    Why do you suppose Perazzi has so many different designations for basically the same guns? MX1,2,3....etc, etc for example. I think this hurts them way more than it helps and causes utter confusion for most people, not to mention it KILLS resale for previous designations. Why not keep it simple, like Krieghoff and offer one designation, like the K80?? A K80 is a K80 year after year and the resale remains higher because of this in my opinion.

    Very strange marketing stratagies indeed.

    Any thoughts???

    I don"t see the k80 selling any better than the P guns Have you ever looked on here for what a set of mx10 o/u barrels sell for? Why you could go buy a good used truck for what they sell for,

    I'm also confused about 1100 & 1187. If 1187 was meant to be an updated version (better?) of 1100, why are they going back to make 1100? Are 2-3/4" & 3" camber only available to one of them or both? What happen to the 1196?

    I'm also somewhat confused about 390 & 391/3901. Some 390 has squared back, some don't. Does 3901 parts interchange with 390?

    :)

    Actually, I think it's a insightful question...

    I shoot a MX-15, and a MX-3 special...

    basically, same gun, barrels interchange....

    They did and do offer a lot more variants than Krieghoff. Perhaps this actually avoids confusion among knowledgeable buyers.

    You're correct about resale too, the intro of the K-80 sent model 32 prices into the bargain basement.

    It's a marketing strategy as old as homo sapiens. It works too.

    I thought the MX-8 was introduced for, and named for, the Mexico City 1968 Olympics.
