Finally -

About a month ago, I purchased a new-to-me Perazzi MX2000S. Over the previous year I'd shot a number of Perazzis, Krieghoff Parcours, and Zolis. I finally realized that I liked the feel, pointability, and recoil profile of the P-gun best.

I found and purchased a beautiful, gently used 2013 MX2000S(the wood is stunning, btw - best I've seen on a non-bespoke Perazzi - pronounced burl and fiddleback), recently serviced by Perazzi USA. The only adjustment necessary for a perfect fit was moving the adjustable comb a tiny bit to the right. It has 31.5" factory CT'd barrels, but at 70 grams per pair, the factory chokes placed the balance point about 3/8" behind the hinge pin. I ordered Teague flush titanium chokes and this moved the balance point to the front edge of the pin - HUGE difference in feel.

I've been busy refereeing FITASC this year, but have managed to put about a flat of shells through my new toy and it is an absolute joy to shoot! I understand what all you long-time Perazzi were talking about. Life is simply too short not to shoot a Perazzi!

Kindest,

Edited - should read "3/8" in front of hinge pin"
Sorry for the double post :oops:

Hi, I would like to know your impression of your MX 2000S after having it for over a year. I am considering purchasing a 2006 MX 2000S and would appreciate any advice/help you can give me.

I have an MX 2000 and it shoots just fine. Digweed has shot a 2000s for almost 20 years and has said often that it is NOT holding him back.

Thanks sera.

I am new to this forum and this is my first Perazzi purchase. I am also considering a 1981 MX8 Mirage that is highly engraved with a game scene with gold inlays. Both guns are comparable in price.

I shoot sporting clays with some skeet. I would like your advice on these guns or on a first Perazzi purchase.

spin--I have one each of an MX 8 , Mx 2000 and High Tech. I find almost nothing to choose from among these three.

Mirages were made thru about 1982. The 2000 (sorta) replaced them. The 2000 is nothing more than an MX 8 w/ a little engraving.

For me , I like a gun w/ choke tubes , weighing 8 lbs 4 ozs to 8 lbs 8 ozs. 32 (or 31.5) inch bbls. English like forend (I really don't like schaubel) and an adjustable comb stock. This way I can tweak the fit to please me.

2000 has drop out triggers. 2000s does not. I have no preference there , as they both work fine and can be set to 3 lbs pull (I shoot 3 for the 1st bbl, 3.5 for the 2d bbl). I use my gun to shoot pigeons , ZZ's clays etc and like choke tubes to be able to do that.

Feel free to call if you have more Q's
