    SOLD. THANKS TO ALL FOR THE INPUT AND HELP. Marc

    I have for sale a nice Ithica Import TM-1 (which I was told could be a TMS). Serial# 45XX. Specs: 34" factory choke tube 18.5 barrel (.730 bore), 4 perazzi chokes # 4, 6, 8, 10. Restrictions of .021, .028, .036, .045. Seitz style porting. Pull trigger. Monte Carlo stock with two way adjustable comb (up & down only). LOP 14 3/8 with the 1" pad.

    Gun has been professionally gone through and fitted with new firing pin, springs, and locking lug. Gun locks tightly with the lever WAAAYYY RIGHT OF CENTER. No slop when opened either. Nice trigger pull-est 2.5 to 3 lb. All finishes are original. Blueing is nice showing wear thru to the bottom of foreiron and very back of trigger guard. Metal shows less than normal wear. Foregrip is in very nice original finish with good checkering and minimal handling marks. Stock has a two way adjustable comb. Stock appears to have been overtightened too many times as it is showing minor stress fractures at the top and bottom tangs. Stock is still very solid with several small handling marks, none severe. This gun is ready for many more years of service. Case is included.

    PRICE: $1750.00 plus actual shipping cost.

    If interested please contact me at the above email or PM only.

    Thanks, Marc

    Thanks guys. This gun looks as good or better in person as it does in pictures. Mechanically as good as you will find. And all for about $6000 less than a new TM9. Is my price too low or is Perazzi out of their minds? Marc

    Is this a TMS or a TM-1? If it's a TMS it will be stamped with that designation on the receiver.

    Rastoff,

    Receiver is marked TM-1. From all appearances it seems the same as every (only a few) TM-S models I have seen. All have the same striped receiver and factory screw in chokes, although I saw one that had the receiver done so that the stripes were the same blueing as on the rest of receiver. It may have been redone. Could it be that it was renamed TM-S after Winchester became the importer? That would have been very near to the time this gun was manufactured.

    Thanks, Marc

    As I understand it, the only difference between a TMS and a TM-1 is the TMS came with factory choke tubes and the TM-1 had a fixed choke. I've seen both with the striped receiver and without.

    My TMS was a 1980 edition and was imported by Perazzi. This is older because it's an Ithaca import. Still a Perazzi regardless of who imported it.

    Do the serial numbers match? Is it possible that the barrel was swapped out at one time? This is not an uncommon occurrence with the TM series of guns. From the pics, it has the right chokes. Those are Perazzi chokes so, I assume it was threaded for chokes at Perazzi.

    For the record it's a beautiful gun. I'm no Perazzi expert, I'm just curious.

    Rastoff,

    Barrel, receiver, and foriron all have identical ser#. Gun was bought new with the factory chokes. Not an expert historian here when it comes to Perazzi. I have owned, shot, and loved several different perazzi's, my first being a TM-1 back in 1972. One of my TM-1's was the first in the country to be fitted with a second barrel. I had that barrel choked for singles by Herb Orre. Believe it or not, that barrel without the choke work ended up costing me more than the price of the original gun, and the gun was only little more than a year old. As I remember it, I harassed Ithica for a couple of years to get me an extra barrel. Once they did, I sent the gun (my second TM-1) to Ithica and one of the factory people working there did the fitting. I believe it may have been Giacomo. It was about 1973 or 74, possibly as late as 1975. I had very special Anton wood made for that gun, it was a beauty. Just another of the many I let get away.

    FYI...ALL TM1 "Special"s had a P4 trigger and normal blued receiver. This gun has neither. If it has factory choke tubes the normal designation would be TMS. This gun's receiver could have been stamped TM1 or TMS but it is not a "Special". Rick ~~~Texas

    Rick, Originally I was calling this a TM-1 or perhaps a TMS. Based on info I received from another TS member I changed the description to read "SPECIAL?". This gun has the factory screw in chokes. I will change it back to (TMS?).

    Thanks for the help, Marc

    Just call it whatever perazzi stamped on the receiver and you will be correct.

    Marc,

    If I am not mistaken, your Perazzi is one of the last Ithaca Imports. It was made around 1976 for the Montreal Olympics. It came with factory choke tubes. It is a "special" gun because of the striped receiver, but it does not have the gold adjustable trigger that came on the TM1-Special.

    Winchester began importing the Perazzis around 1977. The Winchester TMS model
    came with factory choke tubes, a tapered rib and the more desireable slim forearm. My Winchester TMS is not ported and does not have an adjustable trigger, but there is in fact a small stamp on the inside of the receiver on the left hand side. The next to last picture you posted on your thread looks as though your receiver is stamped TM1, but it's not real clear under magnification. You can check to verify.

    Therefore, I believe ~Rick~ is correct. You have a special and desireable Ithaca import Perazzi TM1.

    Smok'n Joe

    I will wait to hear from Steve W. to confirm but I am not aware of Perazzi doing "factory porting". Rick ~~~Texas
