    A poor mans’ alternative to the Perazzi SR model. It is all just parts I picked up over the last 15 months or so. MX-3 Special receiver, P4 Trigger, MX-8 Skeet Barrels, Wenig Hi Rib style stock, and a Bridge Shoot rib.

    The rest of the project sort of got out of control but thank you to all who sold me these nice things (Steve, Rich, Gary, and Jack) and to GunDr for welding up and fitting three sets of barrels as well as updating the reciever and trigger group etc.

    Hauxfan - This is what I am going to find out - I first saw the SR models at the Grand a couple of years ago and wanted one - handling it, I felt my head was up and I could only see the bead - I liked it. I just did not want to spend 10 grand for what amounted to an MX-8 O/U. So I went a different path and ended up here.
