  1. hi guys, been a while since i have posted but have been uber busy with college, work, women etc. anyway my beretta 20g barrel selecor is loose and doesnt seem to engage well. sometimes when i fire it flips onto the other barrel. the gun was new in jan. is this a problem i can get a local gunsmith to fix or do i need to post it back to beretta. if the latter is the case how do i go about it? any help appreciated
  2. i have some old carts which are a bit rusted and i dod not think are safe to shoot. i want to throw them away but im not sure which is the best way to dispose of them as i dont think the bin man will take em. Any advice appreciated

    i need a beretta choke key as my mate has lost his. its for a 12g 687 o/u. if any one has one they dont need anymore or would like to sell please could you let me know. cheers jim
  4. cheers guys, i must commend you all for the help. its nice being part of a forum where you receive such helpful and friendly advice from knowledgable shooters. i will let you know how i get on
  5. the butplate is the one which it comes with, i fitted it because i need the extra length so it fits better. so i can have the gun replaced if needed. i'll see how it goes.
  6. my dad has been shooting for about 20 years but saying that he may not be releasing the trigger. he is a different build t me and maybe the way he mounts the gun as it is longer doesnt alow the recoil to hit the adjuster properly. i will ring him later and see if it has happened again. cheers jim
  7. fairll be usin it on sat game shooting so if it gives me any grief il give the shop a buz. you had a good season teal, i suppose you have been off grouse shooting with the gentry again p.s tenbears like the highlander, nice loking gun mate.
  8. the shop i got it from is f in miles away from me so i might put soem more rounds through and see if it settles down, if it doesnt ill send it back. im hoping its just because its new, as afore mentioned my mate had the same roblem but his is fine now.
  9. the old man has just rang me and said that the second barrel did not fire on my less than 3 weeks old beretta sp 20g. a friend of mine had a similer problem with his when it was new, is it st that the recoil berell selector thingy is new and needs wearing in or is it something more serious. i used it last sat and it was fine so iam a bit worried. i did fit a slightly longer but pad to it last sat, could that be the problem. any help appreciated. cheers jim
  10. the bloke txtr me to day saying to leave the 25quid at a mutual friend and never to i quote "fone phone me again". i think ill txt him 2moz and say no chance. and he said in was taking the ****, ****!
  11. recoil is no issue, just want to ensure clean kills. as far as i was aware most birds you can take with a 12 you can take with a 20g, some ofthe best pigeon and game shots i have seen use 20g.
  12. thanx mike that is much appreciated. miss birds,me, finest game shot in the country doncah know
  13. yes mike it was, i know this is why i was shocked when he mentioned these things, as i know any you would have mentioned them and you seemed like a honest gent and are a respected member on here. so it seems he was making things up. i coming to think he was after a cheap buy to sell on. the ejectors seemed fine to me aswell but i only shot it a few times at the gun club so never fired the barrels individually. the gun when i sold it was the same apart from an added but pad as when you left it with me, so you can confirm it was in sound nick. if he gives me more greif would it be possible for him to confirm with cotswold gun shop that it was sound p.s. how are you getting on with the lanber and hope you are having a good season. thanx jim
  14. thats what i thought to, but he is mates with the shoot captain so i didnt want to cause tension but at the same time i didnt want to be taken for a ride. i would by the gun back but cant afford it but at the mo (im a student). my dad offerd to as he thinks the guy is being a jerk aswell. my dad is a car dealer though but an honest one and he agread with you lot, if its sold as seen then its a done deal. i can just see him sending me the bill for a full service done by aya for like £200, i guess i'll drop £20 in the envelope with a note saying heres my contributation and send it back. thanx for the help guys you have put my mind a rest, i will enjoy my shooting on sat now without worrying. thanx again jim
  15. basically lads i sold a guy a aya no.4 that i wanted £200 for as it was in vg nick when he looked at the gun he said that the stock had been refinished and the barrels reblued, both things i wasnt aware of and that there was some play in the action which to be honest was negligble and again i wasnt aware of as i had only fired it a few times. i thought as he is an expert he knows far more than me and he offered me £100 i said fair enough. this is where it get complicated, he was doing a deal for me through a gunshop, a part ex on my fabarm beta lux which was a year old and in near enough mint condition against a beretta 687 20g fc. he got me £750 px and i paid £200 on top coming to £950 for the new beretta. £100 of this came from the aya. i thought nice beretta is a fair price and i got a good px on the fabarm. anyway he rings me a few days later saying the ejectors are playing up on the aya (see below) and he wanted another £50 off me. again this was something i wasnt aware of as i had only shot a few rounds and fired both barrels whenever i shot it. this basically means he would have been getting what was in my opinion a very nice little gun for £50. i said i would have to think about it as i consider done deal sold as seen but as he did me a favour on the beretta i said look i'll pay £25 he said that was taking the ****, that he would get it repaired and send me the bill and hung up before i could say anything else like i'll give you all your money back and i will keep the gun. just checked the shop which the beretta came from and they go out at £950 anyway so he didnt get me it cheaper and from what i can gather £750 is a fari sh price on a near mint fabarm beta lux. as they go out at £1200 new. now guys i have the below problem, am i being a *** or is he? am i being tight or is he trying to blag me? to be honest i hate falling out with people and it has upset me a bit. does anyone know how much it costs to have ejectors repaired/adjusted on an aya No. 4. the problem is something like this: if you fire both barrels they both eject as they should, if you fire one barrel they both eject, and if you just fire the other apperentl neither ejects. i would have thought its an adjustment to the springs and was prepared to pay about £25 but he thinks that is tking the ****, he wanted 50 originally but now he says he will get it done and send me the bill. thing is i know he has mates in the trade so it will probably cost him f all. any help appreciated,
  16. cheers lads i have some express and gamebore to try now, and i am going to get some eley vip and grand prix to try.
  17. hi guys, been a while since i last posted but have been mad busy over xmas working, drinking, etc the usual. anyway have just got a new beretta silver pigeon 20g and as i have not shot 20g before i am unsure as to whch cart is the best. i know some people on here use them so i thought id ask to see what the general concencous was. will be used for everything. hope everyone is having a good season. jim
  18. fair play lads, impressive bag for one night B)
  19. still for sale, consider swop for decent o/u 20g
  20. yes indeed £425, give us a call for more details
  21. if you search through the forums you will find loads of info regerding, choke, barrel length, type etc. in short chokes effect the spread of the shot that is fired, a tight choke will keep the pattern tighter at longer ranges where as a more open choke will allow greater spread. barrel length is up to prefference but a 28" is the most popular for all riund use. if you are looking to use the gun for game then you need a side by side or an over and under. semis are good guns but i dont think they make an ideal gun for a beginner as it is better to learn how to handle a gun and the safety involved with a break barrel gun. as far as budget its up to you, whether you buy new or second hand is up to you. a new beretta silver pigeon is a great allround gun but if you are looking to buy secondhand then there are pleanty of great guns available, try the for sale section (i have one for sale) seriously though your best to try a few guns and see what configuration you like the best.
  22. ok the browining is no longer for sale but the aya is, £425 cant say fairer than that
