    See that proofmark next to the bbl address. It's off-set which is correct for a factory ribbed gun. The receiver should have the same mark off-set below the rib next to the bbl proofmark. Your photo doesn't show that it's there, so I'm guessing that the receiver wasn't originally ribbed and that the proof mark is on top of the receiver under the rib. My conclusion is that they put a factory vent rib 28 ga bbl on that receiver and then added the right rib piece to the receiver. Note: solid ribbed guns don't have the ribbed piece on the receiver and the proof mark is on top. Do the serial numbers match on the bottom of the bbl and bottom of receiver? If they do, then idk......

    Dear all

    I think what people mean is that often gunmakers will build a 20 gauge gun and then shoe horn a 28 guage out of the same design, not alter stocks etc
    The gun looks Ok to me, it really can't be worth faking this gun

    I have a Beretta siver pigeon in 28 guage, and have owned it for several years, we took it clayshooting the other day and as a ladies/childs gun it is fantastic.
    I tried it and it really breaks clays, I have friends that use them on driven game days

    If I was offered it I would buy it an use it, plenty of ammunition choice even here in the UK

    I hope that is helpful
