Breda Xanthos Gold

The Xanthos Gold is Breda’s flagship inertia driven shotgun. Its rich design is the result of over 1,000 hours of work by master engraver Diego Bonsi from the world famous Laboratorio Incisioni, B&B. Pure gold and silver wire is inlaid into each receiver by the hands of skilled Italian craftsman. The stock is made of very fancy walnut that is hand oiled and rubbed into a lustrous finish. The Xanthos Gold celebrates the “Queen of the Forest”, the woodcock.
Product Description


    The desire for quality, reliability and uniqueness are just a few of the characteristics that have led to the creation of our ”avant-garde” line which reaches its highest peak in the semiautomatic Xanthos. Delveloped and produced using the renowned technology that differentiates our company; the Xanthos makes the most of the inetrial movement system originally conceived in the mind of Bruno Civolani; one of the most outstanding designers to have ever worked in the semi-auto field.

    Xanthos is produced by Breda to the highest industrial standards, with the result being a shotgun with a quite unique mechanical accuracy and high ballistic output. Thanks to our R&D, an innovate stell receiver is produced using a unique manufacturing process which results in an evenly distributed highgrade stell thickness thtoughout the receiver.

    Xanthos is today the only semi-auto shotgun that is completely made from steel, yet the gun remains incredibly light (as light as a semi-auto made from Alloy). The inertial movement system is effectively combined with Breda’s superior block-locking system which combines simple functionality and a high level of gun safety.

    Additional Xanthos features: simple to operate, a cartidge cut off system that is fast and quick. Plus the news steel ‘heart’ (receiver) is fitted with Breda’s renowned steel barrels that are made from the highest quality steel that give Breda barrels a significant advantage over lesser smoth-bore barrels.
