    Well, it’s a shotgun. Specifically a Beretta 412. It’s also a gunsmith special, meaning that it may be broken and/or missing parts.

    You’re gonna get banned for posting a screenshot. Might want to delete this.

    Gunsmith specials are generally unsafe to fire and are expected to be worked on as a project

    Make sure the barrel isn’t Damascus, make sure the bore is free of obstruction, the barrel doesn’t wobble or doesn’t fit snug to breech face and then it probably should be safe to fire with birdshot (pretty hard to mess up a break shotgun if those 3 things aren’t a factor).

    As for the gunsmith special, be prepared to take the whole thing down, gut the insides, replace parts, and put it all back together, or have a gunsmith do it.

    I’d bet it’s going to be one of the 5:
    -loose or falling off stock peices
    -broken firing pin
    -broken or worn spring hammer spring
    -loose barrel to breech fit
    -broken ejector

    Hey all!

    I hope this is allowed if not please point me the right direction. I was bored shopping on gunbroker and I placed a bid on this didn’t thinking I’d win. Well I did! Except, I can’t find very much information at all on this rifle.

    Could anyone give me some more information on what I bought? The seller states the bore is in good condition but there’s significant rusting on the barrel and receiver. Would it be safe to fire (after I do my best to get the rust cleaned off?) or did I just waste a little money?

    Thanks 🙂
