Beautifully struck chopper lump barrels are engraved "Flli RIZZINI MAGNO V.T." on unmatted portion of slightly raised flat game rib. Barrel flats are stamped with 1987 Italian nitro proofs for 2-3/4" chambers. Beautifully filed ogee backed coin finished boxlock action with removable bottom inspection plate features non-automatic safety and single non-selective trigger. Action is engraved with very well cut full coverage of a unique design incorporating swan-like dragons with flared wings on sides with scrolling acanthus emanating from their mouths instead of flames. Matching acanthus covers remainder of action and surrounds extremely well detailed Bulino scene of brace of red grouse flying toward viewer from hilltop moor. The detail of this scene is stunning, as could only be produced by master engraver Firmo Fracassi, whose signature is in grass in bottom of scene. Small bow trigger guard with matching acanthus has serial number on tang. Broadly marbled and stump figured European walnut straight grip buttstock with checkered wood butt, and features classic styling with borderless point pattern checkering on semi-diamond hand. Matching splinter ejector forend has Anson release. Excellent, very close to new, appears essentially unfired except for proof, with only the faintest of light handling and assembly marks in all wood and metal finishes. Mechanically crisp. Gun is housed in its brown leather case with stitched leather corners, by Nizzoli, which is lined in olive green felt with black leather Flli Rizzini label in lid. Case is semi-French fitted for gun and accessories which include two piece brass and walnut cleaning rod and round oil bottle. Case is in excellent condition. These beautifully made guns are no longer produced, and are highly sought after. The engraving by Fracassi adds a whole new dimension.
