Hatsan Arms, the Turkish gun manufacturer, has launched the Hatsan Escort Missione, an upgraded, premium version of its hugely popular Hatsan Escort shotgun. Hatsan shotguns, which are distributed in the UK exclusively by Edgar Brothers, are renowned as being highly reliable and superb value-for-money, and backed by the Edgar Brothers 3 Year warranty.
Derek Edgar, Managing Director of Edgar Brothers, commented: “Every year we see the quality improve from Hatsan. What was once a workhorse of a shotgun has now turned into a model that is truly challenging the more upmarket brands. Aimed at clay shooters the new Hatsan Escort Missione joins the Luxano and Supreme in this higher-end gun market but at an extremely affordable price which is great news for shooters.”
The Hatsan Escort Missione boasts a wooden stock with a high-grade gloss wrap, an upgraded silver action and engraving, a fast loading system and a smart valve piston. A checkered, ventilated anti-glare raised rib with a high visibility front-sight will help improve aim while the steel-shot-suitable multi 5 choke system gives shooters the option of using the shotgun in a wide variety of shooting scenarios.
The Missione is available in both 12 and 20 gauge formats as a 2+1 shotgun and also as a Section 1 firearm with a 4+1 or a 9+1 magazine capacity. Barrels are made of nickel-chromium-molybdenum steel and are available in lengths of 24”, 26”, 28” or 30”. It is capable of firing both 3”/76 mm and 2 ¾”/70 mm cartridges ranging from loads of 7/8 oz (24g) to 2 oz (57g) magnum shells.
