Sober style and great character given by the special Breda nichel. Echo is the link between Astro and Titano series. In its nichel version, simple but elegant, it presents itself with a sober style and great character.
Echo exploits the lightness of the Astro series frame combined with the refinement of the finishes that characterize the Titano series:
• single-piece frame machined from a solid billet
• manual polishing and meticulous brushing of the surfaces to obtain a satin effect
• fine renaissance theme decor that runs as a band across the whole frame, making the rifle aesthetically slim and modern
• use of the stock designed for the Titano series
The process used for Breda shotguns nichel version is also called “double nichel plating” and has been expressly developed to guarantee unparalleled strength compared to the traditional nickel plating. The shotgun is therefore particularly protected from atmospheric and corrosive agents; distinctive sign of this process is the bright and homogeneous color of the frame.
The stock and the fore-end are made with selected top quality walnut wood, with natural oil finish done by hand respecting the timing dictated by the oiler craftsman.
Particular attention has been paid to the ergonomics of the wood, creating surfaces that facilitate and speed up the wielding of the shotgun.
A further news introduced in this line is on the stock, specifically at comb: in fact a soft touch black insert has been added that absorbs the effects of the recoil on the shooter thus improving the shooting experience
It’s little know that the inertia system was invented for Breda by the same brilliant mind that conceived the Xanthos: Bruno Civolani, and it is for this reason, that he is universally regarded as the founding father of the modern inertial semiautomatic.
The Echo, which is available in 12 gauge, is considered as the perfect combination of reliability and elegance. There is no better definition for these extraordinary gun which combines a head rotating mechanism, quality materials, as well as a finesse of the finishing in a modern and truly innovative design.
