Beautiful Comp. 1Parting with some of my guns due to not shooting much ATA, too nice of a gun to have just sitting in the safe...
This is an older Perazzi MX-8 32" Over/ Under. It's set up for doubles shooting, Wilkinson did choke work on it. I've only shot it once for doubles, and it is one of the softest shooting Perazzi shotguns I've owned. I searched for about 2 years for a beautifully engraved hunting scene Perazzi, and this gun fit the bill.
The wood stock has a couple of issues...whoever owned it cut a sliver out of the wood by the opening lever to allow clearance for the lever. The pistol grip had a very fine hairline crack on the top of the pistol grip by the safety latch which has been repaired . Included are pictures to describe the beauty of this nice Perazzi.
Price is $6595.00 shipped to your ffl holder. PM me for any additional info. Probably not interested in trades. Thanks for looking!

It's a type III MX8 in SC3 grade.Very beautiful gun! That’s an old one also (Type 2) and maybe one of the oldest MX8’s I’ve seen? The scalloped receiver is definitely the calling card of the MX8 vs the solid-sided Comp1.
A question for the Perazzi historians; did the real early MX8’s have vertical vent ribs similar to Comp1’s, vs the later X slanted vent ribs? Thanks, BF
Type III refer to FE attachment only. It has nothing to do with anything else.Based upon the ‘port’ side, or 3:00 o’clock position of the top lever release button, I’m guessing this beautiful gun is a Type 2.
