B. Rizzini DOUBLE TRIGGER 28 gauge OU Double Barrel Shotgun
B. Rizzini DOUBLE TRIGGER 28 gauge OU Double Barrel Shotgun

I’ve always liked B. Rizzinis. With their low-profile, Boss/Woodward inspired design and proven trigger-plate style actions, they’re innovative shotguns, right up there with Beretta BLs and 686s-series. If you’re looking for a are nice, all around O/Us, with a bit more style, class, and polish, the B. Rizzinis are hard to beat.

But even though I just said all that, I do have a problem with these shotguns: almost all of them have single triggers. That’s why I like this little B. Rizzini 28 gauge so much. Not only is it great looking and barely used, but it has double triggers.

Two barrels. Two triggers. There’s something just right about that.
