When was the tri-centennial Over and Under muzzle loader made?

Beretta offered this muzzle loader in 1980 to commemorate their 300th anniversary (1680 to 1980). Named the Model 1000, it is a replica of Beretta's 1835 / 1865 over and under shotgun. About 1,680 were produced in 1980. In 1985, a similar model was also produced with browned barrels, but the total production on this version is unknown.  More information on this shotgun is in the 1980 Beretta catalog, to download this catalog please visit our web page online at www.berettaservices.com
