Best O/U Shotgun of 2013: Fabarm Elos Deluxe

$2,895****; (fabarmusa.com) A rounded receiver and streamlined top lever give this new Italian smallbore over/under a distinctively modern look, while the well-executed acanthus scrollwork, game-scene engraving, and matte-finished walnut stock add a classic touch.

It was no slouch on the skeet field, either, where tester Clint Hartsock praised its balance. Fabarm guns have been imported on and off to the U.S. for several years but have never found much traction in this market. Now under the ownership of Caesar Guerini, Fabarm should become a familiar name among American shooters.
