Beretta has made non-selectable guns for ages. The only difference is the safety, if your gun doesn't have a selector and you want one, install a safety with one, and vice versa. A selector is typically locked off on American skeet guns anyways, and a selector is NEVER an asset if you aren't going to use it.

I have 2 ASE 90's one is a skeet gun (without bbl selector) the other is a sporting (with selector). Don't know about the DT-11, but the drop out trigger from the ASE 90 skeet gun will not work in the ASE 90 Sporting or vice-versa. 1cas

Interesting, my DT-10 skeet has a selector. On the DT-10 the only thing that seems to distinguish it as a skeet gun is that it patterns 50/50 which would suggest the “skeet” part is in the barrel & rib configuration.

Although swapping a safety control of a selectable barrel gun with a selector safety control would with a non-selectable safety control would create a non-selectable gun, the reverse is not necessarily true. The action has to contain some amount of mechanical features to engage with the selector on the safety control. If the action does not contain those features (as with the ASE 90) swapping the safety control won’t work.

I would also throw out that while my new 692 X-Trap has selectable barrels, it also has a lock screw that has to be removed to allow the selector switch to work.
