Default xtrema shoots to the left?

I have the first model of the xtrema, I shot it on the bench and it seems to shoot to the left anyone heard of this before?

Yes! Aim to the right!

Check for an eye dominance problem, and if that's not it, go to Berettas web site!

Later Bryan

I would have to say that it is not the gun, but the shooter/gun combo. I would go with the fitted suggestion.

I am going to go to the range soon and try it on the bench again. It was about 15 degrees out the last time I shot. (sea ducks)

It's a very common problem with the beretta Xtrema. Most of is has been corrected with the Xtrema 2.

Shoot the gun from a bench and have some one else shoot it also. This will take the fit part out of the equation. Aim the gun as you would a rifle. Shims will adjust the POI some but, not as much as needed with the ones that shoot far left. If the gun does in fact shoot to the left from a bench with more than your self you may want to contact Beretta.

Could also be the choke. I have an Extrema 2 and it shoots straight, but mine also shot to the left when I patterned it with a Primos Jellyhead choke. I got my friends to shoot it and it shot left with them as well. We went as far as putting that jellyhead in my friends benelli and it shot crooked out of that gun as well. My gun shoots straight with every other choke that I have put in it. Just something for you to check out.

I shot it the other day from a bench the other day, and another guy tried it....still shoots left. Beretta says that they will take a look at it and if it's machined wrong they will fix it.

I HAVE AN EXTREMA AND MINE WAS THE SAME WAY YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE SHIMS TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT AND IT WILL BE JUST FINE. GOOD LUCK AND SHOOT STRAIGHT LITTERALLY...................
