Shooting Gazette - - The Review -

Engi­neer­ing: 8/10 Rizzi­nis have no real is­sues; like any gun if you look af­ter them, they will last the course. Trig­ger pulls were very good and the ejec­tors did their job. Looks and fin­ish­ing: 8/10

If this is where you place sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance in mak­ing your pur­chase de­ci­sion this maybe the gun for you, in par­tic­u­lar the round ac­tion sep­a­rates it from the main­stream of­fer­ings. The gun is well fin­ished, darker wood than that on the test gun would be more to my taste, but the wood was well fig­ured.

Han­dling: 7½/10 On av­er­age speed and height birds the gun is more than ca­pa­ble, how­ever, with some at­ten­tion to the bar­rel weight, I be­lieve that the han­dling would sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove. This would be more per­ti­nent if the gun were to be used on high birds or equally fast grouse.

Value: 8/10 It’s a lot of gun for the money, com­pet­ing in a tough mar­ket­place. Cus­tomer ser­vice and re­li­a­bil­ity: 9/10 The backup comes from ASI so there should be no prob­lem in this depart­ment. The guns from this man­u­fac­turer are gen­er­ally as re­li­able as any from the main­stream. Over­all: 40½/50
