(From the Beretta website)The AL391 Urika Trap, with its 30-inch barrel, is distinguished by a wide ventilated, stepped rib with white front and mid-rib beads, Monte Carlo stock and special rubber recoil pad. The receiver is satin black with glossy side panels and silver markings. The trigger is gold-plated and the stock and fore-end are in select walnut. The barrel comes with interchangeable Mobilchoke® tubes.
The rounded receiver profile and broad, ventilated rib ensure quick target acquisition. The AL391’s self-compensating gas system makes it one of the softest shooting autoloaders right out of the box, reducing felt recoil and improving second shot recovery. Beretta’s adjustable drop and cast system on the AL391 Urika competition shotguns ensure a custom fit for every shooter.
Italians have a national,
natural flare for superlative design.
It came as no surprise then that in reshaping their existing Model 390
semi-auto, Beretta turned to the internationally acclaimed design
studio, Giugiaro Design. Considering some of the clunkers still
apparent in the firearms field, this was a great idea. In fact,
Giugiaro recently worked with Beretta on the design of their new 9000S
pistol series so we can look forward to seeing a lot more of Giugiaro's
The first evidence of this elegant and thoughtful design is the permanent polymer hard case that accompanies the AL391. This case houses every part of the gun and every accessory, including a complete set of five Mobilchoke®, a choke wrench, gas valve disassembly tool, stock drop and cast spacers and shims, sling swivels, grip cap, alternative thickness rubber recoil pad and Beretta gun oil.
Appreciable attention has been paid to the elimination of recoil and vibration in the 391. The self-regulating gas system that is permanently attached to each 391 barrel adjusts automatically from the lightest 2 3/4" target loads to the heaviest 3" hunting loads.
Overall, Beretta and Giugiaro Design have done an outstanding job of remodeling and refining a great basic design. The AL391, a delight to shoot at the range and to carry in the field.
far the best semi-automatic for clay target shooting on the market."
|Beretta made its already great 390
auto even better and dubbed it the 391 Urika. The 391 handles
beautifully, thanks to its slimmed-down forearm and light (under 7
pounds in 12-gauge) weight. Inside, the Urika is simple, soft-shooting,
and reliable. A recoil damper in the receiver eases stress on internal
parts as well as on your shoulder. Our test gun has cycled 1,025 rounds
and counting without cleaning or a single malfunction. Capable of
shooting all loads from 7/8 ounce target ammo to 2-ounce turkey
magnums, the Urika is everything you want in an autoloader in a
lightweight, highly shootable package. Prices begin at $960.
Urika semi-automatic trap, sporting clays and target shotguns maintain
the superior design, control, and reliability of the AL391 Urika
hunting versions, but possess features that make them true competition
shotguns. The stocks, fore-ends and buttplates are designed for maximum
performance in every shooting discipline. The rounded receiver profile
and broad, ventilated rib ensure quick target acquisition. The AL391’s
self-compensating gas system makes it one of the softest shooting
autoloaders – right out of the box – reducing felt recoil and improving
second shot recovery. Beretta’s adjustable drop and cast system on the
AL391 Urika competition shotguns ensure a custom fit for every shooter.
