Just picked up a Beretta BL2 12ga with 30" barrels, 3" chamber, rib, regular single trigger (no speed trigger), and the latter safety/selector like on the 680 guns. Looks like it might be a fun gun and maybe a good duck gun with bismuth.

Has anyone owned one of these? Price was silly good and I was shocked no one else bid at all.

Plain Jane, but still a Beretta. And they work. Sounds like a duck gun, but you may lose part of the savings on the purchase price by having to use bismuth.

And serious duck guns should be plain extractor guns, IMO. Enough plastic in the waterways already!

I think you'll get good service out of her. I had a (similarly plain) 685 for years and wish I still had it for a rainy day gun.

The one on gunbroker? The price was right 400/500. Same as the S55 and Silver Snipe, just marketed for Garcia. I picked one up last year 26" M/IC with the speed trigger for roughly the same price. I really like mine and shoot it well. Put a lot of Kent bismuth through it last year.

I have a big stash of Bismuth from picking up a box here and there at gun shows. I also have a dozen boxes of Kent TM but they are pretty stout 3" shells. Might harvest the shot and reload them. I agree about liking the extractors 100% Not that you can't catch your shells but I like not having too!

Yep $449 and shipping. Can't wait to have in my hands!

Ejector guns do not have to eject the empties into the water, marsh, mud, etc. Anybody who cares can catch the empties as they eject and do anything with them they want. And they can reload faster than with an extractor gun, too, IMO. I've been doing this for as long as I can remember. And, I have shot the whole season with an extractor gun before, so I know the difference.

Tim, sounds like a nice gun. Despite my participation at the 16 ga.site, I'm a big fan of thee ol' 12 gauge.

Smart buy, you'll like it. Definitely an under the radar gun!

I have a BL-4 in twentygauge and love it. Five and a half pounds, 26" with factory IC/MOD. A very nice upland gun. You should love yours.
