The Iside series of side-by-side shotguns, made by Fabbrica Armi Isodoro Rizzini, lands stateside courtesy of importer Italian Firearms Group.

The shotguns, offered in seven total models, offer functionality paired with a sleek look. All models are built around the company’s demi-bloc barrel coupling system. The coupling system and Iside compact box lock action serve up a lightweight shotgun without the use of aluminum alloys.

The side-by-side shotguns are available in 12, 16, 20, 28 and .410 gauges and each boasts its own dedicated, rounded steel frame. Additionally, each model touts F.A.I.R.’s own X-cones. Barrel lengths measure between 26-inches and 30-inches.

Isides, depending on specific model, come with either manual or automatic extractors and various levels of engraving and checkering. Each model also features different grades of European walnut for the stock and forend pieces.

The guns are manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility in the Lombardy district in Italy. Prices on the Iside side-by-side shotgun series range from $1,475 up to $6,000.
