A Timeless Classic
Through years of evolution, proven side-by-side shotguns have exhibited the best of Beretta’s skill. Remarkably light and responsive, they incorporate features that enhance performance and durability while preserving their simplicity…appealing to sportsmen worldwide with their flawless operation, their superior durability and their unsurpassed ease of handling. 

Technically Superior 
The patented locking mechanism of the Silver Hawk is precision manufactured through advanced Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) that removes metal with astonishing accuracy and consistency. The innovative “progressive” bottom locking system ensures a solid lock-up, year after year. The 470 Silver Hawk’s durability and operational integrity are assured by the hard, corrosion-resistant, silver chrome finish on all exposed metal parts. Every one of these components – from the receiver to the bores and chamber, to the elegant fore-end iron, to the top lever, trigger, trigger guard and trigger plate – is protected by this tough, stylish finish. The elegant, low profile receiver is made of a nickel-chromium-molybdenum steel alloy and features fine hand chased engraving. The barrels of the Beretta 470 side-by-side are made of “Excelsior” high tensile steel. Consequently, the barrels are extraordinarily resistant yet lightweight, engendering optimum balance and superb control.

In a Word, Innovation
Sophisticated laser technology is used to actually fuse the barrel tubes to the Monobloc, creating the unique Beretta Block - a solid-steel barrel chamber set with no brazing or other mechanical attachment to mar the perfect alignment of these two all-important components. The result is more than a seamless assembly of unyielding strength. It is a classic look that will never be outdated. Complementing the lines of the Silver Hawk are the smooth ribs, concave and deep-set, which also contribute to rapid target acquisition. The new 12 gauge Optima-Choke® tubes are longer and slimmer than those of a conventional 12 gauge, with an elongated cone for minimized pellet deformation and improved shot patterns.

Refining Perfection
The classic English-style stock and slender, finely checkered fore-end are made of selected walnut with traditional oil finish to highlight the natural beauty of the wood. The trigger guard, which extends beyond the trigger plate up to the stock, and the oriented screws are fine details which show the particular attention paid to these excellent side-by-sides. The fore-end is further enhanced with a fore-end iron featuring fine engraving.Even the safety system of the 470 side-by-side displays considerable innovation. Offering a traditional manual safety - plus an automatic safety, on request - our exhaustive study of the mechanism has led to superb security. If the action is not totally closed, the top lever safety immediately blocks the firing mechanism. The safety on the hammers and sears is designed to endure the impact of violent blows or falls and prevent accidental discharge.

The Select Few
Constructed in 12 and 20 gauge models, with a single selective or double trigger, the 470 is available in the classic Silver Hawk model - marked by the gold inlaid hawk's head on the top lever - and also in the new 470 EL version. This luxurious gun features color case hardened side plates applied without screws and trimming, and gamebirds depicted in gold. The stock, fore-end and buttplate are crafted from the highest quality walnut, finely grained and carefully polished. The 470 EL is also equipped with an attractive, durable carrying case.
