Outdoor Life’s editors just announced in their 2011 Shotgun Review that this year’s shotgun of the year is the Caesar Guerini Ellipse Evo Light, a shotgun Orvis has been proud to carry and offer our customers since last year.

 The workmanship on the EVO Light received and A+ from Outdoor Life 

As the editors of Outdoor Life put it: “If by some alchemy you could distill the essence of an upland bird gun and give it physical form, it might look something like the Ellipse Evo Light from Caesar Guerini, a sexy stunner that took top honors in this year’s hotly contested shotgun evaluation. It’s a classic 20-gauge over/under game gun with both British and Italian influences. The solid ribbing on the barrels, which are topped with a single brass bead, give the gun a clean, uncluttered elegance and contrast pleasantly with the gorgeous wood and handsome extensive engraving on the coin-finished receiver… The Ellipse Evo Light shoots as well as it looks. With 28-inch barrels and a lithe 5 1⁄2-pound weight, it got on our clay birds as fast as a diving falcon, and to the same deadly effect. To a person, we raved about its handling; each of us longed to carry it for wild quail or sword-tailed cock pheasants.”

That is heavy praise indeed coming from a staff of folks who know their shotguns inside and out. It is for these great reasons, and many more, that Orvis first chose to sell the EVO Light. It is a spectacular shotgun at a price that Outdoor Life ranks as as an extremely good value, especially for the A+ they annointed it with for both Workmanship and Performance.

If you are an upland hunter in search of the perfect 20 gauge over/under, Outdoor Life found it for you and Orvis offers it to you as the exclusive US retailer.
