Breda Brescia auto 12
 
i have got a 12 ga. auto shotgun. it says on it Breda Brescia, has a patent number and says distributed from a town in Conn.
it has long barrel with venting near then end apparently to cut down on recoil. it seems to be a heavy gun to me.
it is a real good looking gun.
it is hard to get information since there does not appear to be a model number.
any of you know anything about this gun?

Was the name of the city new haven

"mfd by lyman middlefield conn. usa" right up at the place it is vented to soften the recoil

ok , shows what i know about old guns, what i was told was to vent to lessen recoil is probably a choke. the barrel may be 30" .

at the receiver is an number

I think we're going to need pics. A couple of the whole gun, and one for each marking. Make sure to post a pic of the barrel stamp. I cant seem to find any exact info with the provided information.

i will see if my wife can do pics. i have cerebral palsy and i am a bit shacky in the hands so pics are hard for me. i'll see what i can do.

bredas were imported in the late 70's to early 80's. they are a blowback action similar to a A5 browning. they tend to kick a little and werent all that popular. it never made a cut into the 1100 market and they dwindled off.

i need a shorter gun. i will either trade it or have it sawed off. i have short arms and lots of tendonitis that makes a long heavy gun just too much now. it is for defense of the house as i no longer hunt anywhere but kroger and winn dixie. matter of fact i only fish at cap't dee's.

sounds like the gun has a lyman polychoke or cutts on the barrel.

You could reduce the length of pull by having the stock cut down a couple of inches. Comparable to a youth setup on a shotgun.

heck, just trade it off and get something that fits.
