    Does anyone know of a good gunsmith in the DFW area who is knowledgable in the repair of Perazzis? I have a TM1 that has a couple of minor issues.
    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Just send it up to Doug Braker and have him fix it. His work is second to none and prices his work fairly.

    Send it to Dan at Giacomo Sporting in NY. They are the Perazzi experts. Get it done right the first time. Perazzi sttill makes all the TM1 parts for them. Also Giacomo usually comes down to the Southwest Grand.

    Ed,

    There were initially 2 issues. The sticky top lever was cured by a very thorough cleaning and lubricating. Number 2 has to do with the trigger. How much over travel should the trigger have? Mine has a good 1/4". What controls this?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Over travel? Do you mean travel before or after the hammer is released.

    Do you have a trigger that once was a release that someone removed part to turn it back into a pull??

    Ed,

    The excessive travel is after the hammer is released. Yes, apparently the trigger was a release at one time.

    Thanks,

    Ed,
    That may answer the question for you, but I still don't have a clue. Do I need to replace part(s)? The trigger works ok, it just goes a long way after the gun fires. There is a hole in the top of the left hand side of the trigger that has a small spring in it. The schematic I got from Whiz's web site shows a part that goes in there. I ordered the "Christmas tree" from Whiz. However when I put the part where it appears that it should go, the trigger will not fire. I'm stumped.

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Ed,

    There is a picture of my trigger in my post of Feb 22-23. I just bumped it up to the top.

    Wayne,
    If you're not familiar with the workings of your trigger, don't mess with it. People try to file (re-fit) parts and screw them up. Different gunsmiths make different modifications when installing their release hardware so, without seeing it. it's hard to tell what has to be either modified or replaced. If you have access to another factory trigger that you can compare yours with, it would probably be a big help or at least a step in the right direction.

    Good luck,

    Ed Yanchok
