    You know ... the ones that had a butt from Barrel 'A' and a forend from Barrel "B".

    The 'Danielle' stocks, 'Nope ... too fancy, that wood will split in 5 yrs and change POI if the humidity goes up. THIS ONE!, yes, there's a twirl of dark way back there ... Perfect!'

    You know the ones. The stocks as they came ... fit. Well, kinda sorta, anyhow, and with just a bit off here, and a touch gone from there ...

    And you grabbed the wood rasp, files and sanding block; moleskin and masking tape ... and never had a guilty thought?

    With SCO (and better) wood, it ain't exactly like that nowadays, is it?

    Yes.

    Perfect, Steve ... before & after! No matter how badly your pretty gun fit, there is no man strong enough to take a wood-rasp to THAT comb.

    Neil, where did you get the pic of Danielle's stock bin? :)

    Have a delightful.

    Neil,
    For a second, I thought that you were in my basement to take that picture.

    Nah, Ed. Everyone who's owned a few old Perazzis has a basement like that.

    You like Old Perazzis then I have one for you. It's the 140th Perazzi ever made. Giacomo said he did some of the finish work on it when he worked in the factory prior to coming to the US. it's nearly all original. All numbers match. It sat in a guys safe for nearly 40 years. I bought it off the estate sale. It's a Pigeon gun. Choked .25 and .50. It will really smash a target. 28-3/8 barrel. It has two stocks. The original and one I had made. The gun is primo and has been serviced by Giacomo. Shot very little. it's time to move it out of my safe. $3750 and it's yours.

    I guess I must be the exception! I have had my Perazzi MX-8 (Ithaca) since 1978 and I am still shooting it! I did have a new recoil pad put on it, but otherwise, the stock is the same as when I bought it.

    But what fun is that, Allen? And what are you going to burn for heat after the big one?

    Perazzi was about winning. I do not own anything post 1986, for any gun, (can not comment on newer). The quality as I have stated before (prior thread) on early Perazzi is fine. I miss my MX-8 from 1969 type 2. The old one that I have now has 3 cracks in the stock. Production code code XXX my favorite, 1974, choked full, super full. Mike Sharkey, DC

    For you bunker shooters.. the early .724 bore barrels choked .03X and .044/.045 do amazing things on the bunker field. I rarely see a barrel made today that can produce those HOT center cores I like.. Most of those older barrels were molested to shoot doubles with 1 1/8 oz.. I treasure the few barrels I own that can consistently smoke targets at 60 yards with 24 gram.. Those old barrels do it consistently..if pointed correctly..

    The pigeon gun I have for sale will do exactly that. Second barrel performance is outstanding. It measurers .50 but it really throws a pattern.

    This thread made me feel a lot better about recently grinding on my "new to me" TM 1 stock. I had much less remorse grinding on Browning stocks for years. Thanks guys.
