Rizzini has become more present on the international competition scene with models such as the S2000. One of the most elegant guns to be seen on the circuit, the stunning deep scroll hand-chased engraved action and side plates by Bottega C. Giovanelli are craftsmanship at its best.
Accompanied with fine Turkish walnut upgraded wood stock, the 26 lines-per-inch checkering flows into your hand. The S2000 not only is a clay buster but a head turner for sure.
It is offered with a set of five extended chokes and the 12 gauge models are also offered with fixed ramped rib barrel and adjustable comb.
The Zoli has achieved amazing results that clearly show the high ballistic and dynamic qualities featured on Zoli’s guns. Zoli developed a custom shop that has managed to satisfy even the most demanding requests.
Models such as the Z-Extra are visible on the circuit thanks to its possibilities of customization, able to cater to any specification. Its barrels are manufactured in-house and feature a top tapered rib, flat and checkered.
An extra set of interchangeable barrels are available for this model. The stock is interchangeable, and as standard is made from Turkish Walnut, finely checkered and displaying a luxuriously vivid grain.

Kemen guns were the first love of shooting legends George Digweed and Richard Faulds. The KM4 model was developed with the Perazzi MX8 in mind and it is dedicated to competition, with numerous successes.
Although launched as a Trap shotgun, it soon demonstrated strong capacities in all the other disciplines. Customers can request particular specifications.
All woodwork is according to the customer’s preferences. Like the Perazzi, it is balanced and designed to withstand thousands of shots. There are no two identical KM4s. Each one has its own essence for dimensions, balance and management.
