    Hi,
    Does anyone shoot a perazzi MX2005 undersingle? How do you like it or dislike it. I currently shoot a MX2000 and was wondering if you like the higher rib compared to the 2000. Any input would be appreciated, Thank You Richie

    Had one for about 4 years, after shooting a 2000 for several years. It's a good gun, but there's a learning curve to it. You won't figure it out in an afternoon. Give it a couple thousand rounds to reprogram your brain a bit and don't switch back and forth to a sporties or skeet gun. It takes a little work, but you'll like being able to shoot with your neck straight instead of all hunched over like you do with a field gun. Recoil is minimal.

    It helped to put on an adjustable butt plate to minimize canting and raise your mount a bit higher. It also helped to pattern the gun to help visualize where it shoots. Pattern your 2000 first and then use the comb to shoot to the same POI.

    I guess it's similar to switching from one eye to two eyes. It takes a little effort. It's a sweet gun once you figure it out.

    I have heard there have been some problems with the MX-2005 rib coming loose.

    I heard this personally from a dealer who had sold the Perazzi New and had to send it back for repair.

    bobdog has it right.. I never really got use to mine..and sold the barrel at the GRAND last year.. When I almost had it down.. it was a very easy gun to shoot.. The Olympic team had one that was very light and dynamic..It REALLY shot well.. If you get one.. order a LIGHT barrel.. It makes a world of difference.. AND.. the stock fitting is vastly different than a MX10.. The whole geometry is different.. I'd venture to say.. only one out of 50 MX2005's are fitted correctly.. Then.. a panic sets in.. before you figure it out.. and sell the gun..

    Gary, it sounds like the dealer had a problem with one gun, because there aren't many of them around. Mine has held up well and still feels new.

    To be fair, I did break a leaf spring so far, but I broke 2 on my MX2000. It's pretty common with Perazzi's. Other than that, no problems.
