From Don W:
Q: Will an mx28 barrel fit the mx410 frame?
A: No, you cannot take a barrel from a larger gauge (in this case, 28 gauge) and use it on a smaller gauge (410 gauge).
Barry R in Arizona asked:
Q: Is an over/under adjustable rib from a standard MX2000 combo as close as it comes to making an Mx15 a combo?
A: The MX8 6mm ramp rib is the exact height as the 15 when the 15 is in the 50/50 position.
Have you ever wanted to send in your gun for repairs and maintenance, but didn’t know the process, or how long it will take? Read this next question from Ray B:
Q: I have an MX3 that is in need of a rebuild and I have another barrel that needs to be fitted. How long does it take and how do I get it to you? Does it have to be sent thru a FFL, or can I send it FedEx, UPS, etc. I am shooting it now, but was thinking about over the fall and winter?
A: Please send it to us via UPS. The winter time is usually best and it will take approximately 4-8 weeks to get it back to you. Should you need a copy of our FFL, we’ll be happy to provide it, if requested.
Eren J. is trying to find a trap stock for an MT-6 but there aren’t too many available…
Q: I use a Perazzi Mt-6 with 29.5in O/U barrels for trap shooting. I turned it into a combo by adding an MX-8 barrel to it. The only stocks I tend to find are skeet or sporting style. Did they ever make a trap stock for this model? If not, what are my options to make this gun or stock more of a trap gun?
A: Yes, those guns did come with a trap stock during the time they were in production. If you can’t find a used trap stock, your best option is to have us fit you for a custom made stock. Custom stock prices begin at $3,300.
(ed note: we have an upcoming series of articles about this process, including photos and videos. Check the blog soon!)
Another stock question. This time about the TM9X and TMX:
Q: Does Perazzi TM9X wood interchange with TMX wood?
Going back to 1968, Dan B is wondering what bore and chokes were standard in the Perazzi Comp 1….
Q: The “old” Comp 1 Perazzi. When imported to the USA; with a 30″ o/u barrel……what choke were they for the bottom barrel and what for the upper barrel…..This was made in 1968……….Was .725 standard bore in that year?
A: Yes, the 725 was the standard at the time. As for the chokes, there are marks on the left side of the barrel – these are stars or circles with a dot in the center (like a target) – this will indicate which chokes are in the gun.
Worried about your Perazzi stock getting a crack in it? J.C. has had a couple with this issue. There is a preventive measure that should be done:
Q: Is there anything that can be done to “prevent” my MX8 stocks from cracking at the rear of the tang/ wrist? Anything to watch for or avoid?
2 Perazzi’s = 2 cracked stocks.
A: Definitely – the wood needs to be relieved to allow for the recoil.
