I installed the first of the new bases, two days ago, and the fit is "perfect!"I wouldn't expect less from you . . . . . just enough space between the back of the base and front of the Kensight to let us keep the area dust free.

Yesterday, I blew the 1" center of the target out.  A good feeling.
Thanks, again!

 Hello Bazil, 

Just wanted to take a moment to let you know how pleased I am with the mount on my x5. You are a talented man.
Best Regards,

Thanks for taking care of my gun. Let me know if you ever need anything or get to FortWorth, TX.
Thu Jul 04, 2013 subject: Another great repair job by Bazil Slaughter
I recently had a chance to shoot my Verona 28 / .410 combo after Bazil repaired it. The gun is better than it was new, because he managed to reduce the trigger creep while doing the other needed repairs.

Worked on my Verona LX 692 20 ga back in July. Got to shoot it recently. Killed a limit of doves each day 3 days straight. First day only took 28 shells, second day-39 shells and the last day 25 shells (limit is 15 doves per day). Gun performed flawlessly and Basil is a great guy. I shipped it to him from Tennessee and the turnaround time was only couple weeks. Need help with a Verona Basil is the guy to go to.

Agreed, Basil hooked me up with firing pins for a nice Cortona Legacy. Real craftsman and a great guy!

In the U.S., Basil Slaughter does a lot of FAIR's work. You might want to give him a call or e-mail. On phone, if he doesn't pick up, he will call you back. Excellent smith and a very nice fellow. There is contact info for him at the top of the "I love my Verona" board here on SGW.
