    Does Perazzi or other similar quality mfg (Krieghoff Kolar, etc.) produce a top single only (not combo) 32-24" gun?

    So....None of these receivers are set up for a over-under? That is, they are designed for only one barrel? That's what I'm looking for.

    Thanks

    Your question is a little ambiguous.

    A Top Single means the single barrel that fits on an O/U receiver that aligns with the top firing pin.

    Is the question does any of the top end mfgs sell only a Top Single of a combo set without the O/U barrel or does anybody sell dedicated single barrel trap guns?

    I think the Kolar Max Trap T/S is a single barrel only.

    Krieghoff KS-5 and KX-5 too, I think.

    Yes, they all do or did at one time.

    Perazzi currently makes a TM-9 which is a true SBT. In the past they made a TM-1, TMS, TMX and TM-8 which were all SBTs.

    Krieghoff currently makes a KX-5 and previously made a KS-5.

    Kolar makes the T/S.

    Ljutic makes the Mono Gun in various trim levels.

    Silver Seitz is a SBT.

    These are all examples of the finest single barrel Trap guns. They were/are all made with one purpose in mind and all have receivers dedicated to singles. None can be made into a double. These are all properly called true SBT guns.

    Cutting off a barrel on o/u is not a true SBT gun they have a deeper receiver and are not near as slim and graceful as the real thing a Rube Goldberg type of move. I do not want to come off as a purest I simply always liked true SBT guns like Ithaca, Parker, LC Smith. Fox along with Ljutic, Sietz, BT 99 and the others.
    The bait is in the water bring it on.

    So...The SBT I'm looking for isn't, never was, never can be, or never was designed to accept a double. Do the TM-9 K-X5 and the Kolar T/S fit this fit this criteria? Are they in current production? I'm looking for a new gun or a used gun who's owner maybe passed away within say the last month. "Excellent Condition....98%" and so on doesn't tell you that the gun hasn't fired a 1/4 million shells. Living of the west coast, far away from big cities/shooting centers doesn't doesn't provide a much opportunity on a "good" used gun.

    I think the three best values in SBT guns right now are:

    Ljutic Mono Gun - Custom made for the customer ~$7K-$10K new depending on options.

    Kreighoff KX-5 - Off the shelf type gun, but very high quality <$5K.

    Kolar Max T/S - Comes generic or you can have the stock fitted to you. $$??

    If I had the cash, the Ljutic is my favorite. It has the simplest design and simply won't break.
