    I just picked up 1 myself last week, the gun is real nice and heavy like you said, no Briley chokes for me. The stock on mine has been cut down for woman or youth.
    I shot 21 out of 25 with it the next day and my buddy borrowed it when his gun jammed during league and popped a 21 too.

    Great sturdy lil gun but maybe gunna sell mine to a youngster due to stock options lol.

    I think the guns you are referring to were called "Silver Snipes"?. I bought one around 1970 (used) for around $125. My Wife didn't like it so I traded it in on a Lightning Broadway. Haven't seen one of those Berettas since then. Larry

    Sounds like an Beretta FS-1 Folding Companion. Silver Snipes/Golden Snipes are over and unders.

    The single barrel Berettas are not Silver Snipes. Those are O/U's that are more of an upland bird gun.

    A number of years ago I shot next to a young fellow who had one. He broke 100 straight that day.

    They are called "Trap Special" stamped so on the side very simple and built to last. Probly the mosst likely thing to go on these would be the lever to break open or a spring.

    Mark II Berettas have the traditional lever on the back of the receiver.

    gramps, on the side of the receiver does it say "Pietro Beretta" and also "Trap Special"? if it does, this is the TR1 or TR2 difference between the two models was the rib height. first "trap" gun i ever owned. built like a tank, shot pretty flat and very reliable. these were made prior to the Mark I & II's. dennis

    Mark II's were more similar to BT99's. The Trap Specials have a latch release in front of the trigger guard. I wish I had never sold my Mark II, built like a tank and a great shooting gun. J. Terre

    The Beretta 412 folding shotgun was made as a very low cost entry level gun. It was also made as the Galef "Companion".

    Made in other guages, and the trap models came along later.

    You could fold a 20 guage and stick it in a back pack. Info at link.

    They have 32in barrel, low rib, mid bead, quite heavy , and full choked.

    Mine was cut down for a youngster and will probly show up in the for sale section to let someone who needs a youth/lady gun enjoy it. I had a 21/25 and my buddy had 21/25 too.
