THE CHAMPION’S CHOICE FOR PROFESSIONAL COMPETITION
The DT11 is Beretta’s top-of-the-line competition shotgun, used by the world’s absolute best clay shooters. It is built around a vault-tough cross-bolt action, a whole 3mm wider than its predecessor’s (the DT10) and therefore stronger and even more durable. The trigger has a truly custom feel, breaking at a crisp 3 ½ lbs–which minimizes muscular interference with your swing and results in many more broken targets. The center-mass of the DT11 is designed to be low and coaxial with the bottom barrel, giving this shotgun unmatched stability and greatly reducing muzzle rise. And with its premium-grade Steelium-Pro barrels and high-grade stock that can be tailored to the customer’s specifications, the DT11 was born and bred to keep the serious competitor on target and on the podium.
WIDE-RECEIVERWIDE RECEIVER FOR DURABILITY, STABILITY
Before rolling out the DT11, Beretta has consulted and worked with the world’s top professional clay shooters, to create a shotgun that will stay miles ahead of the second-best. The best-in-class DT10 action has therefore morphed into the even-better DT11 receiver. The overall 3mm increase in the width of the receiver went all to enhance wall thickness, so that the gun will not only be even more durable, but also offer dreamlike stability and balance to the competitive shooter.
IMPROVED GRIP AND OPERATION
Thanks to its unequaled experience, Beretta knows that at the professional level every detail can make the difference between gold and silver. We have accordingly incorporated several tweaks to the design of the DT11 for a no-compromise quest for victory. The redesigned top lever improves the grip, reduces stress and provides more comfort for both right- and left-handed shooters. Also, the shape of the safety selector has been redesigned for a better grip and smoother operation, to keep the mind of the competitor where it matters without any fatigue or distraction.
The DT11’s Steelium Pro barrels are constructed of a proprietary steel engineered to offer extreme durability and superior ballistic performance. The long, 480mm forcing cone keeps shot patterns consistently accurate while minimizing recoil and muzzle rise. Also, the newly designed barrel bridges are internally hollowed, while the side ribs are windowed to improve barrel balance and help dissipate heat. No wonder that Beretta’s DT11 is considered today’s absolute best competition over-under shotgun.
BARREL PROFILE AND FORCING CONESTEELIUM
Beretta has continued to improve the bore and performance of its barrels on competition shotguns like DT-11 and 692. By lengthening the forcing cone on Steelium Plus and Steelium Pro barrels, the transition from chamber to bore diameter (also 18.6 mm) is extended with a gradual taper to increase patterning performance and reduce felt recoil.
DRILLED AND TAPPED RECEIVER
The receiver of the 1301 Comp comes pre-drilled and tapped to receive a variety of sighting accessories. No need for gunsmithing or for any alteration to the shotgun.
FIBER OPTIC SIGHT
The front post of the 1301 Comp is made of a special fiber-optic designed to gather light under most conditions. This makes pointing and shooting quick and intuitive.
The gas-operating system of the 1301 Comp features a specially-designed self-cleaning piston. As a result, this shotgun is extremely clean shooting, and its maintenance is easy and quick.
OVERSIZED BOLT RELEASE
The oversize controls on the 1301 Comp make it easy and intuitive to operate the gun under the stress of competition: the bolt release is designed to be absolutely fumble-free and to afford positive purchase.
AGGRESSIVE GRIP CHECKERING
Thanks to the crisp, aggressive checkering on the pistol grip, the 1301 Comp will handle like an extension of your arms, even on scorching-hot days.
TRIGGER GUARD AND SAFETY
Just like all other controls on the 1301 Comp, the safety is oversized for easy use, and placed at the trigger guard for intuitive on-off.
REMOVABLE CHOKE SYSTEM
Thanks to the interchangeable choke system (Optimabore HP), the user can modify the pattern to best suit the desired use.
