I'm looking @ a lx 501 in .410 and would like to try the combo w/ 28 ga. while I already have a 28, it is a Beretta Silver Pigeon II - S. w/ 30 inch Bbl. It is a great shooter, but I find myself worrying about scratching it up too much when hunting. My questions are along these lines: Does the .410 reset the trigger for the second shot OK? secondly, a lot of 410's Ive seen have a really high rib to compensate for the receiver being so large. Is the 28/.410 on a 12, 20, or 28 gauge frame? Any information, positive or negative would be appreciated. I've owned 2 Verona's in the past and had great luck with both.

Gunnut,

I have never shot the 410 versions, so I cant honestly answer about the trigger question. Although, they have the same trigger mechs as the others, and all of them work fine. The 501 combo is on the 28 frame if I remember correctly. The rib is only a little high. Here is a littel info, and a pic of the combo, so you can see the rib.......

Quote:
Gold-plated, single selective trigger for fast follow-up shots; ejector; coil spring-operated firing pins; lightly engraved, blued steel receiver; walnut stock with machine cut checkering; 20mm black rubber recoil pad. Rib width: 12 ga. - 7mm; 20, 28 and 410 ga. - 6mm. Barrel selection is integral with non-automatic safety switch. Solid rib between the barrels prevents snagging by underbrush in the field.

The LX-501 Series are manufactured for Verona by F.A.I.R. (Fabrique Arms Isidoro Rizzini)- Italy

Thanks, hoselayer. It (rib height)doesn't seem as bad as a lot of 410's. I'll try to see one in person. Any thoughts on what actual price might be.. possibly $200-300 less than MSRP?

Gunnut,

Depending on how and where you get it, I would guess you would be in the $1200 range. I havent priced one in a while, so I may be slightly off. It is hard to keep track, because the Verona pricing is based of the Euro, so it doesnt trend like the other guns.

Gunnut,
It is a mechanical trigger and not an inertia one. It will fire without recoil and does not need to be reset.

I have a LX model 20/28 and it is built on the 20 gauge frame, so I would expect the 28/410 to be on the 28 gauge frame. If you look at their website, it lists the weight of the combo 28/410 as being the weight of the .410 which is heavier than the 28 by 2 ounces. I suspect that the 410 is built on the same frame as the 28.

I couldn't find the combo. I did find a local dealer who was discontinuing Verona (the second in my area), who shot me a good price on a 410 gauge. I bought it and have had fun trying to hit clays with it. Are Verona dealers quitting in other areas?
