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 old Beretta logo, or rather the Beretta escutcheon with the “PB”, dates back to the early 1800’s.
