The BERETTA 686 Silver Pigeon I Shotgun is Beretta's most popular over-and-under shotgun, which is based on the superb 680 platform that hunting and sporting clays enthusiasts have loved all over the world since its launch in the 1950s. With its unmistakable low, slim action and reliable mechanisms, the new version adopts the perfect ballistics of the Steelium Optima HP barrels and features new floral engravings that showcase a beautiful design of leaves and grape bunches as well as the iconic Beretta logo on each side of the action.
The pistol-grip stock and forend of the new 686 Silver Pigeon I are manufactured from selected, oil-finished walnut and are finely chequered for improved grip, even in the rain. The Microcore recoil pad ensures comfortable, accurate shouldering and safe, stable support when shooting.
The 686 Silver Pigeon I's receiver, which is derived from the legendary 680 series, features a slim, elegant shape, characterised by the tried-and-tested locking system with iconic trapezoid shoulders and dual conical locking lugs. The engravings are created using modern Beretta technology, namely a 5-axis laser, capable of engraving rounded surfaces while maintaining perfect continuity in the design.
The theme, created by Beretta's Master Engravers, takes the form of an elegant floral motif, embellished with images reflective of the region, such as leaves and grapes on the vine; and extends to the action release, making it more visually appealing as well as providing perfect grip during use.
The gun features a gold-coloured single selective trigger. The selector is located on top of the safety tang, allowing the user to select the barrel for the first shot with a simple, rapid sideways movement. The ultra-reliable and sturdy ejection system is the tried-and-tested version used on the 680 platform. This boast more than a million guns in use over the course of more than 30 years.
