Fair Iside SxS 20 Gauge. Took the plunge.

Thanks for all the replies. I figured out how to get the pictures embedded. ThreeDogs, I am not sure if you can get it without the skip line checking. I actually like it quite a bit, looks really nice in my opinion.

 

Honestly, I know this is cliche, but pictures do not do it justice. The gun overall is breath taking in person.

I checked the website and it provided scant details on the dimensions/options in any given gun.  Would like to know more; did they send you a printed brochure etc.?

Very nice! It is just the way i'd want it but in 12 at 6.8. I'm too clumsy for 5.8.

1 of 2 birds bagged this past weekend with the Fair Iside 20 Gauge.  It is really well built, absolutely love this gun. Had zero malfunctions, ran into no issues with this shotgun, worked flawlessly. Really a quality shotgun.

Has anyone handled both this and the Dickinson Estate? I'm interested in this one because of the lighter weight but the Dickinson seems to be much more readily available.

I ran into this same problem.

 

I sent an email asking for more info, and never got a response.

Hello,

 

Megpickels - I have handled both. I liked the FAIR iside a lot better. Felt a lot better in the hands, a pound lighter and 100 percent Italian built. The gun really does feel like quality work. However, those Dickinsons are also great guns. Cannot go wrong with them, I just think that the FAIR iside is a step up.

 

Shinbone and Dogwood - Justin has been out of town because he had a funeral to attend to. I called last week because I wanted to order an IM and Full choke tubes along with a wood butt plate and this is what they told me. Their office number is (800) 450-1852. Give them a jingle, I found them very helpful.

Every Italian made fun I’ve owned has been great. My main grouse gun is Fausti Venice 20 gauge with 26” barrels. I absolutely love it. It’s a true “feather duster”.  There’s one for sale on Marks Born Again bird Guns page. Congratulations and good luck with it. I may need to look into the 16 gauge.
