    Beretta 391

    I was thinking of looking into a Beretta 391 for Trap shooting, and "heard" that they may be discontinuing production of these? Not interested in starting a rumor (plenty of those around), just looking to be informed.

    They have been discontinued. They have been replaced by the A400Xcel. So far
    there is only the sporting version but a parallel target model was shown at the SHOT show in Las Vegas last month.

    There are still plenty of 391's around and you can even find the older 390's and 303's. Support for the 391 will be around for a long time.

    I wouldn't hestiate to buy a 391 if you find one you like.

    Actually they have not been discontinued

    Several models still made and were at the shot show

    The Extrema 2 is discountinued but some were still shipping

    One can probably predict that 391s will all be replaced but weirder things have happened

    They are still in the 2012 catalog. Click on the link, and call their customer service # and ask them.

    I have a complete AL 391 Urika in the case with 2 stocks that I would sell if anyone is interested ... If no body is interested I will keep it and shoot it at skeet or Sporting Clays once I am able to get back to shooting ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bruce Em,

    The 303 I had shot about like every other semi-auto shotgun.

    However, they have a longer stock bolt hence the stock can only be shortened so many inches.

    Discoverd this fact when I wanted to shorten the stock for my son.
