Pass the kettlecorn....
Ive been enjoying the game of sporting clays and have noticed a lot of people shooting this gun. Anyone have reviews they would be willing to share. primarily about the mx8 or mx12.

My father owns one. He bought it about 30 years ago for about $3500, not sure of the model. It is the only gun he hunts with and never had a problem. Screw in chokes, vent rib but without the rib between the barrels in 12 gauge. The USA service center at the time was in upstate NY. They fitted the stock to him. The gunsmith had a large inventory of finished stocks with different dimensions. He just pulled one off the rack until one fit. Gun comes apart easily and is built to last.
A 9mm may expand to a larger diameter, but a 45 ain't going to shrink
they trained gunsmiths at Ithaca to service perazzis for the US customer base.The USA service center at the time was in upstate NY

Mel Hunting was the fly boy between Perazzi and the local guys that had them ,. He and his son had a gun shop in Whitehouse that closed many years ago.
Mx 8 was the gun built for the 1968 olympics
were about 2000 then , are worth ALOT more than that today.

They also sold it as a set with a single barrel

I sold my MX2000c and went back to Beretta SO5.
FITASC and Sporting clays shooter by and large will go with a Kolar,Blaser Beretta, and Krieghoff.
I'm seeing a lot of Guerini which are very nice guns also.
Call Giacomo 315 336 1356 if you are intrested.
Ithaca was the sole importer back in the early 70s. Shotguns at this level are handmade by old world craftsmen. And they don't come cheap. But, you can find older Ithaca Perazzi's on GunsAmerica or GunBroker for a good used price. The new ones are much more expensive today.

If only Jack O'Connor had written about the .270's effectiveness on Zombies, he might be known today as a decent gun scribe, and that cartridge might enjoy more widespread use...
