The Beretta improved gas system of the Urika 2 makes these semiautomatics some of the softest shooting auto loaders right out of the box, reducing felt recoil and improving second shot recovery. Features semiautomatic gas operation with a self-compensating exhaust valve. 3" chamber. Synthetic stock with rubber inserts. Gel-Tek buttplate. Crossbolt safety reversible for left-handed shooters. Beretta's new Kick-Off hydraulic dampening reduction system reduces recoil an astounding 44% more than its closest rival by using two hydraulic recoil dampers incorporated into the stock "spacer" unit. The recoil energy is gradually dissipated by the hydraulic dampers, resulting in superior comfort for the shooter. Front bead sight. Optima+ bore field chokes. Black synthetic stock.
