I made the 27 with a Precision Fit Stock that allowed me to load a Handicap load that didn't kick the crap out of me in my MX8. Still shooting the same set up except I added a higher rib and a ultimate fit comb. Have had to change my handicap load though with the lack of availability of 7625.
MX3 special I have made it back 7 times , currently on the 27 , I yo-yo back and forth every other year , not a very good shooter from the 27 , but I never stay on the 26 very long , still shoot the MX3 for singles went to a DB81 for handicap , did not help any.
I made it to the 27 yd. in 2001 with a Beretta 390 32" Wilkinson barrel work, .036 fixed choke.
I got tired of cleaning it all all the time and went to other guns from there. I STILL HAVE IT. Haven't shot it for a while.....maybe this weekend.
