    I have a 12 ga Beretta SP that will fire both barrels every once in a while. I have not had the stock off to clean and have probably fired 50,000 rounds. Any suggestion as to what it might be and possible fix.

    Pull the stock and spray the action with brake cleaner, blow out with compressed air, then spray with CLP or RemOil, blow out with compressed air, reassemble. Then when you shoot it, don't trap the trigger. :) Mark

    Is it doubling or machine gunning? My friend doesn't hold gun tight enough and the the recoil pulls him back into trigger sometimes.

    Another friend , deceased , had trouble with his Beretta o/u machine gunning when he shot skeet from the hip holding the gun upside down. Beretta Gunsmith scolded him that the gun was designed to be shot from the shoulder, not upside down from the hip. Recoil was causing the gun to machine gun.

    Don't forget to check the trigger pull poundage.. After 50,000 rounds it could be that the sear is worn and not fully engaging..

    Had this happen a few years back on my K80. Went to a gunsmith and he repaired it saying it was a worn sear. If the lube/cleaning doesn't work that is probably the problem.

    Be real sure you're shouldering the gun right and have a good firm grip.

    I have a 1975 Baikal hunting model O/U that does the same thing and Mel Hunting tried to repair it years ago and said the parts on those guns were soft and wearing to the sears was the problem . AS for not shouldering some guns , that may cause the second shot not to go off since it didn`t set the trigger !!!!!
