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 almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
