The sleek, low profile, action feeds all types of shells making it also suited for the occasional upland or waterfowl hunt. Its raised parallel comb lets the eye glide naturally along the raised target rib and to align the dual-bead sights. The unique Blink technology, is a gas-operating system that is capable of delivering two shots in less than half a second, while also integrating an easy-maintenance self-cleaning piston. The cold-hammer forged barrel is made of Beretta’s Steelium with a chrome-plated bore and Optima Bore HP choke tubes. The receiver has a bright-blue finish, while the stock has a Micro-Core buttpad. This 12 gauge has a 28 barrel. The stock features Beretta’s Kick-Off system within the buttstock.
