We liked the Silver Mallard better than the X2 3-inch gun: it kicked less and handled better, in our view.

The 3-inch, Italian-made Beretta looked great and felt great, due in large part to a slight bit of cast-off in the stock, which, like the drop, can be altered. The Beretta's walnut stock had cut checkering, a glossy finish and a thin but effective rubber buttpad. Some hunters won't like the finish because it can alert gamebirds.
