Beretta 486 by Marc Newson

What happens when the oldest firearms company in the world offers the design of the most traditional and elegant shotgun – the side by side – to Australian Industrial Designer Marc Newson?


A masterpiece is created.


The 486 by Marc Newson is a respectful re-interpretation of the traditional side by side with an innovative technological solution: the wood-bridge. Thanks to this original design, the safety catch is no longer a remote mechanism on the end of the receiver, but is now seamlessly set into the high-grade walnut, almost like a bridge, creating a beautiful element of distinction.


A new level of aesthetics

The 486 by Marc Newson features engravings of dragons snaking between flowers in a style that references traditional Asian illustrations of flora and fauna. The engraving continues onto the trigger guard, which is seamlessly integrated into the receiver and covers the trigger system. Its “woodbridge” better unifies the overall design of the gun by lowering the end of the receiver so that the safety catch can seamlessly flow with the gun’s linear aesthetic rather than interrupt it.

Features

Woodbridge

The traditional tail of the receiver has been lowered allowing the wood to separate the receiver and the safety/selector like a wooden bridge over the steel. This unique design makes it extremely elegant and instantly recognisable.

Edgeless receiver

Marc Newson has used the characteristics of steel and modern machining to elevate the concept of the “round body”, bringing it to a new level. The receiver is edgeless and the lines flow through the entire surface of the shotgun with no sharp edges or breaks.

Unique engraving

The engraving is homage to Asia: the homeland of the world’s most traditional game bird, the pheasant. It is engraved by high-tech lasers to ensure the best texture wrap over the entire surface and also allows for a deep contrast and sharp resolution.

World's best barrel

The cold-hammer forged Beretta OptimaBore barrels are built to be tough and to last for generations. Moreover, the Triblock technology makes the barrel truly elegant by eliminating the welding lines.

New opening lever design

This element has been specially conceived to emphasise its independence from the rest of the shotgun.

New guard fixing

Another distinctive feature is the fixing of the trigger guard to the receiver. While most shotguns screw the guard to the bottom of the receiver, the 486 by Marc Newson inserts the trigger guard into a milled guide. The result is a perfect junction of two surfaces.

Slim fore-end

The fore-end of the new 486 by Marc Newson is leaner and more streamlined, while the coupling point between the receiver and the fore-end iron has been reduced to a minimum.

Trigger system

The trigger system is an Anson type, with leaf springs.
