I'm interested in purchasing a single shot trap gun in full choke for my 12 year old nephew .. A gentlemen loaned us an older single shot break open full choke Beretta at club recently . It actually fit him very well.. Question is , any info on this gun and rarity , price etc. .. ? Also saw a similar single shot CVA online .. Any info on quality of the CVA ... Maybe other manufacture of similar .. Thanks in advance ..

Without the model number of the gun you can't get any useful information. I've never heard of a CVA single shot that was not a muzzle loader.

How did the Beretta open? If it had the break open release under the Breech and in front of the trigger guard similar to a Ljutic it was probably a TR-1 or two. See these in gun shows for $600 range.

For couple hundred dollars more, you can get a BT-99.

Gary , yes a break open as you described .. I'm familiar with bbt-99 and 100's .. I was thinking browning maybe two years down the road if he stays with it ..

I would strongly suggest the BT-99 over that Beretta. Like Steve W. said for a few hundred more, maybe add a Gracoil w/ adj. LOP. He can grow into that I have a TR-1 for back up, I have broken the firing pin, try to find one of those!! I had two machined for $150 and the silver solder broke holding the barrel to the breech. I used an epoxy retention fluid to fix that.

Perhaps the Beretta was a UGB?
A BT-99 Micro, designed for kids, small men and women may be the best choice.
Also, there is a Beretta 682 with an upper single barrel... but that is a large gun.

recently rebuilt an Ithaca 'Century' SBT. It is almost like a new gun. Top one in the rack. It even has beginners instructions on the barrel. Bulge.

I wouldn't give over $400 for it. This is another specimen that what the book says is irrelevant. Its what someone will give.

BT 99 if he does not stay in it you can sell it at the range for most of what you paid. By a used one and you may be able to sell it fir the same price you paid for it. My girl is 5'3 with very short arms. She is a great shot with this. Give him a good gun from the start and he will shot for the rest of his life. Buy him a cheap one and have problems and he will lose interest.

40+ years ago Beretta made the cheap Trap Special which had a release lever in front of the trigger, and they made this tank of a gun, the MARK II. The latter is easily recognizable because the bbl is 1/10" thick at the muzzle.

Is this what you were loaned?
