Beretta AL391

Postby Chesapeake Boy » Wed Dec 10, 2008 6:40 pm

My wife got an AL391 in.... 2000 or 01...???? I don't remember. It hs always had issues cycling. At first we thought it was packing grease... Not so... She used it primarily for trap...so multiple shot were not a concern.... This summer I put sure shot in it... at first I thought it fixed the problem... but it didn't. It appears as if the bolt binds/rubs on the shell carrier. It will hang up without a shell in the carrier Any ideas? I did see the post on bent Beretta carriers.

BTW- I called Beretta today... after being on hold for 10 minutes, I get a lady that knew nothing,and would only give me the address to send the gun bck to.... :thumbsdown:

Best bet on that is to sent it back if they offered to repair it. when you remove the triggergroup does it still feel like it is binding? does the bolt look or show and signs of binding on the sides or rails?

Without the trigger assembly, the bolt slides perfectly. Beretta didn't offer to fix it... for free... :no:

Do a Google search for Cole Gunsmithing in Maine and send them an e-mail about your problem. They are Beretta experts and usually are very helpful.
