First MK2 in 12ga is the basic version of the range, with its neat and linear design and together with its modest engraving running all along the receiver it is ideal for all hunters who would like a resistant O&U, completely made in Itay, without compromising on style.
OVER & UNDER series
Marocchi thinks of hunters at 360° and for all those who prefer the Over&Under shotgun Marocchi has created the series FIRST, a model created with the intent to meet the most diverse needs thanks to an Italian quality shotgun at a truly competitive price.
Available in 12 gauge, with manual or automatic extractors, or in the practical and handy small gauges 20, 28, 36 (.410)
Lightness is a very important feature for an Over&Under and FIRST series perfectly incorporates it, thanks to the use of Ergal, a high-performance aluminum alloy, for the production of the action and tail.
Even the most demanding outdoor experinces will be pleasant with an Over&Under that guarantees this level of portability and handling.
Both rapid shots and second barrel firing will be more quick and accurate than ever thanks to the incredible balance of weights. The perfect weight distribution is fundamental to accentuate the shotgun’s wielding and pointing qualities.
Inside the action the series FIRST contains a heart made of very respectable mechanical qualities: after careful control, each component is skillfully assembled by the hands of our craftsmen in order to obtain a high quality shotgun in terms of safety, reliability and durability over time.
Marocchi, for its over&unders of the series First, opted for the production of 50mm chokes. They are built with the same steel used for the barrels, since we believe that using materials with the same elasticity favors a better distribution of the shots in the pattern. Chromed internally, our chokes have a very low roughness, which reduces the deformation of the lead during the passage.
For those who would like a more elegant and refined look, Marocchi’s proposal is “Gold” line. First MK2 Gold Black in 12ga comes with a completely burnished receiver embellished by the gilded name of the model and a refined gold line running all along the receiver.
An O&U thought for those who love tradition, First MK2 Gold comes with a new resistant steel receiver and a finishing embellished by an interesting mix of colours obtained through to color-case hardening process, that besides giving this particular color, it gives more resistance to the receiver.
First MK2-DL12 is the right choice for those who don’t compromise on practicality and elegance: this model features on both sides and on bottom plate of steel receiver, typical of First MK2, an elegant and delicate floral engraving completed with flying gilded animals. The engraving is enriched with black ink to enhance its details.
First MK2 DL12 is then completed with oil-finished walnut wood with a fine aesthetic finish.
