Beretta Waterfowl Optifade Pattern

•       Optimized for a non-frontal engagement angle, since waterfowl will see a predator from any angle

•       Uses lighter colours and starker contrasts, to confuse the prey and to account for the high-contrast environment (horizon line, water shimmering, etc.) where hunting takes place

•       Uses highly detailed micro patterns to match the background colour and texture elements and confuse the bird

The A400 Xtreme Optifade pattern is available at Hunting and Fishing New Zealand stores only. Other A400 Xtreme Camo and Synthetic  are available at all Beretta stockists.

692 Trap

 

The new competition O/U by Beretta.

It is the successful mix of tradition and technology, to provide better ballistics and ergonomics, together with the elegant design that makes this shotgun absolutely outstanding. It includes 3 new core features: Steelium Plus Barrel, Wider Receiver, B-Fast System. It has a new outstanding look.
The receiver design is elegant and technical, with a shiny-polished profile on side plates and bottom, combined with a black-gold finish. Another new feature of the 692 is the composite opening lever. It is, for the first time ever, over-molded with a soft-touch polymeric insert to give amazing “touch & feel” and perfect grip.

Steelium Plus Barrel

Every Beretta barrel has a 3-part internal geometry: cylindrical (the chamber), conic and then cylindrical again. The length of the conic segment has a strong impact on performance of the barrel. Beretta has always been one of the best barrel manufacturers in the world, with more than 500.000 barrels produced per year.

Recently, with the development of the new DT11, Beretta started to enhance the Steelium barrel creating Steelium Pro, a new standard for the very best competition over and under, the DT11. Now Beretta has created a new dedicated barrel for the 692: the Steelium Plus.

Steelium Plus has a 5.5 times longer conic profile than Steelium. The longer conic profile results in better weight distribution, smoother pressure dynamics inside the barrel which in turn results in optimized behaviour of the barrel during the shot giving you improved ballistic performance.

Wider Receiver

A competition O/U should have as much weight as possible in the receiver area, to provide higher stability before and after each shot. The receiver of the new 692 is now wider and it is exactly in the middle between the 682 and the DT11. The Wider Receiver provides improved balance and more stability before and after the shot resulting in better shouldering and faster target acquisition.
B-FAST System

B-FAST is the acronym of “Beretta Fast Adjustment System Technology” and it is a system combining modular adjusting devices specifically designed for Beretta shotguns. Every device that is (or will be in the future) dedicated to adjustability, will be part of the B-FAST system.

B-FAST is currently made of 3 devices; B-FAST Comb, B-FAST Balance and B-FAST Rib.

B-FAST Comb:

Developed for the new DT11, the B-FAST Comb is a strong adjustable stock device that improves dramatically the previous Memory System. Made of steel and aluminum, the B-FAST allows easy and reliable adjustment, together with the memory feature of the colored polymeric wads.

B-FAST Balance:

The B-FAST Balance system is a brand new adjusting device specifically designed to allow all shooters to set their own, specific desired balance through steel wads installed into the stock. The B-FAST Balance is not only smart, but it also allows customisation of the stock length without compromising the system.

All the 692 are factory balanced, with additional wads included in the box, to allow each customer to (eventually) change the standard balance at their own convenience. This is the solution to the natural wood density variability, allowing the shooter the chose their perfect balance between the position of the center of gravity and the overall weight.

DT11 Sporting

 

ONE HIT, ONE SHOT, ONE VICTORY
Born from the legendary DT10 Trident, the Beretta competition over and under that has collected more medals in competition than any other shotguns, the new DT11 will astonish you with its qualities and performance.

New Steelium Pro barrels, a new look, and better balance thanks to the wider receiver, the attention to detail in full respect of design and aesthetics: nothing has been left to chance.

Because the shooter has been our target …. And the DT11’s top performance is the result.


INTRODUCING THE NEW BERETTA STEELIUM PRO BARRELS

Beretta is considered the largest barrel maker in the world.. Steelium technology is a unique manufacturing process that transforms the special tri-alloy steel into an exceptional barrel. Along with deep drilling, cold hammer forging and special vacuum distension, Steelium creates the ideal characteristics for the best ballistic performance available today.

Steelium Pro marries the benefits of the Steelium Technology to a new barrel internal profile. The result is a creation of a progressive conicity that allows the DT11 to fix new performance standards. The new Beretta DT11 barrels boast a new internal profile resulting in

  • REDUCED PERCEIVED MUZZLE RISE
  • INCREASE IN SHOOTING STABILITY
  • INCREASED PENETRATION AND TARGET BREAKAGE
  • QUICKER FIRST SHOT AND SECOND TARGET ACQUISITION

Optimachoke® HP
The progressive Optimachoke® tubes have a new internal profile, formed to enhance shot concentration and distribution.

A NEW LOOK
A new receiver
, slender , elegant,yet robust, is embellished by the contrast between the mat parts (side walls) and the mirror polished ribbon borders that adorn the surface.

Newly designed bridges are internally hollowed, while the side ribs are windowed to improve barrel balance and help dissipate the heat generated with constant shooting.

A new ergonomic top lever enhances the grip, reduces the stress and provides comfort of use for the left-handed shooters.

A new safety/selector switch has been redesigned for better grip and operation.

A new nickel-based finish finely engraved by hand, reduces glare while shooting. The carefully tapered rear of the barrel and the profile of the fences allow rapid target acquisition during instinctive shouldering.

THE UNBELIEVABLE DURABILITY AND THE CONSTANT PERFORMANCE OF THE BERETTA DT11 ARE GUARANTEED BY:

  • A super reliable cross-bolt locking system;
  • The increase of the receiver side wall thickness which adds weight in the baricenter (+ 3 mm) to enhance stability while swinging;
  • The width and shape of the extractors which allows shells to be consistently ejected in a timely and efficient manner;
  • The fore-end irons interchangeable nut, treated for resistance, which guarantees the perfect barrel to fore-end fit, year in and year out.
  • The interchangeable barrel locking shoulders;
  • A highly resistant, nickel-based surface finish.

HIGHLY SELECT WOODS
High quality walnut is hand finished according to the shooter’s choice (oil, Tru Oil or wax finishing). The stock and fore-end can be fitted to each customer’s measurements. The pistol grip and the fore-end are hand-checkered to both ensure a solid grip and to complement the overall design of the shogun.

  • An elegant gun case, in silver polymeric material, on which stands out the Beretta logo, is provided with every DT11.

The DT11 Sporting with adjustable stock will be available in New Zealand from mid 2012.
