I have heard of a couple of guys who have experienced trigger group/hammer brace problems on the 12 gauge Ultima's...and according to their complaints, Beretta was aware of it and they made it right with new trigger groups from Coles Gunworks (Beretta Authorized Repair shop). No Ultima 20 gauge problems that I have seen. The gun comes with a one year factory warranty that can be extended for an additional two years by submitting a form on the beretta website. I have a 20 gauge Ultima and it's a lot of gun for only $750...I say, buy with confidence.love some of the older Berettas but this gun has some issues.( as most newer model berettas ) i would recommend going with a Benelli
Double20, how light of a load will your Mossberg cycle reliably? Ever use 3/4 oz. reloads? 7/8 oz. 1200 fps reloads or factory? Did it need a break in period?I wish they would have had this gun about 4 years ago when I bought my Mossberg SA-20. Then again, I saved about $250 or so and the Mossberg has functioned flawlessly so maybe I should just be happy with what I got. A buddy of mine had bought a Beretta A300 12 gauge and I really liked it but wanted a 20 gauge version. The closest I could find new was the Mossberg. I would have bought the Beretta A300 Ultima had it been available then. The A400s were a bit more pricey than I was wanting to spend hence the Mossberg. But I do like the looks of the gun pictured above.
I have shot both factory and reloads 7/8 ounce at 1200 fps with no issues. I think I put a box of 1 ounce loads through it to start and then went to the 7/8 ounce with no issues. I haven't tried anything lighter than the 7/8 ounce at 1200 fps. I have shot some different turkey loads through it and they did fine as well. The heaviest was Federal Heavyweight 3" 1 1/2 ounces of #7 shot. Some 3" 1 1/4 ounce lead loads as well. Like I said, so far it has digested all of that without fail.Double20, how light of a load will your Mossberg cycle reliably? Ever use 3/4 oz. reloads? 7/8 oz. 1200 fps reloads or factory?

I had one and I did shoot 3/4 oz. reloads through it after a break in period. It did reliably cycle with 3/4 oz and hot 7/8 data.Double20, how light of a load will your Mossberg cycle reliably? Ever use 3/4 oz. reloads? 7/8 oz. 1200 fps reloads or factory? Did it need a break in period?
