I decided not to shoot anything today: still a few questions to check.
Thanks for the description, but my lak of knowledge of part names has let me down.
I took a picture of my internals, spreading them out along the magazine tube to be more clearly visible.
Looking at the brass ring, with the black steel ring over it, I can see more brass on the side of the bevel, and less on the side of the spring.
To my mind this means that the gun is configured for standard lighter loads at present. Do you agree?
Does the mag-tube where this ring sits need to be lubed?
At the moment it is dry.
Secondly, do you feel that a 28 grain charge in my 16 cartridges is too much for the little Beretta?
I hope not, as it is the only one made by that company so I imagine it is not particularly powerful... Thanks!!
