    Hey there everyone! So I bought my first shotgun back in October and ended up getting the A300 Outlander. I must say that the gun has functioned pretty well up to this point. Now the bad news, I was going to clean it yesterday when the gun slipped from my hands and hit the floor. The gun fell a mere 2’ at most onto a carpeted floor and broke in half at the butt of the gun. After assessing the damage it looks to have broke at the threads that hold the stock slide tube in place. I ordered the new part but I still need to extract the threaded end stuck in the back of the receiver. Any ideas on the extraction or replacement of part? Thanks for any help!

    I am sorry to see that, but I would be on the horn with the manufacturer and have them fix it - that should not happen

    To get the broken "bolt" out you drill a hole in the bolt with cordless drill. Then you use this tool set.
    You put the right tool into the hole you drilled and it uncrews when you tighten the tool.
    The threads on it are backwards.
    It's at autozone.
    Advanced auto parts.
    Wherever.

    It's $18 for a bolt extractor set.
    Sometimes drilling the hole is enough to loosen the broken piece. Wedge a hobby screwdriver in hole and try unscrewing.

    Above is what I'd recommend also but I'd think you may need to hit it with a little heat as well to break loose the locktite first.

    I would absolutely call Beretta , that should be under warranty. Have you already checked on that ?

    I contacted Benelli on a 1990’s SBE couple years ago. A weld broke on the barrel ring after a volley. Barrel was hanging loose.
    Benelli said well we got a 10 year warranty but send it in we’ll fix it!

    I would definitely get in contact with Beretta, especially since the firearm is only 4 months old.. While the store where you bought it may not be able to fix it they may be able to be of assistance in getting it replaced or fixed.

    They should be able to ship and receive the firearm saving some hassle and coin.
