Hi Sera ,

You want to know why the Hi Tech costs more , and the barrels and stocks won't fit the
MX-8 or MX-12 Models which brought the company to where they are today ?

Because the King of arrogance Mauro Perazzi says he can !

He has stated to more then one individual I know , the American market for Perazzi is dead in his " Little Boy Eyes " .

Don't be surprised if this company one day is owned by new owners . His short sighted business acumen is so glaringly obvious .......

6K for 20 Gauge Extra Barrels, 7K for 28 Gauge extra Barrels ?

I think he is snorting Cocaine through an Extra set of Perazzi Barrels ! :roll:

PJD

PJ: This is my take on it , too. I was wondering if Brandon could pontificate up a better answer. Obviously not.

Some businessmen should be horse-whipped.

The other day a friend was asking me about advertising. He told me a story about a campaign that worked to perfection and how he now had a new idea....blah , blah. My input: do what worked in the past, why re-invent the wheel when you have a loyal following?

Having ordered and owned several Perazzi guns there is little doubt in my mind that the "brand" has been effected by the loss of Daniella. The "family" obviously has new ideas as to what customers in the US want and are willing to pay for their products. The MXS & now the Hi Tech are examples of guns that no one was asking for. The increase in prices for guns and extra barrels has gone nuts. I have no experience with Al Kondak but I have had dealings with Lucio and they were very satisfactory. With so many quality competition guns available in the US today (Blaser/Beretta/CG/K-80/Kolar/Zoli) I don't think Perazzi is moving in the right direction. The 2016 Olympics had several shotgun medals won with Beretta DT-11's when Perazzi used to be all conquering at the Olympics. Perazzi built their reputation on being a custom gun that was very reliable and could be ordered in sooo many configurations but now the lead times, prices, and lack of a presence at big shoots in the US does not bode well for gaining new Perazzi converts IMO. Time will tell if the "new" marketing program will pay off for Perazzi or if they will go the way of Renato Gamba & Keman and many other European makers that once were sold and serviced here but are now only available in Europe.

Lucia leaving PUSA is one of the reasons my new gun came from WI.

So with ShotShow almost here, I'm assuming another 5% price increase for 2017? :lol: :lol: :lol: 28 gauge barrels will probably be $10,000 in another 2 years. :roll:

sernv99; you are probably not far off! "IF" Perazzi really wanted to introduce new product for the U S market aimed at Sporting Clays shooters, they could offer match weighted barrels in sub-gauge that could be purchased in the $3K price range. But NOOOO if you want to shoot a Perazzi in any sub gauge events you have to run the gauntlet trying to find, purchase, fit etc. some barrels or you have to have multiple guns or use tubes. Notice that Blaser, Kolar, Krieghoff, CG, and others already have barrel sets and barrels available. As to the new Hi-Tech line of guns, with the "stronger & wider & heavier" receivers, nobody was having any problems with the weight and balance of the tried & true MX8/MX12/MX2000 etc. guns. Krieghoff's approach of offering a lighter, faster moving gun STILL used the same receivers of the existing line of guns. Kolar did the same when they introduced the Max-Lite guns. "IF" Perazzi felt they needed another new line or model they obviously didn't ask U S shooters for any input IMO. Hope the new management team figures it out before they lose their U S market altogether.

R: The "problem" comes in when marketing does not shoot nor does it talk to enough shooters. NO ONE was begging for the new wider rec'r nor the funky rib. Both were just marketing stunts.

On the other hand Kolar decreased the weights of their guns by 3/4th of a POUND. Taking a ponderous--at best- gun and making it feel lie a ...well....a Perazzi. :idea: duhh.

That's one reason the 4 P-stick sit in the safe. :?
