As the auctioneer states, these guns were made in Italy by B. Rizzini for Sigarms (Sig Sauer) and the retailed by L.L. Bean. I’ve always thought they were great looking double and great deals. This one looks little used, and it even comes with its original case, chokes tubes, and accessories.

I put a post about this gun the other day. The owner just knocked $300 off the price, making it an even better deal

If you’re looking for a 28 gauge O/U, here’s one that looks like a great deal.

These shotguns were built in Italy by Battista Rizzini, imported by SIGARMS, and sold through L.L. Bean for a few years – I think from around 2003-2004. This one is a TR-20 (same as B. Rizzini’s Aurum Classic) and it features an action machined from a solid block of alloy steel and hard-chromed bores.

L.L. BEAN New Englander Over-Under 28g, 28” barrels: Nicely figured round knob stock with thin black Pachmayr pad, single selective trigger, automatic ejectors, ventilated rib, 100% case coloring, bluing, and wood finish, lightly used, light and well balanced gun, at 6 lbs 2oz ( on my scale) with a long length of pull, includes upgraded factory case and 5 choke tubes. A great little upland gun. 14 7/8” x 1 ¼” x 2 ¼”. 6lbs. 3oz. Price: $1500 shipped
