    Got a great deal on an old Perazzi TM1 that has been shot and shot some more. She is pretty loose and the checkering has worn smooth on the stock. But she still shoots good. I am having it reblued and I bought a new stock for it. My question is what springs or other parts should I buy and keep on hand or replace in the gun. I am having it tightened up and the locking block rebuilt already.

    Thanks!

    Trigger spring....that's about all that breaks on occaision. Takes a few minutes to replace.

    Unless you are a good perazzi gun smith, send the gun to Giacomo, Whiz White or any of the guys lauded on this sight. These guys will make that gun tighter than new and give it 20 years more life. I have a 3 digit TM 1 that has over 200,000, it was rebuilt 2 years ago and it is still tighter than when I bought it new. It cost me $250.

    John,

    Who rebuilt your TM1 for $250? Whiz or Giacomo? I was also considering Doug Braker. I got such a steal on the gun I hate to sink a ton of cash into it. I have herd some horror stories of some high bills when sending off trap guns. Like at the Grand last year when Perazzi charged a guy $400 to replace a spring and give the gun a good cleaning and inspection.

    gncc600,

    My standard rebuild price is $250 plus just the retail cost of new springs. This rebuild includes rebuilding your existing locking bolt...$125(includes a complete clean & oil), and tightening the action....$125.

    Like I mention above, that's pretty much a complete mechanical rebuild...as good as new. Now, if for some reason someone has filed on the locking bolt bbl lugs, those would either need to be recut or in some severe cases, need to be welded and recut....$125.

    If you prefer a new locking bolt, the bolt would cost you $135, plus an additional $65 to fit it. Save the $75 by having the existing bolt rebuilt, and use it for the shipping costs.
