Check Out This Mesmerizing Video of a Beretta Shotgun Being Made

Regardless of your own personal opinions on gun control, you can’t deny that modern firearms are amazing machines. With designs that have evolved and progressed over centuries of fine-tuning, today’s guns are a beautiful synthesis of craftsmanship and technology.

Nothing illustrates this better than Beretta’s latest video, Human Technology — a short film from Ancarani Studio that follows the production of the one of Beretta’s luxury firearms from start to finish. Through focusing on the minutia of the company’s manufacturing process –a mixture of high-tech CNC machining and oldschool human adjustment– the film poetically captures the duality of the modern-day shotgun.

And it’s absolutely mesmerizing to watch.
