ZOLI XL EVO
The Zoli XL-EVO perfectly completes the Z-Gun range. It represents the fundamental aspects that distinguish the whole range, and goes on to reach even further. The XL-EVO is a gun dedicated to the expert shooter requiring a professional, as well as customizable gun and is a truly unique model on the market.
Unlike the other models in the Z-Gun range, the XL-EVO is fitted with an increased action with a variable weight structure which can be adjusted by the shooter themselves; the two side plates can be exchanged with others of a different weight. This innovation completely reflects the concept ‘Between Hands Balance’ introduced by Zoli.
When shooting at professional level, having a gun that can be perfectly tuned is essential. The Zoli XL-EVO has been created specifically to fulfil such requirements thanks thanks to the variable weight of the ‘VGC’ action, to the dynamic ‘BHB’ device and adjustable comb. The XL-EVO is also fitted with a monolithic action, detachable trigger group with titanium components, self-lubricating springs, stainless steel bush firing pins, Boss-type locking system and silver soldered barrels.

The Zoli Pernice reflects the classic tradition of game guns, with exquisite scroll engraving – totally finished by hand and signed by the famous Bottega incisioni. Uniquely, the Pernice is a true round body model, with a fully rounded frame, machined from a monolithic forged steel alloy with a Zoli removable trigger group. All trigger parts are titanium nitrate treated for maximum corrosion resistance, while main springs are coated with a self-lubricating material to preserve their strength over time.
As standard with Zoli guns, the Pernice features silver soldered barrels and is equipped with a top solid Churchill rib. The stock is crafted from a fine Turkish Walnut with fine hand checkering and is hand finished in a luxe oil.
The Pernice is available in 12, 20, 28 and .410 ga.
The engraving creation for the Pernice, a true round body Boss action over and under shotgun, was born from a collaboration between Zoli and Bottega Incisioni, the world renowned engraving studio with a 60-year history of engraving the finest guns in existence. Bottega Incisioni has earned international acclaim for their exquisitely unique designs and ability. Each Pernice action is signed "Bottega Incisioni" as a mark of authenticity.
The new Zoli Pernice presented unique challenges for the engraving design as it is the first Boss style action to be truly rounded on all 4 sides in a flowing synchronous form. There are no flat sides. The action seems to grow organically from the long, slender barrels rearward into the graceful lines Prince of Wales stock. It looks and handles like a strong and graceful arm extended to the horizon.
The engraving pattern required a unique approach so as to enhance the natural flow of the action body. Bottega Incisioni created an exceptional design which enhances the slender rounded features and allows the layout to be done mechanically, thus giving the hand engravers plenty of time to apply liberal use by hand of the hammer and chisel. The design uses low relief, high contrast scroll created from intertwined Acanthus Spinosus leaves – a leaf with deepveins. Acanthus scroll is often found in Grecian architecture (and the English countryside). Its floral motives draw the eye to the flowing lines of the Pernice.
The carved surface of the low relief engraving on the Pernice is deeply hand shaded to enhance contrast and color.The leaves are shaded to create volume and flow. The artist’s vision allowed the engraving of the leaves to flow like vines and be the living connection intertwining the barrels through the rounded action and growing into the stock.

The fascinating history of Zoli starts in 1945 and runs through significative periods, sometimes even critical ones. In spite of the many adversities, production always managed to continue, making the brand become a synonym for tradition and innovation. Constant research and passion have ensured ceaseless product evolution, with an abundance of state-of-the-art solutions, while maintaining traditions at the same time. In fact, at Zoli’s we firmly believe that innovation and tradition can, and indeed should coexist, as shown by our production. Although revolutionary from a mechanical and performance point of view, these guns still offer a classical look, fitting the traditional stylistic canons that belong to a period when the fundamental principles of gun making art and a strong aesthetic sensibility, albeit affordable only to a few people, gave the opportunity to skilful artisans to manufacture guns that were almost works of art.
Since 1990, Zoli Custom Shop has built magnificent guns too, manufactured for the more sophisticated hunters and shooters. The custom line aims to produce unique pieces that can satisfy the most demanding palates, a result that is achieved combining together different ingredients, converging into today’s production thanks to Zoli’s long experience.
