About Company

The history of Breda sporting semiauto starts in one of the most renowned industrial groups of the Italian twentieth century, operating in the most diverse fields (engineering, shipbuilding, arms, iron and steel industry)
The production of hunting shotguns began in the very early post-war years: in fact, the first long recoil Breda sporting semiauto appeared in 1947, fully entering the history of the brand’s enthusiasts and collectors with the name 1001.

The year 1953 represents the turning point: the post-war period in fact required a strong restructuring of the Group that leads to the creation of the new Breda Meccanica Bresciana, a company exclusively dedicated to the production of light hunting shotguns, semi-automatic and over&under.

Since that time, Breda sporting semiauto have become a true icon in the world of the hunting art and have won a place of honour in the hearts of many hunters, who still today preserve their firearms with care and dedication.
