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.

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.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
