    There are no parts that I know of that you should have on hand. I would buy one of those good $75 cleaning kits for a 391 and an assembly/disassembly guide.
    Parts can be purchased right from Beretta or several other sources. Coles gunsmithing in Maine is a good source.

    I own (2) 391's, a Urika Trap Optima and a Ukika 2 Sporting Optima. I've kept my eyes open and have picked up a spare new style piston and a forend retaining nut cheap. I havn't had to use them yet but I bought them for the ease of cleaning. I know I over clean my Berettas but in the long run it beats the heavy crud build up. The key to good proper cleaning of the 391's is a few somewhat specialty tool like O-ring picks, a good set of off-set snap ring pliers, a set of brass punches, and some small basic hand tools. Pick up Seamus's book on the "391" it is a good reference point. The factory manual ain't sh!^ compared to his. If you have any mechanical skills the 391 is not hard to keep clean and disassemble and reassemble properly.

    Maybe a set of hammer braces and a linkage rod....but, that's about it. The new piston design seems to be trouble free, so no need for a spare I would assume. I'd get a can of Breakfree CLP and shoot the gun "wet" if I were you. Time spent at the patterning board would be time well spent with that gun. Find what ever cast and drop you require with the shims/washers and go from there.

    Tron nailed it from my years of experience shooting the Beretta autos.

    So far, the only thing I have needed to keep my 391 running is more ammo and an occaisional cleaning. Zero broken parts in about 20K rounds.

    If you are really remote though, take Tron's advice.

    I would add that you should attempt to take it apart once before you shoot it.

    I shot mine a few hundred rounds before breaking it down the first time and I didn't think I was going to get the trigger assembly out.

    Enjoy,

    thanks for your advice tron and others where can i purchase those parts, i am a seasoned shooter of 30+ years and used a remington 1100 and a winchester super x with great success but as we had to hand in all our semi autos 10years ago i have had to stick with my k80s and brownings looking forward to using a auto again, but i have broken so many 1100s and super x parts here would be a nighmare hence a very expencive 391 and a year to licence it!! ( $4600.00 aust )and thats a standard new 391 tenkneys trap!!!at this price it had better shoot and clean it self!!!!!

    I shot a 391 for a season. Hornady gun cleaner and dry lube was all I ever needed, even with the old style piston. Good Luck

    Listen, listen, listen to Tron......I shoot nothing but Beretta 390 & 391 and what he mentioned, are the only things I've had break. I also add a drop of oil to all moving, metal to metal parts===less parts broken and break free is all I use.....GOOD LUCK
