    Interested in purchasing a 391 trap, any one have any thoughts, ie reliability, value, general experience. Also does anyone have a 391 barrel with an adjustable rib for sale? or do you know who specializes in this type of project, any help would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks.

    I own 4 Beretta semi autos (Use them in the field, for Sporting Clays, Trap & Skeet - 12 & 20ga)... Wouldn't shoot anything else. John

    My vote is for a 3901 as well. I have a 20 GA that I took to Uruguay last summer shot 60 boxes without cleaning and the gun was still shooting without a malfunction.

    My Wife shoots a 391 with fixed Moneymaker Barrel. It shoots very well.

    I don't think they make a 3901 trap. They are field guns made very much like a Benelli. I would not hesitate to buy a 391. Might want to look at the parellel target model. Stock is par, like a k8o. If your head goes back or forth you see the same plane. I use one for sporting clays. Get the gun first before the spending on the adj rib barrel. The stocks are all adj with shims on the 391. Some even have adj combs. You may shoot it well right out of the box. Weighted forend cap seems to help my swing.

    I have owned 302, 303, 390 and 391 all have worked very well, only trouble I have had is the stocke's. They like to crack with a lot of use, other than that I think they are the BEST aotoloader out there.

    I shoot a 391 Urika Trap. I love it. I tried switching to a break-open gun but went back to the Beretta. It shoots soooooo soft.

    There product out of the box is more than adequate. Don't trash the gun because you are a gadget man.

    Good semi-auto but not hands down ahead of other mainline semis.

    I have the 391 Teknys 32" Trap -- I've added the recoil reducer on the fore stock and changed shoulder pads for length of pull and recoil -- I have very good luck with the gun --- However ---- after 100 rounds or so, it starts to bother my neck on the left side (I'm a right hand shooter) -- can't figure that one out yet -- I still think that my old 1100 shoots a little softer --- Bill
