    I'm thinking of buying a Perazzi unsingle 33 1/2" Trap barrel with combo case with a second generation IM choke tube . This barrel is in great condition & the combo case is in good shape as well. This barrel is from a MT6. I was told it is a square bottom barrel that will fit Perazzi guns with the same square bottom. I have an MX8 and from the research I've done, this MT6 barrel is supposed to fit on my MX8. I have two questions; 1) Will this barrel in fact fit my MX8; 2) I can pick up the barrel and case for $750; is this a good buy? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    IIRC correctly, you'd need to have the MT forend lug removed, and the correct Type MX lug brazed on.

    Thanks for the reply. From what I've read, if the barrel has the square bottom block it'll fit. Just to confirm; I will still have to have a new MX lug put on it?

    I compared the bottom of the barrel pics to my MX8 barrel and they look exactly the same?

    Late MT-6 bbls. had type 4 lugs. You may have gotten lucky! Probably still need to be fit properly by a gunsmith.

    I could be wrong, but I've seen a MT6 before that had been advertised as having its lug changed to fit a MX8. The forend latch design was totally different on the MT6. The barrel should fit your receiver, but whether or not the forend fits the barrel might be another story.

    Okay, so the barrel might fit but I may possible need an MT6 forearm; is that right? How about the price; is that a good price ($750)?

    I just looked at the forearm latch picture on the MT6 barrel and it does look different from my MX8 so, I guess this means I would need an MT6 forearm.

    I found a new MT6 forearm but no iron; would anyone happen to know where I could get an MT6 forearm iron?

    We patterned a friend's MT6 combo and the Unsingle barrel shot 50/50 dead flat POI where the O/U barrel shot a more normal 60/40. He couldn't hit much with that Unsingle barrel.

    I would think the chance of finding a MT6 iron are slim to none, since the gun has been out of production for over 30 years now. Price seems good, but I think for the amt of extra $ you'll need to dump into it to get it going, you'd be better off w/ a correct MX8 barrel from the get go.
