    My first thread so hopefully I have done it right :)

    I am from Australia and recently bought this gun 2nd-hand. Havent seen this type of receiver before so it must be an oldy....does anyone know what model, age etc this is?

    The history is that it was built from the receiver in 2002, P triggers and forend added along with Kemen barrels.....it should be called a Kemazzi.

    Anyway, appreciate if anyone can shed some light, cheers.

    Welcome to TS.

    The receiver is a re-blued, flat side model for square monobloc. If it has detachable trigger, it's equivalent to MX-11. The current production MX-14, MX-15 receivers are basically the same, only with different ribs on their barrels.

    Kemen made many barrels for Perazzi owners in the past (till the '90s). If it's properly fitted, it's as good as any Perazzi. But since it's made in Spain, no Italian proof marks to read year of production.

    Your forearm is type IV, that's current. The iron has also been re-blued.

    Can't see enough of the breech face to tell where the top lever trip is located, but seems it's a late model. PM me with the ser. # on the fence, I'll find out when the receiver was made.

    Hi Steve, thanks for your time in responding to my thread.

    Yes it does have drop out triggers and you are 100% correct in that both the receiver and forend have been reblued. The fore-end wood was bought from Perazzi dealer whilst the stock was made by a Aussie stockmaker. Kemen barrels have been fitted by a gunsmith so they are good. Serial number on receiver is 30737...does this help with a year?

    Look forward to your reply...you obviously know your stuff and I appreciate your time.

    Regards
    Terry

    Your receiver looks to be an SC1 type 1 circa 1966. They came in blue, case colored or bright. Left side lever trip. SC1 were discontinued about 1975, though the fixed trigger MT-6 and others shared the same receiver contour. They have not made guns with that external appearance since about 1984. The Kemen barrels were highly favored for their light weight; they pushed the envelope further than Perazzi at that time. Though a "build-up" it's still a nice gun and undoubtedly will shoot.

    Terry,

    Gap gave a good assessment on the SC style receiver. Yes, the ser. # sure falls in 1967 production, and back then the plain side receiver were SC guns.

    Your receiver was made at the first few year (second year of Perazzi 5 digit numbers), right after Ivo Fabbri left Perazzi, and Ennio Mattarelli was still in partner with Daniele Perazzi.

    Your receiver pre-dated Ithaca importation in the U.S., of course it got nothing to do with yours. :)

    Kemen barrels were not much less expensive than Perazzi barrels at the time, they also made many "Universal" barrels that's both square & rounded monobloc. They are all type IV.

    As I said, if it's properly fitted, it's as good as any Perazzis.

    Shoot well, and enjoy your Perazzi.

    Thanks you again Steve and also Gapper for your valuable input. I thought is was an early model, nearly as old as me :)

    Good thing about it is that it is in good condition and I do like shooting it. Only had in for under 6 months but have shot well with it in the time I have had it.

    Thanks again for filling in the gaps....good shooting to you both!

    Regards
    Terry
