    I saw Wally aka ACSS 30391 posted today so decided to post my 30391 also. Wally has help me with parts and information on most of the Berettas I build as it is a hobby for me and I like the guns as shooters also. Here are just a few I had in the shop today.

    I just purchase this wood on TS.com Anton/Hilmer always like their stocks have several on different guns. Got this receiver from Wally can't wait to shoot this gun with this wood. I made my own add-on rib got the barrel from Wally also.

    Beautiful guns. I lament selling my 303 30" fixed choke trap model. Darn, cost me all of $300.00 back in '91, out the door. I also bought a 28" field model with Mobil Chokes that day...I still have that 28" field model and will never give it up. It cost $325.00 out the door back then. I sold the 303 trap for $350.00 later that year!

    There was no crystal ball in the clubhouse that day!

    At least I have a 390 "Wendell Special" 32" trap that I will never sell...

    Could the 300 series Beretta, pre-391, perhaps becomming the '55-'57 Chevys of sporting autoloaders? A little more time will tell...they are great!
