      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

My Beretta Urika 2 gun barrel just blew...

Recommended Posts

I decided to shoot my last 3 weeks last night. Got through the first 2 courses and was on the second stand of my 3rd round. I figure I must have shot about 115 rounds yesterday before the barrel on my gun blew out.

I brought it back to Gander, where I bought it this past spring, new. The gun smith virtually guaranteed that Beretta will do nothing about it and I'll have to drop another $400 for a new barrel.

Just about everyone I talk to thinks a wad must have been stuck in the barrel. Only a couple thought it might be a barrel defect..

I was using Estate brand sporting rounds and NOT reloaded rounds.

What are the chances one of the companies will cover this repair? Or am I out another $400?

Cut it off and have choke tubes re-installed. $100, or so. Ahlman's in Morristown, or Gander can do it for you. Not fun, but it's broke and needs to be fixed - do it sooner than later.

Holy (can't say the word)! I would think that if you give Beretta CS a call they would at least be willing to talk to you. They make a good product and should stand behind it. That would scare the poooop out of me.

Yikes, I guess talking to Estates manufacturer would be another avenue, but I bet in the end you will get the blame game round around... and still be out $400...

That stinks it happened. Good luck in a bad situation. At least you nor anyone else was hurt.

I guess that a letter from a lawyer would do more than get you a new barrel. Go to a real gunsmith and get an opinion on what caused it and then check back on this forum. That just ain't right.

I got great news today. Just called Beretta and they shipped the gun back to GM. They replaced the barrel under warranty!

Is that a heavy duty barrel or the standard one? The metal looks awfully thin.

You'd be surprise at how easy it can be to blow a rifle on automatic shooting. All you have to do is act like you're in a movie and spray left and right. One round will lodge in a hot barrel and the second round will blow. That's the good scenario.

The bad scenario is an immediate detonation just as the round is loaded into the chamber.

It's a very small percentage but it does happen.

Good to hear they took care of you. I've heard good things about their customer service. So I'm not surprised.
