    Looking at purchasing a Beretta 391 Urika Sport with Mobil choke barrel. The question is...would I be OK replacing that barrel with an Optima choke barrel?
    Also, would the same forend fit either?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Yes, the barrel will fit, but you will either need to retro fit the existing Mobil forearm or replace it with an Optima.

    Why change it if the Mobil choked barrel shoots like it's supposed to?

    I just made the transition because I wanted to be able to back bore to .740, don't ask me why, that's what I wanted. Also had DeVault put a high rib on it because I wanted to raise the comb for a more upright head position. Original Mobil forend wood fits, no problem. Rich

    I am buying the Urika Sport as a backup and would like to use the customized wood and Optima choked barrel with add-on rib from my Teknys if necessary.
