Was BERBEN a Beretta distributer if so when?

I purchased a Beretta 687EELL trap unsingle combo in June of 1986 and the importer was the Berben Corp. I no longer have the gun but I THINK the build date was 1984. I believe the Berben Corp was the importer until Beretta USA was created sometime around 1986ish. I once spoke with Karl Lippard about that gun and he said he thought Berben was created to move guns in and out of the USA for some quasi government organisation with a 3 letter name. That's all I know. If you can locate Karl Lippard he will probably know more.
