Fabarm XLR5 Waterfowler Shotgun Review

The Fabarm XLR5 Waterfowler shotgun features an oversize bolt release and safety, right- or left-hand actions and the Kyrptek camo pattern

Ever wish you had a waterfowl gun that was perfect for those rainy, cold, mornings in the blind? Such as when everything needs to be oversized because you have gloves on? Look no further than the Fabarm XLR5 Waterfowler.

The XLR5 Waterfowler from Fabarm USA is a shotgun built around the needs of the die-hard waterfowler. TheXLR5 achieves its high performance from the revolutionary Pulse Piston system that acts as progressive brake; eliminating any valve system and allows for a variety of different ammo types.

To maximize downrange performance, Fabarm incorporated the proven TriBore barrel design into the XLR5. This tapered bore allows for reduced recoil and improved pattern performance. Fabarm even created a special competition choke tube, the EXIS DK, tuned for non-toxic ammo in the most popular pellet sizes that is an available feature.

All of this equals a gun that is simpler, contains less parts to clean, and is more reliable.

The Fabarm XLR5 Waterfowler is available in 12 gauge, and either a right or left-hand action. Hunters can also choose between 28- and 30-inch barrel lengths.

Coated in Kryptek Banshee Camouflage and Soft touch finish, the Fabarm XLR5 Waterfowler is priced at $1,650.00

Fabarm USA PVD coated the bolt, nickel plated the chokes and covered the external metal surfaces with camo on the XLR5 Waterfowler to reduce rust. The synthetic stock is also coated with a Soft Touch camo process to create a rubberized feel.
