Main Features the new 486 by Marc Newson

The traditional tail of the receiver has been lowered

allowing the wood to separate the receiver and the safety/selector

like a wooden bridge over the steel.

This unique design makes the 486 by Marc Newson extremely elegant

and instantly recognizable.

Edgeless receiver.

The traditional design of side by side shotguns has always been very simple and elegant.

Over the years, the “round body” design has been introduced

to emphasize the slimness and lightness of the gun.

Marc Newson has used the characteristics of steel and modern machining to elevate the concept of the “round body”,

bringing it to a new level.

The receiver is edgeless and the lines flow through the entire surface of the shotgun with no sharp edges or breaks.

   

Engraving.

The engraving is a clear homage to Asia as the homeland of the pheasant.

This unique design is made possible by the high-tech laser technology

used in the manufacturing process.

This ensures the best texture wrap over the entire surface of the receiver

and also allows for a deep contrast and sharp resolution in all the details of the engraving.

 

World’s best barrels.

The cold-hammer forged Beretta OptimaBore barrels are built to be tough and to last for generations.

Moreover, the Triblock technology makes the barrel truly elegant

by eliminating the welding lines.

The hand-made polishing gives the surface the perfect finish,

typical of the most refined shotguns.   

 

New opening lever design.

This element has been specially conceived to emphasize its independence

from the rest of the shotgun.

 

New guard fixing.

Another distinctive feature is the fixing of the trigger guard to the receiver.

While most shotguns screw the guard to the bottom of the receiver,

the 486 by Marc Newson inserts the trigger guard into a milled guide.

The result is a perfect junction of two surfaces,

which creates a higher aesthetic value.

    

Slim forend.

The forend of the new 486 by Marc Newson is leaner and more streamlined,

while the coupling point between the receiver and the forend iron

has been reduced to a minimum.

 

Trigger system.

The trigger system is an Anson type, with leaf springs.
