BERETTA S09 SHOTGUN
Form, function and materials combine to create a unique masterpiece:
the Beretta SO9. Details really do make the difference in this exquisite
gun. Wood is selected from the world's finest forest sources. Barrels
and actions are created from only the most durable, high-grade steel
and alloys. Engravings are rendered by renowned master craftsmen and
signed for posterity. Fit and finish are nothing less than flawless.
What emerges is more than a mere gun for an individual shooter…
but a one-of-a-kind firearm destined to be enjoyed for generations.
The remarkable Beretta SO9 over-and-unders represent a melding of the
world's most popular gauges (12, 20, 28 and .410) with the world's most
prized engraving… brought together in the premier example of the
Beretta Premium Grade. The true sidelock actions and receivers of each
of the four available SO9 models are specific and proportioned to each
gauge, matching the respective mechanical and ballistic requirements.
Consequently, the shotguns are extraordinary elegant, perfectly balanced,
functionally flawless and fully capable of providing excellent performance
for generations to come.
Designed for decades of service, the Beretta SO9's advanced locking
system is constructed with a double longitudinal bolt that engages internal
Monobloc lugs in the receiver body. These are positioned above the upper
barrel axis to minimize stress when firing, and to provide exceptional
longevity. The fully functional side-locks are mounted on pins machined
directly from the side plates, eliminating the need for through-pins.
This also enhances the aesthetic appearance of the receiver and presents
the master engraver an uninterrupted canvas on which to express his
creativity. Upon request, the SO9's side plates can be fitted with removable
thumb screws to enable quick, easy inspection and cleaning of the jewel-like
SO9 receivers and furnishings are exquisitely
hand engraved by master craftsmen using the bulino or hammer and chisel
technique and individually signed by the artist. Clients may have these
customized, choosing from fine English scroll, classic game scenes or
even a special order custom engraving of their own preference.
The barrels of the SO9 are cold hammer forged from pre-bored bars of
Boehler Antinit steel, ensuring absolute concentricity, light weight,
exceptional strength and corrosion resistance. Even the insides of the
barrels are polished to a mirror finish. Beretta's patented Monobloc
system guarantees perfect barrel alignment and outstanding strength.
The meticulous blueing process imparts a high-luster finish designed
to endure through the years as the gun becomes a family heirloom.
Stocks of select European walnut briar are shaped, then hand-carved
and carefully oil-finished.
Extra fine-line hand checkering is then applied
for exceptional appearance and a non-slip grip.
The pistol or English stock and the fore-end
are constructed and sized to the customer's specific requirements. A
mechanical-type, non-selective single trigger is standard, although
a classic double trigger may be installed at the customer's request.
Every SO9 is supplied with a fine fitted leather case and a complement
of maintenance tools and accessories.
