There is nothing eye-catching or defects that we can see. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Excellent condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: There is a factory Beretta case that holds the shotgun takedown along with two chokes. The case has some scratches from transportation, use, and storage.
Our Assessment: This gun immediately caught our eye once we opened the case. The green receiver is sleek dark sage type color. That compliments the dark oil-stained wood. As we dove deeper the 3 1/3” chambering made our mouths water. With a Kick-Off recoil system, we were about to call for a lost gun because Dan was going to take it hunting. Beretta makes arguably the best semi-auto shotgun at the price point. Don’t get us wrong, this gun would retail is a hard pill for any sportsman to swallow. Like most luxury cars, they are driven off the lot and the savings is in finding one used. Even if you miss every duck this season or every chucker, you will have a nice gun that your buddies will wonder how you afforded in the first place, you definitely are not sponsored….
