An aesthetic design and precise functioning characterize this model as is a customary from the factory BERIKA®. Designed to use of Magnum 12 ga. 3 in (76 mm) cartridges, but capable of functioning with lighter cartridges, the new BERIKA® gas operated semi automatic is the ideal shotgun for long distance shooting and the most difficult game. Berika® Firearms' technological superiority and craftmanship guarantee the precise concentricity of every barrel and uniform wall thickness, allowing the barrels to be remarkably light and strong. All of the BERIKA® barrels are precisely drilled and reamed from 42CrMo4 (4140) steel bar. The exclusive hard chromed bore ensures truer, more consistent shot patterns and resists pitting and corrosion.
