Thread: Rizzini.......

  1. #1

    Default Rizzini.......

    I am contemplating an Artemis Deluxe and was wondering if anyone has feedback on this, or other Rizzini guns.

    As a comparison, the other gun I am looking at is a Silver Pigeon V.

    Any insight is appreciated.

    Thank You.

    I have a Cortona Grande Sporting, they are or were made by Rizzini. Now they are slightly different, but not really, and imported under the F.A.I.R name. They all are nice guns and all are alike. Same family relatives that all sort of split to do their own thing. Cortona was the name Kalispell Caseline imported them as. Some outfit in TX is now doing the F.A.I.R line. The Carrera for example is the same gun as my Grande Sporting.

    There is some good reads on the whole division of the family members. Caesar G is another, and you see the same style in the guns. Why all the Caesar G, fair, Cortona, Rizzini etc, will fit and feel the same. Each one has a different name for the same guns.

    I just bought a new Rizzini Vertex Sporting from Sportsmans Warehouse. Should be here Monday. Heck of a sale on them. They are Clearance on Rizzini right now. I like my Cortona (Rizzini) fine. I have shot the hell out of it training, trials and hunting. So that's why I bought this one. I am sure it will fit the same. I hope LOL

    I was going to by an Atremis years ago really likes the styling and weight , then Sigarms imported the S A5 uplander in every way it looks like the Artimus on the underside it Marked Rizinni

    I have owned the gun for 15 years or so , it is a 12 ga with closer to a 20 ga weight .

    Were yoiu able to order that from them online or did you have to go to the store to get it. Their website says no online sales so I am a bit confused.

    LOL Jake, not exactly. Yes that is a good story. There is no store in MN any more, so I called the ND and Iowa store to start. ND had one IA did not. They sent me a photo and told me they could ship. I said OK fine. But the wood was plain old plain old. And I wanted a nice piece this time with some figure in it.

    I was given the location of about 28 stores nation wide who still had one. So I started calling trying to get a quick photo. All started telling me they only ship store to store. I was like WTF? No FFL shipping?. So I thought I would have them send it to Williston ND then. But then ND came back and told me the same BS. That means 16 hrs driving, plus the back ground check?

    Trying to get 1 single photo at some places was a bummer. Young lazy brats. I was polite, and explained I was serious, yet did not wish to shell out 2 G's for a gun unseen, and wanted a nice looking one. I got pissed at how some stores acted, and whined to corporate. The corporate guys were great. They said call them back, find the one you want and let them know we will take care of getting it shipped to you.

    They did just that, and customer service was suddenly stupendous, with exception of the South Jordan store. They were a joke. I have no clue what that gun looks like LOL. The gun was shipped to my FFL free shipping. Tracking says it is an hr away!

    The sig guns were Rizzini. I received my new Vertex Monday. Good fit so I am happy. I will put a new butt pad on however. The stock one is kind of bland. I have a sand to fit limb saver that will give the feel I think will fit me even better. But I will have no issues shooting with it. I plan to pattern it and see where it peppers this week. Looks like a quality OU for under 2 grand. It did come with a nice locking case. And right now Rizzini will send you a free shooting vest for buying some models. I have a new vest on the way .
