Are veneered wood stocks a good idea or bad idea?
What is X-Tra Wood?
This wood enhancement finish, exclusively Beretta's, affordably reproduces the rich grain pattern of Beretta's highest quality Premium Grade walnut. The wood core maintains the warmth and feel of wood, while the film and sealant waterproof the entire stock, making it impermeable. The film is protected by a tough scratch-resistant semi gloss lacquer, while the straight-grained wood core guarantees years of use in all shooting environments. Available in 2003 on both the Onyx Pro and AL391 Teknys, the new X-Tra Wood, is covered by a special refinishing program.
Should the consumer damage the finish, Beretta USA will refinish the stock and/or fore-end for a nominal charge. Contact Beretta USA Customer Service for more information. (Program excludes all permanent wood damage or cracking caused by abuse). Now, for the first time, the hunter can use their "Premium Grade" walnut stock without fear of damaging it! Every X-Tra Wood stock is clearly but elegantly identified by the distinctive mark on the bottom of the grip cap.
