    Know little about Perazzi shotguns.

    Have a Perazzi MT6 which a Perazzi gunsmith has judged to be in excellent condition.

    What is the mechanical relationship between the MT6 and more recent Perazzi MX series trap guns ?

    Also have a TM1.

    How does it relate to more recent Perazzi SBT guns ?

    Can tell from pictures that newer guns have taller adjustable ribs as well as adjustable-combs added. The stock shapes have been changed a lot.

    But what about the internal mechanics of the actions and the quality of the barrels ?

    How have they changed since my guns were built ?

    Not because of their condition (which is excellent), but by virtue of their vintage and design... Are they more wall hangers than shooters ?

    Your Guns are Shooter's...Enjoy them..What's Old is New Again..Wait and See...
    Shoot well...Shoot Often, Bart

    Have been around long enough to see the low ribs go High and come back down only to go back up adjustable....Your pair of guns...Some will say..As Good as it Gets.

    The Mx series of Perazzis are one of the finest guns ever designed specifically for clay target shooting and not just an adapted design . Can't ever take that away from them. One of the best pointing guns ever.

    The Mt6 is ergonomically designed to mimic the Mx guns as shooters. They are a gun that was designed to give you the experience of the Mx guns with fewer design features (such as the drop out trigger) at a considerably lower price. Great guns.

    MS80, sea shell receiver version of MT6 (and same gun as MX12), was more expensive than MX8 when they were in production.

    When the MT6 was in production it's retail price was the same as a Mirage/MX8. Take a look at any old Shooter's Bible listing. I have never understood where the "intro" tag came from - it certainly didn't come from Perazzi.

    MX was designed for the Mexico City olympics in '68 ergo MX-8. The MT 6 was designed for the Montreal Olympics in '76 ergo MT-6. The inovation on the MT-6 was the first generation of factory choke tubes in a P gun. The drop out trigger was eliminated on the MT 6 along with side ribs on the O/U bbls. All MX series barrels can be easily fitted to the MT receiver. One of the major differences is that butt stocks are not interchangeable with the MX guns.

    Regardless of the "Shooters Bible" the Mts "actually" sold, retail, for about a grand less than the Mxs.

    MT6 is probably one of the best values out there in the used gun market.
