According to the link above your TMX with BA was made in 1991 and is considerably newer than mine. A friend of mine had a TM-1 with the same factory firing pin bushing as your gun has. The bushing looks like a Pat Laib BT-99 bushing but is factory Perazzi. My TMX bought used 20 years ago has firing pin hole wear but has not gotten any worse in the 20 years I have had it. I knew the original owner and he made reloads using Finnish primers and I only use Winchester primers.

i was told that some of these guns had the bushing when they were sold new. i wonder if i could find out from perazzi.,and if the nickel plating was done at the factory.

On my friend's TM-1 Special it definitely had the bushing when he bought it new. His TM-1 also had a tapered rib like my TMX where most of the older TM-1's had a rib that was the same width full length.
