actually, one of my favorite shotguns. Too bad Savage had to discontinue importing this fine O/U from Italy. It was brought out in 2006 to compete squarely with the Beretta/Browning market. Savage never really marketed the gun, therefore, it was subsequently dropped. Anyway, the gun is built by FAIR Rizzini of Italy. The quality of construction and finish is as good as most any B-gun...

here's the Savage catalog from back in 06, introducing the Milano. Too bad Savage was too stupid to know how to sell a higher quality Italian built shotgun...

Been keeping my eyes out for one that someone is selling cheap because "it's just a Savage."

Nice Rizzini - seems Savage and S&W (Elite) suffered from the same marketing mayhem

Here's a thread from another forum regarding the 4 Rizzini companies and how they are related and ranked quality-wise
