's 455 Side-by-Side Express Rifle is built tough to handle the
most powerful loads. In designing the 455, Beretta
left nothing to chance in ensuring the absolute mechanical and
engineering integrity required to handle the specialized loads
mandatory for stalking dangerous game. The 455's action is made
of a special high-strength steel and forged with an elongated,
60 mm plate. This increases the distance between the hinge pin
and the three-lug locking system
to compensate for stress when shooting. To withstand the tremendous
pressure of high-powered cartridges, the sealed receiver has reinforced
sides, and the top tang extends fully up to the stock comb to
further strengthen the attachment of the stock. A carefully arranged
system of an articulated front trigger and an automatic blocking
device eliminates the possibility of simultaneous discharge. The
safety (automatic on request) provides for quick, reliable and
operation. The Boehler steel barrels, joined in perfect alignment
with the sophisticated Demibloc chamber system, undergo repeated
testing throughout the manufacturing process and proofing. The
hand-cut, stepped rib is fitted with a V-notch rear sight with
folding blade and a fixed front sight.
versions of the 455 Side-by-Side Express Rifle are available,
differing only in the level of finish. The
field-finished is elegantly presented with a color case-hardened
action. The 455 EELL features highly detailed Bulino-style game-scene
engraving or intricate scroll work and a select walnut briar stock
and fore-end. An elegant leather case, complete with maintenance
and cleaning tools, is provided.
