    I got to shoot a Beretta T1 Trap Special the other night at our club and the man that has the gun is wanting to sell the gun. I have never seen a trap gun built like this Beretta. It has a very thin receiver with a lever in front of the trigger guard to break the gun open. It has a 34" barrel that looks about as thick as a pump pipe. It is choked at .036" and it will smoke a target. The gun has some nice engraving on the receiver and the wood is in good shape. What is this gun worth? It has a serial #12 on it. The gun came from an estate sale and I don't think the man had shot this gun very much. By the way,"It does kick". I was thinking about buying the gun to make available to some of the SCTP kids that will be starting their new season this winter. I am not in this to make any money from the gun but to help a kid get a half way decent trap gun to shoot instead of some of the crap I have seen them try to shoot. Some of them are using a Russian trap gun that a local dealer is selling for about $300 and it is nothing but junk. Thanks in advance for any info you can furnish about this gun.

    These guns are, I believe, were made when Garcia was the importer. They took the Beretta single shot action and put on a trap stock and forend, along with a heavy "pipe" like barrel. I had a few of them in the 70's and they sold in the $150-200 range. They are easily worth $3-350 today. A pretty well made gun that is bullet proof!

    Boomer, thanks for the reply. I think the man that is selling this gun wants $295 for the gun and that sounds like a good deal for the condition it is in. It will make some kid a good starter gun.

    Yes, they kick. The same gun with a field stock was marketed as the Galef "Companion", A notch in the forend accomodated the operating lever and the gun folded up completely to fit in a backpack.

    If you look at the hinge area you will see that it was made with econmomy in mind. I question the price, you're getting closer to an 870 or 1100.

    If you like it and can stand the recoil, of course it's your call.

    By the way, a hard kicking gun will turn a youth starting out into a bowler.

    If the gun kicks why would you want a new "kid" shooter to start with a kickin gun?

    BTW ... if the dealer in town is selling the Remington Spartan single shot sporting/trap gun for around $300 what is wrong with that? That gun is perfect for a kid who may or may not continue with the sport. Not every kid deserves or can afford a $1400 for a new BT99 to start with and not every kid will continue to shoot ... you should be glad that a local dealer is even supporting them by giving them a deal at all ... heck you should be in there thanking the dealer for even helping the families get a weapon for there children.
