1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the earliest few "Special" came out with a fixed trigger location and had the "Special" in front of the TM1 and not behind it.

    Specials from Perazzi signaled the conversion from time honored machining techniques to CNC machining. I see little that convinces me that the machining is better, but the parts do seem to interchange better. Therein lies the proof. This all took place back around 1988.

    Stan Baker was a barrel smith back then as was Tom Seitz and Eyester. Others too but these 3 seemed to command the attention of shooters. My eyes tell me this gun has been shot little and safe-ed a lot.

    Gary. I even love the little filled drill holes on the left hand side of the stock. Gives the gun a patina and a story untold. I love that. Here was a shooter that wanted his gun to be right. Most would just live with it. But not this RH shooter. He wanted the holes on the proper side of the comb. Nice touch.

    It is not often you find a 23 year old gun in this condition. If someone wants a productive trap gun, this gun is a value.

    Jack,

    I thought the TM-1 "Specials" were factory choked. I see Perazzi TM-1 on the receiver but no, "Special". Or is it written "Special TM-1". Maybe you can elaborate, Jack. Nice gun either way. Jon

    Oh, you are RIGHT. I could not read it and assumed it said special. Well the only proof now would be the Europe mfgr code. 87 or prior would not be a Special. Likely this is jsut a 80s TM1.

    Still a nice gun and still worth the money

    Does the trigger serial number match the rest of the gun?
