P. Beretta is the world’s oldest continually operating firearms company. They trace their history back to 1526 making arquebus barrels. Their products range from the ultra-utilitarian Beretta 92 series of handguns to exquisitely beautiful double shotguns.
A few years ago they produced a short film illustrating the interface between high technology and hand craftmanship in their high end shotguns. It was exceedingly well done and perfect to watch on a Monday morning.

Very nice video, and doing things by hand DO allow a more precise fit than just CNC…
A beautiful combination of meticulous hand work, modern manufacturing with five axis CNC, and gorgeous natural wood. Truly a work of art.
