Abercrombie & Fitch
The teenagers of today know Abercrombie and Fitch for their t-shirts and blue jeans. Most have no clue that A&F were the biggest and best hunting and fishing outfitters for almost 100 years (1892-1977).
I have two Abercrombie and Fitch shotguns to share with you, one is a .410 and the other a 12 gauge. These are beautiful guns. The 12 was made by Renato Gamba of Italy and the .410 was made by Perazzi, another well known Italian gun maker.
Abercrombie & Fitch used to be a world renown hunting outfitter, today they sell blue jeans and t-shirts to teenagers. Times do change. I found this gun on auctionarms.com a few years ago and instantly fell in love with the workmanship. My stepson (only knowing the Abercrombie & Fitch of today) laughed the first two weeks I carried the gun to the Turkey Shoots.
The folding .410 pictured here reads "canne cromate" (refers to the barrel, chrome inside) and "acciaio speciale breda" (refers to special steel) underneath the Abercrombie & Fitch Co.
