I've just never been into fake stuff.


How much value would a real piece of wood like that add to the value of the Perazzi ?

The thing I think Mark is missing is that at some point down the road someone will be fooled into thinking the wood is real...

To me this is just another form of counterfeit...worst of all it's on mother nature.

You did do a nice job, Mark. I thought the original was kind of neat with those 2 knots. Had it been mine, I would have left it alone, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The wood they used on the older standard Perazzi guns was pretty plain, but had some beauty all its own.

The really good news is that you will never want for projects even if you limit yourself to Perazzi. Perazzi has consistently pushed off the most horrid wood on a substantial number of their guns for decades. Certain to provide of test of your considerable skills - or patience at any rate hahaha


I have bought all my Perazzis from Harry Marx. They all had beautiful wood. He told me that many dealers hi-grade the wood and sustitute lesser quality wood, reserving the better stocks as 'upgrades'. I do not know if this is true, but Harry has always been straight with me.

Nice work. Glad you took an interest so that others can benefit!


Life is too short to have a 'hate on' for so many things or people. Isn't it?

FWIW, I've been refinishing stocks, mostly crappy wood, for about 45 years now, and can tell you that many of the gunmakers use a plain hardwood (mostly) base, then "paint" on a rich color with fancy graining.

Some, like Beretta, own up to their shenanigans by advertising the paint job as "Ultra Wood" (and other monikers) - usually at an added cost; others make no mention of their stock finishing antics, leaving a gun owner to find out only after their gun has received deep scratches in the wood or elects for a refinish (surprise !).

What the OP is doing is wonderfully resurrecting a failing situation cause by the gunmaker(s).
