B-LINK: Beretta Gas Operating System, the Most Powerful and Cleanest Ever

B-Link gas operating system is available on Beretta A400 and 1301 semiauto shotguns ranges for hunting, competition and tactical

Fast, sturdy, reliable e clean: B-Link is the gas operating system of Beretta semiautomatic shotguns. Equipped with an elastic piston seal and a rotating bolt head, it is perfect for any type of ammunition, from 24 to 64 grams. Functionality and durability with minimal maintenance and cleaning requirements, with B-Link your passion cannot stop even in the most extreme conditions.

Unbelievable Reloading Speed (+ 36%)

The power of the gas-system combined with the precision of the rotating bolt ensure you a fast, reliable and smart cycling. You can spend all your magazine’s cartridges before the 1st round touches the ground. The Beretta gas-operated system is fast like an eye’s blink.

All-Load Proven Reliability, from 24 G. to 64G.

Beretta gas-operating system B-Link is the world’s most reliable system. The closing force is stronger because, when the reloading cycle begins, the energy available to unlock the bolt is significantly higher. The rotating bolt head is extremely precise when it moves back to its closing position.

Lowest Maintenance Need

With B-Link, the only weak point of the gas-operating system has been practically reduced to zero. The re-engineering of gas ports and the systematic reduction of all the mechanical frictions reduce dirt to the minimum terms. You will experience the lowest maintenance need ever, and smart, easy, fast and secure cleaning. There is no risk of losing even the smallest components because the main elements can remain mounted even during disassembly and cleaning.

Each shotgun with B-Link gas operating system comes with the B-Lok cap that ensures a perfect and secure closing


B-Lok magazine cap allows for an improved safety control. The exclusive Beretta magazine cap ensures a perfect and safe closing with just 60 degrees of rotation instead of multiple turns. With B-Lok cap, it is easier to open and close the gun even in the most extreme conditions or while wearing gloves.

AQUA TECH SHIELD: Superior Resistance to Corrosion and Wear

The innovative and environmentally friendly Aqua Tech Shield surface treatment is designed to provide maximum protection from external agents’ attacks. Combining the best selection of materials with the most powerful protective treatments, Aqua Tech Shield technology provides internal and external protection from corrosion and wear every day.

Maximum Resistance Verified

A hybrid organic-inorganic coating, with a high content of Nano Ceramics, high density and high level of reticulation. After thorough laboratory and usage tests, compared with treatments such as Bruniton and Cerakote, Aqua Tech Shield has demonstrated superior technical resistance to corrosion, chemical and weathering agents, ageing, abrasion, scratches, and the most extreme temperatures, while maintaining uniformity, adhesion, hardness, aesthetics, and gloss even after the most extreme uses.

More Color

Aqua Tech Shield enables the application of a wide rage of new colors and textures, compared to other finishes that have limitations in production instead. That’s why Aqua Tech Shield is the ideal coating for those who want to add some color to rifles, pistols and semiautomatic shotguns, especially thanks to all the camo options available. And because of its exceptional adhesion and durability characteristics, colors always remain uniform and maintain their perfect aesthetics, even after long periods of use in harsh conditions.


Compared to other surface treatments, Aqua Tech Shield is a catalyzed water-based product that does not involve the use of solvents or dangerous substances: this makes it totally non-toxic and with zero environmental impact. The gradual application of Aqua Tech Shield treatment on an increasing number of Beretta products is just one of the many initiatives that are part of the Beretta BEPlanet project: a commitment to make our future more sustainable through concrete and responsible actions.

STEELIUM: The Best Ballistic Performance on the Market

Steelium is the hallmark of all barrels produced at Fabbrica d’Armi Pietro Beretta, which was founded in 1526 as a barrel manufacturer, even before becoming a manufacturer of complete firearms. 500 years of experience that is still relevant today, despite the use of the most advanced production technologies.

Every single Beretta Steelium barrel is made from Beretta’s exclusive tri-alloy steel (Ni, Cr, Mo) and goes through deep drilling, cold hammer forging and vacuum distension. This entire process guarantees smoother ballistics that help reduce recoil and muzzle rise effect, ensuring perfect, dense and uniform patterns with any type of ammunition: lead, steel and High-Performance steel.

The Steelium barrels and their 80 mm double forging ensure great reliability and excellent performances with every type of shells, especially during hunting sessions.

MICROCORE®: Light and Soft Recoil Pad for Every Need

Microcore® is the innovative recoil pad developed by Beretta thanks to decades of experience gained on hunting and shooting ranges around the world. Soft, light and adaptable, the Microcore recoil pad is made of open cell polyurethane and combines lightness and performance like no other.

Great Performance

The Microcore® recoil pad is soft, light, and can slide during shouldering with excellent recoil absorption. After firing, it expands gradually and instantly, increasing its surface area on the shoulder and giving the shotgun secure and precise support.

Perfect for Every Need

Microcore® is available in 10, 15 and 20 mm lengths, allowing you to customize the length of the shot in the various hunting and competition versions. In addition, it can be cut and trimmed to fit your customized stock.

Softness and Aesthetics

The soft and very smooth Microcore® rubber has specially designed checkering on the surface for greater control and stability on the gun. Aesthetics have not been neglected: the Microcore® recoil pad perfectly matches the elegance that distinguishes the lines of Beretta shotguns, but with much greater stability and comfort than a rubber or wooden recoil pad.
