1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    This is the ideal gun for a good Kolar or Briley tubeset. Think about showing up at the sporting or skeet event with this puppy. Turn a few heads for sure.

    Thank you for the kind words and I work very hard finding nice guns, mostly for myself but every once in a while I sell one that I thought I never would which is the case with this gun. I just never shoot 12 gauge so I decided I would put it up and see what happens. If it doesn't sell I'm going to do exactly what RunGun suggested and put a set of sub-gauge tubes in it and have fun shooting it. The gun is much better looking in person than my pictures. This is a very special gun that would cost probably 4 times the asking price to have produced today.

    Thinks Jim, this is one I hate to sell, but I just don't shoot it and it needs to be with someone that will shoot it and enjoy it.

    I have a virtually identical gun (actually it's an SO3EELL), but I never noticed any "cocking indicators". What are they and where can they be found?

    Thanks.

    If you missed a pheasant with that gun I bet he'd double back and give you another shot.

    Beautiful gun.

    The cocking indicators are on both sidelocks and they look like a round disc with a bar or line through the middle. If they are horizontal the gun has been fired and is not cocked. If they are cocked at an angle then the gun is cocked and ready to fire. Look at the closeup pictures of the sidelocks and you can clearly see them. In the pictures the gun is cocked.

    Ted,

    If your SO3EELL was made after 1959, the gun won't have cocking indicators. Beretta changed the internals of the sidelocks through the years.

    Esetter,

    Great looking SO3EL!

    Regards,
    Ken

    Well, that explains why I couldn't find them. My gun was made in 1967.

    Thanks.

    Wow ! Stunning

    Are the triggers selectable somehow?

    I don't see the current safety type selector.

    Trigger is not selective. Fires bottom barrel first.

    Thanks for that. The cheap looking Beretta selector does not belong on the SO models, although some have it. My SO light pigeon gun has the reliable non selective trigger also.
