1. Featuring a design unique to Beretta, the SL3 action offers the perfect action/barrel locking system, increasing the robustness and rigidity of the platform. The barrels are anchored at three separate points; hinge pins, lower hooks and locking pins. The opening and closing of the gun will remain smooth and effortless over time and no matter how much use (during validation the SL3 has shot more than 11,500 magnum cartridges with no issues).
2. Firing Mechanism. Fast, crisp trigger pulls thanks to the hammer leaf spring, as used in our medal winning competition shotguns.
3. Newly designed Ejectors are even more reliable and easier to inspect and clean.
4. Optima Bore HP barrels. The main ingredients which drive the stunning performance of the Beretta Steelium barrels are: the exclusive tri-alloy Beretta Steel (Ni, Cr, Mo) which is used, the deep drilling, the cold hammering process and the vacuum distension. The OptimaBore HP barrel profile has been specifically designed to provide excellent patterns with every type of shot: lead, steel and other lead alternatives.

The unique shape of the top lever has been created to match the elegant lines of the top of the receiver. The tail end of the top lever is tapered, blending the slim shape of the receiver into the wood. A new design of trigger guard gives the SL3 a contemporary look.
Engravings are created with Beretta’s most modern and best in class technology: a 5-axis laser, able to engrave rounded surfaces with perfect continuity of the pattern. You can choose from three different engravings designed by Beretta’s Master
