    I'm thinking about buying a Beretta DT-10 top combo 32in. over and under and 34in. top single and was looking to get some opinions on them. I know they don't make them any more so it would have to be a used one. Any opinions good or bad from people that have owned one would be greatly appreciated. thanks, Dale

    You should be able to do a search and get lots of feedback. This question comes up frequently. They are great guns. I have two. Leo Harrison III shoots one. Solid and dependable.

    Been shooting mine 10 years now, i have the unsingle 34/32 combo, gun is built like a tank and just as reliable if you shoot alot it will i believe last forever, in 10 years ive only changes 1 cocking rod spring 5 buck and back out shooting, the lock style cant wear out, some of the othe posts say there flat shooting my unsingle but you can adjust it to shoot anywere, Only real drawback i have found is it is a heavy gun so if you like a lighter gun you may not like it. I lost track of how many rounds ive run thru this gun.

    John G. You may have to look a long time to find a barrel for sale and it will probably not be cheap! Great gun though, John T.

    They could very well be the best assembly line type gun on the made. While I replace a couple primary parts every year for peace of mind there is not much that I know of. I have two combos. Probably the best buy in used guns out there (jmo).

    Great solid gun! I have an unsingle. Finally, after 5000 rds the action will slooooly open by gravity alone. Seems to be an easy shooter, with little felt recoil. Got back into the game a year ago after a 20 yr lay off. Wasn't a good shooter then and not great now, but Just had a release done and I am running about 96% average. Derek

    I bought a sporting version about 9 months ago that had O/U 32" barrels. I wanted the sporter because I was going to partake in sporting clays. All I had before this was trap guns. I needed something flatter shooting. So this sporter was perfect. Then I found out that you can pretty much interchange the barrels and I bought a brand new top single barrel that Joel Etchen had listed on his website under used guns. The barrel clipped right on with no fitting required. I am set now. I take one gun case out of the safe and I can shoot singles, handicap, doubles and sporting clays all with the same gun.

    I bought the gun used and one of the inertia springs broke right after buying it. I bought some replacement springs from Brownells and replaced them myself. I love the drop out trigger feature and bought a spare trigger on trapshooters that I can swap out in case I ever break another interia spring. You need to know that if that spring breaks, you are done with that event if you are shooting doubles. The gun won't re-set itself after firing.
