Rizzini: passionate about guns


T e Rizzini brand is the story of a self-made man who is determined and passionate about his guns and his family. GTW tells the story of Battista Rizzini, who has carved out a niche of his own in the Gardone Val Trompia, the famous Italian valley of gunmakers.

orn in 1944, Rizzini founder Battista Rizzini started working at the


age of 14 in a factory producing mechanical parts and fi rearms. Two years later Battista started attending a technical school in the evening while working during the day. Upon graduation in 1962, he changed jobs and was employed at the Bernardelli factory as head of the mechanical department. During his years at

Bernardelli, Battista acquired a wealth of experience and the wish to develop projects based on his own personal ideas. In 1966, he made the leap and


started his own project producing mechanical components for fi rearms in the basement of the family house. For the initial four to fi ve years Battista produced parts for companies such as Beretta, Bernardelli, Uberti, Browning and FN. In 1971, the


fi rst Rizzini gun was produced. It was an over-and-under featuring patented mechanisms like the trigger group, safety, adjustable comb on the stock, the rifl ed barrel regulation system and the lug. T ese fi rst guns were made with traditional machines and fi nished by hand.


RIZZINI TODAY


Still an independent family run company, Rizzini has grown to


be a manufacturer distributing a yearly production of 5,000 guns worldwide. Battista is still fi rmly at the helm. His three children are actively engaged in the administrative, commercial and mechanical departments. Employing 40 staff , Rizzini


is proud to execute every production step in house. While all new projects start on Battista’s desk, the Rizzini engineers develop the projects.
