    I've just purchased a S58s to start trap shooting. I am a beginner at this sport and would like any background info for this model Beretta. It has been well used but also been very well looked after and is still tight. It has "Trap" stamped on the trigger guard. Any info would be appreciated. Graeme Weaver

    The s50 series preceded the 680 (1980)guns. The s55, s56, s57, s58 grades were imported into the U.S. labled as BL-1 through BL-6 series. Manufactured with interchangeable parts, much less expensive than hand made S-0 guns. You have a very good gun. S58 barrels are made from Boehler Antinit steel, from Austria; costly to make and very light. This is the only shortcoming. At 7 1/4 pounds, recoil is punishing; a disadvantage in today's trap world. Use light 1 oz loads, add lead tape to the barrels, some weight to the buttstock, a good soft recoil pad, an adjustable comb/pad if it's not a collectors item. No other changes are needed, don't port the barrels! Good Shooting.

    That "Trap" on trigger guard means Int'l trap. Not ATA trap.
