SILVER PIGEON I
THE EVOLUTION OF AN ICON
The 686 Silver Pigeon I is Beretta's most popular over-and-under shotgun, which is based on the superb 680 platform that hunting and sporting clays enthusiasts have loved all over the world since its launch in the 1950s. With its unmistakable low, slim action and reliable mechanisms, the new version adopts the perfect ballistics of the Steelium Optima HP barrels and features new floral engravings that showcase a beautiful design of leaves and grape bunches as well as the iconic Beretta logo on each side of the action.
The pistol-grip stock and forend of the new 686 Silver Pigeon I are manufactured from selected, oil-finished walnut and are finely chequered for improved grip, even in the rain. The stock is available with a 36.5/57.5 drop in both a right- and left-handed version. Additionally, the forend is available in Schnabel or rounded version.
The Microcore® recoil pad ensures comfortable, accurate shouldering and safe, stable support when shooting.
The new 686 Silver Pigeon I also features Steelium Optima Bore HP barrels in tri-alloy Beretta steel on the 12 and 20 calibre hunting version.
They are available in lengths of 66, 71 and 76cm, featuring deep drilling, cold hammer forging and vacuum relieving. The geometry of the Optima-Bore HP, with its 80-millimetre double forcing cone is designed to offer outstanding performance, even with steel shot.
The pattern remains perfect and uniform irrespective of cartridge type, thanks also to the use of the 70 mm long Optima Choke HP chokes. The 28 and .410 calibres versions are fitted with the traditional Beretta barrels with 50mm Mobil Chokes. The 6x6 vented top rib with precise non-reflective chequering and traditional steel front bead is a clear reference to the most exclusive Beretta over-and-under shotguns. The Sporting version features a 10x8 rib and ventilated side ribs. All models in the Sporting configuration and 12 calibre hunting version can also be fitted with an adjustable B-Fast stock.
The Theme, created by Berettas Master Engravers, takes the form of Elegant floral Motif embelished with images reflective of the region, such as leaves and grapes on the vine: and it extends to the action release, making it more visually appealing as well as providing perfect grip during use.
