    The TM3 is not for sale, I'm trying to get any and all info. I would like to know what the proper time period case would be, that I would be interested in buying. Any one know who I might contact at Perazzi. I e-mailed Hdqtrs but received no answer. Talked to Euro-Joe and he could not find anything in his old brochures. One would think if it were a special run there would be some info.

    If you cannot find anyone here who can provide the information you want, call Perazzi in Italy. I did that a couple of times a number of years ago and they were very helpful. +39 030 2696001 is their phone number. (Keep in mind the time differential.)

    Mine is 34" and has a monte carlo stock.
    Do you have the original case? I would like to know what it looks like and color.

    I just may do that. Do I need an Italian interpreter?

    How does a TM-3 differ from a TM-1?

    Jim,

    You will not need an interpreter; at least I didn't when I talked to Mr. Perazzai. He had an interpreter. Perazzi sells a lot of guns to Americans and many Perazzi employees speak both English and Italian.

    I just talked to Al Kondak from Perazzi Ca. I told him I had a TM3, He explained it is a 1973 gun,

    It is a TM1 with SC3 engraving, a special order, It still is an option on a TM9. It was not a special run, just an option upgrade.

    Thanks for everyones help.

    Jim
