    I have been in dealings with Dan (Giacomo's son in law). Nothing but first class. I sent a WORN OUT Perazzi MX8 to them for total repair. When I mean total repair, I mean total. It needed rebluing, locking lugs, springs, sottering of side and top ribs, timing, etc. I talked with Dan personally, and he was the best! He answered all of my questions, and made me feel like I was a Big Dog! I wish Giacomo Sporting, Giacomo, and Dan the best. And yes, if I need a Perazzi repaired I will send it to them. Oh, I forgot - I needed firing pin holes welded and redrilled.

    Besides, Dan is fluent in Italian! Very nice and qualified person.

    Every business has a few problems. I sent a mx-8 barrell that had a loose side rib. After talking to Giacomo he said his son in law has fixed many barrels.
    I started out 50/50 and came back 70/30.
    I guess he forgot to check the jig.

    I wish Giacomo the best! He worked on my MX-8 a few years ago at the Missouri Fall Handicap and I was more than well pleased. I hope perhaps that Dan will come to Missouri maybe this Fall for the Handicap.

    Giacomo Arrighini ...

    I never knew his last name before this topic. But I have heard the name Giacomo mentioned a hundred times. I wonder if Giacomo Arrighini is related to Ed Arrighini the famous Helice shooter?

    Also, many people mention sending their Perazzi to Giacomo for an "annual". What is that, and how much does it cost?

    Thanks.
