Icaro20 Nickel


SKU: b7ee6f5f9aa5 Category:

You will be struck by the harmony of the contrast between the polished frame and the black top receiver; the painstaking attention with which the surfaces are polished and brushed denotes quality and craftsmanship.

Another point of strenght is the trigger group entirely CNC machined from solid billet made of ergal, with high performance of mechanical resistance and lightness. This wonderful chassis allows to perform Chartusian and professional customizations for the most exhigent top shooters.

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.

Series Icaro 20

Are you looking for a lightweight, very handy shotgun with a refined and elegant design? ICARO 20 by Breda is the ideal solution for all those who want a hunting shotgun of great quality and performance at the highest levels.

Among the most important technical features, we point out the trigger group entirely made by CNC-machined aluminium by means of so-called "solid" machining, i.e. working a solid block of ergal 7075T6. This alloy, unlike others normally used in the firearms industry, guarantees higher resistance and allows greater precision in the machining operations so that to obtain a higher quality trigger group, both in terms of accuracy and feeling.

Chambered in 20/76 gauge and characterised by balanced and well-studied proportions, ICARO 20 is a very manoeuvrable and easy to use inertial hunting shotguns.

Not only light and beautiful, ICARO 20 is also a shotgun that requires simple maintenance. The frame, in fact, is composed of an upper receiver that hooks onto the breech, while the frame itself contains the bolt slide guides: by removing the barrel and the upper receiver, it becomes very easy to access the inside of this light hunting shotgun and carry out the ordinary maintenance and usual cleaning operations.

Available in 3 models:

- BLACK, with black surfaces obtained through anodising process and various phases of manual polishing;

- NICKEL, with the classic contrast between the nicheled frame and black upper receiver;

- TITANO20, with beautiful engravings created by Bottega Giovanelli.
