Years ago, I bought and sold some Beretta SXS shotguns. I always thought of them as Mod.470's, but just noticed mine is simply stamped "Silverhawk" with no additional markings. Found an original catalog listing the 1966 Silverhawk available in 12 and 16ga., IC/IM or M/F, retailing @$222.95. Bottom receiver bears a very simple engraved flying bird. Any info. appreciated, Beretta product/model identification was often a bit of a mystery to me (buying used).

Check the manfg. date. The mdl. 409 was around into the 1960's. It became the Silver Hawk. The 470 was introduced to celebrate the 470 th year Beretta had been making weapons. It has a gold etching of a hawk / eagle head. Some times the older Silver Hawk will have a 409 impressed in the forhand wood. I have always liked the older 409's.
