    I'm trying to figure out the differences in the Perazzi trap guns. Is the MX2000 receiver the same as the MX10 except for the engraving? How is the MX10 over/under barrel different fron the MX10 RS barrel? Is the MX2000RS barrel the same as the MX10RS barrel? Does the MX10 top single have much difference in recoil from the MX10RS unsingle? If one wants the MX10 top single combo does that mean that the O/U should be matched with the MX10 barrel and not the MX10RS? I'm shooting a lot of wobbles and I need a fairly quick handling gun. I'm finding that my K-80 Trap Special over/under is a bit heavy and slow to swing in continental/wobble games. I like the higher rib of the MX10 over the MX8 for visibility. Any thoughts of the MX10 vs MX2005 vs MX2000/3 in regards to continental/wobbles vs regular trap targets? Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Bob

    Can't say I'm an expert, but I can answer some of your questions about Perazzis, Bob

    1) MX-2000 & MX-10, MX-8, & all the sea shell sculpted receivers are the same, MX-2000 are just engraved.

    2) MX-10's adj. rib is lower than the RS, MX-2000RS or MX-10RS are the same.

    3) In theory, top single might have more felt recoil than unsingle, because the bore is more inline with the shooter's shoulder. I can't proof it, but some swear by it.

    4) Because of the rib hight, MX-10 top single should paired with MX-10 O/U, or you'll have to adj. your comb everytime you change to a RS barrel.

    5) As for the thoughts, personally I don't need adj. the rib to line-up the beads, the adj. rib is useless for me. I change POI with my stocks. Any adj. rib on the barrel will slow you down on Bunker.

    5-1) MX-2005 is a joke IMO.

    JFYR, these were taken from the '08 Olympics, most are trap shooters, all flat ribs.

    ps. no straight-up neck, no elbow up either.

    Correction to Steve W's post. The MX-10 Top Single and matching O/U have rib heights a touch HIGHER than on the MX-2000RS and MX-10RS

    Notice that they are all wearing earmuffs too. Cannot remember what the temp was during Olympics but it was not cold. One of the finalists wore no shooting glasses either. Great show the Chinese put on.

    k-80 unsingle

    "Any thoughts of the MX10 vs MX2005 vs MX2000/3 in regards to continental/wobbles vs regular trap targets? Any input is appreciated."

    The thoughts I have on the Perazzi's the weight I don't think you will find much difference they are as heavy as the K80. Gon't take my word for that see if you can find someone that will let you try their Perazzi.

    Adjustable ribs have their good point and bad points it is a matter of preference.

    Steve W is not entirely correct with his picture as the first shooter in the series appears to have a flat ribbed gun Yet as you can see in the this picture that is not quite so.

    Also Olympic Silver Medalist Francesco D'Aniello doesn't shoot what I would call a low ribbed gun

    Also Olympic Gold Medalist in Trap Doubles American Glenn Eller doesn't shoot a flat ribbed gun either.

    So you can see it is really a matter of preference

    "I'm shooting a lot of wobbles and I need a fairly quick handling gun. I'm finding that my K-80 Trap Special over/under is a bit heavy and slow to swing in continental/wobble games."

    K80 unsingle asked about a gun to shoot continental/wobble games according to you he was given an an answer that would seem to pertain to Olympic Singles Trap. I was pointing out that in double target games high rib gun seem to be the standard even in the Olympics. With all due respect to your response you said.

    "The trend is still definitely to low ribs in single trap these days for both men & women"

    I agree but K80 wasn't asking about singles he said.

    " Any thoughts of the MX10 vs MX2005 vs MX2000/3 in regards to continental/wobbles vs regular trap targets? Any input is appreciated"

    There fore my response hopefully you may get a better understanding of why I responded the way I did.

    Any way it is just my opinion.

    Thanks for the input. I should have also said that I need a quicker handling gun for doubles. I've got to muscle the K-80 TS to shoot a pair quickly. I've seen a couple of Perazzi live bird/bunker guns that may be pretty quick handling, but I don't want something that is too whippy that I can't control. They have 29 1/2" barrels which seem a bit short. Anyone have any experience with these? I have a Browning Sporting gun that handles well, but the sporting stocks do not fit me that well with so much drop in the comb. I prefer parallel combs. My best fitting singles gun is a Ljutic Centennial Pro. I think that I like the Perazzis because they have a similar feel with the pistol-type stock grip. I need a doubles gun that fits me as well and handles as well as my Ljutic. This is my "impossible" search for the right doubles gun. Any other feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Thanks, Bob

    For me the Remington 3200 fits the bill for double trap. HMB
