Disaster with the auto today

Recommended Posts

Went out shooting clays today with the beretta 303, 3rd shot in and had a miss load so I thought but no it turns out the magazine tube has broken in two at the crimp. The question I'm asking is do you think it is a viable repair bearing in mind that it is 35 years old and not worth much more than £ 300 and also can a crimped tube be bought ?

I would have thought that you could buy a new tube fairly easily and running a crimp around the tube is a five minute job, just make sure the guy doing the crimp knows what he is doing.    I had one do it with a standard wheel where the wheel needed to be more rounded, it made a sharp angle and that failed as well. Probably the same problem with yours.
