Hi!

Im curious how long DT10 should last like how many shots it can take before ’worn out’? Of course proper maintenance regularly. Thanks!

Ahhhh forever? If you wear one out in your life time that would be a first as far as I know, they can be rebuilt(major overhaul) several times and the smaller parts replaced as needed.

I've had my DT10 for more than 15 years. I can't honestly say how many rounds have been fired through it but way, way over 100,000. Maybe 150,000, mostly light 1 oz target loads. In addition to the DT, I've shot a lot of rounds out of Beretta autos, 12 and 20, and a CG Maxum 20.

The gun has been extremely reliable, only worked on by a very highly competent Beretta gunsmith. I just recently had a trigger sear spring fail and had both replaced for less than $100. I think the locking bolt was replaced once 5-6 years ago. I may have had the firing pins and hammer springs replaced once as just a Preventive Maintenance move and to keep the trigger pulls crisp.

I did have the forcing cones lengthened by Angleport some time ago and I added an ISIS about 3 seasons ago.

The gun is still "on face" and shoots very well. I've had a hard time convincing myself I need to "upgrade" to more expensive target guns.

If you find a nice DT10 I'd say go for it.

Phil

Thanks for the answer, especially Phil. :-)
I have DT10 trident skeet with fixed shokes, I bought it 2017 when I started shooting.

That is very big number of shot, wow! Now I believe that the gun will last until I cant shoot anymore. Now my gun have about 15,000-16,000 shots behind, bought it when about 10,000.

Your Trident Skeet with fixed chokes should be a great skeet gun. I'm sure you know Vincent Hancock won a ton of championships with his, maybe even one or more of his Olympic medals.

He's recently said on Behind the Break that he's shooting a DT11 Black 30".

I should add, on my DT10, I've had the top lever spring changed twice (I think).
