    Love this gun! I believe it is a one of a kind Perazzi TMX Oro, hand signed by Galeazzi. Classic Masterpiece. Enjoy.

    What would be an estimate be for a cost on a gun like this? Or is it just priceless.

    I was told by Perazzi of CA.; to "replace it" (engraving NOT by Galeazzi ) would be $33k based on a TM9X. That said, what is the value of a Galeazzi engraving now that he has passed on...I truly don't know? I know there are 'Perazziphiles' on TS that maybe could weigh in?

    Can't say much about a TM series model, I only know if subject engravings were on a SCO/O MX-8 based model , it'll be in the $15,000-$22,000 price range, like others w Galeazzi engraved. Used Retail.

    Had one at Ivory Beads in Los Angeles, w 29.5" O/U @$19,500

    From what I have been told, this was engraved by the master himself, not an apprentice etc. A gun dealer I know said it is also featured in a book; Perazzi Shotguns;by Karl C. Lippard. Cannot find a copy of the book though.

    His daughter is just as good as he was in my opinion. Here is my pigeon gun that was build and delivered just last year, these scenes look alive when this gun is in your hands. Signed "L. Galeazzi"

    Very nicely done and it's not often you see engraving featuring a woman's breasts and dog's balls at the same time.

    I always like the Gargoyle pattern but always thought it would look better if the Gargoyle were facing toward the muzzle.

    It's beautiful! Is it built with DB81 barrels?

    That engraving pattern is still offered by Perazzi. A guy I shoot with often just got one. I'm not sure who engraved it. They can run in the high 30's

    DapTrap, that is a beautiful gun and hard to put a value on that, it would be a gun you would always regret if you part with it

    Bill, I agree with you, the Gargoyle should point towards the muzzle.

    here is mine that is signed and done by Badillini

    I wonder how many times the master engravers have done the same subject? Fabbri also offers the same scene on the Majestic.

    I do like the Gargoyle facing forward. I would love to know the meaning or symbolism to the rear facing Gargoyle. There must be a reason.

    Badillini's work is masterful indeed. I wonder how long it takes to actually do an engraving like that?
