    It is my understanding that if you purchase a NIB Perazzi that custom fitting of the stock to you is included in the purchase price.

    Wonder what percentage of new Perazzis are in fact custom fit to the original purchaser ?

    And if it is not high, given the original purchase price and the strong position that trap shooters take that gun fit is everything... Why don't they take the time to get their Perazzi custom fit ?

    Only partly true and I don't know if it still is. When you buy a NEW Perazzi AT THE GRAND AMERICAN TRAPSHOOTING TOURNAMENT.

    So if I order a NIB Perazzi from an advertising Perazzi retail dealer and travel to either his location or to Perazzi USA in California, they don't custom fit me as part of the retail price ?

    I bought an MX 2000/3 skeet gun at the 2011 NSSA World Shoot and was fit by Lucio Sosta and my dealer, John Herkowitz with Pacific Sporting Arms, both of Azusa, CA. 5 months later my gun arrived. Shot my best skeet scores ever in 20+ years of skeet shooting this year with this gun. Great fit/recoil is managed well and no recoil reduction in this gun whatsoever. Fits that good! I highly recommend this option, if you can stand to wait for your gun to be made. W

    It's because most dopes gotta have it NOW.....they will buy an off the rack gun NOW....chop it up with adjustable bullshit.....just so they can have it NOW.

    Custom stocks at purchase have always been available from Ljutic.....and from Perazzi, a long time too.

    You just have to be willing to wait awhile. In the case of Ljutic, maybe 6 weeks.

    Yes, if you order a new gun, it can be fitted to you and the stock custom made. There is no charge from an authorized dealer. Most people aren't willing to wait a couple months for delivery and just buy a gun off the shelf from the dealers inventory. The other side of the equation is that dealers that discount their guns below retail generally sell you what they have and are not likely to offer this service.

    Keep in mind that a brand new SC2 grade stock/forend ordered to your specifications runs around $2000-$2500. So if you can buy a new gun at a discounted price that is at least $2500 below the custom ordered gun, then you can still come out ahead.

    Are they building you a demo stock with bondo that you can go shoot for a couple months and send back to have duplicated (like Wenig or Devault), or are they using a try-stock to get your measurements, without you ever actually test firing the gun/stock at those measurements before your final wood is cut? The former is greatly preferable to the latter.

    I personally would never have a custom stock made that didn't have a demo stock originally, that I could shoot a tweak for a few months before I had the final one cut.

    Either way, if possible, you're probably better off buying the gun without wood if possible, and having Wenig/Devault/Hillmer (in no particular order) make you a custom stock. They understand modern stockfitting techniques, and understand american style stock design and requirements. Devault would be my first choice, as our thoughts on stock design and fit most closely match.

    The only time I bought a new Perazzi was in 1984 and before they offered adjustable combs. The dealer had many stocks available and I picked out one with so called European numbers. It had a bit of cast/off at the comb and twist at the toe and the highest fixed comb Monte Carlo style available at the time. The American stock numbers were basically neutral. I still do not own a gun with an adjustable comb but I do use a Cheekeez pad to get a soft comb and the right drop for me. I have an average build (for a trapshooter).

    If I read the Perazzi catalog and retail price list correctly...

    And extra buttstock has a retail price of about $1,000.

    If so, could one be measured for the custom stock and have Perazzi make it while you shoot the gun using the standard factory stock ?

    Might have one with an adjustable-comb.

    Then when the custom dimensioned stock is ready, either keep the standard stock or sell it for some recovery of its initial price.

    The $1000 price is for a base level, non-adjustable stock. Add a few bucks for an adjustable comb, and a few more bucks for nice wood grain, then of course the forend has to have comparable grain to the stock..you end up at the $2500 number that I quoted above. But yes, you are exactly correct.

    Of course the main reason for adjustable junk is to compensate for physical changes, face shape, shoulder, and weight. And of course shooting style. Over time all these things change and the adjustable junk keeps the gun shooting as expected. The real challenge with the adjustable stuff is to keep from adjusting it between every bad day at the range.

    Nutso, in my opinion if a trap gun don't have the adjustable junk on it it is "JUNK"

    probably the best thing to do is to use the measurement of the gun you are using. If you are using that gun at what you would consider as very well then regardless of what make it is the measurement that are the essential items not the brand of gun
