Beretta Rifle Reviews – Beretta Stampede Buntline

6 Mar

The Beretta Stampede Buntline is a carbine version of the original Stampede revolver, which is in fact a replica of Colt’s famous Single-Action Army revolver, or The Peacemaker. The revolver was famous because it was originally chambered in .44-40 Winchester, so it shared the same ammo as “the rifle that won the west,” a Winchester 1873. However, the Stampede Buntline is only available in .45 Colt.

The Buntline carbine features a 18-inch barrel with fixed sights and a wooden shoulder stock. Otherwise it operates just like the original model.

hunting rifles that was once manufactured by Sako, but is now made by
Beretta. The Hunter is the standard model of the series.Features

Beretta Rifles Reviews

5 Mar

Beretta has been owned by the same family for some five hundred years. The Beretta company was established in 1526,[when gunsmith Maestro Bartolommeo Beretta of Brescia, Lombardy, Italy) was paid 296 ducats for 185 arquebus barrels by the Arsenal of Venice. The bills of sale for the order of those firearms are in the firm’s archives. Their firearms are now used worldwide for a variety of civilian, law enforcement, and military purposes. It is also known for manufacturing shooting clothes and accessories. Beretta is the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world.

Beretta rifles play a huge part during the World War II being the second rifle gun the Italian army fielded. With the Wehrmacht’s control of northern Italy, the Germans seized Beretta and continued producing arms until the 1945 German surrender in Italy. In that time, the exterior finish of the weapons was much inferior to both the pre-war and mid-war weapons, but their operation remained excellent. The last shipment of Type I rifles left Venice for Japan in a U-boat in 1942.

After the war, Beretta continued to develop firearms for Italian army and police and for civilian market. Beretta acquired several domestic competitors such as Benelli and Franchi and some foreign companies in the late eighties. Today, the company is owned and is run by Ugo Gussalli Beretta and his sons, Franco and Pietro. And today, Beretta embarks on the 3rd Millennium with the benefit of centuries of experience. That experience, combined with investments in technology, organization and growing product lines, has prepared Beretta for the demands of the global market of the 21st century.

Beretta has some great rifles which we will tackle later on in our Beretta Rifle Reviews. If you are a fan of great exterior rifles, then Beretta is the way to go. Don’t forget to stick with us.
