Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Jumped on the bandwagon..bought a 81 Beretta

I got the pistol today at the range. And the pistol was brand new unfired after it was made! There was not a mark on the feed ramp to the breech. Not a mark on its frame surfaces to be found. The magazine has no scratches on it anywhere and the follower in bright and shiny with no signs of a cartrid...

Re: Jumped on the bandwagon..bought a 81 Beretta

It's a 70 mile trip to him so I'll pick it up after lunch tomorrow. There are dealers closer to me but he does not charg...

Re: Removing Rust from Threads?

The fine threads of the choke tubes do have to be squeaky clean. The best product out there is Kroil,hands down. No other product works as well or has been around longer.
Ace Hardware sells it. A little goes a very long way.

Re: Funny how life repeats itself....

I loaded up 50 rounds and went to the range.The pistol shot very well placing all 50 shots into the target set to 25 yards with most going into a silver dollar size group.
I forgot how much fun this cartridge is to shoot.

Re: Jumped on the bandwagon..bought a 81 Beretta

I just read on a Beretta forum that you can change the caliber to .380 ( 9mm Kurtz) by replacing the barrel and magazine ( or bend the magazine lips) How cool is that? But, I like .32 ACP as a shooting cartridge. There are loads using a heavy bullet of 80 grains or more that will equal the .380 cart...

What a shame. First time the rifle falls over and dings the gas tube,or worse yet dislodges it the shooter will get a rude awaking!
