    Oldie But Goodie : PERAZZI TM1 Custom Single Barrel Trap

    This TM1 is one of my favorite trap guns to shoot. It was made in 1973 and when I purchased it, is was in need of repair and restoration. Before I started on the cosmetics, I sent the gun to Giacomo for a total overhaul.

    I had the receiver and the trigger plated in nickel with a brushed finish. The trigger is a Bowen release. The barrel was ported, high polished blued and I added Briley Thin wall flush mount chokes.

    I sent the gun to Shooters Emporium and they made this fantastic set of Exhibition Grade Cesarean Walnut Stock set with their Soft-Touch System…

    This gun is not only pretty to look at, but it really smokes the targets and there is absolutely no recoil…

    I think the pictures speak for themselves on this one…..

    I hope you are enjoying looking at some of the older shotguns in my collection. I am sort of stuck in the house (medical reasons) and I enjoy sharing my passion of older shotguns with you….

    Thanks for looking…..

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    The barrels shoot fairly flat. If your stock is jacked up it will shoot higher. The way this one is set up it would be easy to change your POI.

    Steve,

    Rick979 is right. They way this one is set up, I hold right under the bird and it smokes it. Thats the way I like it, when I do shoot...

    Thanks,

    Nice to see a classic restored so nicely. A piece of trapshooting history preserved. The Winchester imports were always my favorite.

    Thanks for the comments...That is my intention...To hopefully preserve some of the older guns for future generations to come. Hopefully, when my Brand Spanking New Grandson, becomes of age, he will carry on the same traditions...

    Thanks again,

    Calvin,

    This TM1 was done by Billy Pierce about 15 years ago. He is no longer in the business, as far as I know...

    Hope this helps...
