The Beretta DT10 is an over and under shotgun. It is manufactured, marketed, and distributed by Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta, in Gardone Val Trompia, Italy. It is one of the few Beretta shotguns that has a trigger unit that is detachable in the field, DT standing for detachable trigger. It is a marriage between the older Beretta ASE and the newer Beretta 682 model and is targeted at their competition market.[1]

Available in Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays variants it has found favour with several top competition shooters in recent years[when?]. It is designed on the Beretta monoblock principle with a distinctive crossbolt that emerges on the left side of the action. This crossbolt engages on either side of the barrel and provides a very strong lock up. The downside being that the action is very broad and this gives it its rather clumsy appearance.[clarification needed]

The DT10 is available in several guises, the base DT10, a DT10L with enhanced engraving and the DT10EELL, a sideplate deluxe version. The mechanicals in each model are identical.

In 2014 the DT10 was replaced by the DT11.
