I bought a Beretta Gold Technys (the hunting model, not the Sporting Clays version) some months ago, and finally got it to the range yesterday. It's a 20 ga.

It functioned fine, with both Express and low-brass loads, and patterned well, especially with Winchester's AA's with 7.5 size shot. I did need to substitute the optional plastic butt plate for the Gel-Tek one to get a better fit to my physique.

I am very satisfied with it. Should I be reporting this here, or are gun forums just for people who have complaints? :D

Sorry, guys. I just thought that someone should mention a GOOD gun that gave no trouble...

A guy I shoot with occasionally has one. It took a couple hundred rounds for it to settle in but it has been flawless for several thousand rounds since. I shot a couple rounds with it, and liked it a lot. It is a little trimmer in the hand than my Browning Gold Hunter 20, but the balance and swing is virtually identical. REALLY nice guns.

How often does he take it down and clean it internally? (Remove the barrel and forend)

Lone Star, I honestly don't know but I do know it has seen over 500 rounds on several days and was dirty when the day started. If I had to guess I would say he is like most skeet shooters and cleans his gun every couple months or when it gets wet. I clean my Browning every couple thousand rounds whether it needs it or not, and at the beginning of the pheasant season.
