The ASE/ASEL Model Beretta is the best Boxlock they ever produced. These 20 bore ASE's are a true and accurate frame and barrel size for the ideal game gun. Beretta offered the original AS Model for 17 years but not with this style of engraving or wood this good. They discontinued the original ASE in 1964. Then some 20 years ago they came back out with these, and this piece is clearly marked number 15 of 28.

The Beretta Premium Grade guns that come out of their Custom Shop have barrels that are hand fitted to the action. It is then checked in the white or "bianco" and then hardened. They use select wood, as you can see on this piece, with oil & wax finish, locking screws on key screws and the internal parts are polished. Nearly all are then sold thru the Beretta Gallery stores Worldwide.
