    Hello All!
    Picked up my Perazzi MX8 over the weekend and have been playing with it. Just what I always wanted. Having a problem with the forearm being loose and causing wear on the bluing of the barrells. The forearm will actually move slightly when on the gun.
    Any suggestions on what the problem might be and what I can do about it?
    Not overly familiar with this gun.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Alex.

    Congratulation on your new gun.

    You may use "Stick on" felt pad at the front / inside the forearm wood to fill the gaps. The thin pad that we use under vases to prevent scratching wooden table top works well. I have couple forearm woods with the felt pads in them for 20 years.

    Do what Steve says first. and when (if) you want to do a permanent fix I'll find the Tech Tip on how to fix it. But my deal takes about 2 days of fiddling and some skill with wood, fillers, stains, and the like

    Thanks for the help.
