At Beretta, the best materials, the most accurate CNC machining, and the highest levels of craftsmanship – from master barrel makers, to gunsmiths, to engravers, to stock makers - operate in perfect synergy and with a common goal:  To make a classic shotgun that is also modern, aesthetically superior, lightweight, perfectly balanced and capable of guaranteeing impeccable performance for generations to come.

Machined from a solid block of special, high resistant tri-alloy steel, the receiver boasts all the parts directly made from the integral piece. No part is welded or precision cast. Exceptional resistance and flawless performance are ensured for generations of constant use.

The trigger of the Beretta SO10 over-and-under is made from precious titanium to ensure superior strength and light weight.



The barrels are formed of extremely resistant steel made of a special nickel-chromium-molybdenum alloy. The cartridge chambers and the bores are hard-chromed for extra corrosion resistance, extended barrel life and more consistent shot patterns. The deep and gloss blueing of the barrels is the result of repeated  black oxidations and painstaking hand work. All the metal surfaces are polished carefully by  skilled Beretta artisans.

Made of stainless steel, the tubes  are engineered to resist steel shot stress and corrosion.

The walnut wood used to craft the stock and fore-end is carefully singled out  for its grain quality, color and strength. The skill of the stock-maker and his ability with the age-old tools, such as razor-sharp chisels and gouges, rasps, emery cloths and files, are wisely used to create custom dimensioned stocks and fore-ends. The checkering of the wooden parts is also patiently hand executed and provides a functional anti-slip grip surface. Lastly come polishing by means of repeated coats of oil or wax applied by hand to enhance the grain, color and brightness of the wood.
