I have an I. Rizzini (F.A.I.R.) gun, imported by New England Arms. It's a model 500.
Stock is 14 5/8 lop to curved, hard plastic pad, 14.5 to end of wood. 2.25 DAH 1.25 DAC with a barely perceptible right hand cast, almost neutral. Relaxed Prince of Wales grip. It weighs 6lbs 2.5 ounces, has 28 inch barrels and a single, selectable trigger. It has interchangeable choke tubes and comes with cylinder and improved cylinder tubes.
This gun has been hunted and it has several small dings in the wood and a few shiny spots along the edges of the rib and barrels where bluing is worn.
The major flaw is on the left side of the action. It looks like it was put into a slightly damp gun case at some point. It has some discoloration and some micro pitting that is hard to photograph, but there nonetheless.
If you're looking for a hunting 16, you could shoot this gun for a lifetime and never even notice the imperfections. Slaughter Gunsmithing would convert this gun to double triggers for a very reasonable fee if you prefer it that way.

I'd like to get $1,600 shipped for this gun. I'll list in on the auction site over the weekend, but figured I'd give folks here first crack at it.

Shoot me an email if you like to see the photos.

All best wishes[/img]

I would also consider a partial trade for a round back, long recoil (11-48, AL48, sportsman 4Cool 16 or 20ga.

Best wishes

Do you know what Slaughter Gunsmithing charges to convert to DT's?

Putz463, sorry for the slow reply. I believe it was around $200, but that was several years ago.

Appreciate the info, I'll give them a shout and confirm.

Probably shouldn't do this but, check your PM.

Apparently, I'm off base on this one. Price drop to $1,450 shipped with 5 day inspection period. Will consider other shotguns in trade.

Thanks
