I've never owned one, but a number of my shooting buddies have them.  They are very nice guns for the money.  They seem to use the generic Italian action (B. Rizzini, FAIR, Fausti, etc, etc), but they also seem to do the best job with it.  

They have a rounded action solid rib 20 gauge with POW grip (don't know the name of it) that would get my attention if I was looking for a nice, but not insanely priced, bird gun.

The only thing I don't like about them (and this is true of all the "generic" Italian guns) is the single massive underlug for locking - makes for a tall receiver for the gauge - but they they don't cost $25-35k either.

Guerini has guns with my team and I have a Summit LTD with 34" and 30" barrels.  They are built very well and seem to hold up to a lot, and I mean a lot of shooting.  The range guns we have are all Summit's incl two trap combos...  Had one forearm crack and it was replaced over night.

All in all I think they are great guns and their support, as has been mentioned, is way up there...

I have not had the chance to work with any of their field guns.

Can one get double triggers on the field guns?

I guess I could look it up on the Guerini website, but I like it here better.
