    I bought an mx8 stock on this forum thinking it would fit on my mx6. I assumed this would work because I have swapped stocks from an mx3 to an mx8 before. I am now thinking you can go one way, but not the other. Am I right?

    Is it possible to have my mx8 stock inletted to fit my mx6? If so, who would you recommend?

    thanks,

    If your MX-8 stock is an older one, the top right side has different inlet, you can cut it yourself by comparing it to a newer stock.

    See picture of the un-cut & cut:

    One on the left has been cut, one on the right has a line showing where to cut.

    Considering the price of Perazzi shotgun, used stocks are relatively inexpensive, you can do it yourself.

    Thanks for your pictures. I should have done a little more investigation rather than just head for the keyboard. Your are right about the notch, but it appears there is also another 3/8 inch slot that must be cut. I should be up to it, I'll get some inletting black and go slow.

    I'm not intimidated fitting stocks on bean and weanie guns, but on P guns everything, including mistakes are expensive.

    By the way, I live in Iowa.

    FYI - even if you have the correct inletting in a 'new' stock - do not ever just slip it on and tighten it up o your action.

    The first thing I do is slip some inletting black on the top and bottom tangs and CAREFULLY tighten the stock while looking at the tang ease into the inletting.

    Remove the contact points carefully - repeat until seated with no stress visible in the 9 o'clock to six to 3 o'clock range on the back of the tangs. I also black the connecting 'post' between top and bottom tang to look for contact inside the stock. Then I look at the face of the stock on the last couple of passes on the tang.

    I haven't cracked one in twenty years
