What do you consider the best shotgun for Fitasc?

I'm looking at a Parazzi just not sure what model.

Is it true they will do a custom fitting with purchase?

You can spec everything about a Perazzi from barrel length, weight, weight distribution, type of grip, type of forearm, drop-out trigger group or not, fixed or changeable chokes, etc.

"Best" any item is a relative term,But Perazzi's are FINE guns and there are several other brands that would work just fine as well :)

Absolutely............ANY gun capable of firing two shots can do the job - if the shooter can do his part

Let me rephrase. If you could choose any Fitasc shotgun, what would it be?

This is such a bad answer. If everyone could shoot perfectly all the time then there would be no reason to have different guns, everyone would have a Mossberg 930 because they're the cheapest two shot gun out there. It adds nothing to the conversation and doesn't help anyone.

But as a real answer, because FITASC can vary greatly, any good quality gun that can give you good movement in all directions can be useful, I'd shy away from any specialized gun particulars and find an all around sporting gun. Any of the custom guns can be set up for it, I would shoot a few and see if you can borrow some to see if you like the swing in different directions and the guns movement.

I would have a bespoke Perazzi made.

Added: With fixed chokes of tight and tighter.... :wink:

Not a bad answer at all; merely stating it is the Indian, not the arrow. Does a custom-fitted perfectly balanced gun give the average guy a better chance? I think it does. I would also venture that any of the top dogs could pick up practically any gun and outshoot us mere mortals.......

I have a Perazzi. It shoots Fitasc way better than I can.

Order one from a dealer like Pacific Sporting Arms or Dan Lokker @ Giacomos. They can walk you thru all of the things you need to know and what works best for you.

I find certain features work better for me. I like a tightly curved pistol grip. The relaxed pistol grip is uncomfortable to me. I prefer a semi-beavertail fore-end. I do not like a schnabel.

I like choke tubes. Makes the gun more versatile. BUT I do have one set of bbls that is choked 18 and 24 which works great for Fitasc.

Figure out what you want.

Thanks Guys.

Currently I have a fitted Kolar for Skeet/Sporting. Large palm swell and twisted stock to fit my pocket.
I also have a high rib, which I believe doesn't help in Fitasc.

Was going to try some low rib straight stock guns.

Heck if you used to the high rib sounds to me you're all set for Fitasc :) Now just wanting something else is different all together :)

No FITASC gun discussion would be complete without mention of a Krieghoff Parcours. I came from a Perazzi MX2000 and would not go back. YMMV

I answered this question for myself 9 years ago. Perazzi MX2000 with 34” barrels, flat rib, fixed chokes of .020 and .028 stocked to my dimensions. It weighs 8lb 10oz, but moves so smoothly I’ve shot lots of straights at skeet and wobble skeet, gun down. For ME it’s the perfect FITASC gun. That said, I’ve got some shoulder issues and I’ve been shooting a Beretta A400 Sporting with the Kick Off. It’s a pound lighter, gives me less recoil and I shoot it as well as the Pgun. Anything that fits you, moves the way you want it to and is reliable will work. Perazzi’s are just the coolest Sporting shotguns in existence and if you want one and can afford it, buy one.
Regards,
Jeff

PS: choke tubes are for sissies.

At the risk of intense flaming... My buddy just bought a CG Invictus VII. I believe it to be equal to a Perazzi in most ways and superior in others. For instance, the CG locks out barrel selection unless it’s on safe to prevent the “Perazzi double”. The lock-time and trigger are outstanding as well.

If I didn’t already shoot a Parcours, I’d be buying a Caesar Guerini.

A400 xcel 32" barrel Muller U3 choke..........been enjoying fitasc for a long time. Added a monte carlo stock for a more consistent mount, been happy, and have moved to 1oz loads now for everything, 5 stand, sporting, super sporting, and Fitasc.

Alot of guys are shooting fixed choke guns for fitasc, and or "live piegon barrels". The Parcour is becoming the must have for Fitasc, hence its name.

The Parcours is an excellent shotgun, but it’s just Krieghoff building a gun that moves more like a Perazzi than the more muzzle heavy traditional K80s. It’s nice that Krieghoff gives shooters a choice in gun dynamics, but nothing at this price point matches the customization you get with buying a new, just for you, Perazzi. I think the biggest problem is most people are overwhelmed when they see all the choices one has to make when ordering a true custom gun. I knew exactly what I wanted, and that’s what I got. Shoot what makes you happy.

I am going to have the temerity to say that comparable to the A400, some would say better, are the FABARM Sporting models with 30-32 inch barrels. I am ducking for cover now! Look out-INCOMING! LOL
