DT11 Sporting

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.
