    I rescued an Ithaca Perazzi single barrel trap gun from a pawn shop today.Is this a TM1? It has a 4 digit serial number, 29XX. How old is it? I brought it home and put a snap cap in it to check out the trigger. Seemed pretty good except for the fact that it has about 3/8" of overtravel. Is it possible there is a part(s) missing? Where can I get a schematic of the trigger? All information is appreciated. More questions to come,I'm sure.

    Thanks in advance

    Wayne

    Thanks Rick,

    How does one tell the difference between the 2?

    According to the serial # it's a TM-1. Check Whiz White's web site for a schematic. A picture would help.

    The TM1 is a true single barrel gun, with one firing pin hole on the breech face. The Comp 1 is an O/U model that also available as a top single, but has two firing pin holes on breech face.

    The ser. # belongs to '73 TM1.

    Here's a pic of my TM1 receiver, the fence is very shallow.

    Sorry Rick, that was way before my time. :)

    I know a Comp 1 O/U was selling at $795 in '73 because I saw a receipt in the case of one.

    An old friend of mine purchased an OU Comp and a SB Trap Comp at the same time in the late 60's. I want to say 1968. His father paid $600 for each.

    I have a TM1. It has one firing pin hole. I looked at Whiz's schematic. My trigger seems to be a little different. The trigger has 2 holes for springs instead of the one shown in the schematic. See picture.


    Thanks to all for your help,

    I think you're missing the stop pin for trigger return spring. Whiz has it.

    Steve,

    Yes, it is missing the pin, # 409 in the schematic. What about the extra block on the right? It has a hole in the top with a spring in it that is about flush with the top of the hole. Is this leftovers from a botched release removal?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Can anybody tell me what is the purpose of the lighter colored piece of metal to the right of the trigger? It has a hole in the top that has a compression spring in it.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Here's a factory TM1 trigger, you can compare the differences.

    How about drilling and tapping a small hole in the bottom of the trigger guard just behind the trigger shoe. A 6-48 screw of the proper length can then be used to reduce the amount of over travel. HMB

    Sounds like you might have a trigger that was converted back to a pull from a release. Send it to Giacomo and have it corrected. I have owned P guns since the early 70's and I don't think the Comp I was available with a sgl. from the factory. George Snellenberger did have the first sgl. P gun in the country. I can not recall if it was an MX or a Comp I. The MX was designed for the Mexico City Olymipics in 1968 thus the MX 8

    I bought a new comp 1 skeet gun in 1973 for 750 dollars in the case-bought a new comp1 trap gun in the case in 74 for 1000. dollars--Still shooting both today and have only changed a few parts in each. Best guns I have ever owned and I've owned k-guns,high end berettas, and others too numerous to mention.

    I never picked up one of those old Comp 1 trap guns that didn't work like dyn-o-might for me but could never rationalize the cost. Oh my, if I'd only bought a box car full of'em.....breakemall......Bob Dodd
