What are the differences between the ASE 90 / ASE Gold models? I have found both and there is a huge difference in cost.

Ase gold had dark titanium coating on the receiver (greystone). Sporting came in 29.5”, 30-3/4”, trap was 32”

Ase 90 was an earlier version, metal coin finish . The original Ase guns had a fatter receiver. Some of the later production was slimmed down. These only came in 28”, 29.5” for sporting and 30” for trap (may have had a 32”trap).

Other than that, same construction. Mobil choke barrels. Both are good. The difference between a 29.5” sporting ase 90 and ase gold is basically cosmetic.

Also the original ASE 90 guns came with an extra trigger group. The ASE 90 Gold did not. The trigger groups between the two models are not interchangeable because the trigger group removal mechanism is also different. Both guns had a large amount of handwork; vastly more so than the DT models that folliwed

The Greystone action is the best looking and most durable finish that Beretta ever produced in my opinion.
They are much more desirable and valuable on the secondhand market over here in Australia.
