I used one of my friends 34" Full, MX3 Special last week and to say I was impressed is an understatement. Now I can see why so many shoot this gun and Perazzi's.
A very fast gun. I was breaking targets much quicker and started laughing when after 5 in row they were all smoke balls. Now I suppose I need to look for one.

Question is: What Perazzi barrels with fit the special (models)? I'm aware there is a difference from the regular MX3 to the special. What price am I looking at for the MX3 Special vs the MX3.

thanks for any imput

Bob.... There is a genuine shortage of nice MX-3 Specials due to just the experience you had with one. Most MX-3 Special owners are reluctant to part with theirs. I searched for a long time to come up with an unaltered, factory original MX-3 Special Combo with 34/32 barrels. I was fortunate to find one on this site from "Toofast", and paid him $5800 for the gun and was happy to get it for that. It was way beyond an average MX-3 Special. I have a close friend that just ran across another one that is in excellent condition and has the O/U barrels done by Wilkinson. The wood is about average, has a small dent in the O/U rib, but, other than that, it's nice. Was also in the $5000 range. Any type 4 barrel will work on the MX3 Special receiver. Be aware that the MX3 and MX3 Specials have a slightly higher rib than the rest of the MX8 style guns. It has been my experience that the MX3 will sell for around $1000 less than the MX-3 Special in a combo configuration. The Mx3 also shoots the top barrel first while the MX3 special shoots the bottom barrel first.... There is, indeed, a cult following when it comes to the MX3 Special. I'm very happy with mine.......
