Amazing place ..........as you walk through the place with $80,000 guns in their cases on the floor within reach . Scary !!

David Trevallion used to watch the shop at New England Arms in Kittery.  He used to give me the run of the place.  Gingerly picking a 10 K  (30 years ago) Italian beauty or a British best (40K 28 gauge woodward O/U for example) off the rack, was a little scary but a close look at pure artistry.

Used to love visiting that place , sadly all I ever bought there was a Browning BSS 20 gauge off the "poor rack" .

I like it. Looks like a very nice gun at an attractive price. Not sure how Tony does it for that price... assuming they are made in the USA.

I just had David work on a  gun. I couldn't afford anything in there. As for the repair, He asked, How much can you afford?  :)

Lee -- I used to do a lot of business in the Boston area, and would always arrange it so that I could drive up to Kittery Point and visit Jim's awesome gun room. He had an eye for quality.

One other thing: i didn’t mean to be overly critical of the gun by commenting on the forend.  

 

A round-action, case hardened gun with a 2 handle on the price tag?  Incredible.  I hope CSMC sells a bunch.

Any idea when we can see some of these in person?  Will they have some at Pheasant Fest?

If it's anything like past offerings, this is a leap of faith and after that, the price will go up.  I have gone through this struggle each time this happens but thus far, have always managed to talk myself down.  I don't need it. It's a Rizzini clone and I have a Rizzini that is very close to being the same gun.  But this is an American company that builds quality doubles and to order one would be a first for me and I could actually afford it.  I need to call and see what this wood upgrade amounts to and how long is the wait.  If I had the dough, I'd order a fancy Inverness, which I believe this is a field grade version of.  It is the most appealing offer to me since they offered the 20 gauge, CE Grade Fox for 5k.  You snooze, You lose!

Okay. now I see all the extra photos that are there... Computers sometimes... ahh well.

 

Now I see why everyone is saying Rizzini. Yes, but the more I see the more I like. Very trim action in width, which makes up a little for depth for the underlug..Almost makes me wish  I needed another shotgun....

I took the leap last Wednesday.  I woke up that morning planning to buy a Beretta 690, but changed my mind when I saw this being offered.  Hopefully I wont be disappointed and the delivery time doesnt become a long drawn out process.

It may be a little deeper than a Beretta but it is shallower than a Win 101 or any Browning.  My hand goes around my 20 gauge.  Kieffer did they give you any idea on the wait?

Not really.  They told me "We are shipping guns as they are ordered right now."  I didn't try to pin them down on it exactly.  However, earlier in this topic a user (Starsky) sent them an email about delivery and they told him about two weeks.

Several years ago I bought a Parker CH 16 gauge at an auction with the buttstock broken in 2 pieces.  Did some searching and David T was the one recommended to fix the gun where no one would notice the repair.  Most I have ever ever paid for a gun repair, but it was a rather amazing repair.  Had the Parker crazies try to find the repair and with a jewelers loop when I told them where it was they were able to find it.  I have since sold it to pay for my Fox mainline addiction, but yes, he was/is a rather amazing stock repair specialist.

I love the look.  I love the price. I'd kill for made in U.S.A. Love the 30" barrels option. But the approx 6.5lbs is the negative for me. I'd want 6.5lbs at the most, other wise I'd just carry my 12G Guerini.
