This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    What is the price going to be on something like this? It's beautiful.... And I don't really go nuts for engraving.

    Marcello my dear friend, You really know me well. :) That's much prettier than factory engraving. Can't wait to hold it in my hand, we'll talk.

    BTW, your vest got me couple 50 straights since summer. And your watch kept me on time at the shoots. It also act like a night light on my desk. As for the red hat, it's a little too "red" for me, my wife is wearing it when we go sailing.

    Steve. Did I know you were a "sailor"?

    I raced sailboats (scows and dingys) for 10 years. That is how I got my bunged up fingers and tricky shoulders. Tough sport.

    Let's go off topic a bit. I'll remove this later.

    Jack, we sail in the weekends, mostly after shooting if there's no race. I sometimes miss a shoot because of it, but not always.

    We sail on a 38' race boat, that needs at least 8 well trained crew to fully utilize it's potential, but we usually go very casual with couple girls onboard just to hold some lines for us. Cheese & wine were always served, Italian beer occasionally:

    Dolphins always beat us.

    Steve - Creative Arts is factory engraving.... they engrave all the bullino factory Perazzi.... I thought Creative Arts was in Virginia, USA and not Brescia Italy.

    very nice gun decimamas 54, I like your left handed stock and forearm too, and would buy it if it was an MX12 and not an MX8

    Creative Art of Gardone Val Trompia engraved most of current Perazzis, but they are not Perazzi in-house engraver. They are an engraving company and a school for engraver.

    The price Perazzi is paying Creative Art for their "factory engravings" will not get you anywhere near Marcello's guns.

    I own factory side plate guns in SCO & Extra grades, and I refuse to put them next to Marcello's guns. :)

    .... the point is that this IS a factory engraved gun Stave W, and that matters, you are wrong! Did the post office ever find yur MX8?

    add-on artists can deep chisel scroll and animals till the trigger springs show through and it is still less desireable than a "factory" engraved gun.

    You pay $10's of thousands for after-market engraving and you need to use the gun as a pillow in your casket. Nice factory engraved Perazzi Marcello.

    No, this is Marcello's personal commissioned engravings by Creative Art. Which the principles are his buddy. To this day, Perazzi has never offered any engravings in this level or pattern.

    Yes, P.O. found my MX-8 after a week of searching , I post the updates on my original thread. Thank you for asking.

    Here's some pictures of a Perazzi MX-8 project that Marcello is working on for me right now. He found on older Type 4 gun in Italy, bought it for me, and has just completed the process of polishing the receiver and parts to get everything ready for the engraver. It looks beautiful, even without the engraving! A day or two ago, Marcello delivered the gun to Creative Art in Gardone Val Trompia for an "Extra" grade engraving job. They'll finish some time this Summer and then the gun goes to a good stocker that Marcello knows in Italy. The finished gun will then make the trip to me in Colorado sometime this Fall. This project is a lot of fun, the only hard part is being patient.

    Steve W introduced me to Marcello a couple of years ago; what a great guy and he certainly knows his way around a Perazzi. John

    John, you are living one of my dreams! :)

    Perhaps Marcello could share more pictures?
