    Had my hands on a wonderful 391 with a fixed rib moneymaker bbl a couple of months back. But I did not have a release for it and could not shoot it. I really liked it and wanted it for a winter play gun, but sent it to Illinois for a young lady to shoot. I woudl have lieked to keep it, but I deferred to the buyer's interest. A few days later Old one eye sent me a brandy-new release.

    Then along comes a same bbl and I was able to buy that, and then I bought a action complete from Brad (bad303?) and I bought that, and then I had a sporting stock that none of you want to buy, and so I bought a hi-grade (real wood) Beretta paralell stock from Kurt na dJohn at Great Lakes Sporting, and now the wood is in TRON's capable hands to make the stock adjustable. Now I know the trigger will b etoo slow fo rme so it is on the way to Phillip Crenwelge (Phillip's Gunsmithing) to be made faster and adjustable. The gun is still in parts as TRON has the stock andmakeing that 4 way, Phillip the trigger and me with the action and bbl. Here is the project in pieces.

    The metal

    and here is the stock that will go on the metal.

    Why this image is washed out must have to do with the colors in thepicture. But trust me the stock is hi class.

    I'll get more pics up as they come available

    The project has potential, if you need that Bolt Jewelled I charge $30.00...

    Won't shoot any better but sure looks nice, adds a touch of Class.

    PM me if interested...

    I really love the grain in that wood. I know you are excited but maybe you should have waited a bit before posting pics of your project.

    Now once it's complete shoot it for a while before you let someone talk you out of it. Have fun.

    Jack, doesn't your trophy wife get pissed about the sales rack on the deck all the time?

    You'll have fun with that soft shooter. Let me know how trigger works out. I need one done too.

    Beautiful project. A couple of years go, I picked up an old school "Wendell Schroll-Special" Beretta 390 that he used to have made up and sold. Remember those? So sweet, a G squared stock with a soft comb, a high ribbed money maker 32" barrel with choke tubes, and the improved bolt release and bolt closer buttons. Shoots like an airgun. Just happened to get a great price on that gun and couldn't resist for old times sake. That gun will come out light, soft shooting, and just be a whole lot of fun to shoot.

    My gun is a 303 with a 32 inch fixed full choke the stock is a custom made Fajen which I had made with a adjustable comb with longer pins to get high enough to match the rib height of 1 inch. I have not shot this gun but once since completing the gun as I have been working on other guns I am trying to complete before going out west. Buddy

    Well, school is out on this gun. Pluses and minuses. Trigger is just outstanding. Crenwelge set the release to about 65/35 with no hesitaion and the best conficence set/clikc you can imagine. Wonderful job Phil. Same mental coordiantin as my Allems.

    Biggest problem I had was short time tody and no time to go to the pattern board to see where it shoots. Too, the stainless forend cap is too heavy and the bbl does not want to stay in the target. But all-in-all a good first day. Usually tho, I pattern the gun and set the comb. I did not do that as I was... uh... Involved in other endeavors.

    But a nice gun.
