Marocchi SI 12 Inertia Operated Shotguns

I knew when I said that the Browning was the first post-patent Inertia operated shotgun, a reader would find one produced earlier 😉 A reader pointed out the SI 12 shotgun made by the Italian firm Marocchi since 2009. You readers are just to clever for me.

[ Many thanks to Julio for the tip. ]
