Beretta® 686 Silver Pigeon I Combo 28 Gauge / .410 Over / Under Shotgun
For those who believe their Shotgun should both look AND perform beautifully, look no further! The 686 Silver Pigeon I is a traditionally-styled Shotgun with serious bite -- and a look that would seem right at home on your grandpa's wall.
The oil-finished stock sports a gorgeous, crisp checker pattern, and the schnabel fore-end adds to the classic appeal. The scroll-engraved receiver is a functional work of art unto itself, with its interesting geometry blending perfectly with the stock and contributing to the Shotgun's graceful lines.
But it's not all about looks, is it? At its heart, the Silver Pigeon I has the best-in-class 686 action, which is compact and low-profile while maintaining exceptional strength. A long-standing favorite among hunters and competitive shooters, it features two conical locking lugs at mid-action, giving it great locking strength and durability while keeping a low profile. The advantage is that your eye is a lot closer to the plane of your supporting hand... delivering considerably better swing and hand-eye coordination.
This particular model is scaled-down to fit the smaller gauges without any extra weight or bulk -- something you'd normally find in shotguns costing several times more. The "petite" 28 Gauge / .410 action and light recoil make it perfect for young shooters and those looking for a bigger challenge upland.
