Just like the title says, I am wondering if anyone out there shoots and MX7. If so what do you think of it. How does it compare to modern P-guns such as the MX12. Anyone have one for sale?? Thanks

Isn't that what Kim Rhodes shot to win all those Olympic medals before it was stolen?

MX-7 is the last model with round monobloc. Very similar to the MX-5, sharing the same plain side receiver and non-detachable trigger with barrel selector on top tang.

A good gun for the money. Round monobloc and coil spring like 680 and K-80.

BTW, Kim's old gun was a MX-12.

One of our best local trap shooters bought a Perazzi MX-7 as his first "trap gun" when they first came out.

It is still his only trap gun.

He wins a lot of trophies with it in all three -- Singles, Handicap, and Doubles.

.

This year, he had it serviced for the first time in 20+ years of use.

The factory service found nothing wrong and it didn't cost much to do.

He says the service didn't cause any harm and he is still winning trophies with it.

The last round monobloc gun WITHOUT a detachable trigger. The MX3 and MX6 have detachable triggers.

The above guns came with EITHER coils spring triggers or leaf triggers. My MX6 combo came with leaf springs and extrenally selectable trigger.

I've not see many, and I can't even think of one, coil spring MX3 or MX6 gun ever here at the shop.

my wife has been shooting her mx7 combo for approx 12 years and has loved it. She shoots approx 7-10,000 rounds per year. Just this past Grand she finally did decide to purchase a mx10 combo but would no way consider trading in the 7, for fear she may not like the 10 as well. Never broke a firing pin or coil trigger spring, but did routely have them replaced.

Like the Whiz - I have been shooting Perazzi's for a very long time dating back to Perazzi-Fabbri partnership. The reason I keep what I acquire is solely based on the POI for bottom and top barrels. Everything else relative to quality is a given and a high standard.

BTW - a plug for Jim White. I recently sent a set of SC3 trigers up to him for a swith on release sequence. The triggers are perfect break and pull. Thank you sir.

I bought an MX7 new in '94....shot it until 2 years ago when I bought a Blaser. Mine was Xfull in the top sinlge & mod/xfull on the O/u. Best I ever did with it was 96 from the 27 in caps using the top single. Served me very well for all those years. Had it gone through the same year I bought my Blaser & still carry it as a back-up gun. I have no complaints!
