Artemis Small Action

rizzini artemis small action

The Rizzini Artemis Small Action is a break-action over-under shotgun chambered in 28 gauge and .410. 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 Rizzini Artemis Small Action is made available through Connecticut Shotgun.

Rizzini high-end shotguns typically have the same features and vary by the scene engraved on the receiver. The scene on the Artemis Small Action is of game birds soaring through the air and outlined by vines.

The Artemis Small Action features a Prince of Wales stock made from a hand finished Turkish walnut stock. The Prince of Wales grip, a partial pistol grip, is thought to derive its name from Edward the VII, who favored this styling.

Similar to the Teutonic and Aurum models, the Artemis Small Action features flat forged frames and barrels made of nickel chrome steel, which has better durability over a wide range of temperatures. The bore is chrome lined and blued and has adjustable screw in chokes.

The barrel has brazed ribs running along the top and the rib is furnace heated to increase bore strength and durability. It also has automatic shell ejectors and a single selective trigger that can be used for the firing of either barrel.

Rizzini recommends the Artemis Small Action for general small game and field shooting.
