The Poli gunsmith shop was founded in 1966 by Paolo Poli and today the family tradition is carried on by his two sons, Tiziano and Pierantonio, with the help of a good team of collaborators. The Fratelli Poli Armi is located in a two-story building: on the ground floor there is the show room, where both the hunting rifles and shotguns produced by Fratelli Poli and guns from other manufacturers – selected and reconditioned – are exhibited. On the first floor there is a large workshop, where the expert hands of the Poli brothers and their collaborators give life to collector's models.
The Poli gun shop in fact offers a fully personalized gun manufacturing service that can satisfy any customer's request. Every aspect of the Poli rifles can be customized according to the owner's taste or needs , from surface treatments to hand engravings, from mirror polishing to woods of the highest quality. Each made-to-order gun is perfectly suited to the customer's body and his/her shooting approach.
The Fratelli Poli Armi's range of hunting and shooting guns includes the Ruby side-by-sides with external hammers and in 28, 32 ga and .410 bore, the Sapphire with rounded receiver in 12, 20 and 28 ga, the Onyx with "Anson Deeley" forged receiver, in 12, 16, 20, 28 gauge and ,410 bore. In the same side-by-side shotgun range we find the Ametist , one of the most refined models, with only a limited number being produced each year. It features Holland & Holland locks and is available in 12, 16, 20, 28 ga and ,410 bore.
The Poli Ivory side-by-side is built on a "Anson Deeley” forged receiver, entirely hand-finished and available in 12, 16, 20, 28 ga and .410 bore. The Poli Lapis side-by-side, on the other hand, is particularly light and, thanks to its 65 centimeter barrels, it weighs 2750-2800 kg. Available in 12, 20 and 28 gauges. The Onix side-by-side features a "Anson Deeley” forged receiver, entirely hand-finished and built on scaled frames depending on the gauge. Many different options are available on 12, 16, 20, 28 ga and .410 bore. The Amber side-by-side features Anson-type locks, but is externally embellished with finely hand-engraved false side plates. It is available in 12, 16, 20, 28 ga and .410 bore. Among the most exclusive side-by-side shotguns produced by the Fratelli Poli we cannot fail to mention the Opal , a gun for hide hunting with divergent barrels that can be both fired at the same time. Finally, the Emerald is a sumptuous double gun featuring external hammers and Demiblok barrels, double underbite locking system, Holland Holland-type forward spring locks with and briarwood stock.
As for over-under shotguns, the Kristal and Zircon hunting models differ only in the the side plates featured by the second model – the difference is purely aesthetic. Very well-balanced, they make it easier to aim and find the right shooting position. The Diamond over-under instead represents the ultimate expression of style and technology from Fratelli Poli. Every single piece of the Poli Diamond over-and-under is entirely machined from solid blocks. This technique maximizes quality, accuracy, and mechanical strength of each piece and therefore of the whole gun. The lug fitting is the Boss type, while the rounded receiver enhances the harmony of this over-under, which is also stands out thanks to its Holland & Holland removable action. The same unique production process is used for the Turquoise over-under, a versatile and accurate shotgun dedicated to demanding shooters and hunters.
