ACCURACY OF FIRE - The barrel guide, fitting the barrel into
the receiver, has been lengthened almost equalling that of the
Beretta 01ympic target pistol. This definitely increases the
accuracy of fire at both short and long ranges.
THUMB SAFETY - At last it has been possible to design a completely
satisfactory safety lever, blocking both hammer and sear when
the pistol is at full cock.
The safety may be applied (UP) or released (DOWN) with lightening
speed pushing the lever up or down with the side of the thumb.
PULL - An improved sear release mechanism, utilizing new steel
alloys, ensures a crisper and smoother trigger pull for more
RELEASE - New Beretta push button magazine release facilitates
high speed insertion and extraction of the magazine.
POINTABILITY - The slanted pistol grip provides easier aiming.
Newly designed stocks are both easier and faster to grip. Cartridges
now enter the chamber with reduced loading angi e.
