    Cleaned completely- doesnt fire but has imprint on the primer- usually happens in the 4th box--= odd isnt that?

    thoughts?

    If I cant figure it out with the comments on here- who should I send it to?

    regards from Iowa

    THe 390/391's have what Berretta calls a trigger brace right and left, it looks to be part #'s 86 and 87 in the owners manual.

    when one or the other cracks or out right breaks the gun is no longer dependable.

    So before you buy springs get these checked out a spring may just one more extra part to carry around when it is the other part that was needed!
