Those Bernies are good, modern hammerguns at reasonable prices.

They made a lot of guns with barrels that are on the short side (at least for current tastes). I seem to recall at one point, their standard barrel lengths for guns exported to the States were 25 1/2" (with the somewhat unusual choke combination of C/M) or 26 3/4" (chokes IC/IM). I had one of those 26 3/4" guns in 16ga (hammerless--one of the Roma series guns, which are also very good guns at reasonable prices). Shot it lights out. Not sure why I got rid of it, but I'd like to find another one. Unfortunately, you don't run into a lot of 16ga Bernies.

I once saw a 16 gauge Bernardelli Brescia hammer gun in a gun show.
Like a fool, I walked by.
I have never seen another one.

When we were importing Bernardelli in the 70-80s the the trend at that time was more toward the 26" bbl guns and some 25". However, I could specify any bbl length that I wanted them to make for us.

So never prejudge the length of the barrels on any European maker
