1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Lets try this again. I need at least one 2 3/4" barrell with interchangable chokes for my 302/303. If you have a 30" or 32" barrell that is in good or better/ condition and you are asking a reasonable price, consider it sold. The last time I ran this on here, someone answered with one and it was bought before I got back on the internet. If you want a committment fast, email me at the above address and it will go to my phone. At this time, I have decided to pass on complete guns.

    Thanks!

    A 390 barrel will not work on a 303 without some major modifications. A 303 will work on a 390 however by modifying the forearm metal. Which takes about ten minutes.

    ebsurveyor,
    It looks like a trap barrel off of a 303 and this guy would be stupid not to buy it from you.

    ebsurveyor, barrels are interchangeable among all the 30x series models. If you want to figure out what model that one came off, the year of manufacture should help. The barrel should have a proof mark on it which is a date code. The key to the date codes is here: http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=73492&sid=288ad5eec301977373887ce416a7d4ce

    Berben Corp was a joint venture between Beretta and Bennett Galef, during the time that Galef & Son were the US distributors for Beretta, from the early 50's to the late 60's. However, I don't think guns were actually marked with that name during that time period. That mark was used later, during the period of a few years between the bankruptcy of Garcia (late 70's) and the time that Beretta USA took over the shotgun importation business. I have an A302 made in 1984 that bears the Berben label. My guess is the barrel you illustrated came off an A302 Trap gun. In any event, it will fit AL-1, AL-2, AL-3, A300, A301, A302, and A303. I am not sure whether it will fit an A304. It will not fit 390, 391, or 3901.

    Hi
    If that Trap Barrel is still available at $175 delivered, I’ll take it.
    I keep getting your e-mail address returned as not delivered.

    303 barrels most certainly will fit 390s. Just need to modify the steel band in the forend. I've shot many 390s with 303 barrels. The now deceased Phil Hughes at Seminole and Keith Anderson at Ballistic Specialties had a cottage industry fitting 303 barrels to 390s before Beretta came out with flat rib 390 barrels.

    The 303 barrels will fit the 390's but not the other way around. Keep in mind the 303 barrels do not have gas vents in the barrel lug like a 390 thus you will lose any gas venting and the reduced recoil of a 390 barrel and gun. I have shot them this way and it is just like shooting a 303.
