I need some cast off on this Rizzini br550 but the grain in the wrist scares me. The photos show the 16 yd. pattern plate with a 3 to 4 inch to the left pattern and 3 views of the wrist. The question is should I consider bending for cast off, relieving the cheek area of the stock or a bit of both? We're probably talking about 3/16 to 1/4 of cast or relieve. Any thoughts?

Thanks, with the stock bolt I suspect it would need also a closer look there. Sorry the picts didn't upload. I'm still trying to figure that out.

I had a B Rizzini 20b that was too straight for me,looked at taking some wood off but after a little bit of measuring and looking I realised that there just wasn`t much wood between the stock face and the bolt channel.Decided moing it on was safest bet!!!

I've shaved and cut back stocks and refinished but I've never tried to bend one. Without practice I'd not like to jump into this stock. It never occured to me that the bolt hole could be to close to the surface of the stock. The 101's and other stock bolted guns I've worked on had plenty of meat in where and what needed to be removed. I'll pull the stock and see what it looks like. In all I'm going to have to have someone work on it for me. At the moment I'm not in a situation to do it myself. Thanks, for your insights.

Would you do anything if center of poi was 2” to right from current photo?

That’s a bend of 1/8th” at face.
Considerably less at the grip.


Cupping the comb ruins the stock for resale.

Bending it, it might break someday. Would have to buy a new machine fitted stock from Rizzini.

Sell it and try again.

Those seem to be your choices.

I’d probably order one made to measure and sell this one, or see if I could have it bent, and take my chances.

Someday, for some of these guns, is decades away.

Post back which you choose.

IDK why so many nice Italian O/Us are stocked so high. IME, Berettas aren't usually as high as Zoli, Guerini, Rizzini, FAIR, etc. If I ever bought a new one of them I'd have it stocked to my dimensions. They all shoot way too high for me, out of the box.
