Of course those Italian shotguns will talk but you'll have to "capice Italiano"!

The $3,000 tuneup I referenced above was for a low end 328-V8 Ferrari. Any of the V12s would of course cost more.

If I had the resources to buy anything I wanted in a auto at this time it would be one of the new Ford GT40s. The originals were the bane of Ferrari back in the 60s particularly at LeManns.

My "best" English example is a high end Scott SLE that was made in 1898 making it 109 years old. I'd be hard pressed to come up with a feature on this gun that I would change today. How's that for staying power?

Just going back to the original post by ML... he asked what was considered the best side by side that is made in the world today.....today, not 100 years ago!..... and I will have to say again... Flli Rizzini R1
but you don't have to take it from me, even the people at CSMC agree here, and I think most of you will agree that they know a thing or two about shotguns, there are two on their website and advertised as "the best sxs on the market today" and if there is anyone who does not agree with that statement I'm sure Tony and his people could elaborate in detail as to why they advertised them as such

Best

Nice try, but please. That's called salesmanship. They're just saying that to justify the crazy prices they ask for them.

Those Rizzinis are over rated.

If I had to buy new, I'd rather have a Brown, a Peter Nelson, a Hartmann & Weiss, or something like that.

I seem to recall reading similar remarks in Shooting Gazette or the Field regarding this brand. I don't recall they said it was clearly the best, but right there among the very best. Robb Report brand, that's for sure.

And modern English "Best" are not overrated?

I guess then you would probably not own the best...

CJ-

How many Rizzini R1s have you actually had in your hands?

Just curious.

I'm sure that there strains of Anti-Anglo in play here.
...but the things these lads pop in with!
The people at CSMC can't even tell you when your long overdue RBL is going to be shipped.

Jim,
I saw the Ford GT's at a carshow in L.A. and they impressed me. If I had a lot more disposible income, I'd have to have one too. But this is like dreaming about the girlies on Baywatch, ain't it?
