Rizzini Artemis Deluxe Small Action

Description

The Rizzini Artemis Deluxe Small Action is a break-action over-under shotgun chambered in 12 gauge, 16 gauge, 20 gauge, 28 gauge and .410. It is a deluxe, customizable, special-order version of the Artemis Small Action but costs an additional $2,000. The deluxe version offers customizable stock and drop sizes, but also an optional small action frame for the 28 gauge and .410 for an additional $750.00.

The Artemis Deluxe Small Action stock is made of hand finished Turkish walnut, setting it apart from Rizzini’s more economical models. It also features a game scene etched in relief as well as scroll engraving on metal surfaces. The action is forged from solid nickel chrome, a superior material that results in increased durability.

As with the Teutonic and Aurum models, the Artemis Deluxe Small Action features flat forged frames and barrels made of nickel chrome steel, which has better durability over a wide range of temperatures. The Artemis Deluxe Small Action comes with interchangeable chokes. All bores are chrome lined, allowing for better corrosion resistance. The gun also offers brazed ribs, meaning the rib is furnace heated to increase bore strength and durability.
 
As with most Rizzini models, the Artemis Deluxe Small Action features a Prince of Wales pistol grip stock or a straight grip stock. The Prince of Wales grip, a partial pistol grip, is thought to derive its name from Edward the VII, who favored this styling. The gun also features automatic shell ejectors, a single selective trigger that can be used for the firing of either barrel, and engraved hand-finished game scenes in relief. The stock is hand checkered for better grip.

Rizzini is an Italian family of gunmakers founded in 1966 by Battista
Rizzini. A number of Rizzini family arms are available to North American
domestic buyers through manufacturer and retailer agreements. The
Artemis Small is made available through Connecticut Shotgun.

Rizzini offers the Artemis Deluxe Small Action as an heirloom quality, customizable version of its Artemis Small Action field shooting shotgun.
