The A304 Lark semi-automatic combines all the traditional strengths and light weight of the renowned Beretta 300 Series shotguns with the contemporary good looks of the AL390. The shape of the A304's receiver is the same as that of the AL390's but it weighs more than a pound less because a special alloy is used that's as strong as steel but 65% lighter.

An operating system as simple as Beretta can make it.Beretta's traditional Gas Operating System The 12 gauge A304 Silver Lark is chambered for 2-3/4 inch shells. It uses Beretta's traditional 300 Series gas system, with a rugged, one piece stainless steel piston. Proven over the years for its superior reliability, the system is self-cleaning. 

There's nothing to break , lubricate or wear out. Because of its exceptional simplicity, the A304 field strips faster than any other shotgun you've ever owned. The trigger group features such semplicity of design and exceptional ruggedness tha it is virtually indestructible. Since it is locked securely in place by a single pin, it can be removed for cleaning and lubrication.
