    We seldom get a chance to show the metal work side of the company, but here are a few photos of an old Perazzi that was a bucket of rust when we got it in over the winter. The owner had the wood to put on the gun and we did the new Adjustable Rib System, reblued the barrel,titanimum coated the receiver and forend iron. The cost to do the complete job as you see it was under $ 2,000.00 Not bad to restore a good gun and cheaper than buying new. Thank you for looking and we hope you enjoy the photos.

    Dennis, I like the ti coating, looks great. Who's idea was that, you or your customers' ? You usually see a nickel or teflon coating when receiver is in need of refinishing, if bluing is not an option. Beautiful work all around !!! ( as usual !!!! )...............Rob G.

    Hey Rob,

    It was our suggestion for the Gold Nitride finish then we also did the Black ALTiN finsh on the opening lever,saftey latch and forend iron to provide the contrast. On the barrel lugs that are hidden we jeweled the lug areas to give a different look than what is standrad. Thank you,

    Dennis

    Dennis,
    Is that a tapered rib and how is it adjustable? Looks like a perfect alternative to purchasing a TM-9 or TM-9X.

    Ed Yanchok

    also, what is the rib made of?

    This makes a lot of sense to me. I love fixing up older guns and this is one of the best examples of a high-tech trap gun from a beater I have ever seen!

    1. You can find decent TM1's out there with Wilkinson, Eyster, or Allor barrel work for 1600 to 1800 bucks.

    2. Have Dennis do his magic to the gun and build you a stock for say $3500 - $4000 or so and you have a great looking super shooter for $5-6000. Not bad considering the cost of good single barrels today.

    Bob

    Dennis,
    What would it cost to do the same finish to a k80 reciever that is currently factory nickled? With no rib work.
