Rizzini S2000 Opinions - Pros & Cons

620 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Gm325
Ok, I’m a long time Browning / Winchester / Remington shooter who has no complaints with these brands (O/Us, semis & pumps). I’ve now started looking at a newer Rizzini S2000 28 ga w 32” bbls, for 5 stand & skeet and hoping to get current & past Rizzini owners experiences and opinions. I’ve been reading much over the net but still have questions…

here are some areas of interest

  • I’ve read the Rizzini’s are known to pierce Cheddite primers. true or false for newer S2000s.
  • how does the S2000 compare to Browning Citoris in reliability and ability to access repair service, can any gunsmith get parts to fix most issues?
  • is the S2000 fit & finish better than on Citori high grades?
  • is the Turkish walnut stock a better wood than Browning high grades’ American walnut?

I've owned two S-2000s. The first one doubled the first time out, then I spent some 15 months mailing it back and forth to Fierce Arms in Utah. It never did work properly (four trips back) and to their credit they finally replaced the action, so I am now on my second S-2000. This one has worked flawlessly. I understand Cole's is now a sales/service center, and if this is accurate I would just order one from them and go directly to them for service. By the way, TGS did a one hour video of a visit to the Rizzini factory and it is worth watching if you are getting on the Rizzini train. Bottom line, great looking and great handling gun. Good luck!
