Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon lI Sporting 20 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

While we had a lot of fun with this gun, we believe that for sporting sub-gauge purposes, women and teen shooters will like it better than tall adult males. The gun did excel on the skeet field, and thanks to its 3-inch chambers, this gun will hunt, too.

The Beretta is a symmetrically shrunken version of the 12-gauge silver pigeon ii. The buttstock had a well-grained piece of wood with a dull oiled finish--a light lacquer finish would have brought out the wood figure better we think.
The Schnabel fore-end's belly swell could have been longer, but none of our testers complained about it. The fore-end latch was easy to engage/disengage--a pleasure.
Inletting on both sides of the gun was completely finished, and the receiver's metalwork was well done, too. The gun sported two different bas-relief gamebird portraits that were machine-engraved. Metal elsewhere was covered in well-done rose scroll- type engraving.
