locking system, which combines simple functionality and a high level of gun safety. Breda's Fast Loading is extremely efficient and reliable and enables the hunter to shoot quickly by reducing the interval between shots. The innovative design of the Xanthos allows the gun to use a heavier bolt, which absorbs recoil better, reducing the felt recoil in the shoulder. It has a beautiful walnut stock with laser-cut checkering, and the steel receiver and barrel sport a black finish suitable to frequent hunting. High luminosity fiber-optic sight. Vertical lug locking system. Technopolymer trigger guard. Cross-bolt safety. Proofed for steel ammunition. Ships in a plastic case with a set of five screw-in choke tubes.
