The best of best – in black, with added features – there is a lot to love about Beretta’s top-of-the-line competition shotgun.
The DT11 Black edition not only looks good, it is a seriously good performer. Features that take the Black Edition up a notch higher from the DT11 include a new carbon fibre top rib for perfect linearity, the most complete B-FAST ever featuring both stock and barrel balancing system, and aesthetically pleasing anti-glare matte barrels.
More than just black
Naturally the Black Edition stars all of the technical features of the DT11 which has made it choice of champions for so many years. This under and over is built around a vault-tough cross-bolt action, a whole 3mm wider than the earlier but ever popular DT10, making it stronger and even more durable. The trigger has a truly custom feel, breaking at a crisp 1.59kg, it minimizes muscular interference with your swing and results in many more broken targets. The centre-mass of the DT11 Black is designed to be low and coaxial with the bottom barrel, giving this shotgun unmatched stability and greatly reducing muzzle rise. With premium-grade Steelium-Pro barrels and high-grade stock that can be tailored to suit, the DT11 Black was born and bred to keep you on target and on the podium.
Treated as a premium grade over and under
Each DT11 Black shotgun is treated as a premium grade shotgun, and is personally tested and perfected by the master gunsmith at the world's oldest firearms manufacturer, Beretta, to ensure you are getting a one-of-a-kind. High-quality walnut is hand-finished according to your preference with oil, True Oil® or wax, plus the fore-end can be custom fitted to you. Its hand-checkered pistol grip and fore-end provide solid handling to compliment the overall design of the shotgun.
The best barrels available
Its barrels are Steelium Pro, and are built with tri-alloy steel that undergoes deep drilling, cold-hammer forging and a special vacuum distension to create the ideal characteristics for ballistic performance. The 480mm forcing cone and improved bore dimensions reduce recoil and muzzle rise so you stay on target.
Anti-glare matte barrels
More than just an aesthetic element, the matte barrels gives absolute anti-glare performance and helps you keep your eyes away from distractions and constantly on your targets.
Set the shotgun up the way you like it
The Beretta Fast Adjustment System Technology (B-FAST) is a family of modular adjusting devices that lets you set your gun up to fit you perfectly. The family includes B-FAST Comb and B-FAST Balance.
B-FAST Stock Balancing system
Allows you to set your own designed balance through steel weight wads inserted into the stock as far away as possible from the hinge pins, allowing maximum balance correction for every unit of weight added. The first wad not only behaves as the first balance correction, but it is also the fixing point for additional wads. The system also allows customisation of the stock length without compromising the system.
B-FAST Barrel Balancing system
The weight of the barrel is now adjustable through a set of weights that can be fixed to the side ribs, under the fore-end. The combined use of these weights with the solid metal stock balancing system allows you to get the balance you desire and compensate for natural variability of the wood density.
B-FAST Comb (optional) to adjust the drop and cast
This is a configuration of the buttstock that allows a complete drop and cast stock adjustment with extreme ease and quickness. The comb, is made of a light alloy and features robust stainless steel supports, in order to deliver the maximum strength and durability. (Optional)
B-Fast carbon-fibre top rib
Extremely lightweight and resistant, the top rib provides perfect linearity even in the toughest shooting conditions, thanks to the new welding-free fixing technology.
Carbon-fibre trigger plate
The DT11 Black is the only Beretta competition shotgun to feature a trigger plate in carbon-fibre for an advanced weight control capability.
Detachable, adjustable trigger
The trigger group is detachable, allowing you to change it in seconds in case of need, from one shooting stand to the next one, without loosing your chances to win. The trigger is also adjustable so it can perfectly fit the ergonomics of the finger to the stock, regardless of a standard or made to measure stock.
Steelium Pro barrels
Steelium is the production technology that transforms Beretta’s own recipe for special tri-alloy steel into an exceptional barrel. The deep drilling, cold hammer forging and the special vacuum distension, causes the steel to acquire the ideal characteristics, offering the best ballistic performance.
Long forcing cone
The long, 480mm forcing cone practically eliminates shot deformation, keeping shot patterns consistently accurate while minimising recoil and muzzle rise. The result is improved pattern performance that allows the DT11 Black to achieve superior target crushing shot-to-shot accuracy.
Wide receiver: durability and stability
Evolved from the best-in-class DT10 action, an 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 you dreamlike stability and balance.
Improved Grip and operation
The top lever has been specifically designed to improve the grip, reduce stress and provide more comfort for both right and left-handed shooters as was the shape of the safety selector was for better grip and smoother operation. The bridges are internally hollowed, while the side ribs are windowed to improve barrel balance and help dissipate the heat generated with constant shooting.
Micro-Core recoil pad
An innovative recoil pad developed by Beretta that expands gradually and instantly, increasing its surface area on the shoulder and giving the shotgun secure and precise support. It is soft, light and able to slide during shouldering.
