Who should I see or contact to order a Perazzi Shotgun. Who has the best prices? Are the stock guns for sale the same price as ordering a gun to my specs. with same options?
Thanks JW

Where are you located? There's really only about 3 places to order a new Perazzi from here in the U.S.: Pacific Sporting Arms in CA; Giacomo's in NY; and Paxton Arms in TX.

I bought two Perazzi guns (MX2000/8 and MX12L) from Pacific Sporting Arms and I can say that their customer service is excellent. I would buy another gun (which I will) from them without hesitation. The other two dealers mentioned might be closer to your location though.

Yes. The only issue with ordering a custom gun is excruciating wait - both of my Perazzis were custom order and it took about 4 month for each. In addition, I would suggest to make a list of all the features you want before hand to ensure you won't forget anything, for example:

- Barrel length
- Barrel weight
- Chokes (fixed/interchangeable)
- Rib type (ramped, step, flat, adjustable/non-adjustable, tapered/non-tapered, etc.)
- Mid rib type (ventilated, solid, none)
- Beads (front only, front and mid, no beads)
- Action finish (blued/nickeled/case colored/etc.)
- Action engraving
- Trigger type (selectable/non-selectable, drop out MX8 platform/non-drop-out MX12 platform)
- Safety (manual/automatic)
- Stock:
* Wood grade
* LOP, drop, cast, pitch
* Grip radius, length of reach (very important!)
- Fore-end:
* Style (English/fluted beavertail/Schnabel)
* Checkering (fully/partially)
- Overall gun weight
- etc.

The above is just a template, which will ensure you will get exactly what you want.

Good luck!

Honestly that's pretty quick compared to what some top end rifle builders here in the US make you wait......

Don't forget to add the month of August as Perazzi takes the entire month off.

Gets me every time.

I had a good experience working directly with Al Kondak and subsequently Pacific Sporting Arms. You also might speak with David Radulovich. Check out his website for further information.

Best of luck, it is worth the wait!

I vote for Giacomo Sporting. If you custom order a gun and it doesn't come as you specify (which has happened to a friend of mine a couple of times as well as others that I know of), Dan will do his best to rectify the issue, since he is himself a gunsmith and has his brother there to do stockwork.

For off the rack guns, I would look at HiGrade Shooters and Larry Friedman (username lbf on gunbroker). They seem to have the most available inventory, especially HiGrade. I would also recommend attending a big shoot (trap/skeet/sporting clays) if possible, as most vendors will be amicable to do a deal on the spot for an off the rack gun, provided you have the cash on hand.

Another vote for Giacomo (2d place by just a nose would be Pacific Sporting Arms).

I tried to use David R and he totally dropped the ball.

I think Hi-Grade shooters in Western PA can also take care of you. I can recommend them without issue, but I've not purchased a Perazzi. I know a couple of the guys there shoot them....

I ordered mine through Hi Grade supply. I knew exactly how I wanted it set up and it came in as spec'd. Roy hand delivered my order to Mauro Perazzi at the SHOT show and promised to personally pick the wood for my gun-It's pretty sweet! They will take good care of you. Steve

I lived in Italy for two years, and I can assure you everyone else does as well!

Sera,

Sorry to hear this? I was unaware that anything happened? Could you let me know what your experience was so that I could rectify or improve upon it?

Thanks!

I would also recommend Cole's in FL. I have done business with Ritch for some years now and have always be happy with the results. He is an Italian gun specialist with great skills IMO. :D

I think he delivered 50 or so Perazzi last year. Probably not a lot in the overall scheme of things, but your gun will come from someone who knows his stuff. {hs#

Sera,

I appreciate the response! However, I have to say that I'd hardly categorize you not being able to get ahold of me as "me totally dropping the ball".

I do apologize for that though, things have gotten busy over here -- I'm in need of hiring a secretary that will work for free! Haha!

In all seriousness though I've been in the process of upgrading everything on my end to manage everything more efficiently, it's working a little better. The biggest problem is consolidating all the different avenues that people attempt to get ahold of you though; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, texting, messaging, emailing multiple addresses, online forums, calling multiple phone numbers, Google, etc. It's a full time job just checking those once a day, unfortunately.

Can we go back to using snail mail? Haha

In all seriousness, thanks for the reply -- I've heard it a few times and I'm in the process of putting together a more simplistic and successful system that I can manage while traveling to compete and host clinics. It's been a blast so far!

I just ordered a new bunker trap gun for Abby. Chris Batha just did the spec sheet yesterday. She has grown from LOP at 14 3/4" to 16" in just over a year. Al said we would prolly not see the gun until around Christmas.

Oh, by the way, I have a MX8 with 31 and 29 barrels I need to sell so I can afford the new gun

Is she like 7 feet tall? I've never seen anyone with a 16" LOP.

She is 6' with a neck like a giraffe. She is not catching the straight up birds quickly enough
