    I was wondering if anyone knew of a website where you could go to look up when a Perazzi was made according to the model and serial number.

    Ine has the "PSF" mark, and the one to the left of the PSF.

    It also has "FINITO" with a star above it like the psf stars in the picture.

    and next to FINITO it is stamped XXV.

    The gun is an MX-8 that is stamped Ithaca Gun Company - NEW YORK

    Does this give enough info as to the year of production? Or is there somewhere else I need to look?

    Thanks,

    Mr. Mark

    May I suggest: Get the Lippard book on Perrazi. Years ago, the late Wendell Schroll told me there were some errors in that book, but the numbering system and dates etc. are likely very accurate.

    serial number starts 31xxx, so below the one you mention.

    I'm new to perazzi, what is the difference in the type 2 and otherwise.

    What's the scoop on these guns?

    It has 29.5 inch barrels with step rib, fixed choke im and xf.

    Thanks for all the information,

    Mr. Mark

    Mr Mark in the future if you want to know when any italian gun was made look at my website and click on "Italian Gun Identification", you will see a chart with all the years codes.

    Can anyone tell me the year associated with the code "BM"? I would count backwards from BS, but that seemed too obvious!

    Thanks!

    Neal,

    BM should be 1999.

    Neal, yes, it's 1999.

    Counting backwards doesn't work well in this case, Italian proof mark skipped a few letters now and then. In this case of "B_" there're no "O", Q, R, between "BM" & "BS".

    If you think this is confusing, try the ser. # prefix letter on Rolex watches. :)
