    I just purchased an MX8 Combo from Gunbroker.com, and now that I have recieved it, I noticed that the initials "MAP" are stamped on the reciever and the barrels. Anyone know this person? I just wanted to get some history on the gun. It is a 34 Unsingle with a 29.5 O/U..lb

    lb,

    If the "MAP" letters are about 1/8" tall and stamped on the monoblock, I think what you are seeing are part of the manufacturer's stampings. There should be other small stampings on the monoblock, two letters inside a small box will determine manufacture date.

    MAP roughly translates to Manufacturer Armi Perazzi.

    Please post a pic of what you are asking about to make sure.

    MAP guy is a cartographer working for DeLorme in Ma. I believe. Ain't no Italian cartographers since Amerigo the mapmaker died. That's what Jon Lovitz told me anyway.
