    Some barrel stats: True 30" fixed 8/10 bottom, 10/10 top (18.4 bores by request) 11X7 Low bunker rib, with tramline down center . no side ribs, and get this stamped at 1.440 kg. but actual weight is 1.425 kg on digital postal scale. All iron except for barrel and trigger finished in silver. Gun tips scale at 8 lbs 7.4 oz.

    Thanks for the comments guys!!!

    Sportshot,

    The reciever is engraved as a Lusso grade, or luxury grade pierced top lever and pigeon in the forearm.

    As for the lightest 32" or 31 1/2" barrels I have heard of I think Coldtrail had a set with tubes no side ribs at I think 1.580 kg.

    Sernv99 had a perazzi listed on here that had tubes with 1.630 kg. Those are the two lightest sets I have heard of that are 31 1/2" both had no side ribs.

    Sportshot - I own a set of GA1 31.5 barrels that are stamped 1.55. They have ventilated side ribs. In my opinion, lighter is not always better for box bird domestic pigeons.

    Giacomo measured my barrels and he said they are a true 32", no side ribs, with original extended chokes tubes, coming in a 1.63kg....for me, that would be the minimum I would want to go as far as weight in a barrel set. Even then, I think it's a bit too light. It feels lighter than my 32" DT10. But I'm selling it, the flat rib isn't my style. Prefer my high ribbed guns and a bit more weight to the gun itself.

    Every shooters has his own style.. likes and dislikes.. LG now.. with his beautiful weight barrels has a dynamic gun..which in bunker/sporting clays is a must.. How many heavy trackstars do you see??? Same in bunker.. you have to get to the target..
    In Europe.. many of the Perazzi barrels are much lighter than what is exported to America.. I was once loaned a MX10 31.5" wirth adjustable rib at 1.46KG.. I SHOULD havwe bought the gun..

    I've since built my MX-10 ultra-light.. Tom Wilkinson barrel .028/.038 No sideribs... 1.38 KG.
    For the many shooters who get it right everytime.. my hat is off to you.. What I have found is when my initial approach to the target is off.. I can flick..and get back on the correct path.. I don't need to push..just a flick.. BUT.. shooting a light weight gun takes control.. as you 391 shooters know.. to keep your swing going.. and not overshoot the target..

    In any event Little Gambler has put down good money to order his bunker gun.. He choose wisely..and I hope it gives him a lifetime of pleasure.. I forgive him for selling his other bunker gun now.. As I thought it was perfect..but seeing its replacement... He's still moving up..

    All Good.. Mike

    Sportshot.. Perazzi has always made a real dynamic shotgun.. Just the AMERICAN shooter wanted a 9 pound trapgun.. Most all of the Olympic shooters have very dynamic barrels.. and most of what I see in Italy,England,and France has been in the 1.40/1.50 KG range..

    My barrels were .729 backbored to .736 and the sideribs removed..
    As I said before.. I found a used MX10 in Italy that was very similar to my MX10 I built..
