Giacomo Sporting USA has approved Perazzi Shotgun to use their Perazzi photos and content for educational and informational purposes.

Perazzi gunsmithing is an art and skill that has been passed down from generation to generation throughout families in Italy. At the young age of 18, Giacomo Arrighini began working at the Perazzi factory in Brescia, Italy. Mr. Daniel Perazzi sent Giacomo to the Ithaca Gun Company in Ithaca, New York to train the employees on how to service Perazzi shotguns in 1973. Mr. Perazzi recognized that if he was to have a market in America, he would have to be able to provide the same level of gunsmithing service as in Italy. In 1979, Perazzi USA, Inc. was formed in Rome, New York as a distribution and service center in the United States. Giacomo managed the company.

Just as Daniel Perazzi is passing down his skills and company to his children, so is Giacomo Arrighini taking the time and effort to continue the same fine tradition in his family - with his daughter, Daniela and his son-in-law, Dan Lokker. Through a rigorous 15 year apprenticeship, Dan Lokker honed the intricate skills required to provide Perazzi Shotgun owners in the US with factory-quality gunsmithing services. The future goal of passing down this same storied tradition of Old World craftsmanship to Giacomo’s grandchildren remains intact.

Giacomo Sporting USA, Inc. team includes Dan, Daniela (Giacomo’s daughter), Doug, Doug Sr, and Giacomo himself. They each perform an aspect of Perazzi Gunsmithing. This includes metalworking, stock-making and woodworking, barrel-fitting and finishing, action and trigger mechanisms, all to factory standards. Doug, for example, has the skill to take a block of wood and transform it into a custom-fitted stock and fore-end for your favorite Perazzi shotgun. Dan Lokker is a fully trained, qualified, experienced, and passionate Perazzi Gunsmith. Dan’s abilities include, but not limited to fine tuning a trigger, fitting another set of barrels to that MX8 of yours, plus much more. Other services include: Slow rust bluing, hot bluing, resoldering barrels, lengthen forcing cones, open choke, electroless nickel plating, machanical repairs and much more.This is the main difference between buying a custom-fitted Perazzi from Giacomo Sporting versus anyone else in the US.

About Giacomo

At the young age of 18 Giacomo Arrighini

began working at the Perazzi factory in Brescia Italy. Mr. Daniele Perazzi sent Giacomo to the Ithaca Gun Company in Ithaca, New York to train the employees how to service Perazzi shotguns in 1973. The purpose of this was so that the American market could receive service on his or her Perazzi shotgun. In 1979 Perazzi USA, Inc. was formed in Rome, New York as a distribution and service center in the United States. Therefore, Giacomo was relocated to Rome to manage the company and provide friendly service. In 1988 Mr. Perazzi decided to transfer Perazzi USA, Inc. to Monrovia, California. Giacomo made a decision to open his own company and continue specializing in the sales and service of the high quality Perazzi shotgun that he has become so attached to. On April 1 1988 (Giacomo's Birthday) that dream was realized with the opening of Giacomo Sporting, Inc. located at 6234 Stokes Lee Center Rd. in Lee Center, New York 13363.

early top lever

Posted by Kerran J Madden (Ron) on January 11, 2014 at 8:31pm 1 Comment

I have an early SC1 (#43996) drop out triggers, that has broken its top lever a couple of times now. They were apparently weak from the outset being scalloped out to allow the firing pins thru.

Has anyone converted their early model…
