View Full Version : Beretta AL-2 and A301/302/303 interchangeability

April 5, 2006, 10:56 PM
I have a Beretta AL-2 in 12 ga. I know that the barrels are interchangeable between it and the A301/2/3 series. I'm looking at possibly shooting skeet in 20 ga and was wondering if changing my AL-2 over to 20 ga is possible and economical. So, I have a few questions about these shotguns.

Are any of the other parts interchangeable between these shotguns?

Are the 20 ga and 12 gauge receivers on these shotguns different sizes?

Will a 20 ga barrel from an A301/2/3 fit my 12 ga receiver?

Is there a way to change out the bolt on the AL-2 to shoot 20 ga?

Would I need to change out any other parts in addition to the bolt?

Sorry, the receivers are different sized and the 20 ga barrel will not fit a 12 ga frame. Some of the internal parts are interchangable, but if the barrels won't fit, it doesn't make much difference. The al2 is a very nice shotgun, hope you hang on to it.

I have a Baretta AL-1. I would like to replace the barrel with one that has interchangable chokes and vent rib. Will the same barrels mentioned fit the AL-1?
