Not the engravers signature.

It doesn't have anything to do with NFA, mac 10s or pillows and potatoes, maverick 88's or Dicks sporting goods.

It has to do with the gap in the metal to wood fit on more than one adjacent surface with the stocking near an area subject to the pivotal forces of recoil on an expensive shotgun.
I still donít think itís a gap. I donít think the picture quality and lighting are good enough to discern definitively that itís an issue. Weíll just have to agree to disagree. Every Perazzi Iíve seen in person and shot were impeccable. The dealer that is selling the gun also has a great reputation. In the 35+ years of shooting shotgun Iíve never heard of a Perazzi stock splitting or anyone bad mouthing their quality. Price yes. Their feel or balance wasnít to their liking: yes.
I have no skin in the game. If anything I should be bad mouthing them since Iím a Beretta guy. Perazzi and Beretta are the two biggest players in the international competition disciplines. They also have large followings in American shotgun disciplines too. That wouldnít be the case if they were splitting stocks.

I had my 'new to me' 1187 out to shoot some clays. Great fun.

Signal 7. I didn't know we were disagreeing to a large extent. I have no skin in the game either.

Maybe why that's why the dealer has that particular shot featured in his pictorial? So a potential buyer can see straight up with what they are considering. Who knows? Maybe I can call him and get better photos.

I think its also important that the dealer didn't build the gun, but what an experienced one would do in my opinion and what makes sense to me.

As far as the quality of the work, its blatantly obvious in the picture and speaks for itself and we can disagree on that.

On a side note,

An agent for a competitor to the gun-maker we are discussing comes to my buddies farm to test guns. He'll have 10 or more guns like that in his truck at the same time. Sometimes more.

Some of his friends that tag along only speak Italian. It's not like anyone ever seen a nice shotgun on the Eastern Shore along a flyway.

They come there all the time to resolve customer repair issues or complaints, to torture test proprietary guns for new production methods model changes-smithing etc.

Next time I see them there Ill tell them I want to shoot some of them or take one goose hunting this year.

Ill get a picture in good light of the gap on his face when I ask him.

Cheers.

That smell NEVER gets old.

Couldnít agree more. Got out to a charity event at First Mine Run yesterday. Itís been a while so I was rusty, but felt good getting back out there. Love it every time.
