SHOOT­ING IM­PRES­SIONS

Sporting Shooter - - Gun Test -

I am par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in this sort of gun and was re­ally keen to find out how it per­formed. Sadly, the weather was not with me – it was pour­ing down! This did, how­ever, make con­di­tions re­al­is­tic as one might ex­pect this gun to be used in a hide or on the marsh. I didn't shoot at that many birds, but I shot at a few stomp­ing tar­gets sim­u­lat­ing high duck and pi­geon. I wasn't es­pe­cially in the mood, be­cause of the in­clement con­di­tions, but the Beretta didn’t miss a beat or a bird. It shot in­stinc­tively and very well. There was less vi­bra­tion ev­i­dent than in some A400s and I put this partly down to the new Blink bolt as­sem­bly. I used the stan­dard test load for autos: Lyal­vale Ex­press HV 28. There were no mal­func­tions at all, but re­coil was quite heavy as one might ex­pect in such a light gun. Nev­er­the­less, I thought this an out­stand­ing auto-loader. The de­sign, func­tion and looks are A1.
