    Hi,
    I was wondering if i could get some opinions either good or bad on the Perazzi MX2005,combo set or just the unsingle, I currently shoot a MX2000 unsingle and a MX2000RS combo, I was thinking of getting a 2005 but was wondering about that very high rib, I shoot the 2000's well and like them alot, Any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks Richie

    I have had the MX2000 also that I shot well. I just bought a 2005 that I think will become my best shooter yet. It helps you keep your head up for a better site on the target. Just my two cents worth. Bill

    It helps keep the head up and it points better than any gun I have owned

    I bought one(unsingle) after seeing several of the old guys 75+ at the Amarillo Gun Club shoot them well. I respect the wisdom of my elders so I bought one and my shooting notably improved and continues to improve. Lewis

    I've had one for the better part of a year and have shot the gun very well. Make sure that the lop is good for you, set it up and put away the adjustment tools. I don't know about the others, but there is a real temptation to adjust, re-adjust and then do it again. I also know one owner who sold his after having trouble with canting the gun.

    Go for the combo and you won't regret the purchase. The MX2005 is one hell of a gun. Only downside is the butt ugly wood you will get for you $12,500.

    Yes, I too wish I had bought the combo. The o/u barrel set is $4500.00 if you can find and fitting another $500.00 or so. Like Chip says, you will regret later if you don't. Lewis

    The only thing the 2005 does is lower the bore relative to your cheek. That means it recoils more straight back and less upward. As far as keeping your head up, phooey. You can do exactly the same thing with your 2000RS by adding an adjustable butt plate. Just move it lower.

    Personally, I think the real decider is the O/U barrel. If you think your RS O/U barrel's rib it to low, the 2005 O/U might be just the ticket for you. You'll have to buy another gun (or a stock at least) because you are not going to be switching between your RS unsingle barrel and a 2005 O/U barrel without making big adjustments.

    BTW, both examples I saw for sale at the Keystone Open had very nice wood- much, much nicer than what came on my 2000RS combo.

    I know a guy who can't hit the floor with one if he drops it.

    But I reckon it's the shooter...

    Is 5/8ths the actual difference in height between a mx2005 and mx2000?

    Does the weight of the tall rib on the MX2005 make it swing slower than an MX2000/10 or an MX2000RS? How is the MX2005 in doubles? I like to shoot fast. Thanks, Bob
