I would love to hear about users experience on this piece. Reliability and things to watch for.


I haven't had a great deal of experience with the Beretta. We would like to know more as to what type of experiences you are inquiring about?

I've just purchased one of these and am lukewarm about it. I've not yet fired the piece, and am trying to determine for myself if I should keep it or trade it off.

I have heard both good and bad summaries of it. I was hoping to hear from someone who has used it extensivly, say in class or in LE.

I have a Scattergun Tech. Rem. 870 that I like a lot.

What is the grapvine's wisdom on the Berreta?

I guess I can't say specifically anything bad about the Beretta. I believe it is more expensive than an 11-87, and I'm not sure it is worth the difference. It is not as common to work on, and the parts are a bit more difficult to come by.
I don't see it commonly used in military or law enforcement. See lots of Remingtons, Benelli and Mossbergs.

Hope that helps
