    Does anybody have or know of the Verona Over/under Shotguns? How Reliable? Where are they Made and by whom? Who Guarantees them? Any Information is appreciated. Thanks--

    Depends.

    The lx980 series are made by Antonio Zoli and Cole's in Maine does their warranty work.

    Can't recall, but I think all the other O/U's were made by F.A.I.R. (Isadoro Rizzini.)

    I have 3 Veronas...2 field models and 1 trap model. The first one I bought was a 12 gauge field model. I had it work done on it to use it as a sporting clays gun. I have shot trap, skeet and sporting with it. I have put an average of 5000 rounds per year through it for several years (bought it in 2003). Later in the trap season last year I purchased the trap model and have put several hundred rounds through it.
    I have never had any problems with these guns. They have functioned quite well. The one I used for sporting has also been used for hunting in weather where I had to scrape ice from the barrels. If one is available...buy it. I know many folks who shoot them and to my knowledge none of them have had any problems with the F.A.I.R. guns (the cheaper semi-autos from Sarsilmaz in Turkey are a different story).

    As was pointed out, Verona was a name used to hide a variety of makers, Turkish and two Italian. The FAIR version of Verona are great guns and are now imported under two labels -- Savage Milano and Kasipel Cortona. As expected the Savage version is less fancy while the Kasipel version has more engraving, better wood etc.

    BTW, the lx980 is similar to the Zoli Kronos which is sold in Europe, and was the predecessor to the new Zoli Z-Gun which sells for around $5000.

    Nice guns.

    I have the LX505SC and it has been shot a bunch for sporting and Dove hunting. I'm talking 12 to 15k rounds without a failure. I have been shooting a 525 for last few months and loaned it to a friend having some work done on a Beretta O/U and he's tried to buy it several times, I'll have a hard time getting it back. It one of the F.A.I.R guns and they are well made and reliable, at least in the 5 series, as I understand there are different makers for other series. Anytime the wife, kids, friends need a gun to shoot I let them shoot it, and everyone that picks it up seems to be able to hit with it.
    Hell I am about to talk myself into another one. There is one for sale on another forum. JD
