Fratelli Rizzini are known for making some of the finest guns in the world. Their R 2 Boxlock is no longer produced but examples are in high demand. This fine gun has 26" chopper lump barrels with flat matted game rib, that are engraved "COSTRUTTO ESPRESSAMENTE PER GIANOBERTO LUPI" (well known author of books on Italian shotguns). Barrel flats are stamped with 1979 Italian nitro proofs for 3" chambers, and with makers name. Coin finished boxlock ogee backed action features non-automatic safety and single non-selective trigger. Action is engraved with 60% coverage classic rose and scroll. Removable trigger plate is engraved with game scene depicting three flushing Hungarian partridge.

Well cut point pattern checkering is at grip. Small beavertail ejector forend has Anson release. Gun is housed in high quality dark brown leather case with stitched leather corners. Interior is lined in green velvet. Excellent, very close to new, retaining nearly all original finishes on all wood and metal surfaces. Barrels silvered at bit at muzzles and with blue fading at breech ends. Coin finish of action is mostly bright, with some small flecks on tops of fences. There are also a few minor marks in wood finish. Bores are excellent. Action is tight. Barrels are on face. Mechanically excellent. Case leather is excellent, as is interior. These R2's are lovely guns!
