I was talking with an older trap shooter tonight and he was telling me about some of the guns he had. One was a Beretta Mark II as he called it. I told him I would do some checking on the computer for some information about this gun I have not been able to find much. Does anyone know any thing about this gun or have one?

Thanks,

Tim

PS. He told me it was a single shot trap gun.

Tim, There was a thread on this just a few days ago, click on the link. Those are not the same gun, but both Beretta models. Bill Malcolm

These were excellent trap guns. Very heavy barrels but swung nicely. I broke some nice scores with them and still own two of them. Originally they were available with 32"& 34" barrels. This gun was available in limited numbers and was the for-runner to the 680.

The Mark II Beretta went the way of the Perazzi TM series. I consider the decision to discontinue both of these the manufacturers errors. Both were excellent guns and worth more then the market charged. That's probably the reason. After you sell them for a low price it's impossible to raise the numbers and convince the buyers they are worth the increase.

I purchased my great uncles when he passed away...it had hardly been shot. I made the mistake of selling it to a guy from warrensburg, il who collected them. I tracked it down to a gun shop in Pekin/Peoria , Il in 99. They sold it! I wish I could find it and buy it back! They were pretty good guns back in the day!

If anyone knows about this gun, please let me know!

Love

I had a Mark II a very nice gun the barrel was thick enough that Briley put a choke in it to shoot high I could smoke them at 16 but couldn't find at handicap so I sold it. I now own a TR 1 a fore runner of the TR 2 , the TR 2 has a higher rib. I tried to get it worked on at the grand and Berretta laughed at it. They don't have parts or even drawings for it anymore. Enjoy them they are nice guns and will destroy birds from the back fence. I keep the TR 1 as a conversation piece with the under lever break open. Jack A.

Also they are in the thick Gun Values Book. The TR 1 was discontinued in about 1970 and the MarkII about 1975. Jack A.

The MkII and the tr2 were 2 totally different guns. The MkII was based on the BL boxlock action, and was a quality firearm. It had a normal operating lever.


The TR 1 & 2 were basically Galef "Companion" backpack guns fixed up to be like trap guns. They kicked like the Rockettes. They operated with a lever in front of the trigger guard.

I would buy a MkII today, not so a TR series gun.

I own a Beretta Mark 11 and I used to shoot 98's and 99's with it and sold it back to the guy I bought it from because I thought a different gun would get me to the 100's and 4 months later when I realized it's not the gun, went back and got it back and have since shot 19, 100 straights in Singles and you will have to pry this gun from my cold dead hands.

The 100 straights are getting farther apart now but once you have shot 300 straight in the same shoot it's hard to say your gun doesn't shoot straight or doesn't fit you and you want to trade for something else. I also own a new Browning XT but only practice 16 yds. with it and rely on my Mark 11 in competition.

If you ever find the 1 you had, don't ever let it go again.

Thanks
