I am looking for a pheasant gun and saw a Beretta AL 390 at a local gun shop. It is a sport model and they are asking $824. It has the rounded receiver. This sounds like a lot for this gun, but is there something special about this model? Is this price about right?

For those saying way to high on the 390 how do you justify 900.00 for a 303? The 824.00 for a nice clean 390 sport is not out of line especially if it has a 30" barrel. They are getting harder and harder to find. In fact most of the nice 30" sporters i have seen are closer to 1000.00 than 800.00 and the gold guns are higher yet. A lot depends on usage and barrel length. But 824.00 is not way to high.

Bad, when I can get a Urika 391 gold sporting for $7-800,or a 391 sport trap 30" bbls for 5-600, why would you even consider an older design at a higher price? Yes, $824 is way too high!! Add a moneymaker rib, then we might talk...

of course, JMHO

Jim this shows your lack of knowledge on "older design" Berettas. The 303 and 390 are much more desirable guns than the 391. You buy all the 391's you want for 7-800.00 and the rest of us familiar with the old junkers will keep selling them for 800.00-1200.00. What in your opinion is a claen 30" 390 sport worth?

I purchased my last 390 for $650 with its plastic hard case. The previous 2 I bought 6 years ago, one was $450 and the other $425.

What I know of the 391's they are a don't buy.

UpNorth, keep shopping or talk them down on their price.

I have bought two in the last two years. One was a standard 28 inch with screw in choke and I bought it for $300.00 and it was 92 to 95 pct. The second one was also 28 inch with screw in chokes but had the upgraded wood and I paid $350.00 for it and it was in new condition. Normally, I would expect to pay around $450.00 at the most.

Well, Bad, I think having owned all Beretta 3XX series autoloaders has given me a level of knowledge on the guns. Yes, the 303 and 390's are desirable, more so than used 391's. Yet, the demand has been met by excellent quality guns in the $400-$600 range. Super X1's are much more desirable, and the market has held steady in the $600 range for prime trap models. I perceive no difference in the 390's. Were not talking used P or K guns here. Thus my appraisal of the aforementioned gun.

I give you my opinion. a clean 390 sport is worth $500-$600..and I can buy them at that all day long...

actually, had the opportunity to purchase a nice one at $400 at the recent Saline Gun Show...

Well Bad, guess you should stop by the Saline fairgrounds for the next gun show. 3rd weekend of the month..

I'm not arguing that you can sell them for an inflated, bloated, price...

I'm just answering your question on what do I think there worth. That was your question, not mine.

Guess you should have been in line when I traded my AL390ST sport with 30" tapered rib barrel, with the steel forend nut, to the 13 year old kid shooting the 11-87 with 26" barrel... huh? Now that was a steal... but, hey, he needed a great gun at a reasonable price...
