Purchased a type 3 MX-8 with custom wood about 4-5 years ago. Gun shoots well but type 3 forend suffered stress cracking twice and needed repaired and refinished. Purchased type 4 Iron on TS and sent to Giacomo for type change. Not something I would want just anyone to do. Came back today and and I cannot describe the quality other than it looks and fits like a new gun. Well worth the wait. Thanks Dan, Doug and all the crew at Giacomo.

Lug work less than $200 plus reblue due to welding. The trick is to find Type 4 Iron in good condition without spending an arm & a leg. I have a custom Type 3 forend with iron that I will sell or trade to soften the overall cost. Less than $1000 for everything. Will post the Type three with pix at a later date. I believe it is a Anton Hillmer?

Gunfitter: Will post some pictures when I return home from the IL State shoot about 6-18. Will post both the converted gun and type 3 FE & iron. Send PM if you want something specific.

Reyper: I have heard of Phil Simms but have not seen any of his upgrades. Have extra type 4 wood and 3 additional Perazzis now can swap at will. Only one I can not swap is an old live bird gun from about 1967. It is all original so would not mess with it.
