The 470 Silver Hawk's classic design perfectly combines the traditional
elements and styling characteristics of a side-by-side with the advanced
technology of state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. Technologically
sophisticated laser technology is used to actually fuse the barrel
tubes to the Monobloc, creating the unique Beretta Block™

attachment to mar the perfect alignment of these two all-important
components. The result is more than a seamless assembly of unyielding
strength. It is a classic look that will never be out of date. The
ejection system of the 470 Silver Hawk offers the shooter two choices
for removing spent shotshells.
An innovative selector switch, located on the fore-end iron, provides
for automatic ejection or manual extraction. It's an environmentally
friendly way of keeping spent hulls from littering fields. The patented
locking mechanism of this remarkable gun is precision manufactured
through advanced Electric Discharge Machining (EDM) that removes metal
with astonishing accuracy and repeatability. The innovative "progressive"
bottom locking system ensures a solid lock-up, year after year. The
470 Silver Hawk's durability and operational integrity are assured
by the hard, corrosion-resistant, silver chrome finish on all exposed
metal parts. Every one of these components-from the receiver, to the
bores and chamber, to the elegant fore-end iron, to the top lever,
trigger, trigger guard and trigger plate - are protected by this though,
