over under gunsmith

10 posts in this topic

I have a beretta over under that needs a good cleaning in the receiver, and I don't feel comfortable doing that. Anyone know of a gunsmith that specializes in over unders and or beretta's?

John Okabu. Not sure where he is anymore. Wish I knew. He used to be based out of Thorne Bros but moved. I thought that I heard he moved north of there someplace but I'm not sure of where. Used him for years on several guns and he did great work at a reasonable price. Haven't seen him in four years now.

Ahlman's would be a good bet. They do all the gunsmith work for the Owatanna Cabela's.

for some reason, I always seem to forget about Ahlman's. That would be a great option. I will swing in there the next time I head south of the cities...........maybe even put in some trigger time if I can get the dust off the reloading equipment

Thanks Fellas

You could also try out the gander mtn in Mankato. The gunsmith there is probably one of the best in all the gander stores.

Picks....what exactly do you need done? Is the gun working and just needs a cleaning? I've shot Beretta's for years and can strip one down (right down to removing and cleaning ejectors) and put it back together no problem. If all you need to know is how to get it apart to clean it properly I could help you out. No need to pay for something that somebody will teach you to do for free.

Yes that is what I need done, 10 years of pheasant and grouse hunting has it pretty dusty and cruddy in there I am sure. SO yes I need to know how to take it apart and get it all back together. I can break down my 870 and other rifles and handguns (except the 1911) and clean them but the idea of goofing up on my over under scares me

How far down can you take it apart right now? Do you know how to take the barrels forearm and barrles off? The reason I ask is there isn't much more to cleaning the receiver than taking the barrles off and wiping it out. The only slightly difficult stuff on a o/u is taking off the trigger group and removing the the extractors. The extractors are easy once somone shows you, and the trigger group is dependent on having the right tools. Regardless, if you'd like to meet up I'd be more than happy to show you how to do it. If you're interested shoot me an email at carpdestroyer@hotmail.com

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
