Natural Pointability, Swing, The Silver Pigeon I Sporting 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., Available in Three Action Sizes, with Scaled-Down 28-ga, .410 Receivers, 686silverpigeon1_interne1The 12- or 20-gauge Silver Pigeon has impressed countless hunters for its efficient dimensions and fast handling. But if you see and bring to your shoulder a Silver Pigeon I in 28 gauge or .410, you will be doubly impressed by the premium feel of the petite actions. These are scaled down to fit the smaller gauges without any extra weight or bulkiness--something that you normally find in shotguns prices several times as much as this., Flawless Fit and Finish, 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 gun’s graceful lines. This is a shotgun that has all the elements of a treasured heirloom, without the price-tag to match.
