The SxS double is the model “Iside” (pronounced EE-Sah-Day according to the importer) made by F.A.I.R. of Marcheno (Brescia), Italy and imported by the Italian Firearms Group of North America located in Amarillo, Texas. The F.A.I.R. acronym stands for Fabbrica Armi Isidoro Rizzini. The Rizzini firm is known not only for its game guns but for its competition models and double rifles as well.

Looking at the Iside, it is evident Rizzini is a company blending excellent design with the most modern, numerically controlled manufacturing processes. The end product is a balanced shotgun with great lines, close tolerances and an affordable price.

Maintaining the desirable slim and trim lines of a quality 28-gauge, Rizzini has properly proportioned the frame to the small gauge. The shallow frame of the Iside measures only 1.92 inches from the bottom of the frame to the top of the standing breech. The shallow frame combined with the straight grip and splinter fore-end of the Iside minimize the distance from the bore axis to the palm of the leading hand. This all-important hands-to-barrel relationship is exactly the mark of all fine game guns. It’s called “pointability.” The Iside points.
