    I saw a couple really nice TM9X's on the Pacific Sporting website and was wondering how many people are shooting them? I have seen a few at SoCal shoots, but not nearly as many as "regular" MX8/2000/TM1/TMX's. I know it is a relatively new gun but was curious about feedback. The one's I have seen for sale seem to have fairly light chokes, around 30-32 thou. Were there many seen at the Spring Grand?

    I shoot a TM9X and it has 35 thou constriction with an over sized bore
    Shoots good for me.

    Not that many because there weren't that many made and they fell victim to devaluation of our dollar and came new with a pretty heavy price tag. If you are a "heads up" shooter or want to be then it's a great and well balanced gun. If not, the Tm9x is probably not the gun for you.

    From a dollar standpoint,would a good,untampered with,TMX be a better purchase??? What are the advantages of the newer gun? Tom

    Just recently picked up a 2010 model TM9 with Perazzi SC3 wood and a factory adjustable semi-rollover comb. This is my fourth trap gun and by a very wide margin, it is also my favorite. Outstanding balance, extremely low recoil, and points like nothing I have ever had! 18.7 bore and 32 thousandths constriction. Could not be any happier with the gun.

    I purchased a TM9x in 2010 as I had just gone through back surgery, and I thought a lighter gun might prove to be an advantage if not a necessity. I also thought at my age (71), I might move the gun better. To my eye, this Perazzi model has an extraordinarily graceful design that looks like a single barrel trap gun should look, and I have always had a weakness for good looking guns. The old cliche that "Nothing swings like a Perazzi." is certainly true of the TM9x. The 1.42 kg barrel's bore measured .742 and the choke had a .034 constriction. On paper, the gun threw a great looking pattern, and recoil was negligible.

    When my back got better the following year, I decided to start pursuing doubles again, and my old doubles gun was so different from the TM9x that I decided to get a Perazzi combo and I sold the TM9x. However, based on my experience with the gun, one would be hard pressed to find a better singles or handicap gun, particularly if you are looking for a lighter gun that moves easily to the target. They are well built, and should last several lifetimes. J.G.Sayle

    Purchased a TM9...really tried to like it. Shot it fairly well. Least recoil of any gun I've ever shot. But at the end of the day, I took it back. Just didn't move me like a gun that price should. Replaced it with a lightly used, bone stock, 35 year on TM1 (at 25% of the cost), and I am absolutely in love. Don't get me wrong, the TM9 is a fine gun...I just think the TM1 is better, ESPECIALLY for the $$$$.

    The Tm9x has a factory adjustable rib and Perazzi's latest stock design. I think it's the best looking Perazzi ever made.

    Great answers so far. The lines of the gun are very attractive to me as well. They have a Lusso at PSA and it is just beautiful. If I were in the market for a single shot, I would sure have that on my list. But it would have to be choked tighter than .030.
