The Beretta AL390 is much more than
a semi-automatic that does everything well.
It's the only semi-automatic that
does everything as well as a Beretta.
So it's the only semi-automatic you
can use with absolute confidence, regardless of game, target or season.
user-friendly semi-auto a hunter can own. The AL390 is nearly
one-half pound lighter than the A390, so pointability and ease of swing
are enhanced. Yet the new, lighter AL390 has less felt recoil than before
and retains its perfect Beretta balance.
The AL390 achieves its weight reduction
with refinements to the stock, a narrower fore-end, lighter fore-end cap
and subtle changes to other components.
You'll find new checkering patterns,
a reshaped pistol grip for improved handling and a new comb for better
|The flawless "all-load" performance
that has made the A390 a hunter's favorite remains the same in the new
AL390. Use the Beretta AL390 for everything from upland birds to waterfoul,
to turkey or deer. Absolutely no adjustments of any kind are required to
accommodate different loads. A convenient
magazine cut-off allows the shooter to empty the chamber for safe handling,
or to slip in a different load without cycling any shells remaining in
get years of trouble-free service.The
extensive use of high-strength stainless steel and aluminum alloys makes
the AL390 almost impervious to stress and corrosion. The solid receiver
is precision machined from lightweight alloy that is as strong as steel.
All operating parts are made of high-performance
steels and aluminum alloys and are carefully hand assembled, checked, and
cycled hundreds of times before they leave the factory to ensure trouble-free
performance. Beretta's unique self-compensating gas
system substantially reduces stress on the gun's operating parts when heavy
loads are fired. In exhaustive tests, the system has performed with perfection,
round after round, over the entire range of factory loaded shells, from
one ounce target loads to the heaviest 3 inch magnums. Because of its simple
design, the AL390 is remarkably easy to disassemble for cleaning and maintenance.
AL390 Stock Drop & Cast Spacer System-because one size gun does not
fit all. We designed the AL390 to bring the fit of a custom
stock within everyone's reach by utilizing an ingenious, easily adjusted
system of drop and cast spaces for quick adjustment of both the vertical
and horizontal angle of the stock to fit each shooter's size and shape.
Spacers are provided with every AL390.Both cast and drop spacers are marked
with metric dimensions followed by DX or SX. DX numbers refer to right
hand/cast-off and SX numbers refer to left-hand/cast-on. By rotating the
spacers so the numbers (e.g. 50 or 65) correspond, the stock can be raised
or lowered and adjusted for cast-on/cast-off.
The various stock drop adjustments
provided by these spacers are detailed in the chart at right.
