Berretta AL2 - Polychoke?
I picked up a 1970's Berretta AL2 12ga, made in Italy, the other day. While parts aren't exactly easy to source, it was cheap and I haven't owned a shotgun in a while.
The Armslist AD said it was a 28" barrel with a poly-choke and my father in law seems to think poly-chokes are the best thing since sliced bread, so I figured it was good enough for me.....It wasn't until I got it home that I realized that it only measured 25.5" to the end of the poly-choke. The barrel is marked 30" full choke, so I assume they had to cut enough off to achieve cylinder bore before putting the poly-choke on.
I go shoot some sort of clays 2-3 time a year (sometimes sporting clays, sometimes trap, sometimes just fun clays in a field) and "might" do rabbit or pheasant once (thinking about turkey next year).....Is the 25" barrel going to make me regret this? Most of the guys that I bust clays with carry 28-30" O/Us.
