    Could someone please tell me what the approximate weight of a Perazzi MX2000 might be?

    Thanks, John

    Thanks for the reply W&W.
    I'm thinking of buying one but it might be a little more weight than I want. I'm used to shooting my Browning bottom single at 8 lbs.11 oz. I shoot fast and I like a fast moveing gun.

    Wood density and barrel configuration mostly determinate the weight differences between two Perazzis.

    Shotgun balance has more to do with the speed of the gun than total weight.

    Olympic Trap shooters shoot very fast, their Perazzis were made to do so. The most popular barrel weight on a typical OT guns is around 1.55 kg. and the whole gun around 8.5 lb. Lots of ATA shooters consider this is too light, they prefer 1.65 kg. barrel on a 9 lb gun.

    My Perazzi pigeon guns has 1.43 kg. barrels, it moves faster than those crazy birds.

    Thanks Steve,
    I'll just have to find someone with a MX2000 and try it. I shot a MX15 a few years ago and would like to get back to a higher quality gun.

    Johnpic,

    For what it's worth, I will give you my opinion based on what you have stated. You said that you shot a MX15 at one time. I had a 34" MX15 with a .72 something bore. It was factory unaltered and had Factory screw-in chokes. I recently bought a MX10RS that has a factory unaltered .73 something bore with fixed Full choke. If there is any difference in the weight, I sure can not tell it. It swings the same as my MX15 did. My assumption would be if you like your old MX15, you will be happy with the way a "new" MX2000 feels.

    Thanks Matt,

    It looks like I might be spending some money.

    Yes, I did like the MX15. I got caught up in the mid single Kolar T/S craze when they first came out and had to have one. Never realy shot it well. Took a step backwards and I am now shooting a Browning cynergy bottom single. It's a good shooting gun but not the quality that I like.

    It's not just the weight that's important. Balance and feel is just as important.

    As Barry stated above, balance and feel are just as important. If you liked the feel of the MX15, I believe you will on a MX2000.

    I have owned the MX2000, MX10RS, MX2000RS and now have the MX2000/10. All my unsingle guns were within 1-2 oz. of each other. I could never tell a bit of difference in the swing dynamics nor the balance. All fixed chokes and MX2000RS with Wilkinson barrel work. Even after the barrel work, no difference. My MX2000/10 seems to move to the target faster, but it has a top single configured barrel. I would say shoot all of them before you buy. Even guns that weigh the same can feel different and move differently to the target. Hope this helps, Roy
