New Technical Points: Model 03 New version with Maxi 70 choke tubes
The choke tubes Maxi 70 and Maxi 90
Sporting Clay version is supplied with 5 internal choke tubes (MAXI 70) manufactured with the same High Technology used for the production of our barrels.
They are longer than normal (70 mm against 40 mm of the usual length of choke tubes) with long cone called “conic system” where also the marginal shot pellets maintain still a good impact force and excellent distribution of pattern. This is a further new development following the actual demand of many Sporting Clay shooters.
On demand, the inter-changeable Maxi 90 choke tubes are available as accessories. They have a total length of 90 mm, they are internal for 70 mm and increase the barrel length by 20 mm.They are manufactured with a longer cone to ensure shooting that will astonish with the brilliant results.
Both Maxi 70 and Maxi 90 are manufactured from the same steel we use for the barrels to allow the same thermal expansion during shooting. The choke tubes are strong, with a suitable thickness to prevent deformations.
Maxi 70 and Maxi 90 are excellent also with steel shot ammunition.
The new choke tubes Maxi 70 and Maxi 90 cannot be fitted in Marocchi 03 ,previous version, that have choke tubes of 40 mm .
Ejectors.A new ejectors system has been recently released in accordance to newly available ammunition the shooting performance could be optimised again.They can be dismounted easily and without tools for cleaning purposes. This is a great advantage also for future replacement needs because they can be changed very easily and with small fitting work.

Highlights: Model 03 New version with Maxi 70 choke tubes
Action Machined from a solid forging to the closed tolerances by computerised milling process.
Trigger The trigger mechanism is designed to provide a very fast locking time without the slightest creep of drag. The Trigger blade can be adjusted to allow perfect finger placement.
Ejectors A new ejector system has been recently released. In accordance to newly available ammunition the shooting performance could be optimised again.
Barrels Like the action body the barrels are produced by the most advanced machinery available. This gives perfect concentricity to the internal bores and the most even external profile for both - safety and the correct weight.
Choke tubes Sporter and Field models are equipped with a set of five screw-in chokes providing the ideal shot pattern for every target at any range. They are manufactured with the same care as the barrels and match perfectly to the internal dimensions of our barrels. The latest version of Marocchi 03 model is provided with Maxi 70 choke tubes (on demand also the Maxi 90 choke tubes) Please see more details under section "New technical points".
Locking System The gun is provided with a longitudinal cross bolt. The hinge pins are made from high tensile carbon steel to ensure a smooth opening of the breach. while the full with retractable bolt locks the barrels securely when the gun is closed.
Gun balance Fast but controllable handling characteristics, stock dimensions allow a quick, accurate and consistent gun mount.
Patterning The Trap barrels are “Big Bored” : an increased bore of a min. of 18,7mm to a max of 18,9mm. That reduces recoil during the process of shotting. This idea came from the US and has been improved by our team. The increased bore of the barrel tubes, reduces the friction coefficient of the pellets during shooting and consequently recoil is minimized. The Sporting barrels have conventional bores diameters from a min of 18,4 to a max of 18.6. So are our field barrels but they come with a Magnum chamber in 12/76. The latest version of Marocchi 03 model, is provided with Maxi 70 choke tubes. They are longer than normal: 70 mm against 40 mm of the usuall with long cone called “conic system” where also the marginal shot pellets maintain still a good impact force and excellent distribution of pattern.
