Our Assessment: From Beretta’s website: “The new Vittoria series is the first Beretta shotgun range specifically designed for women. Developed with input from champion lady pro-shooters, the Vittoria series shotguns feature dedicated ergonomics to ensure a smooth, comfortable and precise handling.
The stocks have been completely re-engineered to fit a woman’s dimensions. Made of beautiful grade 2.5 oiled walnut, the length of pull is reduced and the comb features a semi-Monte Carlo design with a slight drop and additional “toe-out” cast. The checkering on both the stock and the fore end are extra fine for added comfort during a long day of training or competing.
The 691 Sporting Vittoria is built on the same durable, heirloom quality receiver and cold hammer forged Steelium barrels as the standard 691, features a sporting vent side rib and tapered top rib and extended Optima HP chokes. The attractive contemporary scroll engraved receiver is coated in a solid and durable Nistan finish providing excellent resistance to corrosion. The low profile receiver ensures a quick mount and good fit ensuring maximum clay breaking success.
Vittoria shotguns perfectly fit smaller frames while offering full-size performance.”
