    Some guy is not ashamed to tell us he put a $4000 recoil reducer on a $2000 gun. But you won't tell us how much you paid for a rebuild, amazing......Are you ashamed? Don't want your wife to know? I don't mine telling you how much I paid to have my Ljutic rebuilt.

    Joey,

    I don't particularly like Perazzi's, but I sure do like to see a job well completed by an excellent gunsmith. You sure have one beautiful shotgun to do whatever it is you are going to do with it. If someone has to ask the cost, they probably cannot afford a job like this, or they are nosy as all get out. Again, one beautiful shotgun..............Rick Johnson

    Hi Joey!! Dan did a great job on your gun regardless of cost! To me, the original shape the gun was in is the important part. That and the how it looks now! Having bought one of your guns, I know how you take care of them too. Tell them it was a Christmas present from a friend and let it go at that? Hap

    and to boot, Dan will put all matching serial numbers on all the parts to make it look like your gun came straight from the factory. That's why I don't understand why folks get hung up on asking, when considering a used Perazzi to buy, whether all the serial numbers match.

    I have no doubt about any work bears Giacomo's name, although he's gone fishing most of the time. :)
    This is a typical good rebuild job from them, good as his own work 10 years ago.

    The cost of the rebuild usually can be justified by the good resell value of the object. Very few Perazzis are collectable, most of them are shooters or good looking shooters. I wouldn't hesitate to shoot this TM, just handle it with a little more care, then you'll have a beautiful Perazzi for many years.
