    A friend of mine just bought a 12g S55 Silver Snipe and is looking for a owners manual or copy of one. Can any one help out?

    Also said the second shot trigger was a little "sticky". He didn't know if he was not releasing the trigger enough for it to reset properly or if it needed some attention. Any thoughts?

    Those are the old BL series shotguns, light-weight and was Berettas inexpensive field guns. Made in both Argentina and Italy. Made from 1957 to the early 1970's. Click on the link and scroll down to Beretta O/U manual. Not much has changed. The S55 had extractors only.

    As far as the trigger goes, it would be a good idea to pull that stock off, clean and oil things up in there.

    A friend of mine picked up a 'basket case' Silver Snipe a few years ago - literally it was a bunch of parts in a basket. Evidently the previous owner tore it down and then couldn't figure out how to put it back together.

    But we managed to re-assemble everything in about an hour, it really is not a complex design. I was impressed with the quality of the internal parts and how well they did fit. It was a very good shotgun for its price range.

    We looked for replacement parts (for just in case) but found out they are very hard to come by.

    Since these are fairly old guns, a good internal cleaning is probably called for. Don't be afraid of the chore, just take photos as you go. In addition to cleaning up the trigger parts, I would pull the firing pins and springs and clean them and their nesting spots as well.
