Beretta Extrema II wont fire ...BRAND NEW!!!

Postby matt-stark00 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:08 pm

I just got a new in the box Extrema II for a bonus at work, I have tried to fire it 3 diff times and figured out the firing pin isnt hitting the primer, cant even see the pin pop when you dry fire it. I took it to where it came from and they dont even know how to work on the damn thing. They did put a allen wrench in the pin hole and fired it and the wrench hit the ceiling!!! So of course he said it was good. They are a half rate gun dealer and not really a smith. I just mad!!! Big guided hunt for ducks this weekend and it doesnt fire. We only have 2 weeks of season left, and wanna hunt with it. May just go trade it. Any help?

Read the manual take it apart and CLEAN IT especially around firing pin. May have grease packed in it. Don't trade it. It is a good gun

Are you letting the bolt slam forward when you load a round into the chamber? It almost sounds like the bolt is not closing fully.

Fixed it finally!!! I checked the O-ring in the arm again with a light and found it out of place!!!! Missed it before!!! Thank you guys for trying to help!!! I get to hunt in the morning with it and we are covered up with ducks and its the last 2 weeks!! 36 out of our pit this morning and I missed it. Thanks again.

That damn o-ring got me too. The other o-ring in the gas cylinder might give you some trouble too. The one on mine would burn, or deteriorate, or something? It would make it really dirty in the gas cylinder. I ended up just throwing the gas cylinder o-ring out, runs fine with out it. FYI.

Great gun, I love it. Especially in the salt water, thing is so resistant to corrosion it is just awesome.

Glad you fixed it. :thumbsup:

My initial response was going to be, "Did you make sure the firing pin was installed?" :lol3:
