    I bought a used Beretta 391 Teknys with a removeable rib.. The first round of 100 clays I shot the rib flew off 3 times.. Is this common for these?? It looks like the slide bar that locks the rib onto the barrel slides over the top of the receiver on recoil and releases the rib.. does anyone have an proven fix for this problem.. I don't really want to lock it into place permanently in case I want to change the rib at some point..
    Thanks

    call beretta service. they fixed mine for free even though it was outside of the warranty and the whole deal only took a week. downside is that they want the whole gun, not just the barrel, so it costs a few bucks to get it there, but they ship it back. good luck with it

    Don't worry about it, Beretta customer service says it's normal...
