    Will the new self cleaning piston work in an older 391?---Could you put close to 1000 rounds through a 391 without doing any cleaning---going to the NC state shoot, don't want to haul all my cleaning stuff & it looks like my new gun would't be ready----Phil

    Phil,
    I'm not tron (thank god) but I can tell you the new piston will work in any 391.

    Hope this helps

    Krieghoffkrusher is not me, but he is right. This is one of their "inovations" that I just don't get. I've never had any issues with the old piston design, other than them breaking ears off from time to time, so I switched to Angleport's "Unbreakable" design and have never had any problems.

    I go about 2000-3000 between cleanings, whether it needs it or not. Don't forget the Breakfree CLP!

    Yes, Kreighoffs are expensive and as you may well know, they have a tendency to blow up a lot.

    I'm not Tron either but my 391 regularly goes 2K(+) rounds without cleaning. No functioning issues at all, the cleaning is more guilt driven than a necessity. All original Beretta parts, the gun is 8 years old.

    I bought one of those "self cleaning" pistons, and my wife will be quick to confirm that they are indeed self cleaning. That is of course so long as I clean her gun. Don't see a great deal of difference in cleaning the new one compared to the old one. Mostly alot of tadooo about nuttin.

    And what was that you said about kreighoff?

    I said that they tend to blow up, way more than any other brand.

    I can't believe it, Tron. Not one nibble.

    PS I'm lurking for the 391 info.....
