Just a little teaser. Several weeks ago we received this stock and forend on a Perazzi TM-X. The stock was new from somewhere else but the stock was cracked in 3 places, forend did not fit the iron & the pressure points in the wood to metal fit had not been properly done. With a little TLC I think the wood came out great and the owner should be proud to display this one. The pressure block in the back of the receiver was glass bedded and the cracks were repaired to the point they do not show. My hat is off to my guys (Mike & Tracy)again who did an outstanding job. If you are in need of a refinished stock give us a call at the shop 330-456-6070. Thank you for taking a look.

That appears to be a "Simms" stock. I have had minor issues with his fit too. Had I sent in a gun to have the stock fitted, I would not have had the minor issues. But Dennis is doing one very important thing that everyone should do with their Perazzis and that is to acrabed the bolt tang area of stock. If you do that it takes pressure off the tang areas and you do not get chipping and cracking. Good work Dennis.

For Trap 2,

The cost was about $ 700.00 for everything. I wish I had saved the before photos but they got deleated. The wood on the inside was were the time was taken. Due to the cracking issues we had to add quite a bit of wood and bond it to the original stock and that took a little time. Also when the stock was stripped the guys dug out the filler and replaced the holes with hand cut wood strips that were made from English Walnut. These strips were epoxyed in so they would not let loose or shrink in the finish later. The epoxy we use is a special item from Loctite that does not turn white when finish is applied. Many epoxy's turn white when hit with a fast drying excellerator or a chemical reaction from the finish and the epoxy. It has taken us a long time to find the right expoy. Also got a few tips from Earnie Ross on different epoxies and how to make paste fillers. Thank you for the reviews. And yes Dave I have your Peraxxi here for the checkering. Cindy will have that done by Friday and back in UPS to you.

Dennis,

What did you use as the finish on this stock? Poly, lacquer, etc.

I like the sheen. Is it satin?

Thanks,

Jon
