Big game hunting, for those who partake in it, is an extraordinary and enthusiastic experience.
For dedicated hunters worldwide, a Beretta Express Rifle in their hand means a trophy on the wall. Express Rifles are not ordinary firearms.
Beretta’s almost five centuries of gunmaking help create Express Rifles that deliver a potent combination of ultra-strong actions and carefully crafted barrels to comfortably handle today’s powerful ballistics with remarkable accuracy.
455 SIDE-BY-SIDE EXPRESS RIFLES. INCREDIBLY RESISTANT
In designing the 455 Express, 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 special high-strength steel and forged with an elongated, 60 mm plate.
This increases the distance between the hinge pins 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 to the stock comb to further strengthen the attachment of the stock.
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 positive on/off operation. The Boehler Antinit 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.
Two versions of the 455 side-by-side Express Rifle are available, differing only in the level of finish.
The field-finished 455 is elegantly presented with a color case-hardened action.
The 455 EELL features highly detailed bulino-made game scene engraving or intricate scrollwork and a select walnut briar stock and fore-end. An elegant leather case, complete with maintenance and cleaning tools, is provided.
