    I need to refurbish a Beretta AL391 and was wondering if anyone would recommend utilizing Cole Gunsmithing in the state of Maine. I understand they specialize in Beretta guns. I will need mechanical service as well as new wood.
    Thanks,
    Randy Kalal

    I can. As good as it gets for Beretta's. Have been a Cole customer for many years. I doubt you will find anyone to hve a negative comment.

    I had a recoil reducer installed and it didn't work out. The cap for the recoil tube was modified and needs to be replaced. I also want someone to look at the location of a welded sphere on the barrel to knock down hulls in doubles. Plus, there is a 303 extractor instead of the 391. As far as wood, I'm looking at a palm swell or just a plain factory stock. Not sure what the cost is.

    i know you didnt ask for advice like this but here it is--unless your 391 is special- i'd go find another one already tricked out used or new!-- i have used coles service and spent $ on guns that i just cudnt part from. when i look back, i shud have bot a ready to go gun or one some else took a hit(loos) on the cost of tricking out a gun!-- the average used plain 391 is worth under $900- with wood and some extras, you'll spend 1/2 that or more---just my opinion

    Cole Gunsmithing does good work, but they're expensive. Listen to acss in the previous post, he's giving you the right advice.
