1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for some wisdom from the group, again...

    If the price (~$11K), condition, year of manufacturing (~2008), and options of the guns are about the same, which gun will have a better resell value down the road? : a) Perazzi MX2000 nickel finish receiver Sporter 32” OR b) Krieghoff K-80 Gold Super Scroll Sporter 32”?

    Let’s assume the shooter can shot both guns equally well and both guns fits the shooter equally well, based on your experience, which sporting gun holds it’s value better and easier to sell down the road?

    Thanks again for your attention and time.

    Best Regards,

    I shoot a 2008 Perazzi MX2000 sporter with a nickel receiver and 34" barrels. I can tell you right now that in the same condition the Gold Super Scroll K80 is going to be worth probably 1 1/2 times (or more) what my MX2000 is. Perazzi and Krieghoff are where it's at for resale, but you're going to have to give the nod to Krieghoff. I have bought and sold a box car load of both and that's just the way it is. I am a Perazzi guy at heart but the K80 just sells...period. Also, a MX2000 and a Gold Super Scroll K80 is not an apples to apples comparison. SC3 and Gold Super Scroll would be a better one.

    For some reason the Krieghoff has a higher resale value. Of all the higher grade target guns, I believe Krieghoff has the best resale. Now, for my opinion.......if you had a Perazzi MX2000 and a Krieghoff Gold Super Scroll laying side by side for same price, I would pick the Perazzi every time. Krieghoff's are not appealing to me, and I don't care for the handling characteristics but that's just my opinion.

    The K gun has the most resale value, particularly, in the USA.
    The Perazzi is the MUCH BETTER shooting gun.

    Given the options, assuming the same price, K80 hands down.

    FYI if the MX2000 is used then you are paying too much.

    You could buy a New Perazzi MX2000 for way less then 11k.

    Call Larry Friedman at 301-996-8680 and Tell him Bill Dennis sent you.
