Verona?

5 posts in this topic

So what can anyone tell me about these shotguns? I just bought a SX 405S 12 gauge for $150. Its brand new was never shot the only thing wrong was the barrel o-ring was dry cracked. I took it out and shot a box of trap loads through it and it seems like a good gun. I just could not pass up an auto loader for that price.. So did I do alright or is there something thats gunna rise its ugly head down the road? Thanks for any input.

Gun is serviced by Gander Mountain. It is made and distributed by PMC. Verona use to have a website but does not anymore. I cannot find anything really bad about the gun. These guns were made in Italy except the semi auto which was made in Turkey.

$150 for a brand new auto. Don't get your hopes up. Good luck though. Stranger things have happened.

For what you paid, you couldn't go wrong. I'm not familiar with that brand, but I don't think I'd pass it up. Was it someone that you know that sold it? If I bought it off a rack for $150 I'd be a little more cautious. If it was someone that I knew that just didn't use it, I wouldn't worry about it. Either way, it would probably sit in my gunsafe as a backup gun should the need ever arise. You really couldn't go wrong at that price for an unused gun.

Yeah I bought it from a truck driver at the place I work as a mechanic. He won it at a DU dinner...Its not a top of the line gun but its lite, pulls up nice and it holds 6 shots unlike the Browning Gold that I have with only 3.Thanks for the input guys, just wondering if anyone out there had one of these things?

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
