Beretta AL391 Urika??

Postby A5Gunner » Sun Sep 29, 2013 2:01 pm

I've got a guy that wants to trade me one of these in camo. What is the story with these? Good, bad whatever. How does it differ from say the A391 extrema or others like it. I am not all that familiar with all the 390 variants. How much is it worth used in very good condition??

The Urika is one of the best 3" gas autos of all time, They are very reliable and very easy to trick out thanks to thousands of Clays shooters all sorts of modifications have been developed for them!

One of the best autos ever made. I use mine for competition skeet in dbls and 12 ga events. Been using it for 10 years and
no problems what so ever. One off the best balanced gun out there. Never shot heavy loads in it, only 2 3/4 " target loads.
have had over 1000 rounds through it with out a cleaning. It has over 15,000 rounds fired in it and no problems. Only addition
is a 10 oz magazine cap weight so it matches weight of my k gun.
Targets-tequila- trailers-Ahh the skeet life!

I am going to trade for this mostly because it is camo and has a 26 inch barrel. Not so much for duck hunting but it seems like it would make a good turkey gun. I don't own a camo short barreled gun so why not? Might be good in my timber spot for ducks?

Any thoughts about turkey hunting with this?

I've got a 391 urika in the 20g flavor and it's a good gun, never had any issues with it

I own a Urika AL391 Optima model. I believe the optima model has a larger forcing cone. It too has a 26 in barrel. It is a great gun, well made, soft shooting, and very dependable. I used to use it to shoot skeet, and hunt dove . I have my shotguns mostly all fitted with a kick eez pad and by doing that it made the gun even a softer shooter. You cant go wrong owning one. Don't let the 26 inch barrel stop you from using it to Duck Hunt, because it will do the job. I hunt with a 26 inch Remi 11-87 sometimes and it kills ducks. I am not a Turkey Hunter but from what I understand 28 inch and 30 inch barrels are used. I guess you can hunt Turkeys with a 26 inch gun, I'm not positive though. Maybe someone can chime in and give you advice. But what I can attest to is that Beretta is a great gun and you wont be sorry.
Happy Shooting,

I have a couple, 1 used for dove and clays and the other for ducks. I like the Optima choke barrels only because they seem to pattern steel more evenly, not necessarily denser than the Mobil choke barrels.

Depending on the trade, you're getting a great gun.

Most turkey guns have 22" to 24" barrels in my neck of the woods. A 26" will do just fine.

Thanks for clearing up barrel size Aunt Betty, I wasn't sure for I am not a turkey hunter. Now if the OP decides on the gun he will know the Beretta will work for him hunting Turkeys.
