Beretta Issues Statement on New Maryland Gun Control Law

 

The firearm companies owned by Beretta Holding in Maryland-Beretta U.S.A. Corp., Benelli U.S.A. Corporation and Stoeger Industries, Inc.-have all been deeply concerned about Governor Martin O’Malley’s effort this year to impose broad new restrictions on the rights of Maryland citizens to buy firearms, as well as on the types of firearms and firearm magazines they can acquire. The Companies have submitted comments before the Maryland legislature and to the press condemning these efforts and stating that the Governor’s anti-gun activity is causing them to evaluate whether they want to remain in this State.

Notwithstanding some media reports to the contrary, those efforts have had some beneficial effects.

Through the Companies’ legislative efforts and with assistance led by Delegate Joe Vallario and others provisions were stripped out of the final Bill that would have immediately required an immediate move of certain operations out of Maryland. The parts of the legislation that remained, though–and that were not deleted notwithstanding the Beretta Holding companies efforts to do so–remain offensive not only to our companies as firearm manufacturers, importers and distributors and as investors in jobs, taxes and income within the State of Maryland, but also to those of us who, as Maryland citizens, will now be encumbered with obstacles to our exercise of our Constitutional rights–such as a requirement we now be fingerprinted like a criminal before we can buy a handgun-without providing a commensurate benefit in reducing crime.

The resulting law that passed is not acceptable, even with the improvements we were able to obtain. In short, the law that finally passed went from being atrocious to simply being bad.

The question now facing the Beretta Holding companies in Maryland is this: What effect will the passage of this law–and the efforts of Maryland government officials to support its passage–have on our willingness to remain in this State?

In that respect we are mindful of two objectives: We will not let passage of this legislation prevent us from providing on-time delivery of our products to our U.S. Armed Forces and other important customers. We also will not go forward in a way that compounds the insult made to our Maryland employees by their Governor and by the legislators who supported his efforts.

Prior to introduction of this legislation the three Beretta Holding companies located in Maryland were experiencing growth in revenues and jobs and had begun expansion plans in factory and other operations. The idea now of investing additional funds in Maryland and thus rewarding a Government that has insulted our customers and our products is offensive to us so we will take steps to evaluate such investments in other States. At the same time, we will continue our current necessary operations within Maryland and we are thankful for and welcome the continued support of our employees as we do so.

 

Beretta A400 Action 20ga. Garners “Editor’s Choice” Award from Outdoor Life

 

ACCOKEEK, MD – Beretta USA was honored during the recent 142nd Annual NRA Meetings and Exhibits in Houston, TX when presented with the “Editor’s Choice Award” by Outdoor Life for the new A400 Action 20ga. Outdoor Life editors summed up the features of the A400 Action 20 ga. best when citing their reasons behind the award, “this 20-gauge from Beretta, the first sub-gauge in the A400 series, is brimming with amenities and useful features. The kick-off system is one of the better recoil-reducing designs on the market, and by adding it to this shotgun Beretta has made an outstanding semi-auto for high-volume bird shooting. ….We liked the looks of the gun too. The finish on the receiver is distinctive without being tacky, and the grain-enhancing finish on the wood gives it a classy look. It also shouldered, swung, and shot like a dream. For all these reasons, the A400 XPLOR Action is our Editor’s Choice shotgun for 2013.”

“This recognition, especially considering the quality and depth of the competition, is very gratifying,” says Ryan Muety, Vice President of Brand and Channel Marketing. “Beretta continues to invest significant time and resources to ensure that our shotguns meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. It was only natural that we chose to expand the exceptionally popular A400 Xplor line to include a sub-gauge appropriate to the upland market where the A400 Action excels. Muety went on to add that, “as a 500-year-old company, our history, heritage and lifestyle are sacred to the Beretta brand and to be recognized for it by one’s peers makes it resonate all the more.”

Outdoor Life honors the industry’s best with their yearly “Gun Test” which are determined through a rigorous three-step process that includes inspection of the internal components and machining, range performance, and overall design and feature set.

Beretta Unveils Newest Pistol This Morning

 

At the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Houston, Texas today, Italian firearm legend Fabbrica D’Armi Pietro Beretta announced their newest pistol innovation featuring integral laser and light technologies furnished by LaserMax. Chambered in .380 ACP, the Beretta Pico™ can be modified to .32 ACP with a simple barrel replacement. In fact, every element of the pistol was designed for user customization, from the frame to the quick-change dovetail sights. Light, durable, and easy to draw from concealment, the Pico represents an enviable entry by Beretta into the popular micro-compact pistol market. With base models starting at just $399, these clever USA-made pistols are expected to fly off the shelves as soon as they begin shipping in August.

Measuring a slender 18mm at its widest point, the Beretta Pico is distinguished from rival micro-compact pistols by a truly unique modular design. The pistol’s stainless steel slide assembly encapsulates a discrete sub-chassis which bears the firearm serial number. In contrast to conventional frame serialization, this attribute enables the firearm to accept an array of interchangeable polymer frames at the user’s discretion. Recognizing that laser sighting dramatically improves shooting performance while white light helps quickly identify a threat, Beretta commissioned LaserMax to supply frames with integrated tactical lights and lasers as upgrades for the Pico.

