Perazzi DB81, . 34 in. brl., Seitz ported, back bored and choked, bore mics .749 choke mics .717 for .032.POI adjusted by Seitz to 80-20. Stock is 1 3/8 x 13/8 x 14 1/2 with adj comb in lowest position. Seitz adj comb with padded (soft) adj comb. Receiver rebuilt and reblued. Pull trigger. All nrs. match. $4200.00. Will consider offers. Gary E. Gasaway.

























Trap 2,Sovrapposto, & HMT, I misprinted first ad. Thinking of my first TM1 which was Ithaca import. This gun was Perazzi import. SN 57***.
Rick979 This gun wasn't stamped by Seitz, but when he did stamp read "C.C.Seitz"
Gyrine: Had the gun in Tuscon but didn't show or display it.
michmoe: Ajax is right. Tom was nickname, real name Charles C. Seitz.
BeBop: Not a counterfit copy, real thing. I had the work done myself.
Forgot poster's handle who asked if I "wondered" about responses, true, but I tried to do ad from memory, and you know what happens when CRS syndrome hits.
Thanks everyone for looking and commenting, and special thanks to CubanCigar for his offer of helping post pictures. GEG.

Gary... I also wonder about it. My DB-81 Combo is in the 55XXX serial number range, and, according to Perazzi USA, was one of the first ones to enter the country in 1981 or early 1982. It is definitly not an Ithaca import. It would be very interesting to know more about the history of your gun if it is, indeed, a DB-81. I am a die-hard DB-81 fan and would like to know all I can find out about them and their various histories.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

Trap2, I too have a DB81 combo from the Monrovia Cal era, ser# 99xxx. Did you ever hear of a DB81E ? I have a Perazzi catalog that shows a DB81E with a non-detachable single selective trigger with coil springs. The catalog states that it is designed for live bird and Olympic trap only and it is based on the MS80 receiver. I'm not sure when this catalog was produced but it has the Rome N.Y. address and talks about the new headquarters in Italy expected to open in Jan 1982 so I'm guessing it is from 1980/81 This catalog also lists the sidelock side by side and sidelock o/u in shotgun or rifle.

"Tom" was a nickname. Tom's real name was Charles. When Tom stamped his work he used his real initials. C.C. Seitz. I don't remember what his middle name was.

Probably the local people would only know that Tom did not stamp all of his work. If you were local and dropped by to see him, and had some work done it was not alway stamped. I have two guns Tom did the work on but did not stamp. The others I have Tom did the work on and did stamp. I really don't know why some were and some weren't. You alway think you'll see a guy at the next shoot and sometimes it doesn't work out that way. I should have asked sooner.

Ajax:

Also, it is my understanding that for a period of time, early 80's, the manufacturers warned all after market enhancers off of imprinting their names on manufacturers products. After short period of time they got it worked out and after market people started stamping their name on products they had worked on. Thanks for helpful clarification. GEG.

Hap... I know what you mean. Like a fool, I sold the first DB-81 Combo I had to a shooter that made me an offer I didn't think I could refuse. It took me quite a while to get back to the DB-81, and that's where I'll stay. I still think that the MX3 Special, and the ORIGINAL DB-81's are the two best guns Perazzi ever made. Everyone has their favorites, but, to me, these are the exceptional pieces they made.... No, my DB-81 is not for sale!...... Dan Thome (Trap2)
