The Rizzini Aurum Small Action is a break-action over-under shotgun chambered in 28 gauge and .410. The Aurum Small Action features a Prince of Wales pistol grip stock made of middle quality select walnut. The Prince of Wales grip, a partial pistol grip, is thought to derive its name from Edward the VII, who favored this styling.
Common features include flat forged frames and barrels made of nickel chrome steel, which has better durability over a wide range of temperatures. The bore is chrome lined and blued. It has adjustable screw in chokes. The barrel has brazed ribs running along the top and the rib is furnace heated to increase bore strength and durability. It also has automatic shell ejectors and a single selective trigger that can be used for the firing of either barrel.
Rizzini recommends the Aurum Small Action for general small game and field shooting.
