    Great news! The long awaited TM1 parts that so many of you have requested be made for your Perazzi's are here. UPS delivered them this morning, Saturday.

    Marcello in Italy, GM Gun Parts, has, at the request of the America TM1 owners, graciously made or had made many obsolete and no longer available parts, AND he was extremely generous in their pricing.

    Here's what I received this morning. This shipment is a very limited, so if you need something, don't drag your feet in ordering. I will NOT hold because I have just too many folks waiting for this stuff.

    I do NOT know when succeeding shipments will arrive.

    Thanks.

    Hey Whiz,
    What's that T handled tool. I assume that it's to install/remove the button latch container. With these new units, will we need this tool or can we still use the stock wrench?

    This will boost the already hot TM resell value.

    Ed: Marcello says that he designed it to accommodate your stock tool, but he's included his with the sale. More importantly. it is a ONE-OIECE tube and not silver soldered together.

    Thanks, Steve. Yes, when Marcello called last week, he asked me "So, what can we now make for the TM's? I want to be the go-to guy for all the TM stuff."

    Looks like he wants to control that niche.

    The biggest concern for buying a TM these days is parts availability, it's been 40 years since it came out, and has been discontinued for 20, being a trap gun means heavy usage with heavy loads, that certainly doesn't help to preserve them.

    You guys made a considerable boost to the TM market.

    Marcello is not going to make forearm iron.

    Way too costly to set up for this for him.

    whiz,

    I'm not a P/W guy or a Perazzi guy (I'm too poor. Lol), but you sure do a fine job of taking care of all the shooters that do. I just want to tip my hat to you for all that you do for the shooters out there!

    Thaks for the "Thanks," SS.

    I lay in best at night thinking at my age do I really want to continue to do this. I am retired, but this has become another committment, something I told myself I was not going to do when I first retired.

    HAP: No, expecting them any day, but Marcello told me he only sent a small sample. Not sure why.
