    Hi all

    I was out at the Livermore range today, and tried out a few different guns that were F/S...

    The Perazzi MX-2000 was a little heavy for me, but I found a Perazzi MX-16 that shot very well - after three rounds I was easily hitting all the targets from 16' and 20', without adjusting the comb.

    Gun is an MX-16 top single, factory adjustable comb - very good condition, comes with 5 briley chokes. Only issue is a small "bend" on the top rib, but it's pretty hard to see. Includes a brand new Americase and some spare springs for the firing pin & trigger.

    Owner is asking $4250, or $6250 with a set of O/U barrels - the barrels haven't been professionally fitted to the gun, so need some gunsmithing. Another important point is that the owner is a genuinely nice guy, and let me take my time trying out the gun, and put up with all my questions.

    Only negative seems to be no drop out trigger, so a spring replacement would be a little more difficult...

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the reply

    I know this is a dificult question, but does the $4250 seem in the right range for a gun in very good condition? I am new to the whole Perazzi pricing range so can't compare to an MX-14...
