    I have a 391 with about 6,000 rounds through it...last sat I went to shoot and out of the blue the gun just wouldn't fire,tonight I take it apart and everything looks fine but the bolt. The piece that moves on the top of the bolt is bent and worn badly, it is not allowing the fireing pin to move forward when the bolt is in the gun. Has anyone had this problem. What is the best thing to do?

    I agree with setter, I cant imagine that the locking bolt could ever be bent. I bet a piece got broken off, somehow allowing it to sit cockeyed or locked in position. The best answer is a gunsmith.

    Ask Tron....He is an expert on fixing Beretta's.....I guess you practically have to be if you shoot one! Especially the Autoloaders!

    The locking block is a piece that will break. It is easy to replace, but costs
    $50. You generally don't need a gunsmith to fix a 391, that's the beauty of it.
    Tron's the guy, or Seamus O'Caisades on Shotgunworld.com, "I love my Beretta" forum.

    I have broken two locking lugs. they can fail, usually due to very heavy loads but they fail. Easy to replace. You dont need a smith on a 300 - 391 series gun
