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

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
