Beretta Shotguns

The centuries-old Italian firm Fabbrica d'Armi P. Beretta S.p.A., or simply Beretta, has been controlled by the same family ever since they began producing hand-hammered single-fire muskets for the Venetian aristocracy in the 16th century. Founder Mastro Bartolomeo Beretta, who amassed a fortune with the sale of custom-made barrels to the Republic of Venice fleet, founded the company in 1852.

The legendary arms maker has crafted weapons for every major European conflict since the mid-1500s. Today, Beretta is the official sidearm supplier to the U.S. military. Although Beretta is now widely associated with its high-quality high-performance precision handguns, the firearms maker's bread and butter is catering to discerning hunters.

Known for merging age-old craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, Beretta produces some of the world's most coveted shotguns. Whether side-by-side or over-and-under, Beretta's offerings are the scatterguns of choice for field, competition, and tactical use.


Quick Facts

  • Beretta invented the breech-loading cannon, an early forerunner to the shotgun, in 1650
  • The firearms manufacturer supplied Napoleon’s army until its fortunes changed with a decisive defeat at the Battle of Waterloo
  • Ernest Hemingway used a Beretta S03 model shotgun for duck hunting in Venice and around his Cuban retreat
