    I have a Rizzini s2000 sporter.In looking at the Guerini's I was wondering if the barrels would interchange? They look to be the same,made by the same family. Just wondering? Thanks for any and all info...Ray

    There's a good article that I can't seem to find now but I believe it was posted over on shotgunworld.com. I think it's called "The 3 Rizzini's" or something to that effect. You might try searching. Good article in reference to I. Rizzini, B. Rizzini, ect.

    Georgio Guerini is the nephew of one of the Rizzini's. What I've been told is that he wanted more of the company or more responsibility at least. When he was turned down, he left to form Guerini. Of course this is all scuttlebutt.

    You are correct. Georgio apprenticed under B. Rizzini. There are
    two or three different Rizzini making shotguns. I don't know why
    he left but the Guerini is an improved gun over the Rizzini. I
    doubt if the barrels will interchange.

    I posted the Rizzini article on the above link. I found it somewhere. I just saved it. It's about half way down the first page of the thread. Mark

    "Guerini is an improved gun over the Rizzini."

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    That is simply not true. If anything the B. Rizzini is better than a Guerini!
    The Guerini's put more into SHOW (wood and metal) but the base gun is no more than a Rizzini copy. The F.A.I.R and I. Rizzini are cheaper and made to a price point. The F.Ill Rizzini are HIGH priced some 100k+ guns.

    As far as B. Rizzini vs. Guerini they are both well made underlug designs.

    Much discussed subject. I have owned and shot both of them. Taken them apart and any differences are very, very slight. The Brescia/Val Trompia guns are all very similar because why mess w/ a successful design. Rizzini, Fausti, Guerini, Padrone and many others including Galazan's new mid-priced O/U. Just my opinion.

    F.III Rizzini for both R1 and R2 are high priced SxS in boxlock and sidelock but when you cornered Fabbri or Perazzi regarding side by side shotguns - both agreed the Rizzini sdelock was a better shotgun than any SxS either had made - at least as of 1995 when this conversation was had ... and were higher priced than Rizzini but that was largely about who did the engraving to pick a final price point over the base 'best grade' gun.

    Except for re-sale value I would pick any of the three over a Purdey or Holland on a price/value basis.

    I don't know didley about any of the others (Rizzini/Guerini O/U shotguns).

    Regards,

    Bill
