    WHAT

    What is the difference between a Type 3 and a Type 4 Perazzi MX8? Can a Type 3 be "updated" to a Type 4 and approximately what would that cost?

    Type 3 and type 4 forends are not interchangeable..lugs under barrels are different shape. May be other differences I am not aware of like lack of parts interchangeability...top lever, locking block etc.....BUD

    The lug on a Type 3 can be replaced w/ a Type 4 lug and the barrels used on a type 4 gun.

    Pat Laib does a very affordable update to your Type III forend that prevents
    loosening and therefor cracking.

    To update a type 3 gun to type 4 would require you change the lug, reblue the barrels, and acquire a new forend iron. The cost would be the better part of a grand.

    Birdog,, You don't need to change from type 3 to four and spend all that $$$$. What you do need to do is have a gunsmith drill the back of the forearm iron and install 2" draw screws like Kolar has or type 4 perazzi but using wood screws instead of a machine screw. This will stop the forearm from gravitating forward and cracking the wood! It works! Good luck! Phil Simms Prosoft Recoil Systems
