    He lives and runs his business in Arizona, in the Phoenix area. He is at all the big shoots here, he will be at the Spring Grand in Tucson. I used to have his phone number but can't find it now. I'm sure you can find it on the internet. Maybe try ADS place ??

    Look at the grip cap and youi may see the tell tale mark of a custom woodworker here in america. The stock has several traits of Dockwiller wood. I may have spelled that name wrong but it sure looks like one of his stocks. He ws big on ribbons like the one on your forend as well as the ribbon right on the side of the grip. should be a little gold/greenish spot on the bottom of the grip. Where a grip cap would be a on " lesser" shotgun! Jeff

    I see him at the trap shoots alot and out practiceing every once in awhile. I will print this thread and give it to him for you if you would like.

    Hi Tom how have you been? I haven't seen you around in a couple shoots will you be going to the spring grand? I'm still trying to get the hang of that new stock on my citori but when i get it figured out that will be a sweet shooting machine, right now all it does is look pretty.

    Hi Mark, Yes do a print of my post and give it to Tony to read, that would be great, maybe the pictures will jog his memory and he will remember the gun...

    I'm trying to find out who made the stock and who did the engraving for Perazzi, if it was inhouse or jobbed out in Italy.

    Any additional info will help...

    Thanks

    Chas

    Mark --

    This is quail hunting season for me. I'll probably be at Ben Avery's shoot the middle of January and I'll be at the Spring Grand for sure.

    If you ask me, the engraving and checkering patterns are not Perazzi at all. Perazzi does not commission any engraver in Italy that does this type of engravings. The stock is certainly not Perazzi nor Italian.

    These are similar patterns to the engraving Tony had been getting on his high-grade TS-2000's (Seitz-clone) and they are very nicely done. Tony told me they were engraved in Italy & I believe him.

    The TMX is clearly marked ADS on the receiver so no one is trying to pass this off as a gun that left the factory already engraced when new.

    P.S. ADS are his initials -- Anthony DeSimone

    In the 80's ADS engraved guns were quite common. I had an ADS MX3 live bird gun that I bought from Jaquas. I think Tony had the guns done in Italy. Some of them were done in the Perazzi patterns but not all. Mine was one of the SCO patterns but clearly marked ADS. Wish I still had it.

    Tony had those guns engraved in his home in Louisville, CO. I think it started in 1981......... I lived 5 minutes away from Tony & was at his home almost every day eating, drinking, & watching these guys, ( Vasco Rivera, Claudia Tomassoni, Bregoli & others working........ These guys would go days without engraving, & drove Tony crazy....But when they started a job - they would work till complete.... I had my Ljutic engraved by Tomasoni, it was incredible to watch these guys do their magic...Tony had paid all their expenses 100% to come to America to perform their great work...............Pete

    <blockquote><I>"There would be something wrong with anyone who would not be proud to own that artwork."</I></blockquote>It's cute, but art work costs and doesn't make the gun any more effective. Much rather see fancy cutting on a silver plate or goblet... something that is meant to just sit around and be looked at.
