List of products by manufacturer Beretta USA

<p><strong>A Dynasty for Over Four Centuries...</strong></p>
<p>In 1526 Mastro Bartolomeo Beretta (1490 – 1565/68) of Gardone  received 296 ducats as payment for 185 arquebus barrels sold to the  Arsenal of Venice. Already in production in the early 1500s, Beretta  products were chosen by the highly discriminating Republic of Venice  because of their excellence. As the Beretta name became synonymous with  uncompromising quality, design, materials, construction and performance,  word spread beyond the Italian borders, establishing a tradition that  has carried over, uninterrupted, through fifteen generations of  Berettas. The trade secrets and attention to detail Jacopo (1520/25 –  ...) inherited from his father Bartolomeo were passed on to his own son  Giovannino (1550 – post 1577), then to his grandson Giovan Antonio (1577  – post 1649) – on and on from one century to the next.</p>
<p>In the early 1800s Pietro Antonio Beretta (1791 – 1853), in spite of  difficulties arising from constant wars and foreign domination, traveled  throughout Italy to demonstrate the superior quality of his products  and collect orders. Pietro Antonio’s son Giuseppe (1840 – 1903)  continued the arduous effort begun by his father, creating new  opportunities for the company through international distribution.</p>
<p>In the early 1900s Pietro (1870 – 1957) took the Company reins,  introducing modernized manufacturing methods, many patents for  mechanisms and simplified construction, consequently establishing  Beretta, the first Italian firearms maker, as one of the most modern  firearms production facilities in the world. The modernization process  was continued by the sons Giuseppe (1906 – 1993) and Carlo (1908 –  1984), securing the Company’s multinational character with commercial  and production activity in numerous European countries and the United  States. These efforts created successful ventures in the military, law  enforcement and private sectors.</p>
<p><strong>Beretta Today</strong></p>
<p>Today, under the leadership of <strong>Cav. Ugo Gussalli Beretta </strong> and his sons, <strong>Franco</strong><strong> </strong>and <strong>Pietro</strong>,   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.</p>
