    Not a Rifle, but Berreta's new Side by Side shotgun - what do you think

    Dont think this is every bodies cup of tea. Probably suits the leopard skin, white range rover sport brigade, by PKL will have a seizure when he sees it.

    I have a slight reservation on the opening lever but that aside I think it looks quite smart. Not that I'll be able to afford one anyway

    At least they're making shotguns with the barrels orientated the right way

    Well it's certainly different, definitely one for the Jordon brigade. It's neither a boxlock or a side plate, that'll suit them nicely.

    Might get a pair of those for Christmas. How much are they?

    Aye, wonder how long it would take the finish to be spoiled by your thumb wiping it?

    The overall looks would take a bit of getting used to, I reckon. Not sure I like it, personally

    I love the not-so-older 470 and 471. What the heck did they change that for?

    I rather like that, but as I cannot hit a barn door with a side by side, liking it is as far as it will go.

    May have missed it but can't see the safety catch and barrel selector. Not sure I like it I'm a traditionalist and this is a bit land rover evoc to me

    why bother with mechanical engraving? If it handles well then I'm for the design but hat engraving is like snake skin shoes!

    I rather like that too but they've missed out a trigger & have forgotten to engrave the side lever!
