    what have i brought???

    i was in the local hunting and fishing store a few months back and spyed this little 22 on the 2nd hand rack i thought thatís a different one i left it there
    i went in a few weeks later and it was still there i had another look and it was cheap enough i just chucked it on tick and droped a few bucks there way each week
    picked it up today and i still have no clue what it is the guys in hunting and fishing couldn't tell me anything about it

    its made in Italy and google had very limited info but found out they came with 4 and 8 round mags which i have one of each

    its a neat little rifle but what is it

    In my best Italiano voice "Itsah littleah 22ah"
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The Daffini Brothers (Fri Daffini) and the company Daffini Libero Arms have been well respected gun makers in Brescia Italy from the end of WWII on.

    There were a group of them who registered with the Brescia proof house just after WWII: Daffini Hannibal,Catherine Daffini , Emiliano Daffini . Joseph Daffini . Daffini Lat. & F . Free Daffini . Peter Daffini

    I note that they used Brothers, (Fri) even tho Catherine is unlikely to be a brother.

    Brescia, Italy is the heart of an area in Northern Italy famous for centuries for gunmaking. It has numerous factories that employ gun craftsmen and schools that teach the various industrial arts involved in gunmaking. There are and have been many small arms makers that make arms not very well known outside of the country of origin. These gunmakers also contract or specialize in making the components of the fireams bought and sold under different brands, providing lockworks, barrels, stocks, etc. Components are proofed by State agencies, and so marked (ex- PSF proof designates smokeless powder proof). Brescia is similar to Liege Belgium in that regard.

    Daffini Brothers is registered at the Brescia proof house, and both makes components and finishes guns assembled from their own and others components.

    Current contact information:

    Daffini Libero Armi
    Vill. Montini Via VIII 2
    Brescia
    25060
    Italy

    Shameless rip from google Translate:

    "The Daffini Brothers (Fri Daffini) and the company Daffini Libero Arms have been well respected gun makers in Brescia Italy from the end of WWII on.

    There was a group of them who registered with the Brescia proof house just after WWII: Daffini Hannibal, Catherine Daffini, and Emiliano Daffini. Joseph Daffini. Daffini Lat. & F. Free Daffini. Peter Daffini

    Brothers, (Fri) even tho Catherine is unlikely to be a brother.

    Brescia, Italy is located in the center of Northern Italy. It has numerous factories that employ gun craftsmen and schools that teach the various industrial arts involved in gunmaking. There are many small arms makers that make arms not very well known outside the country of origin. These gunmakers also contract or specialize in making the components of the firearms, providing lockworks, barrels, stocks, etc. Components are proofed by State agencies, and so marked (ex-PSF proof designates smokeless powder proof). Brescia is similar to Liege Belgium in that regard.

    Daffini Brothers is registered at the Brescia proof house, and both components and finishes are assembled from their own and others components.

    There is no current US importer, and your guns do not appear to have an importer's mark on them so they came in privately.

    The double shotgun is the same as above, a post WWI Italian gun made by the Daffini Brothers.

    By the way, Libero means "Liberty" or "Freedom".

    The company is currently active, and their guns are common throughout Europe, more so than in the US, again due to the lack of a US importer. Most of the information you will find in Greek. (Google translate is a blessing.)

    Current contact information:

    Daffini Libero Armi
    Ville. Montini Via VIII 2
    Brescia
    25060
    italy

    Tel: +.39.030.300.652

    Brand new regular production Daffini hammer doubles sell for $ 550, however, Daffini is also well known in Europe for producing custom guns.

    There was a single listing at Gunbaker for a Daffini custom double hammer dating from approx 1950 which you can view at http://auction-e.com/italian-libero-...200961134.html which sold for approx $ 15,000.

    That being the case, if this is a truely fine gun with truly fine engraving etc, it will be worthwhile. Worth checking with someone like the gun-library at Cabellas or a specialty shotgun dealer. But MOST Daffini doubles will be worth $ 550, since that's the cost of a NEW one (albeit in Australia).

    The single-shot guns are so special, and they're singles ..... "because they are basically, no one knows what they are,
