    I was wondering if someone could help me with a wood grade question on my Perazzi MX8. The gun was sold by Giacomo new in 2005 with standard grade wood. I do not know how Perazze grades their wood, but everyone that sees the gun comments on the wood. Any help would be great.

    I would say thats much nicer than typical Perazzi apple-crate std grade wood.

    Nice wood, especially it didn't cost you extra. A factory true SC3 & SCO wood upgrade would be in the thousands.

    The reason it didn't make it to SC3 grade is because it wasn't cut right (or just bad luck for them and in this case, good luck for you).

    Perazzi wood seems to get better over the past years. And likely they just did not have old strate grain avail when it came time to stock your gun. This was always true with Remington as some had nice wood and it did not seem congruous with the quality of the gun. I believe the fine wood producers are common enough and selling their stuff as they can and the better stuff builds up in inventory and must be moved.

    Is it more than that? I do not know. But the wood gets better.

    "The gun was sold by Giacomo new in 2005 with standard grade wood."


    Giacomo sells entry level grade guns with an "upgrade" in wood, usually at the SC2 grade. So your gun might have been sold with SC2 wood. Sometimes the Perazzi SC2 grade wood still looks like crap but other times they have some nicely figured SC2 wood. I wouldn't be surprised if your gun was sold with SC2 grade.

    Perazzis standard grade wood is somewhere around knotty pallet with splinters.

    I've got one of those back scratchers from Cracker Barrel that's a better grade of wood than Perazzis standard issue.

    What you have there is outstanding! Apparently somebody at Perazzi goofed when that one went out the door.
