Man, those 390’s are great guns!

Honestly, I’d put in a call to Beretta (kudos to the, for being smart enough to move to Free America Tennessee and out of the Socialist Republik state they had been in (spitooey!) and

Ask them if the springs are the same in the current 400’s or if not any of the other 300 series (ie 300’s, 303’s etc.). Something tells me if you find a spring listed for any 300 series they may be interchangeable with the 390’s.

Just occurred to me: or, are you asking how to go about accessing and removing the recoil spring?

The recoil spring has nothing to do with Failure to Fire. Nor does it have much to do with Failure to Feed. More than likely, the problem is a dirty gun or clogged gas ports. How long has it been since you removed the trigger assembly and the bolt assembly and soaked them in a good solvent such as mineral spirits?

If you have an old recoil spring, it’s very easy to replace. If it doesn’t fix your FTE, it wont hurt to replace it. Usually old springs result in long ejection of hulls.
Put your receiver in a vice with wood sides to protect it. Put a vice grip on the black cap end of the stock bolt. Place a nail through the hole at the end of the stock bolt tube to retain the spring and prevent it from shooting out. Heat it with a butane grill lighter to loosen the locktite and turn counter click wise. Carefully take out the nail and the old spring. Clean the tube, insert the new spring and replace cap with a drop of blue locktite.

Wouldn’t hurt to buy and install a new gas valve spring (for the top by the forend cap) at the same time when you buy the stock recoil spring.

i sold the gun to a close friend years ago and he offered me 1st chance to buy back.
He bought a spring but never installed it, he thinks its not returning to battery.
