Just wondering if the Fausti Albion model is a Rizzini?? It looks a lot like a Sig and some Verona's. Also is the Albion a good gun. Here is some pictures of one I know that one of the Fausti sisters is married to a Rizzini.

The Veronas are OEM by Fausti, and the E. Rizzini guns are made in the Fausti factory.

Thank's Davide!! Hey in recent hunt pictures on the 28 gauge site was the whisker dog a German Wirehair, VDD or a Griffon. He was a very good looking dog, actually they were all nice looking dogs, I use to have a Lab but now have a VDD and a Brittany. Those were really nice photos by the way. Thank's Again!!

That was a Pic of Tramp AKA the Village idiot! :mrgreen:
great dawg and companion to my hunting partner.
he is a pure bred Griffon, from Quebec.
As fine a pointer as they come, as spinny as a Brittney, and as goofy as a lab! :lol:
Actually, he courses close most of the time, points rock solid - if he lifts his head after 3 seconds, it's a cold point.
I watched him hold point while a made my way across the field last week, and what with getting the camera out, it all took about 4 minutes - that dog hold like a rock! :D
Goofy does not define him though, simply a 4 year old pup! :lol:

Emillio Rizzini &Co.

Davide,

I think the Verona O/Us brought into the U.S. by BCC imports were made by F.A.I.R. We in the U.S. can't get them NIB anymore (importer went toes up), so if you're still seeing new ones in Canada, they may well be OEM by Fausti.

The mentioned Rizzini/Fausti marriage did indeed bring Fausti and E. Rizzini under the same ownership group, as I understand.

As to the OP's original question. The actions/lockup method of the guns you mentioned are all the same. I haven't heard enough about the Fausti Albion's quality control to tell you how they compare with a F.A.I.R. or B.Riz, but the design is certainly a reliable one for a hunter. I hunt with 2 different FAIR 16s and have also owned B.Riz and CG O/Us in 20 ga. All were trouble free.

Best,
Mark

The new Verona Company's are Fausti. The now defunct Verona Company's O/U's were from F.A.I.R. or Zoli.

The Verona o/us are still made by F.A.I.R. for Legacy, Fausti is making the SxSs, and the semi-autos are made by F. Lli Pietta.

Legacy imports from 3 different Italian manufacturers under the VERONA trademark.
The O/U's are in fact from FAIR, Isadoro Rizzini. great guns, strong and dependable.
The S/S's are Fausti's
The semi auto's are the most interesting. They are inertia guns made by Pietta, in Italy. They can be viewed with data on the Pietta site. Look like lower cost Benelli.
