Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon I Over/Under Shotgun
The low profile receiver on the Beretta® 686 Silver Pigeon I Over/Under Shotgun gives you the fast swing and enhanced point-ability you need for upland bird hunting, dove hunting, sporting clays, or any shotgun sports that involves speed. At the heart of the 686's quick and instinctive shooting are opposing trunnions (projections) mounted on the receiver walls where the barrels pivot, thus eliminating the need for bulky underhooks to form a hinge. As a result of this more compact arrangement is a instinctive pointing, low-profile line of sight; the recoil is directed rearward to the shooter's shoulder where it is less disruptive to firing a second shot, instead of snapping the stock up at the shooter's cheek. The safety/barrel selector switch of this over and under shotgun is positioned for the thumb of the shooting hand to operate quickly, enabling you to choose which barrel to fire first, depending on either the load or the choke tube. An oil finished, select walnut stock and fore-end, with finely cut checkering, and the scroll-work that embellishes the receiver, make the Silver Pigeon I a highly functional masterpiece. Hard chromed bores and Beretta's Mobilchoke® interchangeable choke tube system minimize pellet deformation and deliver tight, consistently uniform patterns. The Beretta 686 Silver Pigeon I Over/Under Shotgun balances perfectly, shoulders effortlessly, and swings smoothly, making it a serious hunting shotgun to consistently hit fast moving targets.
