Beretta Silver Hawk 409 12 Ga Shotgun 1961 + Chokes

This is one of the highly regarded Beretta model 409 Silver Hawk SXS shotguns which was one of many variants of their excellent double under bite actions with rib extension cross bolt that was the basis for many decades of Beretta side by side production. Made in 1961, it features 28” barrels with 2-3/4” chambers and Colonial Arms screw-in chokes have been installed (it comes with Skeet 1, IC, Mod & Full chokes), coin finished engraved frame, automatic safety, single trigger and double bordered hand checking on the walnut stocks with beavertail forend and butt with grip cap and fluted comb. It retains about 95% blue with some thinning near the muzzles while the frame is perfect as are the bores (which appear to have been professionally back-bored) and the stocks are sound with some thin, short cracks at the end of the upper tang and one tiny one on the bottom tang. It’s 100% on-face and lock-up is tight as a tick (zero movement – tested with the forend removed) while the top lever comes to rest to the right of center. There’s a small chip at the toe and a crack there as well (that can be easily pin reinforced) while the original Beretta checkered butt plate is excellent. A really well designed and made side-by-side in excellent condition.
