    .

    Would someone describe the evolution of the Perazzi single-shot trap gun ?

    I think it started with the TM1.

    Think it currently is at the TM9.

    But I don't know all the models and features in between.

    Appreciate it.

    I'n not sure they are evolutionary but the TMS (a TM1 with choke tubes) and the TMX were between the TM1 and TM9. The TMX had a fixed high rib. And I believe the TM1 was called the Comp. 1 for awhile in the mid-seventies. The TM9X has an adjustable rib.
    I believe all are mechanically the same and most parts interchange but, some parts will need to be refitted.

    Lots of models and features; here goes.

    TM-1 (flat rib, step rib, step tapered rib)

    Comp V (stripes on the receiver and has choke tubes)

    TMS (also called TM-1S and TM-1, plain receiver and has choke tubes)

    TMX (high rib like the DB-81)

    TM-10 (MX-10 style adjustable teeter rib)

    The TM-9 and 9X as currently made are slightly different than the older guns, but close enough to include in the series.

    A multitude of variations exist, but this list is fairly close to a chronological order.

    Best regards, GAP

    In the beginning it was Comp 1. Then TM1 designated.

    Pheasantmaster is correct.

    TM-1 was the manufacturer designation, "Competition I single barrel trap" was the Ithaca (importer) model identification. Same gun, made for the U.S. market.

    The factory stamped the model number in the receiver wall; though they were marketed with differing model names. I think they're all stamped "TM-(?)"

    When Winchester took over importation, they just sold it as the TM-1.

    Ithaca also marketed the SC-1 over/under as "Comp 1" prior to around 1975, which only added to possible confusion. GAP
