The Beretta Firearm
NewsThursday 27 February 2014
When it comes to shooting there are a few brands that come to mind straight away and Beretta is top of the list.
The Italian firearms company has been owned by the same family for around five hundred years first being established in 1526 being the oldest active firearms manufacturers in the world. Beretta are well known for their sizeable catalogue of firearms ranging from semi- automatic pistols. Side-by-side shotguns, hunting rifles, submachine guns and double action revolvers, the list goes on.
Here are a few of the Beretta family favourites at Gunstar.
The Beretta 92 comes in an array of different models (92,92S, 92SB,92F,92FS, 92A1, 96A1). We love the overall look off this firearm. The slick design and polished look gives the Beretta that tough, rugged feel to the firearm. The 92FS is the main weapon that the United States Army, Marine Corps and Air Force use, supplying over 500,000 firearms. The 92FS is one of the most iconic weapons around the world. Beretta say ‘With outstanding accuracy and unparalleled reliability, the time tested and battle proven 92FS is THE World Defender.’ We couldn’t agree more.

The CX4 Storm is a pistol-calibre carbine firearm is used for sports, self-defence and policing (mainly in the US). Produced in 2003 the CX4 weighs around 2.5 kg and is 755mm in length with a barrel length of 422.5mm with a Blowback action. With the added benefit of being able to customise the CX4, its one of the only firearms with the ability to switch some of its features to accommodate left hand shooters, very handy.
The SO6 is a perfect weapon for those who hunt! With outstanding hand engravings of game scenes, this exceptional weapon is a must have to all sportsman. With a 12G Caibre and barrel length of 30inches, the barrels are cold hammer forged and locked to the action by Beretta's synonymous cross-bolt locking system. The SO6 uses walnut briarwood with the end user deciding the final dimensions. The handsome leather carrying case with accessories is standard.
The DT11 is described by Beretta as ‘One Hit, One Shot, One Victory’ and this firearm does exactly that. The DT11 has won more medals in completions than any other shotgun. With Steelium Pro barrels the DT10 has a new look and balance from a wider receiver. The DT11 has an amazing cross-bolt locking system, interchangeable barrel locking shoulders and a highly resistant, nickel-based surface finish. With prices from around £6000 this is a must for any sportsman.
