I bought a Perazzi MX-8 Bunker gun with 31 1/2" barrels. Although I am in good shape for an old guy, it is simply too portly for Bunker.
I put a factory take off Trap stock on it, and it works GREAT. It is my favorite gun to shoot at anything other than Bunker or Skeet. It is sudden death on Singles, Caps, Wobble Trap, and Sporting, and what a pleasure to shoot!
The shorter one is my 29 1/2" Mirage Bunker gun with factory Try Stock. It is a firehouse on the Bunker field.
Thank you fellows for the help! Someone up here has a new in box 32" olympic trap MX2000/3 O/U with screw in teague chokes for sale, and I'm not sure of the barrel weight. Would it be a wise investment having to purchase another stock to transform it to an American style trap model? Ernie
Can someone explain the reasoning behind the design of the olympic stocks, with regards to the major differences between drop at heel and comb. I can't see it would be a very comfortable gun to shoot for our type of trap shooting, whereas the heel of the comb will be slapping the shooter in the face. Am I way off base here? ....Ernie
Drool on the keyboard here!!! They are really pretty shootin irons. I'm going to see this gun in the morning, I'll know better once I see it and shoot it, if I will like it or not...I'll post if I have a chance tomorrow night...Thank you again.....Ernie
mx-8b you got some gems there, what ive noticed being used in bunker is pretty much a sporting conf. with tighter chockes, some use lower stocks some dont, most have flat ribs, if can get on nbc olympic web site to see what was used by most,
Update on Perazzi MX2000/3 Olympic Trap. I took the plunge and bought the gun yesterday, 32" O/U with Teague factory installed extended chokes, and it is everything I could hope for. Having a hunting background, I've struggled with high shooting trap guns, especially on crossing targets, but the 2000/3 fits the bill with a 3 position adj rib, settings are from 50/50-80/20, while stacking the beads. The Olympic model has the front of the comb cut 10mm higher than the rear, but the factory .736 bore and 3" chambers makes for a very soft perceived recoiling target gun. No need for the safe to be filled with skeet and sporting clay guns, because this one will play them all, with minutes between setup changes...Yes, I am very satisfied with my new purchase...Thanks for all your help....Ernie
