    Just had to show this one off. It is a Perazzi MX-2000 with beautiful English Walnut. The gun belongs to a Lt. Colonel in the United States Force. The silver eagle in the grip is the wings he received and this was a gift for him making the rank. The customer worked with Cindy on the pattern for the stock and forend. The arrows were checkered to make them stand out and they are Air Force symbols. The guys enjoyed working on this and I believe it turned out very well. Thank you for looking and a special thank you to all the men and women that give their all so we at home can do what we love to do. Enjoy the photos,

    Dennis, Cindy & The Crew

    Dennis, you are THE master! BTW, that is the insignia for a full Colonel in the Air Force/Army.

    Dennis that gentelman did make full bird Colonel in the U.S. Air Force. I guess I will have to make my way to the first shoot when he pulls this beauty out and puts the Browning back.

    Great job on the stock!

    Rick,

    It is not Col. Harms unless the shooter that came in was under an assumed name. One never knows.

    I saw that beautiful Perazzi Saturday. Our friend just received it from Dennis on Friday and came out to the club to try it out. He shot ten rounds and shot it well. He is presently a Lt. Col., but has received his promotion to take effect in November, therefore the insignia. The wood is even more spectacular than the pictures show. Great work, Dennis and Cindy.
