The 690 Field III is the latest in a new generation of Beretta boxlock over and unders. Launched in July 2014, The 690 Field III has been extremely well received by the shooting media. The unveiling of this new line of shotguns commenced 2013 with the launch of the 692. However, this latest gun follows on from the 687, the Silver Pigeon III and the Silver Pigeon Deluxe; continuing Beretta’s line of superior field guns. The traditional Beretta, over and under has been combined with the highest technology to create this beautiful, accurate and elegant shotgun. Steelium barrels guarantee absolute precision while minimising weight, creating a jewel of a gun. The new action is a modernised development of the tried and tested 680 series giving you a really reliable gun that requires minimal maintenance. As you would expect of Beretta, the gun is simply beautiful to look at. The stock is manufactured from specially selected high grade walnut and is oil finished. The receiver is Nistan finished with exquisite, roll marked game scene engraving. The 690 Field III weighs slightly less than previous 687 shotguns, thanks to the reengineered barrels and fore-end design. But it isn’t just the lightness that surprises, the gun is perfectly balanced and really delivers everything you want from a field gun.
