Beretta (Stand 06-B22) has announced the acquisition of the Victrix Armaments brand from Italian company Officina Meccanica Rottigni. Victrix Armaments offers leading-edge solutions in the field of precision bolt-action rifles and related technologies.
Beretta will market the Victrix product lines – Victoria (Competition), and Minerva (Defence & Law Enforcement) – and will develop new solutions starting from a line of extreme long-range rifles in .408/.375 CheyTac, as well as .50 BMG calibres. These products will complement and expand the line of Sako and Tikka rifles already marketed by Beretta in the US. Earlier in 2016, Beretta subsidiary GMK announced the acquisition of a 44 per cent stake in Centanex, a manufacturer of pyrotechnics.
