Steelium

Steel technology

Steelium

 is the production technology of the Beretta barrels that transforms the special tri-alloy steel into an exceptional barrel, also due to a manufacturing process that is just as unique.

Thanks to the gundrilling, cold hammer forging and to the special vacuum relieving, the steel acquires the ideal characteristics to offer the best ballistic performance available today.
