Item Description

FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:

The Beretta Silver Pigeon is a double-barreled, over-and-under shotgun, manufactured, marketed, and distributed by Fabbrica d’Armi Pietro Beretta, in Italy since 1950.
It is most often used for hunting birds and for clay target games such as trap and skeet.
There are several models in field and sporting with different features and finishes, and in various gauges.

The 686 Silver Pigeon I shotgun has all the functional features of premium Beretta over-and-unders at a particularly attractive price.
It is built on the legendary 686 action, a long-standing favorite among hunters and competitive shooters.
It features two conical locking lugs at mid-action, right between the barrels, giving it great locking strength and durability while keeping the action’s profile considerably lower.
The advantage is that the eye of the shooter is a lot closer to the plane of his supporting hand: considerably better swing and hand-eye coordination.

N.B. NOTE: This particular shotgun is virtually new with only very few shots having been fired through it.
Its barrels have been slightly modified however and the removable chokes and thread for the chokes have been removed.

The barrels have been shortened from 26″ in length to 25″.

In this modified configuration it is recommend that this shotgun is only suitable for skeet shooting or open veld hunting.
