A firend of mine is considering getting and Angelo Zoli shotgun. I was wondering if anyone has one or know anything about them? It looks nice but I wonder if they are of good quality.

Zoli's are excellent Italian O/U's. For several years they made O/U's that were sold under the Weatherby label.

Hey Cbn:
Bishop is right, those Zoli's are some fine Italian shotguns, I have a friend that swears by them, his name is Martinelli. Tell your friend to go ahead and buy it, he just can't go wrong with Zoli's.

I knew someone by the name of Martinelli. He was the 1968 Int'l Trap Champ. Is that the same guy? Does he shoot with a Zoli?

Hey Cbn:
The one and only...that's him...

I saw Martinelli at Triple B's the other day. He was shooting with Bob Stack and Derrick Partridge. He still has his form.

Yup!, he strolls to Triple "B"'s every once in a while, he always has great memories of that place from back in the days when it was called "The International"...

Qbn Hunter,

I have a buddy that owns one. he loves the gun but,
recently he broke a seer and could'nt find one anywhere. he finally had to fabricate his own.

beware parts are hard to find.

REd Dog,

That is what I am afraid of, spare parts. For the Angelo it will be difficult to find cause they are out of business.

My friend has had his for 30 years, an original Angelo Zoli and has never had any problems with it, that gun is still killing birds. And think about it, if for some reason something breaks and there is no parts for it, I'm sure that a skilled gunsmith can machine the part for it. You just can't go wrong with a Zoli...

Do you know if American Arms imported Zoil's before?

As far as I know Zoli's were imported by Sear's, and Weatherby. Not sure about any other importers. There are many parts houses that may have some Zoli parts. I agree with 1socalhunter, if you have can't find a part, a gunsmith should be able to make one. I wouldn't pass up a good deal on a great Italian O/U like Zoli because of parts worries.
