Thirty odd years ago Berettal had problems with the hinge lugs either side of the barrel wearing but Browning and Miroku got round it by having a full hinge pin like a side by side. My Browning 325 has had ten thousand cartridges through it and is hardly broken in but if it doesn't fit you it counts for nothing
If you need the stock adjusting to fit you properly, bear in mind that a Beretta stock can be altered more easily due to the design of the Browning action.
I shot a Browning for years and liked it but as I got older (and fatter) it didn’t fit so well and I was told it couldn’t be altered enough to fit properly so I ended up with a Beretta which fits as it should.
It’s not turned me into a rival for Digweed but it is better now I’ve got used to it!
