Have a Beretta 20ga which is the earlier Urika model. Understand that the only differance between the earlier Urika and the Urika 2 is the gas piston. The newer piston is supposed to require less cleaning because of it's design. Can I purchase the newer piston, and if so, is there any fitting required? Or, is it a waste of money to do so?

no fitting necessary...don't know if its really worth it though either...never seen one dirty enough to ever stop or one that ever broke

Is that the same Beretta that "improved the shell carrier" for the 12 gauge 391 so it wouldn't work, and shooters had to spend $40 to $70 to refit it with
the old style 390 carrier? That Beretta?

Draw your own conclusions about the "improved" piston.

In 12 gauge I shoot a 391 Urika Trap Optima (old style piston) and a 391 Urika 2 Sporting Optima (newer style piston) for skeet and sporting. I don't think one piston is cleaner than the other. I bought a spare piston back a few years ago when the talk around town was the old style were cracking. Mine never cracked but, I'm glad I have a spare. It works out great for cleaning.
