The SO Sparviere (Italian for “hawk”) is a premium sidelock over-under shotgun conceived for the upland hunter and shooter wanting a heirloom-quality work of art. The action features upward of 100 hours of engraving by masters carrying a centuries-old tradition, while the total absence of visible screws gives the engraving an uninterrupted blank canvas to express its full beauty. Even the visible internal parts are superbly finished and engraved by hand. As with Beretta’s premium sidelock shotguns, the SO Sparviere is executed to suit the personal taste and requirements of the owner–from the sophisticated engravings to the gold-inlays to the dimensions of the walnut briar stock.
The SO Sparviere features a unique, Beretta innovative system to open the two sideplates and get access to the inside firing mechanism.
The class ic Beretta sidelocks can be easily and rapidly break open to the side, by actioning the safety/barrel selector.
Past the safety position of the switch, the two sideplates will simultaneously snap into the open position facilitating inspection and maintenance of the locks.
