Perazzi Stock Dimensions


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have been shooting my MT6 for a while now and my scores are a little erratic to say the least. Whilst I have not patterned the gun I can see that I am missing most birds below the target, I therefore think that the comb height may be too low.

 

Now chatting to a few fellow Perazzi owners they informed me that the general dimensions for fixed trigger stocked Perazzi tend be slightly lower in the comb than some other guns, Browning was the example used. That would kind of make sense as I shoot my Winchester much better (comes from the same stable as Browning).

 

I know that the only sure fire way of sorting things out is a good gun fitting and a session on the pattern plate but I was just interested if anyone can give me their thoughts or views on this?

 

The gun is definitely a keeper for me so I dont mind investing money in getting it spot on, but just wondering if a quick fix could be employed by attaching a comb raiser until I get round to doing it.

 

Thanks!

Get a conflakes box, cut it in to 1 inch wide strips and attach to your stock with electrical tape.

 

Build it up until you are seeing the correct picture and then you have some idea of how much you will need.

 

Then decide whether to get either an adjustable combe fitted or have a new stock made.

 

Rocket science it is not!

Thanks guys good info, i have one of those beartooth comb sets so will try that when out next. Question was more around the standard dimensions for Perazzi stocks and whether they are considered lower than other brands, just purely out of interest. I know that I dont get on with Beretta's (well most I have tried) due to the stock dimensions so was just wondering if its the same for Perazzi's.

Perazzi's don't really have a standard stock dimentions as on Mass production guns such as Browning and Beretta.

 

There guns are custom made so it's generally what the first owner or importer specified at the time of order.

 

Get it made adjustable is the easiest way.

Cardboard and tape is a good temp measure to find the corract height.

Yes, I thought that was going to be the issue in that the gun was likely made to order. Cast wise it is pretty neutral and overall LOP is a tad under 14.7" pretty spot on for me...

 

Time to get some money out to have the comb made adjustable me thinks!

If the gun is a keeper and you like the way it handles now. You would change that considerably if you go the adjustable comb route, because you will be adding more weight to the stock. My advice would be to get on a pattern plate with someone who really knows how to use a try gun properly. When you are bang on with the try gun, compare the measurements to your current setup.

 

A good gunsmith should be able to modify your existing stock to match. For me the key here is to go somewhere or see someone who can do the lot. If you need a contact then inbox me. This is the route I took and the gun is now spot on big time, it's a prcocess where you go back and forth until the modifications to your gun are spot on.

 

I.e. The gunsmith makes changes, you go away shoot it for a while and then come back. You're then observed on the plate again and on about another 150 clays at the ground.

 

Any small modifications or tweaks are then made again by the gunsmith. This process continues until the fit is perfect, as I said if you want more info then inbox me.

 

When I looked into this I spent a lot of time talking to different gunfitters before making a decision. Friends took the route of going to Perrazzi in Italy to get their fit done. Others went to Portugal, I decided to get it all done in the UK. Both of my friends have had to have modifications to their stocks when back in the UK, however their stocks are now a perfect fit.

 

My view is that the amount of time and money we invest in shooting, we may as well make sure that the gun fits as good as possible..

 

Try running the 100 meters in a pair of trainers that don't fit properly 😊

Thanks HardFocus that really is great advice, and yes the gun is definitely a keeper. I agree about the change in balance after fitting an adjustable comb, in fact the gunsmith I use said the same, although minor it will have an impact. For now I have installed a stick on comb raiser 6mm from RecoilSystems and apart from hating the way it looks it has improved my scores significantly. Having said that I have only had my Perazzi for a few months and havent really shot it that much so I am still getting to know it. It was away for 3 weeks having a full strip and service so now I just need to crack on and shoot it and see how I fair.

 

I am loathed to make too many adjustments until I am sure that my mount is correct and I know the gun, then I will go and arrange a full fitting somewhere reputable to get it finally sorted!
