Beretta USA Launches Ultraleggero Hunting Shotgun

posted on September 19, 2022

Designed specifically to produce the lightest steel receiver shotgun on the market, the Beretta Ultraleggero delivers the same strength and balance characteristic standard to Beretta shotguns, but with a lighter steel receiver. The gun boasts techno-polymer receiver inserts, an Extralight 30mm recoil pad, and Steelium Optima-Bore HP barrels with no side rib, resulting in a lightweight yet sturdy shotgun ideal for Upland hunters looking for a fast-handling firearm.

“The Beretta Ultraleggero is for those upland bird hunters looking for a light, rugged and innovative over and under shotgun,” Logan Killam, product manager of Shotguns, said. “At only 6.4 pounds, the steel-framed Ultraleggero can comfortably be carried and trusted on the longest days in the field thanks to its uniquely designed receiver, barrels, and stock.”

The Beretta Ultraleggero is the lightest steel shotgun in the field (compared to similar steel receiver shotguns) thanks to its steel receiver with internal relief cuts, Optima-Choke® HP barrels with no side ribs, a stock with an increased cavity, an aluminum forend iron system, and a trigger guard.

The new shotgun, which boasts an increased cavity in its 2.5-class walnut stock, is chambered for every cartridge with a 3-inch chamber, allowing the hunter to shoot magnum cartridges with lead, steel, and steel HP shot loads. Its receiver features techno-polymer inserts with a floral motif on the side plates, which can be customized and 3D printed with personal designs. Finally, the gun's 2.5-grade walnut furniture wears an oiled finish to ensure an easier restoration of scratches or damage caused by adverse weather conditions.
