Beretta Silver Snipe?

3 posts in this topic

I was given my Grandfather's 1963 Beretta Silver Snipe. Does any one have any information about this type of gun? I know that I can not shoot steel through it, but what about Bismuth or any of the other non-toxic shot out there?

I would like to continue to hunt with this gun. But with the non-toxic regulation for hunting on public land, am I only going to be able to use this gun on preserve hunts?

Any information about this type of gun and the type of shot that I can shoot through it would be great.

Mr. B

Don't take opinions on using this gun for non tox shot. Find out from a knowledgeable gun smith, Or contact Beretta via their web site and shoot em an e-mail. You do not want to chance wrecking your grandfathers gun!!! I agree that these firearms should be kept in use if they are capable of handling today's loads. Goood luck, Brent

Brent,

I have contacted Beretta, their response was no steel, but did not mention any of the other no-tox shot.

When I got their customer satisfaction survey after their response, I filled it out asking about other types of no-tox shot. Hopefully they will reply.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
