AL 391 Urika 2 broken bolt handle

Postby FowlOffspring » Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:16 pm

I was out this weekend hunting ducks and the end of my bolt handle was somehow broken off. I don't recall dropping it or anything like that but I'm sure that's how it happened. I purchased the gun last October (13 months ago) and of course never filled out the warranty since I was always busy with school. Anybody know of anything that I can do? Or does anyone know how to go about getting the new part?

brownell's most likely has them. You could call beretta, but most likely will take more time to get your part, or they will simply tell you to check with brownell's.
You should be able to search AL391 U2 on the brownell's site, and find a schematic parts list. They usually have a good selection of beretta parts in stock.

Cole guns sells almost all beretta parts, try their website they should have it.

Bolt handle? You mean the pin that you pull on when you re-load?
Take a picture of what's broken and post it.
Brownell's has what you need and can send it quickly.
They even have the parts schematics to help you but beware...the way they translated the parts names from Italian to English is done in a strange and literal way that's misleading. Make sure and call them and speak to a technician that can help you get the RIGHT part ordered.

Call Cole Gunsmithing they are great folks and are 391 experts they will have it in stock, while your at it order a set of there Gas Valve Springs, It is a set of two for around $8.00, one is (Red) softer than original for use with heavy loads and the other is (Blue) heavier for Super light target loads. I put the soft spring in my 391 Sporting and there was BIG difference in how soft the gun shoots, with 3" Steel it felt like a whole new gun! and your gun will last longer since it bleeds off the gas a little quicker and keeps the gun from beating itself up with Waterfowl loads.

Good Luck, Hat

So I don't know if it matters, but I have decided to get a Ballistic Speacialties after market cocking handle in the stainless finish. Every place that I looked didn't have a fatory cocking handle and the next choice besides an aftermarket part was to buy a spare parts kit and I wasn't about to do that.

For factory parts this is the best place I have found http://www.gunpartscorp.com/ Brownells is a great choice too or GunBroker.com

So here is what it looks like with the new cocking handle on it.I kind of like it and it sure makes it a hell of a lot easier to open the breech on the gun. What do you guys think?

I dig it....it's the bomb for sure. it looks smooth enough that you will be able to slide your beretta in and out of your gun case without tearing ..or getting caught on.. the lining of the gun case. I personally have some really cheap gun cases. even the bead on the end of the barrel will get hung on my cheap case...going to throw away that case...right now.

Yea I like it a lot. The only thing I dont like about it though, is how far out it sticks. I think Ill use this one when I shoot trap and Im hunting upland birds because I dont want the same thing to happen to this one.
