    I'm looking at buying a gun from him with no return privilege. I know that he is aregular on here, and he seems knowledgeable and straight-up. Anyone done any deals with him? Please, no general posts about buying without return privilege.

    I know he is one of the contributing editors for Blue Book, a personal friend of the late Daniele Perazzi and Lucio, and a collector of English, Italian shotguns and Patek Philippe wrist watches, his email address is named after his favorite watch. Also a pretty good shot from what I heard.

    I bought three Perazzis, 1 sideplate, 1 SCO, and 1 MX-8. One Fabbri piegon gun. One Holland & Holland Royal Game gun from him in the past 10~15 years. All his personal guns. Other than the now closed Ivory Beads, he is the best source of fine shotguns for me. No returns on all his deals. I had to fly to L.A. to check the first gun I bought from him. Everything went very well since. He did send me a new parts kit because there was a hairline crack on the MX-8 stock he didn't see.

    My only complain is his prices. I've never paid anything less than what he asked for. He gave me a free extra stock for the Royal Game Gun as a discount.

    A very knowledgeable person and a true gentleman.

    Thanks, Peter. You confirmed what I believed to be the case, although I had no idea of the extent of his gun dealings. Mine is very small time.

    With the 5 guns that P.S. says he has purchased, those 5 probably add up to more than 95% of what most shotgunners would spend in two lifetimes on guns.......

    I have had several dealings with Steve. Never a problem. He is a personal friend and fellow Perazzi owner. He is exteremely knowledgeable when it comes to shotguns in general and he is also a contributer to the Blue Book in the Perazzi section. You should have no concerns at all in dealing with him.
    I would certaintly worry about that Little Gambler guy in the previous post though. Just kidding about Ricky. Great guy and great shot.

    Mo,


    He is as honorable as they come on this site. He is also very knowledgable on Mossbergs and Remington 870s.

    Some time back I purchased a barrel from Steve. Price seemed fair to me and was just as described. Instant shipping. He def takes care of business. I can't tell you if he beat me on the deal or not, but if he did I'm down w/ that. I got a primo barrel out of the deal and that was what matters.
