    Why are Mx-15 unsingles usually a little cheaper than say a Mx-2000 unsingle or a Mx-10 unsingle? I know Perazzi doesn't offer the 15 as a combo but they seem similar to the other two guns. Thanks for any info.

    Standard slab side receiver...Less Money to machine.

    The main and only difference is the shape of receiver.

    The standard MX series receivers are so call "seashell sculpted" it's a fairly expensive process, the MX-15 and other so call "entry level" models has plain side receivers, the term "entry level" is a relatively loose term, since MX-15 still carry a $10,597 MSRP.

    MX-15 was made to be the most cost effective model for ATA shooters. It has the max. (6 notches) adjustment range among all models. It's $2,300 less than 4 notch MX-10RS, and $4,000 less than 5 notch MX-2000 unsingle in 2010 MSRP. IMO a true bargain.

    Not to mention the "new" TM9X, a true single barrel gun (no capable to add O/U) is $1,600 more on MSRP than a MX-15.

    Less machine work on the receiver. Lesser wood on the standard grade. But that's all. It's a bargain compared to the other P-models. Plus it shoots higher right out of the box than all other Pguns. I've had mine for 10 years and still think it's a top performer.

    Right now, with the economy being so soft, there have been some really nice ones being sold here at fire sale prices. Good time to take advantage of the soft market.

    I really liked the look of the MX15L with the silver colored receiver. I had my std. MX15 plated with an advanced teflon/metallic plating. I had even more parts plated than the Perazzi does. Mine has the top lever, the trigger, the trigger frame and the forearm iron plated, as well. Now all the wear points are plated and I don't worry about wear or rust from my acidy hands.

    How difficult is it to fit a set of O/U barrels to the MX15 & make a combo? Are there any special problems since a combo isn't available from the factory?

    A simple barrel fit if you have a late model O/U barrel..

    All O/U with squared monobloc can be fitted to MX-15.

    Perazzi offer MX-15 in a relatively low price with max. adj. feature. Not intended to compete with their more expensive MX-10 or MX-10 RS combo. That's why their so called "entry level" MX-14 combo doesn't have adj. features. If you want everything in one package, it'll cost you.

    Steve, I've been a marketeer for a very long time. I think Perazzi's plan is flawed. If they marketed an MX15 combo there wouldn't be as strong a market for CG and open up a new niche for Blazer. Both Kreighoff and Perazzi screwed up, in my opinion.

    An MX15 combo would have been a much better approach than bringing back the TMtoomuch9's. Especially with the advent of the SCTP and the AIM programs. Italian vision is different than American vision, I guess.

    They also could sell a ton of O/U barrels to guys already using 15's. Maybe they're listening.

    Steve W. Would you give me the history of the TM10, please?

    TM10 was a TM1 with adj. rib. A very limited production model. Didn't do too well on the market. That's pretty much a TM9X with plain receiver.
