Rizzini BR110 Sporter
• $2,395 • 12-gauge • 8 lb. • 30-in. barrels The test team took an immediate liking to the BR110 Sporter by Rizzini. With some competition guns, you end up wondering what exactly justifies their price tags. Not in this instance. This newest addition to the BR110 line is an excellent all-around sporting-clays gun. Everything about it feels right. The gun’s 8-pound weight and 30-inch barrels are both ideal for sporting clays. And no matter what kind of target you’re presented with, this gun “just seems to find the bird,” as one tester put it. The stock fit all of us well. And even when we were taking fast pairs, we didn’t have any problems getting the gun moving. It is also beautifully built. The deep, even bluing on the barrels makes the elegant raised rib look even better. The wood has a gorgeous figure to it, and the checkering is nearly flawless. The coating on the receiver has a grayish hue that contrasts pleasantly with the rest of the gun. The triggers are light and crisp, tripping at just over 3 pounds each. In a strong field of contenders, this shotgun earned the highest grades and the Editor’s Choice award.
