The Beretta Custom Grade Atelier 490 Serpentina, which itself is based on the company’s more obtainable 486 Parallelo SXS designs, is a one-of-a-kind double shown off by the Beretta Gallery last week.

The painstakingly built art piece is complete with an ebony stock and black anodized edgeless receiver that is guaranteed to turn heads.

The gun comes complete with a matching Churchill-style black leather case.

While no price has been released, the company’s last 490 Serpentina, crafted to commemorate the company’s 490th anniversary, in 2016, was reportedly sold to a California collector. It included a recreation of the bill of sale for an order of arquebus barrels from the Doges of Venice in 1526 on its blue receiver– Beretta’s first documented gun order. More on that gem, below:
