    Just bought a Zoli Model 85 Ritmo Trap. Looks to be in very good shape.
    Blueing on barrels and receiver are dark. Locks up tight, minor marks on the butt stock (normal use marks) top leaver is right of six o'clock.
    Fixed chokes, ported barrels. How are the 85 ritmo models?

    My real question should have read. Has anyone had problems with this model?

    I shot one for three years and the triggers were a problem the whole time. Very inconsistent pull. One time it would be 4#, then the next it would be 2.5#. They worked on it several times and never got it right.

    Jason,

    I have a newer model Ritmo, a Z-90.

    I think it was the next evolution of the Ritmo after yours.

    Although I love mine (I actually have 2) I would caution you that this gun is no longer supported by Zoli, and getting parts for it if something breaks will be difficult, if not impossible.

    This should weigh into your decision.
