    I purchased a very nice MT-6 several months ago. I really like the gun and am adjusting to it extremely well. A fellow shooter advised me that when closing the action; I should hold the action lever, close it and then release the lever. I have shot a Beretta for years and have always closed the action without touching the lever. Is the Perazzi different? I noted the pin that secures the action is on the very top of the receiver on the MT-6 whereas on the Beretta this pin is on the side of the inside face of the receiver. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Ed

    This just helps reduce the wear on the locking block and top lever.On the older TM 1`s you may have a hard time finding a top lever if you break it off.

    I don't know about reducing wear....but I do know that if the locking block is not solidly engaged, the gun will get loose faster......and, the earlier guns had a toplever shaft that is smaller in diameter than later guns....that's why you'll see long time Perazzi shooters hold the lever.....broken toplevers happened more often then. New style guns can be closed without holding the lever.

    Just be sure to tweak the lever after closing to make sure it's tightly closed.

    Luchio Sosta says hold the lever back. Good enough for me.

    I called Perazzi. They said to just let the gun close. No need to hold the lever.
