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.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
