    The gun is a nightmare on break downs.

    I love these. My buddy owns one. I think what he means, when they break... They BREAK! and also keep it clean otherwise after 2,000-3,000 rounds, good luck getting your stuck shell out. Personally i love them, fun to shoot because there is next to no recoil.

    I have not seen one in person but used one's sell fast if the price is right. They have always intrigued me. It's on my list to own one day.

    I have one and it's a great gun, perhaps the softest shooting gun you can own. Breaking down the gun is some what complicted but so are most beretta semi autos.if you can get one you'll like it. doc

    I bought one about a month ago for my 12 year old son who has just started shooting. It seems to be a nice gun easy on the recoil, he has shot about 2 flats of shells through it only problems so far is that all the screws for adj. comb and but plate need to be tightened every thang came loose.

    My local gun shop had one on the rack, brand new for under $1800. It sat for quite a while, then one of my friends bought it. He has tried, but he just can't shoot it as well as his BT99. I saw the other day that they had another one on the shelf, but didn't check the price.

    The latest Trapshooting USA magazine (page 27) has a full page ad from Michael Murphy for these guns in 2 versions: Trap @ $2099 and Sporting @ $1999. Regards, Ed

    There is a LOT of information regarding the UGB25 on this website. Just do a search.

    FWIW, I have one and, like most people who own one, I think it is a great gun. It certainly breaks targets.

    One of the crew I shoot with had a sporting version for a season.

    He traded it off, or got rid of it in some way or another.

    I know on more that one occasion it was problematic in functioning correctly.

    He does not miss it.

    On the lines of the guys gun having issues, they don't always come perfectly tuned. They usually work amazingly but if it isn't working right, you send it back to Beretta and they will fix/ tune it.

    I shot mine and the Spring Grand for the first time. Solid gun. My only complaint is that you have to keep everything tightened down between shoots. The comb and stock have loosened up after 500 rounds. Love the gun.

    my mate has one and is ready to throw it in the river, keeps it clean and always serviced correctly but it has a regular habit of not locking correctly causing misfires. great gun to shoot otherwise
