Introducing the Beretta SO Sparviere ‘Rocky’ Shotgun

Introducing the Beretta SO Sparviere ‘Rocky’ shotgun: a one-off creation by the craftsmen of the Pietro Beretta Custom Atelier for movie icon Sylvester Stallone. A unique tribute to his acting career and to the legendary role of the Italian American boxer he’s been playing since 1976. The shotgun engraving required between 800 and 900 hours of work. Our engravers, carrying a centuries-old tradition, employed a number of different of techniques to bring to life this masterpiece. These include deep hammer and chisel, to reproduce two of the most memorable scenes from the Rocky movie saga; gold-inlays are also there, to recreate Sylvester Stallone’s signature on the stock; colored enamels were employed to recreate the USA flag and add other details, such as Rocky signature boxing gloves. The total absence of visible screws gives the engraving an uninterrupted blank canvas to express its full beauty. Even the visible internal parts are superbly finished and engraved by hand: for this unique piece, the sideplates features on the inside an enamelled turtle, the pet Sylvester Stallone had in the Rocky movies and that he still keeps at home today.
