The new 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 engraving, made through a special high-technology laser, is a homage to Asia:

the homeland of the world's most traditional game bird, the pheasant.
 
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.
