    Bought a TM1 and love it. Being that TM1's parts are getting scarce, what do you recommend to stock up with just in case something breaks.

    thanks

    buy another TM-1.... then the parts are all easily organized and you won't lose them ! (that's what I did, because they are not making any more TM-1's)

    Giacomo Sporting has all the TM1 parts you will need. Perazzi still makes the TM parts for them.

    You could buy a guide rod that goes to your hammer and a hammer spring. Disconnect your ejector to make it an extractor. Buy an extra firing pin, never dry fire you gun and you will be just fine.

    Begin with a tuned gun. Giacamo, Braker, Crrenwelge, and others can bgin your shooting career with a TM1 and you can expect it to last thruout the season. I shoot a lot and that equals 5000 a year out of a single bbl Perazzi as does my son-in-law with his TM1. All we do is occasionlly watch the spring tension and usually change it once a year. Your Perazzi will not break. Just an annual check and a hammer spring and you will shoot trouble free.

    If you plan on shooting 10 thou a year, then I have a diffeent answer for you. But as a likely casual and ATA shooter, just a wary eye on the parts and youare good to go.

    And there is always parts onthe ATA trap range if something does let go. Unlikely tho.

    There is no shortage of TM parts.

    I bought my current one 3 years ago. Nothing has broken except a firing pin in '09, which I replaced and a leaf hammer spring at the grand last year. I finished the event with a back-up trigger and Giacomo's replaced the spring in about 3 minutes. Those are the weakest points on a TM-1 in my experience.
