What happens when Beretta, the oldest firearms company in the world, offers the design of the most traditional and elegant shotgun – the side by side – to Marc Newson?
A masterpiece is created.
The 486 by Marc Newson is a respectful re-interpretation of the traditional side by side with an innovative technological solution: the wood-bridge.
Thanks to this original design, the safety catch is no longer a remote mechanism on the end of the receiver, but is now seamlessly set into the high-grade walnut, almost like a bridge, creating a beautiful element of distinction.
The time honoured concept of the “rounded action” is perfectly expressed in the edgeless receiver, while the statement top lever has a unique identity created by its bold design.
The 486 by Marc Newson embodies the essential characteristics of a luxury Beretta shotgun: the constant pursuit of innovation combined with five hundred years of manufacturing excellence.
