Hey all,

I've been bitten by the 16 gauge bug and I've always wanted a Rizzini. Figured I'd kill two birds with one stone.

I dig the basic setup of the BR110, but prefer a non blued (Cerakote?) receiver. The Aurum is available with a case colored or coin finished receiver, but I can do without all the fancy engraving (although I have to say the Aurum has one of my fave engraving scenes / jobs).

So here's my question, is the extra $1k or so worth it on the Aurum?

Cheers

If it’s what you want, it’s worth it. You sound like you’d be settling for less than you want by going cheap. The BR110 is a great gun, I had one but if the Aurum checks the boxes, you’d regret not getting one.

EricB,

Thanks for the response. I was literally having the same conversation with myself. I know from past experiences if I go cheap, I wind up kicking myself in the a$$ and getting the more expensive one anyway lol.

Just out of curiosity, what gauge did you get?

Cheers

I went with the coin finished Arum 16, and I could not be happier. It’s a light gun, so it’s great for the field. I also shoot clays with mine. The engraving is the very best machine engraving that I have ever seen. No complaints here!

Mine was a 12. Very nice gun but the stock was a bit long and I didn’t want to modify it, so I sold it. I also decided I don’t care for the schnabel fore end.

My stock was a bit long as well so Rizzini sent me a thinner pad for free

The pad on mine wasn’t very thick. Removing it completely didn’t bring it down to 14-1/2” & I need about 14-1/4”

Gentlemen,

I want to thank you both. I've got an email into Rizzini right now on a 16ga Aurum :D

Cheers

You will be very pleased with it, and it is also a very handsome shotgun!

I saw you made choice, congrats. I have a round body in 16 ga and its very nice. Thinking of moving to Regal Deluxe.

Wanted to note for others that the BR 110 in 16 ga is, I believe, on a 12 ga frame. Unlike their other 16 ga models.
