    The beauty of this gun is how tight it is, that the bbls are still orginal, and that the only stock mod is a Pachmayr Pad and a Doub Braker adj comb.

    Show me one finer.

    Best I have ever seen!!!! I shot a MX3 for years and still think it is one of the best natural shooting guns ever made.I still have dreams about that gun-the best are the ones you trade!I still think it was one of Perazzi's best-2nd behind the MX8. To find one this beautiful is amazing!

    Need to shoot it this week to see if I want to keep it. But likely I will have the stock replicated before it leaves me. These unmolested stocks are rare items and I need a stockmaker to dup these things in Perazzi fashion. This stock is too good of an example to let leave without putting the numbers on duplicator computer. Watch for a secnd gun going up.

    Golan-man. I have a plan. I'll let yo know how it goes. but it looks to me like chum... Chum. Well, my plan fell thru. So, I will be shooting this gun for a while.

    Actully I shot it extremely well. fits really good, Better in fact. but I shot the TM1 better. And I have another comieng in on Friday. I'll have that with me on Saturday. I may keep thiem all. But likely not the TM1. i ahve a fellow that deserves that gun and will be extremely proud to carry it to the (any) club. Stay tuned.

    Sunday plan from here on out is noon at 3M. Be there.

    SSP on Friday, MGC Saturday, 3M Sunday. That leaves only four wasted days per week. Not a bad plan.
    Keep the MX3. My Dad told me to never sell a gun I could shoot.

    Paul. What yu need to see is a pad I have on a MX stock that I did. I heeled it in and toed it out as much as the materialwould allow. And blended thechanges down thru the middle of the pad. Veks good. I'll see if I cna find a pic of that...

    The XLT you see is just ground off at the bottom. Needs more grinding.

    Ross. That is a great question. Perazzi. Orig finish on the stock. A 20-25 year old stock that had little use. I am having it replicated for posterity and a developing stock business. This and my TM1 stock are as good as they get for 90% of shooters. You and I need to talk about that.

    Ross, I was incomplete in my response. The forend was a bit tacky and Doug refinished that. It is perfect.
