Unparalleled production of hunting and sports firearms

Unique. Original. Distinctive. These are three adjectives that best define a Breda shotgun: whether it is the production of hunting or sports shotguns, every single product that leaves the specialised production departments of Breda stands out for its high-profile technical features, and for unparalleled finishes and decorations that have made the history of Italian armoury design.

The hunting and sports shotguns branded Breda follow a careful hand-crafted finishing process which, according to the specific model, means the utmost accurate hand polishing of the covers, the meticulous brushing of the receivers, the modern anodizing treatments and the particular engravings, handmade with ink, that are then fixed in ovens.

Clear or opaque finishes, recently enlarged with the modern special Cerakote varnishing, complete a range of processes carried out scrupulously to offer a product of the highest quality standards. Depending on the type of shotgun, for hunting or sports, each process is constantly monitored so that the gun is delivered to the customer in all its beauty, guaranteeing at the same time excellent strength and durability over the years.

The master engravers of the Val Trompia

The passion for meticulous attention to detail has led the company to collaborate more and more assiduously with the expert craftsmen of Val Trompia, where master engravers of long experience and superfine taste practice.

The production of Breda hunting shotguns makes use of engravings realized with rolling procedure, then followed by manual finishes that highlight the depth of the details even more. Other types of engravings are carried out with sophisticated 3D lasers or, for even more special requests, master engravers are called upon to perform the work entirely by hand.

The refined decoration

Breda shotguns, highly renowned in the world of hunting shotguns, are becoming ever more appreciated and chosen by sportsmen from all over the world to practice the most diverse disciplines such as sport shooting, clay shooting and dynamic shooting.

The precious decorations that enrich different Breda shotgun models create suggestive plant compositions, evocative faunal scenes, or even graceful metaphorical figures, as well as modern avant-garde themes capable of giving to Breda shotguns a refined and elegant style that is always recognizable and of great effect.


The history of Breda shotguns has its roots in one of the most renowned industrial groups of the 20th century in Italy. Since then, Breda shooting and hunting shotguns have become a true icon in the world of sport shooting and in the art of hunting, gaining a place of honour in the hearts of those who still today preserve their own weapons with care and dedication. Breda is history, it is emotion, it is passion, it is family.


Breda brings its creations to life in the armoury district of Val Trompia, Brescia, where master craftmens with long experience and superfine taste operate their craft. The precious decorations are conceived and designed by artists and master engravers who create suggestive plant compositions, modern avant-garde themes, evocative faunal scenes or even graceful metaphorical figures, capable of giving Breda shotguns a refined and elegant style, always recognisable and to great effect.
