Those Italian shotgun experts in Gardone have flexed their way to another interesting modern design with classic styling: the Ultraleggero. A 12 gauge double-barreled over-and-under design whose selling point is that it uses a steel receiver and barrels but still hits the scales with a fighting weight in the 6-pound range, as you may have guessed, “Ultraleggero” means “Ultralight” in Italian.

Beretta says the weight savings comes due to a mixture of Italian shotgun magic including relief cuts in the receiver, an aluminum trigger guard, and voids in the furniture. Offered in either a 26- or 28-inch format, with both variants remaining well under the 7-pound threshold, the Ultraleggero also brings with it the possibility of 3-D printed personalized motifs on polymer inserts on the receiver.

The price is $3K.
