Fabarm Elos N2 Allsport Type T | 12ga Shotgun Review

Fabarm Elos N2 Allsport Type T | 12ga Shotgun Review

Today we have a special treat. We had the chance to spend a day with Travis Mears at his range (Defender Outdoors Clay Sport Ranch) to review this awesome shotgun from Fabarm. The ELOS N2 Allsport. Travis has shot this shotgun many times and sells them often in his pro shop. His insight and competitive shooting experience took this review to the next level. Travis is a exhibition shooter, and a sporting clays champion. Needless to say he knows a thing or two about what makes a good shotgun. Let's dive in.


If you have experience with the Elos N2 Shotguns please let us know your thoughts on the TFL COMMUNITY!   


The Elos N2 combo was designed to be a multi-discipline gun with multiple barrel options.




  • Specs

    • 12 gauge.
    • The Allsport has a lot of configurations. We have the Type-T combo which has a single, and double barrel. 
    • This variation also has an extra rib to change your point of impact. (either 50/50 or 65/35)
    • Single barrel is 34" O/U is 32"
    • Comes with 5 chokes (F, M, IC) - Looking for aftermarket chokes? Check out Carlson's Chokes Use Code "targetfocused20" for 20% off.
    • The length of pull is 14 3/4" - Keep in mind this is the Allsport XL. The standard Allsport is 14" LOP. Aftermarket spacers and pads are available. Our favorite pad is a Falcon Strike. (Add a FalconStrike for less recoil)
    • Drop at comb 1 1/2"
    • Drop at Monte Carlo 1 3/4"
    • Drop at heel 2 1/2"
    • This shotgun is cast off for a right-handed shooter and toed-out. There are also left-handed options available.
    • Single barrel set-up comes in at 7lbs 13oz. Double barrel comes in just over 8lbs.
    • 3lbs 8oz average trigger pull weight. This a very light and crispy trigger.
    • MSRP is $5,429 (Elos N2 Allsport Type T Combo)
    • Base model Allsport is around $3,500
  • Ergonomics

    • The black hardware and glossed dark walnut look amazing on this shotgun.
    • This Allsport has a right-hand palm swell.
    • The stock isn't the only thing on this shotgun with a wide range of adjustability. The trigger can also be moved forward or backward to match your finger size. 
    • All the tools you need to make the stock, trigger, and rib adjustments come in the case.
    • The receiver and control surfaces have some really nice modern details with a carbon-fiber type finish in various spots like the top of the hinge release.
    • Very nicely sized forend with an indentation for finger placement.
    • The vented double rib has a small white front fiber and mid-bead. 
    • Top tang safety with barrel selectors
    • The rib detaches very easily with one pin above the receiver. You can use the included choke tool to pop out the pin. Once popped, the rib slides forward slightly to detach from the barrel. This is designed very very well.
    • The overall ergonomics and build of this gun are awesome. It feels great in the hands, has tight tolerance, and is balanced right at the hinge point.


  • Recoil and Reliability

    • We'll keep it short and painless for you: This Fabarm had very manageable recoil straight back into the shoulder.
    • Cycling target loads was no problem for this shotgun. We had tons of fun shooting true pairs with Travis. 
    • You will have no issues with follow up shots using this shotgun. The combination of the light trigger, good balance, smooth swing, and minimal recoil could make this a dangerous gun in all the shotgun sports.
    • If you can speak to the reliability of an Elos N2 please let us know how it's held up on the  TFL COMMUNITY!    
    •  Travis has shot Fabarm for a long time and is a proud dealer of these shotguns. He can attest to the longevity of these guns. He also talked about the continued support you get from the Fabarm team when it comes to maintenance and replacement parts. Fabarm has exceptional customer service and quick turn-around times to get your gun back in your hands fast.
  • Breakdown/Quality of Build

    • As we've said, this gun is super intuitive. It's built well and as Travis said, will last a long time as you'll have Fabarms support for the lifetime on the gun.
    • A small thing, but this shotgun has no rattles, out-of-place noises or, loose components.
    • Fabarm goes over and above for their customers. Some companies won't have your gun back or even respond to you for 6 months sometimes. Fabarm runs a different ship. As a dealer, Travis says he's consistently gotten customers' guns shipped back in perfect condition within 10-14 days!
  • Speed Shooting

    • In every review, we typically do a speed shooting test. However, this Allsport is going to be used for your more normal shooting disciplines. So instead, we took turns testing it out on the 5 stand. Everything good we've said about this gun thus far became even more true as we started to crush targets with it. This gun certainly gets the TFL stamp of approval.


In conclusion, the Fabarm Elos N2 is a great product. You're getting up there in price but if you live and breathe clay shooting then this shotgun could be a fantastic option for you that will last a lifetime. It shot great, looks great, and covers all the bases of practicality when it comes to shooting. You're not buying this gun for these reasons alone though. We think there are two things that will continue to pay off over the lifetime of this gun. First, is the adjustability. The trigger, comb, stock, and rib can all move as you continue to learn what set-up works best for you. You don't want to get into a gun at this price point for looks alone because when it doesn't fit you, your shooting is going to suffer. The rib and barrel combo is also a huge adjustability that will pay off for sure. Instead of 3 or 4 $1,000+ guns, you have one that be altered to be affective for all disciplines. Reason two: Customer service. This is perhaps the most important thing you're paying for with this shotgun. Fabarm is going to have your back no matter what and deliver when you need them too. That is a huge thing that is becoming more rare in our modern world. 


Whether our targets in the field or our targets in life, we will only hit what we are focused on, so live the #targetfocusedlife
