Beretta A301 help needed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I posted a few pics of a problem with my Beretta A301 semi-auto a while ago.  It's been sitting in the cabinet for a while, but I've finally pulled it out and taken a better look. I think the problem is that the latch plate is sticking in the "up" position, as the carrier release spring plate can't recess back into the action fully. When I take a closer look, I think the spring (part number 101a in the picture) is broken, and is sticking under the release plate.

I've driven out the small pin under the lever (item 103a) but does anyone know how to remove the lever pivot pin 102a ? ?  does it drive out from the top or from the bottom side ?

 

Any tips welcome, thanks

I've done this before on a couple of Berettas … if I remember well .. I just poked it out from whatever side was easiest … the part 103a is key in securing it ….

Hi Smokersmith, thanks for the info. 103a is a small spring dowel pin, i've tapped that out. I tried to tap out the latch pivot pin from the bottom, ie from the side I just removed pin 103a from and it felt pretty solid, but I may have used too big a drift.. At the top side, the pivot pin sits flush to the action, you can hardly see the head of it.

 

I think what's happened is that the spring has broken one of the legs off, so when you squeeze in the side button, the back of the latch plate fouls on the spring as it's moved to one side, whereas the spring should sit in the middle and the latch plate presses down on either side. The net result is that the loading slide sticks in the up position, as the spring can't pull it past the slightly protruding latch plate. I've tried to show this in the bottom left corner of my photo above.

 

Thanks

Hi, got it out... tapped it out from the top down, towards the roll pin I removed.  The spring was indeed broken 🙂  Should be a cheap easy fix.
