There are a few light handling marks. There are a few dings in the metal on the base of the rib. The markings are clear. The screwheads are sharp. Overall, this shotgun is in Fine Plus condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The barrels lock up with no play. We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: Included is a Perrazi hard case, the previously described additional chokes, tools, two spare firing pins, two spare springs, and spare fiber optic inserts.

Our Assessment: Perazzi sounds like a high end sports car, and in the gun world it is. They have long been a staple of just about any kind of shotgun sport you can name, famous for their craftsmanship, beauty, and durability. As such, they command a high price, with some buyers going all the way to Italy to be measured in person so that their gun can be specially and exactly fit to them. That said, like a high-end sports car, it can be much more economical to buy used. This one is their MX8 models with a 29 1/2″ barrel. Not only does it look sharp, but it comes with a bevy of factory accessories including five extra chokes, a case, tools, and spare parts. With its beautiful construction and legendary Perazzi quality, this is a gun that will turn some heads and dust some clays. Please see our photos and good luck!

Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
