    I am considering purchasing another set of barrels for my Perazzi, but didn't know the average cost to fit them.
    In addition, are the new barrels fitted to the receiver so that that the receiver and orginal barrels are left untouched?

    Kerry Allor just fitted an MX2L barrel set to my MX2000 and they are perfect and my other two barrels still fit also. The top latch looks perfect, water table perfect - can't ask for anything better in my mind. That work was 300. I Am very happy.

    The receiver is always the "master". Barrels are always fitted to the receiver. Costs vary widely with the amount of work needed. Had a set of older barrels recently fitted to a nearly new reciever. Had to have a type 4 lug welded on the barrel and some addition work on the monobloc. These cost me $300 with Dan @ Giacomo Sporting. I'd recommend him any day.

    Flabigpapa & Richard all have good experience and advice for your project.

    Phillip at Phillips Gunsmithing fitted a set for me as well as a lot of other work. His work is great fees are reasonable and turn around time is fast.

    $300 was the price quoted at Perazzi USA for a barrel fitting to include any adjustments needed to ensure the barrel worked with my existing combo. They said Lucio would do it in about 3 hours. I am sure if it was more complicated, like changing the forearm lug, then it would take longer, and possibly be more expensive. But fitting a similar era barrel to a receiver was a very straight forward deal for them.

    After reading one of MIA's threads about trying the aluminum locking block from Marcello, I would also use Doug Braker as he seemed exceptionally detail oriented.

    LUcio estimated 500 if shipped to California + return shipping. He'll do it cheaper if you take it to him at gun events.

    Hardcsh, I have had three different barrel sets fit to my MX-2000 receiver. None were a problem, because the receiver is the newer type with 6 digits in the serial number. I'm told 6 digits is the key; however, I only have experience with serial numbers for receivers and barrels higher than 126000.

    I bought an O/U barrel set from Giacomo and he fit them to my receiver on the spot. He had to file a touch off of the forearm lug and off the ejector rods to time them. Everything else was perfect.

    Later, I bought a used MX-10RS and decided to fit those barrels to my existing receiver. The fit was perfect. Even the forearm lug was the correct length for my forearm. The only thing off was the ejector timing. I took the ejector rods from the MX-10RS and put them in my receiver. Perfect timing.

    If your receiver is the newer type, it is unlikely you will have to spend a lot of money to have the barrels fit.

    Daddiooo - welding a lug on the barrel is a near certain way to loosen the side ribs (Best Case) and equally chancy to change POI. Have you checked that set after the work? The ribs may not have been completely screwed up but the barrels are near certainly warped.

    Lucio won't change the location of a lug for just that reason. He will find a a forend to match for you (i.e get a Type 3 forend to match someone's purchased Type 3 barrel so that (hopefully) it will match a Type 4 receiver.

    I have been around Perazzi barrels for 46 years as a shooter and swapper - Do not believe anybody in the US is qualified (specifically Giacomo, Merrington, Briley, Baker, etc, etc)to re-regulate Perazzi barrels once the side ribs come loose or the inevitable warping of the barrels when the lower lug position is altered.

    Hopefully you came out ok.
