    I just bought a very nice TM1 and as far as I can tell it was made in 1985. The serial number is 9XXX. My question is what was the last year of production for the TM1? I found a mark on the barrel that was a small rectangle with the letters AN in it. I think that means it was made in 1985 which would make it a Perazzi USA import. Is that correct? Thanks for any help.

    Yes according to the proof date your TM1 was proofed in 1985. They discontinued TM1 a few years before TMX. I got a chance to shoulder a new TM9 and a TM9X and the TM9 feels like a TM1 and the 9X feels like looking over the rib of my TMX.

    Correct, it's Perazzi USA (Rome, NY) import, TM1 were made till the mid '90s.
