    Considering a trap model Beretta auto-loader. It would be nice to have the adjustable stock, stock shims and any other adjustments. Their models confuse me as to which has what features; Urika? Teknys? etc. Any recommendations and personal experience with these models appreciated.................Jim

    All Beretta 390 and 391's stocks adjust for cast and drop by the use of shims...a nice feature. The Teknys has fancier wood, removable ribs and the Trap version is available with an adjustable comb....but the comb hardware is junk.

    I think that you are best off with a Urika with a fixed rib and have an adjustable comb installed by someone who knows what they're doing.

    Picture time, this is a local Sporting clays shooter's Urika:

    A quality aftermarket comb is far better than the factory unit.

    Tron,

    I have seen some of your stock work and I could say "you know what you are doing" every thing is first class.

    TRON, do you sell your hardware for DIY install? I have a stock I would like to put a adj comb on. This stock is not worthy of a perfect install. I have no fear in doing it myself.

    digger, thanx for the compliment!

    Maclellan1911, I use DeVault hardware. I feel that it's the best available and I like dealing with Dennis...he's a class act. I just wish I knew 1/4 of what he does about machining and finishing. Email me and we'll talk.

    docjim, I own an AL391 Urika Trap, non-adjustable comb stock at this time. I love the gun. I normally shoot a Browning BT-99 or a Citori Trap. I bought the Beretta auto-loader for when my shoulder acts up and starts to hurting bad. It is a very soft shooter. It was a perfect fit for me right off the shelf. I would recomend it, if it fits you well. I have good looking wood on mine. Appears to look like tiger stripes. After I knew the fit was good I held out until I found a good looking stock. For the most part I only shoot it occasionally but have no regrets on buying it for how I want to use it. I'm seriously considering buying the Urika Sporting and using it for clays and to hunt with. I could be wrong but I think it would be good for both. The trap version is great but mine doesn't have the feel and l.o.p. that I like to hunt with. My trap version does shoot high, it's not a flat 50/50 shooter.
