Hello everyone, I’ve just purchased an early 70’s beretta al2 12 gauge for my daughter. I finally got her out to the clays range and she loved it! I was able to locate this beretta and it’s in fairly good shape and she really likes it, light weight, beautiful gun.
I got it home today and performed a through cleaning on it, it was absolutely filthy! This has apparently been a field gun as it had dirt in every orafice.
The part I need help with is the recoil spring. I removed the stock with a 19mm socket and after emptying a pound of dirt from the stock I’m left with a tube, the end of the tube has a pin which I knocked out and what appears to be a large flat head screw in the end which I absolutely cannot get it to budge. I’m wondering if that flat head screw is what needs to be removed to get the spring out? I cannot find any useful information about this shotgun, everything I come access applies to newer models and they don’t seem to be the same. I found a video of a 391 being torn down but this is different.
Would anyone have and be willing to share some info, manual, video, anything?
Thank you for any help.
