The Range Explained 

THE PERAZZI LEGEND 2

Following my superior target vision philosophy, this is the ‘pinnacle’. Browsing through my various models you will see the emphasis I have put on target vision and this latest hybrid design leaves no holds barred. Making a hybrid out of the best of my designs was an obvious new way forward for an unbeatable allrounder and the Legend 2 just about does it all. Any barrel length from 30″ to 34″, clay and game weight versions, matched pairs built to perfection with std or the very best engraving and woodwork to satisfy the most fastidious. Easy to shoot ??? just amazing.

THE PERAZZI SRI

This is now the only gun in my range of guns that comes with a fairly conventional top rib that offers a sight picture that many experienced guns are familiar with. The head or sighting view of the SR1 should maintain an eye position of about 2-3m just above the rib when the gun is mounted snugly into the cheek. Looking dead flat along the top rib is in my opinion, incorrect and although it can be effective on closer range targets, it will let the shooter down on longer targets when it is important to see more of the target and exactly what you are doing. The SR1 has a very effective short ramp at the breech which also aids the target vision to some extent.

THE PERAZZI RSR

This was my first exclusive and unique rib design allowing the shooter to see much more of the target and have a far greater peripheral vision. The RSR is now very popular and once accepted and trusted it offers a far superior target vision than any other shotgun currently available. The head position with the RSR is raised approximately 5-6m above the breech face but although hard for some to accept, with this vision it will not shoot high. As you can see in my testimonials, this design really works and will generally give the shooter between 5 and 10% advantage over the SR1. 5 More targets hit out of 100 ? that is well justified.

THE PERAZZI DSR

The RSR above is designed as an all round gun perfectly at home on game or clays but for the serious clay shooter the DSR has a slightly different approach. This design uses the RSR principle but it is designed to be heavier, steadier and a little more controllable which can benefit the clay shooter. It is still very pointable and swings easy but the raised part of the rib allows a slightly more positive connection with the target. The head positon is a little higher than the RSR resting approximately 6-8m above the breech.

THE PERUGINI & VISINI RSR/D

A variation on the theme here using a little from the HVR (PATENT GRANTED) and the RSR designs. The main section of the rib is in RSR configuration but the breech end has a small dip just in front of the breech. This is my personal favourite for game shooting and I have found it to be incredibly effective on all targets, the longest being made a lot easier. It is incredibly pointable and quick but steady too and because of its superb focus it is a joy to use on the highest of targets.

THE PERUGINI & VISINI DG2 RSR

You will find other references to the DG2 on this website, my first design and development in superior shooting shotguns from the 80’s some 35 years ago. The original DG2 has enjoyed amazing success over the years and there are many users who are committed to this model for life. However, I wanted to bring it into this century. It now has the same short ramp section at the breech as did the original DG2 which then culminates in an RSR section right up to the muzzle. This design is again, very pointable offering a superb sight picture but it is also slightly more conventional for the traditional shooter. Hopefully, alongside the RSR/D, this model will become a reference just as the original did many years ago.

THE PERUGINI & VISINI HVR

Patent applied for. This takes high vision to the extreme. As you will see from the pictures, the top rib comprises a short 15CM section at the muzzle only. The sight picture offered here is quite special and controversial as there is nothing to attract the eye away from the target at all the only connection to the target being this small rib at the muzzle. The eye position has to be in line with this raised rib but once fitted correctly, the results are pretty special. Target correlation becomes very easy and as per the PERAZZI designs, target vision is superb. This design works very well for the game or clay shooter and can assist (not cure) the shooter who has an opposite eye tendency.

THE SALVINELLI ADVANCED RSR

My entry level to specialised and fully fitted shotguns. Check out the review in Pull magazine March 2020.
