Or this one?

I don't know about a VR702 but, an LX702 is the same as an LX680 with a palm swell and with or without porting.. May have fake side plates.
Don't know if the newer ones are the same as the older ones from PMC.
All LX's are made the same, I believe. 5xx, 6xx and 7xx's.
The LX980's have side plates and are similar to a Zoli. As far as I know, they take Zoli chokes.
I have 2- 502's and a 680 and love them all. Fit and finish on the 680 is better.
Had I known the prices would jump so much, I would have more of them.

692's and 702's from the FAIR made guns have side plates. 692 in silver, 702 in a case hardened "look" (not really case hardened though).

It's the second one in the 12 gauge model. Glad to see it's going for $1000+. I picked it up for a couple hundred under that. Thanks for the post.

I wouldn't let the $1000 fool you as auctions like that can go for years without selling. If I got it right, you spent about $800 and that sounds about right for one in good condition. That is also what the Savage Milanos are going for and that is basically the same gun. You did good.

The LX50x series, LX69x series and the LX702 series from Verona were all made by F.A.I.R., but the LX980 series were made by Zoli. So yes, the LX980's take Zoli chokes. They also came with 2 trigger groups. I made the mistake, not really a mistake but a matter of price at the time, and purchased a LX702 wishing for a LX980.

I am so glad to find a forum re: Verona shotguns. I bought a two barrel set 20/28 LX501 several years ago. I hunt and shoot quail with this gun and it is a pleasure to shoot. I did have a problem once when the sear bar failed to cock the hammers, but it was when BC sports was still in business. I returned the gun to Basil and he fixed it no charge and no more problems. So to answer the questions:
Yes, I would buy again.
Yes, I would recommend them.
And yes, I am proud to shoot it next to the higher priced Italian guns at the club.
My first post so I am excited to talk shotgunning with like minded shooters.
