    I have a Perazzi Grand American, which I don't shoot very often and have lost the middle bead on my O/U barrel. I don't remember if it was ivory or white. I can replace it with a steel bead, but would like to keep it original if possible. If it was ivory, any recommendations where I could get one. Thanks all for your help. Tafford (406) 863-9866

    The original middle bead on a non-collectable Perazzi shotgun is not important except on MX-9, which has interchangeable mid beads to match stock adjustments for POI.

    It's not ivory. Steel mid bead will be fine on GA.

    Original Perazzi beads were metal and permenently pressed in. Eventually they break off, then either a white plastic press-in bead is installed or the old bead is drilled out, tapped with a 3-56 thread, and a silver or gold bead threaded in.
