Would be super to have eyes on target and get a first hand report. Their website doesn't have good pics for sure.

I shoot with a guy who shoots a Fausti 28/32 gauge set. It is the DEA I believe. It is really a pretty gun. It has gold spattered in several spots on the receiver.

It's an interesting approach, with all the options available. That being said, my memories of Rota aren't very positive. When New England Arms went out of business, Cabela's acquired the FAIR OU's, which were decent guns. They also acquired at least some of the Rotas, which were NEA's least expensive Italian sxs. I wasn't at all impressed by what I saw . . . even at the lower prices Cabela's put on the guns they picked up from NEA.

About 15 years I owned a Rota made gun for about a year and it gave the old "Pride of Spain" guns a run for their money for problems, including soft metal issues that showed up after I sold the gun. As the old saying goes "once burned twice shy".

The two or three Luciano Rota guns I’ve seen were junk. I think, if my memory is holding up, that Tri-Star and Cape Outfitters imported those guns too.
Those NEA FAIR O/U’s when they were being liquidated were probably the best deals ever on a quality gun. I picked up a 16 bore Model 500 with upgraded wood for 1k. Some were going for less than that.

Wes, Dave and I priced those guns (FAIR)to sell and we moved them quickly. Re: the Rota guns. I was unimpressed as well, but that said, we sold them pretty quickly as well, and I don’t recall ever getting one back with issues.

I just picked up a Rota over/under because it was very cheap and my cousin wants a cabin gun. A low end gun but it has decent wood and it sure shoulders nicely. It won't see hardly any use so hopefully won't be any real issues.
