Beretta V.I.P Experience

Beretta V.I.P Experience

As a David Beardsmore Shooting VIP you will spend two days in the stunning Gardone Valley, Italy's gun making capital. This is where your journey for a custom built Beretta shotgun and gun fit perfection begins. You will have the opportunity to visit the Beretta Factory as well as experience the superb engraving studios and the private collection of the Beretta family. 

Mass produced shotguns are exactly that. Manufacturers produce ‘standard’ dimensions for a worldwide market. This means that many people that purchase an ‘off the shelf’ gun will either need to have the stock altered or compensate for ill fitting. The only way to ensure absolute precision when it comes to gun fit is to start from scratch with a solid ‘blank’ of wood.

As a VIP customer you will be able to choose from dozens of blanks of the finest walnut for your custom stock. This blank canvas enables the shooter to achieve all the crucially important variables. As a VIP Experience customer your gun fit will be carried out by David ensuring perfection in the following areas:

  • Length of pull
  • Drop at comb
  • Drop at heel
  • Cast
  • Pitch
  • Shape of grip
  • Radius of grip
  • Size of grip
