Rizzini S2000 Opinions - Pros & Cons

616 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?

Thanks for your input. I’ve also watched a Rizzini factory tour video and read much as I could find on the S2000 and other models and getting ready to move to the next step of making an offer on one here in Canada.

As indicated in the opening post, it is a newer (Btb 2018ish) S2000 28 ga 32” bbls w adjustable comb. The seller is asking $5,000 CAD.

Is this a fair price, above or below market? It’s hard to get an accurate picture because there are not many used S2000s around that are for sale.

I have been comparing this gun to the Browning 725 sporting sub gauges which I’ve seen listed around $4,000. In your opinion, would this be an unreasonably low offer for a similar used S2000?
