    You don't give much information...

    What gauge? What barrel length? Vent rib?? Single selective trigger?? Ejectors versus extractors?

    It is a Beretta so it should be a good gun. They were made from 1955 to 1967, so how much wear is on the gun now??

    Blue book goes from 450 to 2,150 depending on grade and configuration...

    They are good quality, but a bit heavy for a lot of carrying, and usually fixed choked too tight for upland work. They can be opened up but if you need to use steel that also may be a problem.

    I fired one that belonged to a fellow skeet shooter back in the '60s. As I remember, it had a relatively sharp comb and kicked like a mule with skeet loads. Ron

    My shooting buddy had one for a short period. I was less than impressed with the Snipe and it seems Beretta was trying to make a very inexpensive entry level O/U. He paid about $300 bucks for it, so its not the worst gun for the money I have seen. Parts are NON-EXISTENT and the way I understand what he said is there are no interchangeable parts with other Berettas. I believe it was choked Mod/Full. May or may not be what your wanting.

    I have a nice little 20 gauge. Nice pointer and light weight.

    I bought one new about 1968 for $198, because I could not afford a Browning Superposed for $400. It was a 20 gauge, 3", M/F, 28" barrels, nonselective single trigger, extractors only. I shot a lot of pheasants with it in Michigan in the mid 70s, and traded it on an 870 TB around 1977. I still have the 870, but wish I still had the Beretta. I bought a new Citori 20 gauge around 1980 for about $435, and still have it, but would trade it in an instant for my old Silver Snipe.
