    Hey guys,
    I am looking for some general thoughts on the value of a TM1. I have not shot trap in a few years and my local club has closed this year. So, I am putting my trap gun up for sale but have no idea what the value range might be. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It is a Perazzi TM1, Ithaca Import with adjustable comb, RAD recoil reducer (both comb and RAD are fully adjustable), removable add on rib, set of weights, choke tubes and hard case.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Steve, 34" or 32" barrel? Is the barrel original? No porting or backboring. If 34" and original, it is worth about 1700-2000. If the barrels are 32" or have been messed with then about 500 less. If both 32" and messed with barrels then even less desirable. Jake

    Steve, is the bbl. tubed or fixed? Some people only like one or the other. And, what is the condition of the wood and gun bluing? Pull or release trigger? The TM-1 is enjoying some resurgence in popularity, so a picture might draw you some offers.

    Buz, he says "choke tubes" in his original post. That kills it for me. I like the original, fixed-choke barrels with no re-work. Hard to find these days.

    Original Perazzi choke tubes don't usually make a gun less desirable. Perazzi chokes work well. Course, Curvy is apparently out of the running. A shame.
