    Looking at a Perazzi Mirage-S, 34" top single. Haven't been able to contact the seller to get a serial #, but IIRC, all of the Mirage-S guns were type 4 w/ 9 o'clock top lever release, correct?

    Worst case, I can get a 3 day inspection and send it back no questions asked w/ only a $25 loss...

    Correct.

    The change of the model name on the side of the receiver ("Mirage S") came shortly after the trip button was moved to the right side, and after the Type-4 iron introduction.

    So it should be a full-on type 4, but they never made a Mirage top-single, so it's a build-up. Get some pics first.

    Regards, GAP

    Figured it was probably a put-together gun, not really that big a deal for me since it'll be torn down again if I buy it (since I'd only have a use for receiver/iron/trigger).

    The difference of a type 3 and and type 4 is the fore end iron. Tke the Barrel off the type 3 it has screws holding the fore end wood on through the top of the iron like most guns. On a type 4 if you take the foreend off and you are looking at it from behind there are 2 allen screws holding the wood to the fore end and iron and you can see that without taking the barrel off just by looking at the back of the iron.
