    Hey guys---appreciate any info on a ITHACA PERAZZI I just picked up.
    It has a M/C stock--single nonselective trigger?--32" barrels w/ fixed chokes and stepped rib--lever is in the center---has great case colors--no cracks or serious dings. Barrel is marked ithaca--crafted buy perazzi. The party I got it from thought it was a "comp one".. As there isn't any model type marked on the gun'I looked in an older blue book --however I couldn't find an appropiate reference.
    Just wondering what moel it is and approximate value.

    Thanks for taking the time to look at this post.

    Bob

    I wouldn't know the value, but it looks like an MX-5. Do some searches for Ithaca o/u shotguns instead of Perazzi.

    Bob, your gun is a Comp.1 $2,800-3,200 in that condition, push the trigger safety fully forward and then pull down on the trigger guard. When installing the trigger repeat step one, make sure hammers are in the fired position when installing.

    It's from the late '60s ('68), imported by Ithaca in the end of the '60s or beginning of the '70s. The designated name was Competition 1. You may find SC1 (SC1T) stamped on the fence. Your gun is most likely the very first year type II.

    Comp 1 were imported in trap and skeet models. they have the same skeleton detachable trigger group like MX-8 & Mirage from the same era.

    Like TOOLMAKER 251 stated, push the safety lever fully forward to pull out the trigger group.

    Frank Hoppe shot a Perazzi Comp 1 for doubles most of his shooting career. Broke lots of 100's with that gun. Looks like the factory case hardened coloring is in excellent condition which means it has been taken care of and most likely in very good condition. Good Find!!! Should last you a lifetime...

    Make sure hammers are released to store gun. Do not leave cocked in gun.


    Normal procedure is to disassemble gun, remove trigger from actioon, release each hammer into your hand, rag, ect, then reinert back into receiver.

    Toolmaker has it right. Typical Comp. I. Great shooter. Bunker guys should like it..they usually shot pretty flat.

    They made the trigger drop out to easily change springs.

    Gentlemen

    Thank you all for your replys.
    I'm not a trap shooter, so I really appreciate your input on a subject foreign to me.
    I test fired the gun today and it worked well--who da thot!!

    And yes, I actually got the trigger out and back in with no damage to me or the gun.

    regards and thanks again

    Bob

    More information for you this is a type 2 gun. These are great guns but don't break the top lever because it might not be replaceable.
