William Evans’ shop at Bisley Camp in Surrey is now offering customers the opportunity to try the medal-winning Beretta DT11 over-and-under and Beretta 486 Parallelo side-by-side shotguns for themselves on the world famous Bisley clay target ranges, which are situated just a few metres from the shop.
Richard Warwick, manager of William Evans at Bisley, said: “As one of the largest stockists of Beretta products in the south and south-east of England, we are delighted to be able to offer customers a try-before-you-buy facility on these popular models. We work closely with Beretta UK, who has supplied two DT11 Trap and two DT11 Sporting demonstration models for our customers to shoot, providing an excellent opportunity for them to see which configuration best suits their requirements. We also stock the full Beretta range, from the entry level Silver Pigeon 1 to the legendary 692 and 687 EELL models, providing a wide choice.
Beretta products have been proven at the highest level in competition shooting since the 1950s, when the company won its first Olympic shooting medal. Today’s range is very much designed with the needs of competition shooters and their particular discipline in mind.
The best-performing competition shotgun of 2013, the Beretta DT11 has been used to win gold medals in all the Olympic shotgun disciplines, namely trap, double trap and skeet, as well as numerous international and national titles across all other disciplines within the sport. Priced from £6550, the DT11 is available in sporting, trap or skeet versions, with a choice of barrel lengths from 28” to 32”. The special DT11 X Trap version, which is designed for competitors who prefer the increasingly popular head-up style of shooting, features 30” to 32” barrels and is priced from £7275.
The Beretta 486 Parallelo side-by-side shotguns, which are available in 12-bore and 20-bore form and a choice of 28” or 30” barrels, feature a beautifully proportioned round body receiver, single trigger and either a pistol grip or straight hand stock. Built to Beretta’s exacting quality standards, they cost £3875, providing game shooters with real value for money.
