    You will not regret buying a TMX. Like dancing with the prettiest girl at the ball.

    Great guns. Designed for shooters that have or want to have an upright shooting style. Some folks look at them and think they shoot high because the rib is higher. They are not real high POI shooting guns.

    I've owned several and would consider them to be one if not the best value for a single barrel trap gun regardless of age or manufacture. They are great pointing guns are extremely durable and are repairable by any qualified gun smith. Can't go wrong

    I bought one from Merlyn about three years ago at our state shoot. I love it. If you haven't shot one, do so. I think you will be impressed.

    I bought a really nice TMX, then got a deal on a MX-2000/8 combo set, considering going back to and staying with the TMX ... I actually like both of them so I might just keep them both unless I can get a good offer on the MX-2000 ... I played with the TMX and got it to shoot 80/20 which is close enough ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    TMXs are great guns, as well as TM-1s I prefer the TM-1Special they shoot higher, and most are choked Extra Full

    Simple guns and simple repairs, especially the springs you can fix on the line with the enclosed kit, nothing faster than a leaf spring in my opinion

    WPt, about the same thing happened here. The following year I bought an MX 14-L combo;which I liked and shot fairly well except for the O/U on doubles.Last year I went back to the TMX. May have to get rid of the combo.

    I bought mine new in the early 70's. I had Tom Seitz do the barrel before I shot it. I now have close to 250k through it. I spent 20+ years in AA & 27 using the gun. Now on 3rd locking bolt. The hammer cracked in the first year(a common occurance at that time). I shortened the ejector springs to improve the extractor life (never broke). I would never hesitate to recommend a TMX.

    I have my second one, a TMX Special with fixed full choke in great condition. Had one before and foolishly sold it to a friend who wanted one badly. I was always sorry I sold it so spent 6 or 8 months looking for another. This one stays with me. Great reliable guns that are getting hard to find in nice original condition although they can be rebuilt at a reasonable cost. If you buy it right you can most likely sell it for as much or more than you paid if you decide you don't like it for some reason. No cons for me.

    Thanks to everyone who responded, TMX sounds like a very good gun, but from

    advise on some of my PM's I think I will just save up my "stach" and go for my

    1st. love a NICE MX3 combo.

    Thanks

    IMHO, you'll have to go a long way to beat a Perazzi TM gun. I've got one and am looking at 3 others.
