Our Assessment: The Ellipse EVO is truly a stunning over/under shotgun. The deep relief scroll hand finished engraving on the receiver and foreend assembly make this sporting gun unique among others in the field. The handwork and design are from the studios of the world renowned Italian engraving house, Bottega Incisioni C. Giovanelli. The coin finish frame is painstakingly hand polished. Balancing the beauty of the deeply sculpted engraving is a deluxe grade of walnut, featuring precision cut 26 lines-per-inch checkering and a natural oil finish, hand rubbed to a sheen that enhances the highly figured wood grain. The Ellipse EVO is available in 12 gauge as a standard offering, but 20, 28 and combination two-barrel sets in 20/28 gauge are also available. This is s 20/28 gauge set and is a great sporting setup that is ready for an outing in the field. The engraving and stocks are world class, a true piece of art. Please see our pictures and good luck.
