The Breda 12 autoloader, which appeared in the U.S. in the early 1950s, was an exceptionally well made, long-recoil operated, Browning-type shotgun. Its distinguishing features were that it could be completely disassembled without tools, and all parts were machined and polished.
In short, the Breda was one of the best-finished autoloaders on the market, when it appeared. Additionally, it was light; only Franchi could claim a lighter gun. The balance and the handling qualities were very good, and it was advertised as being a perfect autoloader for upland gunning.
Also in the event you are interested, all of these gun documents I am posting can be found on the disk I have listed to your left. Additionally to the hundreds of documents I have posted, I have hundreds of gun patents (mostly suppressors) as well as class PowerPoints and targets. all for $5.
