    Please explain the difference in a TM1 with the stripes on the receiver and the TM1 blue receiver, which is older? Any other deference in them?

    The stripped receiver is older. It is the sister gun to the O/U MT-6, which was the gun built for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. The stripped TM-1 was referred to as a Comp 4, TM-4, etc. Basically the same gun. Great SBT guns I might add.

    TM-4 usually seen with screw chokes, came out later than the TM-1, which was introduced in 1969. First ones had V-springs, coil springs in most.

    Ithaca Comp V, Winchester TMS. Not older or newer; actually in between. 75 to 80. Choke tube equipped.

    The only difference is the stripes.

    The "TM1 with Stripes" is sometimes referred to as a TM4, but officially listed as the COMPETITION IV. It was the last of the Ithaca Imports and came with OEM TYPE 1 choke tubes. There was also a COMP I model that was a fixed choke TM1 (see bottom of Perazzi brochure).

    The TMS was a Winchester Import Perazzi SBT. The Ithaca Import and Winchester Import were not manufactured or imported simultaneously. The Ithaca import preceeded the Winchester import and as Euro Joe stated above, the original blue receiver Perazzi TM1 (also an Ithaca Import) was introduced in 1969, long before the introduction of the Competition IV.

    There are differences between the original TM1, the Competition IV and the TMS, such as the introduction of the coil spring trigger which replaced the original leaf spring trigger. The diameter of the locking lever is larger in the early Ithaca TM1s and will not fit in later models. There are two different size forearm irons and three different forearm wood styles. Some of the Winchester imports (TM1 and/or TMS models) feature the desireable TAPERED RIB like those found on the Perazzi USA Import TM1 Specials some of which came with the P-4 adjustable trigger.

    Lots of differences, and by the way, barrels, receivers, forearm iron, parts, butt stocks and forearms are NOT ALWAYS interchangeable!!!
