    You can always tell a fake Perazzi from a real one because it DOESN'T come with a bag of spare parts.

    Yes,

    I remember years ago there was a full page add, all in bright red in Trap & Field Magazine. If you call someone at Trap & Field they might be able to recall the add and send you a copy. If I remember the add it was on their real high grade models only.

    Is it true that a Perazzi is just a fake Bt-99?

    At the last '70's and a bit after, there was a flood of fake SCO Perazzis - standard MX-8's dressed in tuxedos - , some with engraving done in Europe, some by an engraver brought over stateside specially for the task. The only way to tell for sure is to send the serial number of a gun you may be thinking buying and getting confirmation that it really is what it is being represented to be.

    Before making a M21 GA, you had to start with a real M21. So I believe you have to start with a real Perazzi and then try to create one of the SCO Grades which always will get you into trouble because you have to buff off original markings and come up with an excuse for that. At one point in time, Perazzi would help to verify guns suspected of "upgrading". I have never held a Kemen gun in my hands or seen a Kemen trigger but I suspect it would be a lot more difficult to disguise an non-Perazzi as a Perazzi.

    Isn't the Perazzi a Kemen wannabe?

    Whe the BT-99 first came out it was refered to as the poor man's Perazzi. Still is.

    The BT99 is more like an old LC Smith SBT gun if you see them side by side. They both have a round barrel chamber.
