    MX-15 is a designated ATA gun, with max. range of adjustments on the rib, offered at entry level price. Probably the best selling single model in the U.S.

    It has almost everything you needed from factory in a SBT gun. It also has the ability to add on another O/U barrel later if you desire.

    Hey Stever... Does the new MX15 come with the modern stock or the older "canoe" style?

    Next 15 that rolls thru my door is going to get my old fave MX3 stock on it and go out and play.

    I absolutely loved mine. Great price range great all around target gun. But like all perazzis they do have some recoil. Just my opinion. BYG

    BYG. The 18.4s have more perceived recoil than the 18.7. Ihave owned and shot 7 or 8 MX15s and the first one kicked and it was a 18.4. The last one I had did nto kick at all and it was a 18.7. SIZE MATTERS

    Buy the receiver, trigger assy, and barrel. Have Wenig or someone put a custom fit stock on it. You'll ride that horse a long way.

    I like mine a lot.....bought it used, and it came with Briley Chokes, and barrel work by Wilkinson.

    Love mine...also added and O/U and it works great! I have the 18.4 one and think the recoil is fine. Seems much better than the other Brownings and Berettas. Need to find an 18.7 to try.

    Steve W. Curious what the best choice for a MX15 o/u would be. The one that is closest to same rib height for similar POI

    Great un-single shoots from 60/40 to 100%+ Plus adjustable comb, comes fixed and tubed models, 728 bore and .740 bore models, low recoil, if adjusted properly, used from $4000-$5000.

    Thanks everyone. I shot a MX2005 this year and had some good handicap scores and some real disasters. Not sure that I can handle the rib. Feels great shooting but I've struggled with it.

    Find a nice, original MX-14 O/U barrel - mine works fine. It may take some time to find one because so many Perazzi owners mess the barrels up with aftermarket porting, chokes, barrel work - you name it. Regards, Ed

    A well-made gun, although it kicks like a mule! I had the larger 18.7 bore model but it still kicked considerably more than other guns I've owned. After trying a number of recoil reducing attempts, I eventually gave up and sold it.

    Balderdash on being a kicker. If it kicked it didn't fit.

    I don't have the MX 15 but I do have the MX 10RS. For me , it is the softest shooting gun I have ever shot. Mine is untouched except for the yearly ding that seems to hunt for my stock.

    A lot to be said for a well fitted stock.

    This MX-15 with the Wenig HC stock allows me to comfortably shoot AA Super Handicaps.

    This is by far the most comfortable shooting shotgun I've ever used.

    I have one and it does have a Gracoil on it and it is a very soft shooter.
