Beretta AL 391 Urika 2 Gold No. J39TB26 3-inch 20 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The heaviest gas gun tested, the Beretta Urika 2 was the most reliable shotgun. Though it has an over-complicated design in our view, this example proved reliable with no cleaning whatsoever for more than thousand rounds of ammo. It was by far the best-looking shotgun of the test, with the best wood and tasteful engraving. For a high-volume mixture of clays and stationary wing-shooting, the Urika excels. For a lightweight field gun, you might look elsewhere.

This latest version of the 391 action features Beretta’s spinning, toothed gas piston. Beretta says that this allows the Urika 2 to go 50% longer between cleanings than ever before. We don’t disagree; we’ve already put more than 1000 rounds through this Urika 2 without a thorough cleaning, and we have yet to have a single malfunction.
Well-figured walnut, properly matched in color and tone, tasteful engraving with gold accents, a jeweled bolt and shell carrier, and a gold trigger all combined to make the Beretta Urika II easily the best-looking shotgun of the test.
