A few weeks ago we posted a picture of this gun before it had our English oil finish. This is made to the clients measurements and features unique engraving. This replaces the clients Perazzi 34″ game gun. What do you think?
A long standing client of ours previously shot well with a Perazzi HPX 34″, however after some problems with the stock head cracking which is a well known problem with Perazzi. The client decided to look at Zoli and after a factory tour was so impressed he doubled his budget to have this gun made to his measurements. Opting for an English oil finish which is now underway and we will post some pictures after we’ve completed it. The Schilling case colour hardened finish is superb, sure you’ll agree.
When it comes to high bird game shooting, the Perazzi MX8 & laterly MXS has been the go too gun for many. The Zoli action is very similar/comparable in design and manufacture to the Perazzi MXS, more cost effective and slightly lighter than the MXS (c8lb vs 8.2lb). Below left is the Perazzi MXS and on the right, the Zoli Kronos. The Zoli and Perazzi action design have DNA that goes back to the original Boss & Co design, read our own W Horton & Sons blog ‘Perfect Gun’ and in particular the post about the origins of the over and under.
With the Zoli Kronos starting at £3,510 in sporting format with various upgrade options and the ability to have them made to measure at little extra cost. The Z-Sport guns and above are available with 34″ barrels and if you prefer a little more engraving then the Expedition EL and others offer a full range of options that will suit any game shot. Mate that with our own inhouse ability to finish and detail the gun to add extra personal touches, we believe the Zoli guns offer a very credible alternative to the Perazzi.
