Beretta shotgun part FIRING PIN LEFT UPPER for DT10, DT11, ASEGOLD
The firing pin is a part of the firing mechanism of a firearm that impacts the primer in the base of a cartridge and causes it to fire. In firearms terminology, a striker is a particular type of firing pin where a compressed spring acts directly on the firing pin to provide the impact force rather than it being struck by a hammer. The firing pins for centerfire cartridges usually have a round cross-section and their movement is usually through a hole in the breechblock along the axis of the center of the barrel’s bore.
Note: It is recommended that all BERETTA PARTS be installed by a QUALIFIED and trained gunsmith.
Cleaning your Beretta over and under competition shotgun is important to keep it in good condition and ensure it functions properly. Here’s a guide on how to clean a Beretta over and under shotgun:
At the end of a hunting or shotting session, clean the shotgun and make sure the chokes are properly tightened. Metal surfaces on shotguns without protective surface treatment need to be cleaned thoroughly and lubricated after every use to protect against rust. Use a cotton cloth soaked in Beretta gun cleaner and a cleaning rod to remove firing residues from the barrels. Use a bronze brush if necessary. Always insert the cleaning rod into the cartridge chamber. Run a clean, dry cloth through the bores to remove detergent residues. Lightly oil the bores with Beretta gun oil on a clean cotton cloth.
Never apply too much oil. A buildup of oil will attract dirt, and this can interfere with the shotgun’s operation and reliability. lean the inner face of the receiver (especially the area around the firing pin holes) and oil lightly. Do not allow oil to enter the firing pin holes. The hinge pin area is a very important coupling area. The receiver and fore-end iron are subject to very high loads and if not properly oiled, could cause seizing of parts or shotgun malfunctioning. Always make sure these parts are lubricated, following the instructions provided. Carefully clean the outer surfaces of the shotgun to remove all traces of dirt, sweat and fingerprints. Apply a thin layer of gun oil (good quality) to the shotgun, using a soft cloth.
