BERETTA SS06 EXPRESS RIFLES
Bringing a charging bull elephant to its knees or scoring a shoulder
kill-shot on a Cape buffalo are the moments of truth that make big-game
hunting such an adrenaline-raising experience. For dedicated hunters
worldwide, a Beretta Express Rifle in the hand means a trophy on the
wall. Beretta’s almost five centuries of gunmaking help create
Express Rifles that deliver a potent combination of ultra-strong actions
and carefully crafted barrels to comfortably handle today's powerful
ballistics with remarkable accuracy. Express Rifles are not ordinary
firearms. The extreme pressures generated by high-caliber express cartridges
require an action and a locking system that have been manufactured with
extra strength. Barrels, too, must be strong and perfectly rifled for
ideal ballistic performance, joined with absolute precision to ensure
optimum convergence. Drawing on the proven skills and experience of
our master gunsmiths, Beretta has designed higher-strength actions than
those used in traditional shotgun-framed express rifles.
Based on the configurations of the famous SO over-and-unders, the SSO6
Express Rifles have an exceptionally sturdy receiver with side locks
and cold hammer forged barrels. Fitted with a blade front sight and
a V-notch rear sight with a folding leaf, the SS06 barrels can be custom
ordered with claw mounts for a factory-fitted Zeiss® scope, sighted
in at 100 meters. Hand finished, hand checkered stocks and fore-ends
are made from select walnut or walnut briar with a cheek rest. A special
trapdoor compartment for extra cartridges is fitted inside the stock,
and an area under the pistol-grip cap holds a set of spare front sights.
The SSO6 is finished with light engraving on its color case-hardened
receiver. The exquisite SSO6 EELL sports a receiver hand engraved with
game scenes, or a color case-hardened version with 24-carat gold inlaid
animals. All SSO6 Over-and-Under Express Rifles are delivered in a fine
fitted leather case complete with maintenance tools and cleaning kit.
