antman1991: Thanks for replying. My gun is a 2006 model and looks identical to yours in
terms of the engraving and general color of the wood so im guessing it's
oiled to. I'm hoping so anyway
danebrewer10: I got it for £1225 as supposed to the £1550 list price as it was a straight
t bee: @panicmonkey9 its a gun that it generally used as n all rounder, guns
designed specificly for clays or trap generally have a large rail on the
top barrel im pretty sure the silver pigeon has 3 inch chambers wat on
earth would you use a 3 inch magnum cartridge on a clay for?
Ben Carver: I've got a brewing citori lightining gunna have to get a summer job to
afford this :(
Duncan Buchan: sorry to ask but what cartridges do you use
Talmadge Fisher: are clay guns heavier? Why?
MsHuntsman: cheers m8 do you shoot without ear plugs or with them and is the chokes
fixed or changeable
jimmyjack900: As far as ordering one is concerned, is it worth going to GMK an buying
directly in store (quite a drive from devon), or are there any cheaper
Zach McKenna: hey what is the FULL model name of this Beretta
www121www: how much u get it for bro?
danebrewer10: I should think that they have used some different finished over the years,
these beretta OU guns look almost identical to 10 year old versions, so
your stock, as it seems to be an older gun (as ytou say it is pretty dinged
up) may be different, but mine I think is an oil finish, as it becomes less
lusterous with time and I just rub in a bit of stock oil every now and then
to keep it maintained...
Alec D.: How does this compare to a Browning Citori?
malcomandjon423: how much is that?
fluffypieceoffluff: just bought 1 2 day i have a urika 391 and its good ya cant bate beretta
wit a 32 inch stick
DemonicWeapons: @caiosantosrds Quite a bad comment dude! I mean, double barrel, generally
means 2 shots, you don't have a single barrel where you can fire 20 shells
josh blunt: i just purchased this gun from a friend ...its a brilliant reliable gun.
...only difference is i paid 500 quid for mine. ..he owed me a favour.
Caio N: @danebrewer10 I'm sorry ,but i don't have so much time to see your full
nhrapro840: @danebrewer10 i have a 33 year old browning cetori that i bought from an
old gunsmith. he told me to never snap it shut. the action was like new
when i bought it 13 years ago and it is still the same today. to close it
like that was a little bothersome at first but now it is second nature. i
guess i don't know if it really matters but i always did what he told me
and my gun action is still tight today. you have a very nice piece there.
caleb5665: how much was it nice shotgun would love to have it
Duncan Buchan: thanks try victory starlight 32g there hard hitting
danebrewer10: erm what?
lemony snickets: I went clay pigeon shooting today for the first time, and tried half a
dozen different shotguns and this model was the best gun by far. It has
great balance and weight and has given me the bug for more. cheers, chris.
danebrewer10: what do you mean stuffing up?
danebrewer10: @SupremeAmerican it's a nice gun but you shuold see some of the higher
grades! my ultimate gun would be a best quality sidelock......
bass4life1000: @DemonicWeapons good point but did you consider semi automatic 1 barrel and
can hold 4 rounds unless you add a magazine extension (which is illegal
here in aus) then you can fit up to 10 rounds in some guns
danebrewer10: @caiosantosrds huh? everybody has a spare 10 minutes in the evening, after
all, you had the time to reply to this comment! : )
TheEnglishRedneck45: Interesting that you too had an issue with the safety. I was shooting the
686E recently and the safety on that one was a massive pain. It hurt to
use, and was incredibly stiff and sharp. Poor show from Beretta.
danebrewer10: @fishblade2 clay guns are heavier and have more inertia, that is, it is
harder to get the gun moving from a standstill, so more of the force of the
recoil is absorbed by the weight of the gun, versus a lighter gun
antman1991: What type of oil do you use on your stock?
granputon01: I just bought one Mate !
tariqwahl: The camera quality is awesome. Thanks for sharing. Happy holidays to you
Madcc6492: lol "its got pretty good wood." hahaha i laughed so hard at that. good
review man. id love to have one of these
danebrewer10: @nhrapro840 yeah someone else mentioned that, but there are hundreds of
these guns in shooting schools that don't recieve nearly as good care as
mine, but they keep on going, it is a beretta after all! but even so, I've
not heard of it ever being an issue, I like to know that my gun is has
snapped shut when I've tried shutting the gun quietly doing what you say, I
have had the top lever not come across fully, I just prefer to snap it shut
gently, no point in beasting it...
CLamontNI: Beretta silver pigeon is hard to beat in my opinion, better than any semi
auto i find, mainly because of the cleaning. MY friend got a browning
double barrel with a custom spring stock and its recoil is nothing, not to
mention the weight is feather light but he uses it for big big competitions
Jonathan Kelly: it was bout 1200 id say
cac82622: Excellent explanation, and it start me to think why trap guns always fire
the lower barrel first then than upper barrel, I mean, we shoot rising
targets so it should be logical to shoot with the top barrel first...
danebrewer10: @duncanfr11 no, I don't like them, for me they cover up too much of the
target and are a bit distracting, some like them but I don't
James Darby: ive got this gun
danebrewer10: no 'cause this gun doesn't have the q-stock taking the action off means
taking the recoil pad off, doing this repeatedly will remove the thread in
the holes for the screws that hold the recoil pad on so it'll just fall off
given time. with rifles, I probably wouldn't bother unless it got wet/damp,
just give it a good dry out & oiling & put it back in the stock less of an
issue if it were synthetic, you'd have to be aware of a possible POI
change, I might take it out of the stock 1 or 2 times PA
danebrewer10: @TheEnglishRedneck45 well I have goten used to it, I now push more down on
the safety and less forward, so not pushing with the "heel" of my thumb and
I ahven't had any issues since then really, You'll get used to it no doubt.
MsHuntsman: hi mate how much was this? not being rude about asking but i have just
ordered one of these in 12 ga just wondered so i can compare prices nice
vid btw can you do video of shooting the gun m8 only a suggestion
sprocker321: Top barrel first, because the bottom cartridge might get stuck and its
quicker to load the top barrel??????? You have to fully open the gun for
both the ejectors to work, so theres no benefit what so ever to using the
top barrel first!!
antman1991: hey mate do you know what the finish of this stock is? i have one exactly
the same but its pretty marked and was wondering if it was poly, varnish,
danebrewer10: cheers! no probs, same to you!
neri5555: I'm italian...Beretta is very good and long-lasting in the time. VERY GOOD
GUN...PERAZZI and BERETTA the best in the word
danebrewer10: @YenkoSuperChevy no, it's steel just nickel plated, I don't think nickel
allow yould be strong or hard enough, especailly if you shove a heavy 3"
load down there!
danebrewer10: Definitely with, you'd be stupid to not use them, a few times is not too
much of an issue but you can get tinnitus that lasts for a few days from
not very much, chokes are covered in part 2.
panicmonkey9: that is a clay gun
danebrewer10: @YenkoSuperChevy no idea, it does tarnish a bit if you leave it un oiled to
a sort of brownish colour, oil it (lightly) and the silver comes right back.
danebrewer10: @duncanfr11 it doesn't really matter, but I use Eley Hi-flyer or Grand prix
No6 30gm for rough shooting and pigeons, whatever is cheapest for clay
cartridges, or Eley First 28gm no8 and for charlie- 50gram BBs through 1/2
choke and 36gm AAA through 3/4 choke
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