“It was Beretta’s objective to provide the finest selection of enhancements to the cutting-edge Pico pistol platform and LaserMax is delighted to have been selected for the collaboration,” explained Jeff Mock, LaserMax VP of Engineering. “Our design teams worked extremely well together and the result was a fully-integrated system that we feel is far greater than the sum of its parts.” In both LaserMax frame configurations, the light source, electronics and power supply are encased within the dust cover area, seamlessly fusing the functional optics with the pistol frame and adding no bulk to interfere with concealment. Rafe Bennett, VP of Product Marketing for Beretta, described LaserMax as a “vital partner” and the laser and light frames as the “key elements” in Pico’s accessory lineup. Bennett further emphasized that it was LaserMax’s “diligence and professionalism” that made the Pico project possible on an accelerated time line. In his view, the marriage of laser sight expertise and pistol development know-how has yielded the “perfect laser or light solution for an ultra compact pistol.”

The Beretta Pico and LaserMax frame combinations will be offered as completed firearm assemblies and the laser and light frame options will also be sold separately as an upgrade to the base model. Those wishing to add a splash of color will have the opportunity to select black, flat dark earth, white and purple frames to complement the Pico’s stainless steel slide. For more information on the new Beretta Pico pistol, please visitwww.berettausa.com.

Now in its 24th year, LaserMax is a market leading producer of premium laser systems. Specializing in the design and manufacture of rugged and innovative firearm sighting solutions for military, law enforcement and commercial markets worldwide, the company also delivers premium laser products and optical systems for the semiconductor, aerospace, biomedical and telecommunications industries. Since the company’s first laser inventions in 1989, LaserMax has grown to become a global leader in laser systems, developing significant intellectual property and being awarded several primary patents in laser technology.

Beretta Announces A400 Xcel

Accokeek, MD- Your competitors will tremble in fear after catching a glimpse of the tell-tale blue receiver as you step to the line with the new A400 Xcel sporting shotgun from Beretta. Available soon to competition shooters across the nation, this latest addition to the A400 family of semi-automatic shotguns features many of the same innovative technologies found on the A400 Xplor Unico and Xplor Light.

These three revolutionary shotguns share the following technological advances: the Blink® operating system that allows the shotgun to cycle 36% faster than any other shotgun; the recoil dissipating Kick-Off® system which reduces felt recoil by 60%; the lightweight Micro-Core recoil pad and the very best cold-hammer forged barrels in the world featuring the Optima Bore HP® geometry, delivering unparalleled ballistic performance.

Competition shooters however will find three features unique to the new A400 Xcel; the pioneering Gun Pod, the Balance Cap System and the receiver, both of which feature a unique finish exclusive to Beretta. Available as both a standard feature and as an aftermarket addition, the Gun Pod delivers a digital readout of the ambient air temperature, the cartridge pressure of the round fired and the overall number of rounds fired through the shotgun; vital information the serious shooter cannot live without.

Three interchangeable weights comprise the Balance Cap System allowing shooters to achieve that perfect point where the shotgun becomes but an extension of them. An anodized finish on the balance cap protects the system from the elements allowing the shooter to compete anytime, anywhere.

Chambered for 2 ¾” and 3″ shells, the Xcel performs time and again from the endless practice rounds to that final round, making it the perfect semi-automatic competition shotgun. The royal blue anodized finish featured on the receiver, as well as on the balance cap, announces to the world that you chose the Beretta Xcel. Visit www.A400Xplor.com for more information on this new competition shotgun, and the entire A400 family of shotguns.

Beretta Rolls out Xplor Light Shotgun

Accokeek, MD (November 16, 2010) All that remains within the Beretta warehouse are shards of speckled egg shells as Beretta unleashes the lightest predator of its kind, the A400 Xplor Light. Shipping now to dealers across the nation, this new shotgun truly is the offspring of the A400 Xplor Unico, aka the “Green Monster,” featuring many of the same innovative technologies.

These monsters of shotgun innovation share the following technological advances: the Blink® operating system that allows the shotgun to cycle 36% faster than any other shotgun; the recoil dissipating Kick-Off® system which reduces felt recoil by 60%; the lightweight Micro-Core recoil pad and the very best cold-hammer forged barrels in the world featuring the Optima Bore HP® geometry, delivering unparalleled ballistic performance.

The similarities end there, as the A400 Xplor Light weighs just 6.28 pounds, making it the lightest Beretta semi-automatic on the market today. Chambered for 2 ¾” and 3″ shells, the light green receiver performs time and again from the lightest loads to the last load of the day, making it the perfect hunting companion; comfortable enough to carry all day in the pheasant fields of South Dakota or continuously shoulder under the dove-blackened skies of Argentina.
