Craftsmanship and Precision: A Family Tradition
In 1526, Mastro Bartolomeo Beretta of Gardone was paid 296 ducats to produce 185 arquebus barrels for the Arsenal of Venice. Almost 500 years later, Beretta—still family owned and operated—remains committed to producing superior-quality firearms known and respected around the world for their precision and craftsmanship.
A Sporting Firearms Institution
Daily production of Beretta guns averages approximately 1,500 pieces per day. They produce virtually every type of portable firearm: over-and-under and side-by-side shotguns for hunting and competition, autoloaders and pump-action guns, express double rifles, semiautomatic pistols, and rifles. Sporting firearms make up 90% of Beretta’s production with more than 75% of arms produced being exported to almost 100 countries.
Creators of Fine Sporting Apparel
In the early 1990’s Beretta introduced a line of technologically advanced, yet stylishly understated apparel designed for hunting, clays shooting, and outdoor sports. Sold at gun and specialty shops in Europe and the United States, the Beretta clothing line quickly became well regarded in the hunting apparel arena. Orvis features a full selection of Beretta apparel, including shirts, sweaters, jackets, coats, vests, chaps, and gloves.
The Uncompromising Excellence of Beretta
When you choose Beretta, you can be certain you are not only purchasing fine hunting apparel, you are purchasing an item steeped in a long and distinguished history of uncompromised excellence.
