My Beretta Urika 2 gun barrel just blew...

9 posts in this topic

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.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
