Beretta Introduces the Ultraleggero – The Lightest Steel Shotgun in the Field

Carrying a shotgun around all day whether it’s for bird season or just out to the trap or skeet range can be a chore sometimes. Most over-under shotguns don’t traditionally have slings and most shooters will opt to just carry the shotgun over the shoulder or slung under their arm. That being said, I don’t know anyone who has ever complained that a shotgun was “too light” and Beretta has now unveiled their lightweight Ultraleggero (literally “ultralight”) over-under shotgun for the hunting and sporting community. The shotgun is built off of the already existing Beretta 690 action, but trimmed down to be a sub 7lb over-under shotgun.

The Ultraleggero begins a whole new chapter in the history of lightweight over-and-under shotguns, pushing the boundaries of design beyond all previous imagination; delivering the strength and reliability of a steel receiver but with an exceptionally low weight, something that had only previously been achieved with aluminium actions. Thanks to the use of state-of-the-art engineering techniques, Beretta has “skeletonised” the receiver, including only the structural elements that are essential for the resistance and performance of this shotgun. The result is a lightweight yet sturdy shotgun ideal for hunters looking for a fast-handling gun that swiftly gets onto the game. Enjoy your hunt, gun weight will no longer be a burden.

The Beretta Ultraleggero is just 2.8 kilogram (6.17 lbs) with a 20″ barrel. Upon purchasing an Ultraleggero you’ll also receive an ABS hard case, a set of 5 chokes with a choke key, lubricating oil, and a card to access the online user manual. You’ll also receive an opportunity to register your new shotgun and receive a free Ultraleggero gun sock. While heavier shotguns are great for stability and consistency, a lightweight fast-moving shotgun is perfect for hitting fast-moving flying targets.
