The high-tech Micro Core recoil pad uses 21st-century polymers to both dampen recoil and prevent muzzle rise. A good recoil pad helps a shooter maintain focus.
Beretta's B-Fast adjustable comb allows precise tailoring of the stock's drop and cast. A shotgun that fits the shooter properly does a better job of pointing where he is looking.
The stock is choice European walnut, hand-checkered, and oil-finished. It has a broad butt to spread recoil over a larger area, and it is hand-fitted to the action.
The ergonomically designed top lever eases the repetitive opening of the gun. This might seem like a small detail, but it makes a difference over the course of hundreds of rounds.
A Greener-style crossbolt engages massive lugs on the sides of the upper barrel, providing one of the strongest barrel-to-action lockups found on the market.
The large barrel selector and safety allows the shooter to quickly choose the barrel with the proper choke for the target presented.
The trigger is adjustable to suit individual finger length and can also be set for right- or left-handed shooters.
The detachable trigger (DT) group permits instant replacement of a broken trigger, and easy maintenance. As a safety measure, the gun nees to be open to change the trigger.
Massive V hammer mainsprings provide ultra-fast lock time and superior, crisp trigger pulls.
The wide receiver is designed for increased between-the-hands weight and balance. Because of its massive construction, the action is immensely strong and will last for generations.
Extra-large extractors grab the shell's rim for positive extraction and ejection of fired hulls.
Hand-fitted barrels are hammer-forged and vacuum-distended for molecular stability, then meticulously fitted to the action. This is old-world craftsmanship meeting modern technology.
Separated barrels are lighter and faster to swing, and the ventilation allows for better cooling and less heat mirage.
The adjustable rib lets the shooter precisely set pattern impact from nearly flat to very high, allowing each shooter to adjust the point of impact for his sight picture.
The lightweight Steelium barrels are tapered from the chamber to the choke-tube skirt, providing recoil reduction and dense, even patterns with less choke constriction.
Beretta's Optima HP screw-in chokes provide a wide choice of pattern densities, and are engineered to relieve firing stress where the chokes thread into the barrel. ––John Taylor
