Gardone Val Trompia, Brescia, Italy, 2018/01/26 - Beretta is proud to announce Victrix Armaments’ latest development in long range bolt action rifles: the .50 BMG caliber CORVUS - ShotShow.org / Beretta.com.
The recently acquired Italian brand Victrix expands the already broad range of precision rifles marketed by Beretta with a large caliber / antimateriel rifle for extreme long-range engagements. The large caliber CORVUS rifle is manufactured with the same cutting-edge technology, high end materials and unparalleled precision that defines the Company production but in a highly effective and widely adopted caliber. Despite the technical challenges imposed by the powerful .50 BMG, the CORVUS is one of the most accurate, light and compact rifles in its category.
With a smooth and solid AISI 630 stainless steel action with 3-lug bolt, together with a 27” barrel with a four chamber recoil dampening muzzle brake, the CORVUS provides an astonishing 0.5 MOA accuracy at 1,094 yards in a 33 pound, 45 inch (folded stock) package. Complemented by several ergonomic and new safety features, the CORVUS is ready for any challenging combat environment.
Victrix Armaments is an Italian company based in Cazzano Sant’Andrea (Bergamo) within the Officina Meccanica Rottigni which offers leading edge solutions in the field of precision bolt action rifles and related technologies. With Victrix, Beretta broadens its strong position in the rifle segment and further expands its already wide range of products and customer base. Beretta USA (beretta.com) will market the Victrix product lines in the US, including the extreme long-range rifles in .408/.375 CheyTac and .50 BMG, calibers. These products will complement and expand the fine line of Sako and Tikka rifles already marketed by Beretta USA.
