I bought this gun to replace a great shooting 390 I used to have. My plans were to put a Super Trap stock on it and use it for an all round gun. In the meantime, I bought another O/U trap gun on this site, so this one should go.

391 field, 28" barrel, 5 Optima Plus flush chokes, two butt pads, shim and washers, blue case. Everything that came from the factory. Note: Optima Plus, Optima chokes will not fit this barrel.

These are the seller's pics from when I bought the gun. My camera is not available, but there's not much to see.

Edit: I just looked the gun over in good light. There are a couple of very small white marks on the stock, nothing even into the wood. Looks like it was rubbed against something. No rust or marks on the receiver or barrel. You wouldn't be disappointed.

Price is $700 shipped to your FFL.

I don't think so. The forearm is marked Optima. So I believe Optima barrels will fit, but not Mobil.

There are three different choke styles (depends on barrel internal dimensions) in the Beretta shotgun line. The older style is the Mobil Choke, newer Berettas come with Optima or Optima Plus Chokes (Optima is generally used in target guns, while Optima Plus is used in field barrels (again, bores are slightly different, thus requiring the different choke styles). These chokes are not interchangeable. So a Mobil Choked barrel cannot use Optima or Optima Plus chokes, nor can an Optima barrel use Optima Plus chokes (or Mobil chokes) for instance. As for forearm markings, my AL391 Urika forearm is marked Optima, but I have both Optima and Optima Plus choked barrels for it (a target barrel, and a field style barrel) so forearm markings are no guide as to what the barrel bore (and thus what choke style) is needed.

Yes, the gun is still available.

I talked with Beretta today. The gun was made in 2005. All Optima barrels will fit the gun. According to the tech I spoke with, the Mobil choked barrels will not work. I even asked about putting a "Mobil forearm" along with the Mobil barrel, and they said no. Could be a defensive measure, not sure.

Danny,

I have a 391 Urika 2 that came with Optima barrel and forearm. I already had a mobil barrel. The mobil barrel does not quite fill up (fit tight) along the edges of the Optima forearm but once you scew on the fore end cap that matters not. It works fine.

Awesome duck gun! Filled limit on more than 1 occassion. I have both the Mobile and Optima Plus gun, a hunter will really like the Optima Plus choke system(especially if they hunt steel shot). Just a good all around hunting gun!
