Urika AL391

Recommended Posts

Hello chaps , I am after some advise, I have an urika AL391 and I am having trouble finding proof marks to see if it is ok for steel, all I can see on the barrel is high tensile steel and the symbols BT inside a square box. I can’t see a fleur de Leigh .

i will try to put a photo up , does anybody know if it will be ok for steel? 

Thanks chaps .

The gun has 3” /76mm chambers but was only standard proofed. You should be ok to shoot steel cartridges with up to 1/2 choke , assuming the gun/barrels are in good order.

Why not phone GMK ?  I have found them to be very helpful whenever I have phoned them.

I second that despite what’s been said about GMK in other posts I have always found them really helpful

Cheers old’un ,says that a code of sp would be on barrel which denotes steel proof so as mine doesn’t have it I guess steel is a no go .

No, it’s the chokes you need to check for the SP, I have an urika AL391 and my chokes have the SP marking but the barrel does not.

On the barrel it should say ‘quenched high tensile steel’

If that is a gun in good condition, I would use any 3" steel cartridge through it. Steel proofing is merely a test, a bit like a car mot.

Would that also be the case if the chokes were not marked SP?

I don't think chokes are relevant. SP markings do not mean steel proof. As far as I am aware, there is no proofing for chokes.

I think that is just what Beretta call some of their chokes.

No, SP on Beretta chokes stands for ‘Steel Proof’

What are they proofed to? They are very much unlikely to be steel proofed.
