DT11 ACS: All Competitions Shotgun
The DT11 ACS (All Competition Shotgun) is a top of the line clay target over-under engineered to be versatile for all three types of competition--trap, skeet and sporting clays.
An evolution of the DT10--the Beretta shotgun that won the most gold medals--it enables you to shoot at a professional level in all three disciplines as if you invested three times as much on dedicated premium shotguns. What makes this versatility possible is the revolutionary Beretta B-Fast system: adjustable rib (meaning adjustable point of impact), adjustable comb, adjustable point of balance. And naturally, the DT11 ACS offers you all the winning features of the DT11 family, including a stable, wide receiver, Steelium Pro barrels with elongated forcing cone and the pride and prestige of owning a best-in-class Beretta over-under.
Adjustable Point of Impact, Point of Balance
The Beretta B-Fast system featured on the DT11 ACS is a concept that allows you to quickly and easily adjust the most critical parts of the shotgun to suit each discipline as well as your shooting style, preferences and body-type. The tapered rib (high, 15mm, 10x8mm, with front- and mid-bead) sports a positive click-stop adjustable dial at the front that lets you modify the point of impact from 50/50 to 80/20, and a hex screw in the back to positively lock your choice into place. Also, the point of balance is adjustable through a set of extra weights (provided), so that you may customize the way it feels for your particular swing and shooting style. Out of the box, the shotgun will balance at the hinge pin, giving you a lively feel as well as a stable, smooth swing.
Rock-Solid Adjustable Comb
The stock on the DT11 ACS is fully and easily adjustable for drop and cast, so that no matter which discipline you are shooting, the gun will fit your measurements like a glove and be optimized for the perfect swing. The structure of the adjustable comb is made of a super-tough light alloy to withstand not only years and years of different settings, but also to stay positively in place exactly where you want it. For the same reason, the supports are stout pillars in stainless steel and a patented locking system seals it all as our promise that nothing will move from your preferred settings, even during the most grueling day of competition.
A Winning Shotgun for Your Best Performance
In all respects, the DT11 ACS is a shotgun that you’ll never outgrow regardless of how high you take your skill level, because every detail was designed by some of the world’s foremost experts to help you break more clays. It is built around a vault-like cross-bolt action, 3mm wider than the famed DT10’s and therefore even more durable and more stable in the hands. The single selective trigger breaks at a crisp 3 ½ lbs, which minimizes muscular interference with your swing, while the gun’s center-mass is low and coaxial with the bottom barrel for unmatched stability and negligible muzzle rise. And with its premium-grade Steelium-Pro barrels with perfect concentricity, long forcing cone for minimal shot deformation and extended Optimachoke HP tubes, the DT11 ACS will keep the serious competitor on target and on the podium.
1. Detachable Trigger
The trigger group is easily detachable for quick and trouble-free cleaning and maintenance. Also, the main elements of the trigger group are captive, meaning that you don't have to reassemble and keep track of too many small parts. Out of the box, the trigger breaks at 3.5lbs for a truly crisp and consistent feel.
2. Wide Receiver
The receiver of the DT11 is even wider and its walls thicker than the DT10's. The 3mm additional width will give you a super-stable shooting platform on top of extra durability.
3. Steelium Pro Barrels
Steelium is a proprietary tri-alloy blend that Beretta uses for barrels. The DT11-exclusive Steelium Pro barrels have an extra-long, 480mm (18.9") forcing cone, which gives you less muzzle rise, a quicker follow-up shot, better accuracy, negligible shot deformation and a greater chance to always break the target.
4. B-Fast Stock
The stock of the DT11 ACS is fully adjustable for drop and cast. This easy-to-use feature will not only give you a shotgun that fits your body, but also one that you can tailor for the specific discipline you are shooting (trap, skeet, or sporting clays). Also, you can positively lock your preference into place with the ultra-sturdy patented B-Fast system.
5. B-Fast Rib
The rib of the DT11 ACS is adjustable for height, meaning that you can modify and optimize the point of impact depending on the discipline (trap, skeet or sporting clays). A positive click dial wheel in the front will let you select height, while a robust hex screw in the back will lock your choice into place.
6. B-Fast Balance
Out of the box, the DT11 ACS comes balanced at the hinge-pin. However, depending on your preferences and on your ideal swing for each discipline, you can easily modify the point of balance using the set of weights that comes as an accessory with the shotgun. The weights or "wads" weigh 20 grams (.7 oz) each, and are inserted in the buttstock to tune the point of balance rearwards and make the barrels feel lighter.
