Gun reviews on youtube

how would you contrast the two factories Lloyd?

Good question Matt. Very different experiences between the two, I followed two guys both getting custom guns made to order through the process at Perazzi and Beretta. Perazzi is a smaller company and has a much more personal feel, e.g. meeting and chatting with Mauro and Niko Perazzi, Fabrizio their head stocker. it's a very intimate experience. Beretta is a massive company and the service, while very good, felt more impersonal. Much as you would expect really. In terms of the actual factories, and the guys building the guns, they were very similar. All the staff at both factories looked like proper craftsmen and women, and watching them work was a real pleasure.

I have a lot of photos which I haven't processed yet and will share in time.

Chapeu to you Mr. Pattison. 

I really enjoy your reviews. Your enthusiasm for the shotguns shows through. And it's honest reviews in my opinion (you are not trying to flog any particular brand or the like). And I don't mind your adverts for the people who loan you the weapons, absolutely fair in my view. 

And as a non native English speaker, you have a very easy and understandable language (both prenountiation and also sound quality). And further on the technical aspects you have good lighting, and don't  obscure what you are showing with your hands and arms. 

Very enjoyable and good work indeed.

I'll (with the help of my wife) be doing a review of the Tempio Syren soon, which is basically a Magnus without the sideplate. She loves it.

The trigger not being adjustable was the thing that took the MXS out of the running for me.  I have slightly smaller than average hands and could tell after 5 minutes shouldering it in the shop it was going to be a problem.

No Perazzi has standard adjustable trigger, even if you spend £20k!

Didn't know that.  Wasn't really looking much at other Perazzi's (though was offered a couple), I was choosing between new MXS vs new 692 black vs used DT11 vs used K80.

Indeed they do not, but Perazzi make the 8 and the 12 to measure, the MXS is an off the rack gun. If I were buying an MX I would get one to fit, or if buying secons hand get some wood to fit. That isn't an option on the S and therefore IMO it needs an adjustable trigger.

Insane not to fit an adjustable IMO. Even if it’s made for you, you may wish to experiment with it. When I first had my MX12, I was often firing before I meant to because the trigger pulls were so light. I could have cured this by sliding the trigger forward so my fingertip would be in contact, where the finger is more sensitive.

Still have / shoot an MX12 will? that looks like an F3 in your profile pic.

Nice dilemma :) I would be looking at pre owned K80 / DT11 out of that list, lots more gun for the money.

I bought a (fairly lightly) used DT11 last weekend - cost slightly less than the MXS would have new

I shot it exclusively from 2007 to 2015 and it’s lovely. It’s an SC3 from when they were sensible money.  I just find the Blaser a touch easier to use with it’s lighter barrels. I have had my Perazzi stock modified to exactly give me the Blaser fit, but it’s still not quite as effective on clays for me. It’s making my cabinet look pretty these days and I’ll take it out for a game day in November.

Hah, it's funny you say that. I was thinking while at the factory "if I ever had one made I would model the stock on my old F3". I miss that gun sometimes but I just couldn't justify having it in the cabinet when I wasn't shooting it.

Thanks.  I actually hadn't really noticed how nice it was until I took the photo to show my wife, a week after I bought it...

Good review Lloyd and you make the point quite well that whilst the 692 is competent it isn't special and fails to be distinctive.  Also, thanks to the well documented problems, I think it has tested the brand loyalty concept to the limit.

Quite a few people "used to own one", but overall it hasn't achieved anywhere near the popularity or sales volume of it's predecessor.

As usual, worth watching.  Your delivery seems to be improving too Lloyd.
