I am curious in the replies to this as well. I heard but don't know for sure that the POI is higher than a typical TM1. The resell value might be higher with a TM9X but I don't care because I like a fixed rib anyway. I would order one with screw in chokes because of the flexibility at various yardages.
I own a TM 9 with fixed stock,fixed rib,and fixed choke.
I love the gun and my scores have risen since using the TM 9 , move from an MX 16 combo.
Assuming the gun fits in general you can go to a stock fitter and have him adjust the POI from inside the stock.
Not sure why you would order with screw in chokes, it would seem to be any subsequent buyer who prefers a fixed stock, fixed rib would also like a fixed choke.
I have one of the first TM-9X's that were imported. I broke a lot of 100's with it but always have to work really hard to break them. I can't get it to shoot flat enough for my style. I don't think that they make one with tubes.
I paid less than $1700 for my TMX new. Tom Seitz tuned the barrel for $165. It now has over 250,000 thru it. I shot a TM9X when they came out. There are some minor internal changes but not worth the money Perazzi wants. I would buy a used TMX, have it refinished and rebuilt, if you like and use the extra $$$$ for retirement. You're old enough to be retired anyway. A Pa. shooter removed.
I owned a TM9 for a short time and shot it a fair amount. It did have an adjustable comb and with the comb raised approximately 1/4 inch, the gun shot around 70/30. It had an 18.8 bore and a fixed choke at .032". Overall impressions of the gun: Patterned well, nice looking gun, typical Perazzi SBT in that it was very lightweight and quick to the targets, but recoil friendly?...I wouldn't go that far.
