There are a few small handling marks so I rate it at 99% condition.  This is a gun for the serious skeet competitor.  Free Shipping in the original 48 states.

HA2359 Perazzi (Ithaca) Mirage Sporting Combo, Long-LOP, O/U 12 Ga. 2 3/4", 30" Ported Bbls., Briley Sub-Gauge 20-28-410 30" Tubes, Extra Trigger, Stock, Springs, (Used-Custom), Cased, $6,995

This Perazzi Mirage was built in 1973 in Italy and was Imported by Ithaca. First it was used as a trap gun, but not used very much, then I bought it in 1992 and had Klaus Hiptmayer (now retired) carve me a stock from exhibition grade wood.  The stock was made to my dimensions, so the Length of pull is 15 7/8".  I was fascinated with the idea of a custom stock so I had the butt checkered, no pad.  I realized this was a mistake after shooting a round of Skeet with the 12 Gauge.  I think I have shot one or two rounds of Skeet with the 28 Gauge inserts in the last 20 years, so the gun is as modified. Any purchaser under 6'5" will probably want to have the stock shortened and a recoil pad fitted.  The bottoms of both triggers were engraved  by Heidi Hiptmayer (now deceased) with a Fleur-de-Lis with Serpent Entwined, which is the Hero's Arms Logo (at the top of this page), and also the Crest from the Buckner Family Coat of Arms.  In Heraldry the Fleur-de-Lis signifies purity, the Serpent signifies wisdom (after the Garden of Eden).  The 30" (760mm) barrels have sub-gauge tube fitted by Briley and Thin Wall Briley Choke tubes.  For the 12 Gauge there are five chokes, Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder and 2 Skeet.  For the 20-28-410 Tube sets each has Modified, Improved Cylinder and Two Skeet chokes.  The combo comes with a number of extras.  The gun itself comes with a non-selective trigger, the bottom barrel always fires first, so I bought a Selective Trigger assembly for it which is included.  Next, there is a set of replacement springs and firing pins, with wrench just in case they are needed in the middle of a competition. There is a Release Trigger Hook and spring so the standard trigger can be converted to a release trigger.  Finally, there is the original Trap Stock with an Edwards Recoil Reducer inside, and the original forearm.
