Just move it to the left side, for a right handed shooter. His thumb is there already anyway.

Stan, would your thumb be long enough to have the leverage and angle to operate it? Never tried a left side lever.

Now a 21stCentury dedicated SxS target gun? That could win some hearts. Beretta is already doing co-op's with TSK so that is in place. Now all they need is a gun to put it on but I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna wait under water for it.


OMG, what was Woodward thinking using a gimmicky thing...


I can understand that for some following the discourse as a progression of thots and comments can be taxing. I would suggest that it may be worthwhile to explore the offerings of adult literacy programs that I believe are now offered by many libraries.

JIC it may not have been universally understood the side lever on the Beretta is a gimmick. On older guns it may have been an unfortunate necessity or misguided client. I mean, count how many there are compared to top lever guns at any time in history and figure out how wonderful they were. NOT!

Lordy! Straight grip, two trigger, and now side lever posers! It just never ends or fails to provide some terrific laughs. Thanks.

It just takes a little shift of the hand left, never even removing your palm from the grip, to operate a left side sidelever. Works slick. A lot less hand movement that operating a top lever, though I have devised a way of my own to do that efficiently and quickly. I intend to get a buddy to video how I do it next time I go clays shooting and I'll try to post the video on here.

WTS notwithstanding, the top lever is not the do-all end-all of opening gadgets for double guns. The opening latch of a doublegun has yet to be perfected, IMO. And, prolly never will be.

Yep, but I call 'em like I see 'um. Bob C. won't like it, I know, but my opinion is worth no more than anyone else's. smile

You are correct...opinion wise that is.
5lb 12oz 30" 28 gauge or 5lb 15oz 30" .410.





You've got some gorgeous wood on your 21s, Bob.

The looks of that gun reminds me of the NYC/London/Paris high fashion scene where the male models are dressed in skirts and combat boots to make a point of cutting edge fashion. Gag.

If it is actually stocked in ebony, and not walnut that has been pimped to look like ebony, I'd bet it weighs 19 pounds.
We used ebony forend tips to shift the balance around on Darne doubles. It is dense, heavy stuff.
Not to my taste, I'm afraid, and, of little to no concern, as I suspect it will never be seen outside of Italy.

Best,
Ted
