    I have that set-up in my MX-8, works great. I bought it from Rafaelle several years ago, & they were Perazzi parts. He put them in my MX-11 originally, cost 75 bucks 5-6 years ago/ I took trigger apart & moved the parts to the MX-8, but it didn't work right. I took the gun to Giacomo last year at the Grand, & he fixed it. These parts are no longer available from Perazzi, they were made 15 years ago. I looked all over at the Grand this year for some for a friend of mine, but none available. Giacomo has some on order from someone, but won't be available for 6 mos or so. Apparantly they had done it before, but parts were no good. I don't about anyone else's parts, but mine works fine. I hope this helps, Joe O.

    I was going to post this same question just a couple of days ago. GMgunparts.com has these parts for something over $100. (Couldn't get their website to come up just now.) I just looked at my drop out trigger (has large inertia block for shooting "pansy" loads), but having never had the trigger apart, I couldn't see how it worked. Like Gregg, any information would be appreciated. Is there a "sliding part" that does the barrel switch?

    Externally selective triggers cost hundreds more than non-selective versions so I am surprised that a hundred dollar kit will do the same thing. I would guess that those parts do not make the trigger externally selectable.

    Are you guys wanting to shoot the top barrel first? or do you have a Topsingle that you want to fire once, then open and reload the single barrel?

    This can be done for free.

    Why not call Giacomo and see what he can do? Allems has selectable triggers for the Perazzi.

    I think, for the money, I will remove the cocking foot from the trigger assy'

    I had Kerry Allor do the same thing for me about 2 years ago. I do not remember the cost but he said he was running out of parts then. If I remember right, he said the parts are hand made.
