Beretta shot gun info wanted

Question

TTfromBlaine

ok guys I need a little help here, I'm considering buying a Beretta AL 391 Teknys on monday its used but less then a box of shells thru it,but just out of curiousity I went looking around and seen some others but a couple had pitting or some type of blemishs on the reciever which makes it very ugly. does anybody know if this was a problem that Berreta had or just lack of care??

P.S. Tom from Blaine is back. grin.gif (the divorce thing had me on the ropes for a couple of rounds thats why I missed some of the get togethers this year) frown.gif

I have not owned a Teknys but I have two other Beretta shotguns and I would have to say that the pitting would be from a lack of care.

IMO Berettas are some of the finest fire arms there are.

Thanks caseymcq, I was really hoping to hear that, from someone other than an employee where I want to buy the gun at, I've owned a few differnt makes and models in the past(all pumps) and have always liked the berreta's. didnt plan on spending that much grin.gif but got tired of trying to figure out which camo gun was mine lying in the back of the truck grin.gif

Welcome back Tom. I wouldn't shy away from a Beretta.

Any gun will rust if not stored properly. Vinyl gun cases whether they be a hard or soft case won't let air flow so storing a gun in them isn't recommended. Bringing in a gun out of the cold and into a warm house will cause condensation. I leave the gun in the case till it warms up then uncase it and oil it. Leave the case wide open to dry any moister that might be in there. Oiling before and after use along with periods in between storage time and definitely if the barrel has been touched.

Thanks S.T., also for the info on the vinyl gun cases,I was fairly sure that was what I was seeing but not completely, now as far as cases go I was thinking going "retro" like the old material like on a carhart jacket but nicely padded on the inside possibly with some of that new micro fibre stuff inside, anybody seen anything like that or have recommendations, any and all would be helpful.

I have that very gun in a trap model with a 6 oz shock absorber in the stock. Sweet shooting and I have had no problem with it at all. As mentioned before, any gun will rust if not taken care of. Finger prints and sweat is often times one of the worst things on a gun.

the type of gun case your are looking for sounds like a boyt case. The outside material is like a carhartt and is padded and has a heavy duty brass zipper and a leather strap and leather end. I have a benelli for sale in this forum and in the picture is a boyt case.They are a little pricy at around 80.00.

Well I finally had time to take it apart and get somewhat familiar with the pieces, oil it up and see my self hunting with it grin.gif now I just need to get out and shoot a couple boxes of shell thru it,( I did'nt know about breaking in a auto gun )at least thats what I've been told. I ended up with an Allen case that has a material that I was looking for in camo and its heavley padded also has a shoulder strap. I guess that marcum will have to wait till next year grin.gif thanks for all the input guys...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald
