About

 

 


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.

My Perazzi Story

Posted by Frank Neumayer on April 29, 2015 at 3:00pm 9 Comments

     I have always admired and appreciated the quality and performance of Perazzi shotguns. I first considered buying one many years ago when I had just started shooting competitive trap and skeet. However, money was tight back then and I just couldn’t justify the cost. I never gave up on the thought of someday owning a Perazzi, so I decided to just keep my eyes open and watch for a good used one to come my way. A few years pasted when that opportunity…

Type 3 forearm wood needed

Posted by Gerald Majors on February 16, 2015 at 12:45pm 2 Comments

I am looking for a nice type 3 forearm (wood only) for my MX8-Ithaca. I have a new stock on it that is more of a blonde walnut with up/down stripes/grain near the end of the stock. Even if it is a little dark but in really good shape I'd be interested.

Giacomo Gunsmithing

Posted by Brian Johnson on January 30, 2015 at 12:57am 2 Comments

Does anyone know if Giacomo accepts Perazzi repairs internationally, I have a Perazzi receiver that needs to be re nickel plated, and I live in N.Z. the other option would be to send it back to the Factory in Italy which would take a lot longer.   

Mid 90's build MX8 Special Combo - Misfire on upper firing pin

Posted by Bill Paulbitski on January 4, 2015 at 9:38am 2 Comments

I jammed the trigger group into the receiver by not properly inserting the forward section first and locking the rear.  Could not budge it.  I'm in Casa Grande trap and skeet and Tom Larkin, gunsmith from Minn. looked at the gun and said no big deal - he sees 5 a year where this was done.  Took off the stock, pushed a lever back as far as it would go - assume the trigger release on the safety and used a pin to drift out the trigger assembly.

The gun shows little…
