Beretta Says:  686 Silver Pigeon I The 686 Silver Pigeon I hunting shotgun has all the functional features of our premium over-unders at a particularly attractive price. At its heart, it has the best-in-class 686 action, which is compact and low-profile while being extremely strong. Besides 12 and gauge, this shotgun is also available with beautifully scaled-down actions for 28 gauge and .410, for a true premium-grade experience. Whether you take it to an upland hunt or to the clay range, the Silver Pigeon I gives you the flawless performance and the classic looks of a Beretta. Featuring classic lines, the most-durable action on the market and the flexibility of the Beretta Mobil-Choke system, the 686 Silver Pigeon I was designed to last through generations of hunters. The Silver Pigeon I 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 actionís 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. While not as elaborately decorated as our premium shotguns, the Silver Pigeon I has all the elegance that you can expect from a Beretta. The oil-finished stock sports a beautiful and crisp checkering pattern, and the schnabel fore-end adds to the classic flavor of this over-under. The scroll-engraved receiver is a functional work of art in itself, with its interesting geometry blending perfectly with the stock and contributing to the gunís graceful lines. This is a shotgun that has all the elements of a treasured heirloom, without the price-tag to match.

Hero's Arms Says:  Built in 2018 this Beretta Silver Pigeon 1 Field has been shot fewer than 500 shots.  It is in excellent condition.  It has a 14 5/8" Length of Pull and weighs only 6 pounds 3.5 ounces.  It comes with 7 choke tubes, 5 Beretta Mobilchokes in Full, Improved Modified,  Modified, Improved Cylinder, and Cylinder, and two additions Briley Skeet chokes.  An excellent hunting gun, it can also be used for occasional skeet or sporting clays to practice for the season.  It is a bit light for regular clay target shooting IMHO.  The Automatic safety has been converted to Non-Automatic, the parts are in the stock should anyone wish to convert it back.
