Wally,
I have a question you might be able to answer. What is the difference between a

303 field gun and a Sporting model? Other than the Sporter only shoots 2 3/4 in

shells and the field gun can shoot 3in. Looks like your Sporter has a field

stock. Am I correct? Is the Sporting gun rib wider? If so, doe's putting a wider

rib barrel on a field gun make it a Sporting gun?

You being the "IN House" 303 guy I figured you could explain the difference.

Thanks..... Philly D

drop of stock at the comb is the same, sporting stocks are a lil thicker, and do feel that way also as most sport guns have a bulky feeling vs a field!-- anothe is the somewhat oil finish vs a laquer shinny coat on a field gun!-- on this gun , the forearm and stock are a match, it just doesnt look quite right in the picture with lighting effect, the forearm is slimmer and shaped differant, which is what the 391's kind of went back to!-----i have shouldered a pickup load of 303's and never have i pulled up one ,as sweet and comfortable as posted above!!!--one last thing, i do believe, all 303 sport were ruff backed w/ no shine on top of reciever and trigger guard!!!

In fact some 3" field barrels have a wide target rib. Just an uncertain time for Beretta back in the 80's. They seemed to make up whatever they had laying around. lol
