Update - Beretta not interested said it is a user issue and arenít interested in replacing the stock Angry no surprises there mate. Wonít be buying another product where Beretta is the agent, just crap service and they have lost a future customer. Will now look at the option of an after market stock or a different rifle. Any suggestions to replace an 85 Sako Finnlight?


Been a few grizzles on here over time about the service Beretta provides. Have you considered doing a public service and filing a claim with the Disputes Tribunal?

Good luck finding another brand with the same features of cartridge matched action size good feed drop out mag excellent adjustable trigger safety good feed simple design all metal and accurate barrel ....

Your best bet would be to try and get an aftermarket stock like Macmillan, high tech rotorua or even a custom wood one.  If synthetic only buy if its built from scratch for the 85 action in your size.

I would try first a home refinish job on the existing stock eg sandpaper all over and paint it yourself or see if you can get it ceracoted or dip camo.  You've got nothing to lose and you'd end up with a great shaped accurate stock.

Bugger, mine's becoming increasingly sticky, just came out from a weekend away and it was a mess.
Looks like Beretta is not interested worldwide on this.
I'm gonna try the 100% Isopropyl Alcohol or baking soda paste as suggested by JaSa, will let you know how it goes

Probably has absolutely no relation at all, but the rubberized panels on my Zeiss rangefinder went real sticky after only a few years. With some trepidation I attacked them with metholated spirits and after a bit of effort all stickiness was gone and has yet to return.

Sounds like a breakdown of the plasticiser that happens over time, similar to the problems some people have experienced with MSR tents, where they go sticky.

I think that they have improved them, they replaced a lot of the 'faulty' ones a while back, unlike Beretta the NZ agent Ampro Sales have excellent customer service, just make sure you get out there and use your tent!

Well the meths worked a treat, requires a bit of elbow grease but gets the job done.
I see a carbon stock in my future but it sure as f*** won't be a Sako one.

Will be genuinely  interested to hear what you think of the Fierce and if theres much fitting/bedding involved...

What sort of cost are you looking at plus how long to get your order????
