I’ve read about the rib coming off the A-400 Black.
Shooting sporting today, finished one station, went to the next, picked up my gun and the rib was gone.
Went back one station and there it was in the shooting station.
Slide it back on, have to slide back every 2 shots, 3 shots and it’s off again!
I’m gluing it on. No need to EVER remove it again! :w

There is a roll pin you need to replace and glue in. Some have drilled out the existing hole and put in a slightly larger roll pin. I put crazy glue on either side of my roll pin before I ever shot it. Probably have 10k rounds with an issue so far.

You just need to develop a proper routine, i.e. shoot two shots, slide rib back. No big deal!.

I had to do that with a franchi I owned. You learn to work it in with the choke twist check.

Did that yesterday. Not doing it tomorrow.
I guess I’ll call Coles to see if they have any pins, better order 2!

Coles doesn’t have or sell pins. Send gun for repair.
Waiting for call back from Brownells to see if they have pin?

Has anyone just glued it back into place???

Turns out it was a GREAT suggestion.
Ace Hardware had the right pin. 1/16”. Pretty pricey .17Cents
Loktited into place.

Sorry Duk, made that remark in fun. Sorry if it came across as something else. What`s Remington got to do with what I said?

This guy did an industrial fix

I think it’s better not to drill carbon fiber, I heard it can splinter if done incorrectly.

I just don’t understand why you’d want a plastic rib on a shotgun....and pay extra for it!

Because that’s the only flavor beretta makes in a black gun. If they made the black with a steel rib, no one would buy a blue gun.

Make a pin from a piece of wire that fits snugly. Set it with locktite and forget about it
