Beretta’s popular 486 Parallelo has been restyled and now features a deep relief, scroll engraving created using the latest five-axis laser technology.
The beautifully proportioned, round body receiver sports a deep scroll, floral motif which gives a fresh yet elegant look to this classic side by side shotgun.
Five-axis laser technology is capable of embellishing rounded surfaces while maintaining perfect continuity in the design. This type of highly figured, contrast effect engraving typically characterises premium shotguns.
With the deep scroll motif extended to the receiver shoulders, top lever, trigger guard, forend iron and forend tip, the action of this gun is completely captivating.
Additionally, the 486 still benefits from the same technological features – Beretta’s exclusive Triblock system, with its modified demi-block design, allows for a seamless barrel profile in the best English tradition, while the single trigger and V -pring mechanism ensure fast, crisp pulls.
Add to this Beretta’s renowned Steelium barrels with their excellent ballistics and you have what the firm says is the most modern, reliable and sumptuous side-byside.
Available with a traditional straight hand or pistol grip stock, in 12 and 20ga with either 28in or 30in O/C.HP barrels. As a resul, all 486 Parallelo side by-side shotguns are superior steel shot proofed.
This new design is completed with 2.5 grade walnut, carefully selected in terms of colour, density and grain, to give impeccable aesthetics. Balance is further taken into consideration by precisely distributing the weight of all components.
The result is a gun which is easy to handle, and swings beautifully while shooting. A wooden butt pad is carefully matched to the stock for a flawless finish.
The guns are available from shooting sports distributor and Game Fair exhibitor GMK.
