I just noticed this crack developing on the forend of my MX2000. If anyone has any recommendations where I can get this fixed, I would appreciate your input. I am not sure if this can be repaired, or if it needs to be replaced. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the inside, if it's right at where the two iron bolts screw into the nuts, it'll need extensive work and re-enforcements to keep it from cracking again.

Thank you for your responses. Talked to the people at Giacomo and decided in for a penny, in for a pound! I'm having the whole shotgun worked on - refinish stock, and re-blue barrel / receiver. And of course new wood for the forend.

A simple $100~150 forearm wood replacement can turn into a $1000 overhaul real quick. :)

For re-bluing, refinish stock, and overhaul Perazzi, you can also talk to Phillip Crenwelge on TS ([email protected]), I had great experiences with his work in many cases, for much more reasonable cost, and fast turnaround time.

So true. But I have been thinking about an overhaul for a while now. Since they wanted both barrels to make sure the new forend fit correctly, I figured I'd just send the whole gun. My MX2000 has saved me a fortune in other trap guns. It's all I really want to shoot.

I totally understand what you're saying.
30 some years ago I started with a relatively inexpensive MX8B, then with predicted temptations as a shotgun person, I went through a dozen other makers/models then came back to couple MX8 based guns, it's hard to realize I had a perfect gun at the beginning without trying others.
So, regardless what kind of engravings or sideplates, all I shoot now are basically different versions of the old MX8.

We "overhaul" a Perazzi typically after 50~80,000 rounds (depend on which barrel shot more) when the top lever stopped at the left side of 6. And it usually cost approx. $300 if you sent it to the right person.

Re-bluing is subject to how you hold the gun. If you can keep your paws off the receiver, you probably never need to re-blue it.
I have old MX8 that had excessive of 100,000 rounds through it, two sets of springs, one new firing pin, new locking bolt, new stock, but it doesn't need re-blue because I don't hold the gun by receiver and I shoot with gloves (for better grips without hand pressure).
