    Beretta 84 Take-Down Fix

    So my Beretta 84 has the usual take-down issue of jamming when the take-down lever is rotated, and the slide/barrel/recoil guide&spring won't slide forward and off the frame. It does come apart nicely if you jack it back to the slide hold-back and let it fly forward and off into a pillow or couch. But basically, the recoil guide rod won't stay in the small under-barrel notch where it is supposed to ride. My Browning BDA does NOT have this issue, and yet the two are so similar to be identical twins.

    So what's the fix? Can you Dremel out the under-barrel notch a little larger to hold the recoil guide rod more securely? Will that keep the recoil guide rod secured after a few (many) cycles of the action?

    Any ideas?

    I did join there, and got it figured out as close as it cane be. But I liked the 84BB so much I bought it some new clothes (wood grips) and adopted a younger 84F brother for it ....

    If you do a search in the Beretta Forum you can actually download
    the whole owners manual for the 84BB. Or post your question.
    There are some really knowledgable members on that forum.
    If you ever want to turn that 84F into a two tone you can buy a
    nickel barrel assembly from CDNN for under $100

    Thanks! I hadn't seen those parts listed there before. I might have to think about that ....
