    Browning Cynergy Classic trap combo. Check with Erik from Cove Creek Outfitters in PA they have unbeatable prices. I love my new gun and how it shoots. I have only got to shoot 7 rounds because of winter but I avg 23 with it being a new gun to me I am happy and looking forward to shooting it more this spring.

    There is an absolutely perfect Perazzi MX8 for sale here under "For Sale" section. It's at or near the top of the best trap guns ever made.....period. You can shoot it for every event. The seller is MIA and he has the reputation of peddling only good quality stuff. His price is $3,295. A gun like this usually goes for closer to $3,500.

    Take a look and contact MIA (Jack). It would be a shame not to look at it, even against a new gun.

    For that price point, it is pretty hard to beat the Beretta you are looking at. I am not sure you can get a Guerini, Perazzi, or K gun in that price that is in good shape, and Beretta's are dependable.

    I have a Perazzi MT6 32 inch adj. comb that I would let go for 2700 that will give you 800 to shoot with. Tom

    I would look at the MX 8 too. It is a better deal and will always be worth what you paid for it.

    If I were to not buy one of the MX8's for sale here now and had $3500 to spend, I would purchase a Citori XT and spend the rest on shells and entry fees.

    Pheasantmaster is wise--I'd listen to him.



    For $2700.oo I bought my wife a very nice XT 32/34 combo (very lightly used) with Warrick case, Allem release & stock pull triggers, and extra chokes from Bob Schultz.
