All IFG Sabatti rifles are proof tested by Italian law to C.I.P. standards at 25% over pressure of standard factory ammunition. The barrels are measured before and after firing 2 over pressure rounds and checked for any changes in measurements. Only then will the barrels be stamped with the Government's Proof House stamp and returned to the manufacturer for sale.
Fiber Optic front and rear express sight. The rifle is pre sighted and regulated for use with 325 grain Hornady FTX ammunition at 2050 FPS. However the rear sight is adjustable for Windage and elevation adjustments are made by replacing the front sight blades available at IFG.
A Weaver style scope base is included with mounting screws. An optional 12 mm European quick debatable Scope base is available from IFG. The scope base is designed to straddle the quarter rib behind the rear sight and attaches with 4 provided screws. The European 12 mm Contessa type base is the preferred base for this type of rifle due to its low profile, strong recoil lug and the ability to quickly detach your scope and still use your express sights over the base. Also this type of base does not detract from the clean appearance of the rifle.
The beautiful enhanced walnut stock with full Bavarian cheek piece and beavertail forearm are hand checkered and oil finished. For added comfort, the stock has a vented recoil pad.
We provide a set of non-detachable sling swivels with the rifle but they are not installed because some hunter's prefer not to have a sling on a DGR. If you prefer sling swivels, the provided sling swivels can be install by any competent gunsmith at your option.

Craig Boddington recently tested and reviewed several of the new Sabatti rifles and said they were some of the finest double rifles he has ever shot at any price. He was so impressed that he purchased one of the Sabatti rifles he reviewed. See his Article in Petersen Hunting Dangerous Game Issue December 2016.
