    First, gut the gun (remove barrel, forarm, trigger, bolt and linkage). Next, take a small punch and punch out the roll pin (it's a small roll pin, so be gentle) in the right lower area of the receiver below the closure button:

    Next, take a large paper clip (or mechanics wire) and straighten it out. You will see a small hole in the ejector port toward the barrel. Push the paper clip into the hole and the hinge pin will come out toward the bottom of the receiver:

    Now, the closure assembly will come out as a unit. The bolt closure button is on a hinge pin that simply pushes out...it should be self explanitory from there, but if you have any question, feel from to Email my website

    Enlighten me please.

    Just what's wrong with just pushing the button that comes with it?

    These add on closers cost what?

    confused.

    first of all- tron-its nice to see someone else use a paperclip on that procedure! i always wondered what beretta people do?

    as far as using this bolt closer- way better than the stiff button- especially if you have kids or its cold out!!

    Bruce when your gun costs 800.00 a bolt closure is nothing compared to what the o/u crowd spends initially. And i doubt you would have ask this question had you owned and shot an auto as a primary gun. The factory buttons are a pain. Especially for women and kids.

    My wife shoots a 391; the first thing she asked for was a bolt closer and it was simply because the button felt absurd to her..and she hardly knows guns; just spied one in the rack on another Beretta. I also later added a bigger bolt handle; she didn't like that at first 'cause it didn't match the blue bolt closer!! But all's well know when she now realizes how much easier these upgrades make things.
