I have a Beretta 92fs pistol that I had to send in once. It took a while to get it back. About two months, but it was everything I could ask for. Still had the Italian frame but had the American slide. Perfect. Four months is a long time but you sent them a gun for repair and they need parts to repair your gun. Yeah it sucks but sometimes that's just how it goes. Have you asked them if they would replace the gun? Remind them that hunting seasons are about to start kicking off and that they have your only gun. :wink:

Why should you be sent a camo gun instead of what you bought ?????

You just be flat unlucky. Every once in awhile, even the best gun makers let a lemon slip through. It's part of the imperfect world we live in.
It may please you to know that you just took one for the huge team of 10000 A300 owners who will now experience a lifetime of trouble-free performance from their Berettas. (or, it may not) :biggrin:

Berretta is well known for slow/poor customer service. Their fanboys hate admit it. I believe the barrel on the Outlander is made in Turkey.

Surprised this wasn't caught by you or the salespeople before you purchased it. :huh:
****'s should have taken the gun and given you another identical gun...no questions asked.

Man that sucks! Mine has been running like a champ. 3 boxes through of mixed 7/8 oz., 1 oz., and 1 1/8 oz. with not a single jam or anything. Cycles fast, recoil is light, points great. Love my A300 Outlander. Let us know how this ends up for you. Hope you get things worked out soon!

I've been taking folks waterfowling virtually daily in season since the mid '80s, and the only gun I've seen a fellow literally chunk in the pond was a Beretta. But from what I've seen of all the makes, if there was no Benelli, I'd be using Beretta.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Beretta from this point on will be having all repairs done thru their authorized repair centers. Cole's is the best one.

Have you ever purchased a gun from ****'s? I would bet dollars to doughnuts there is MAYBE one employee in the entire lodge-of every store, that would even have the slightest clue that the bolt should not have been that stiff, let alone how to even out it together correctly. I know this because I ran the lodge at my local store and litterally had to have a "training session" on every new gun we got in so my sales crew didn't #1 ruin the thing trying to assemble it and #2 they could actually sell the thing and not sound like a complete botard in the process. Seriously, ****'s as a rule is about the worst place to buy a firearm if you are expecting knowlegable staff. Knowledge about sporting goods IS NOT required to work in the lodge at ****'s... :no:

I have a AL300 Silver Mallard I bought used. It had a rusty barrel and the rest of it was in good shape.

I cleaned it up, bought a new barrel from Beretta (got it in 3 days) put a heavy duty recoil spring in it, and now its shooting like a champ.

Haters are gonna hate.

I love my Benelli, but the Beretta is a great gun, too.

Sell that gun and get you a 391

I had to send a pistol back once and it wasn't a hard transaction at all.
