What happens when 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 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.
