The Silver Pigeon I offers all of the functional features of our premium over-under competition shotguns at a particularly attractive price. It is built around the best-in-class 686 action, which is compact and low-profile while being extremely strong. The Optima-Bore, Optima-Choke barrels are light-weight and place the shotgun's point of balance right at the hinge-pin, delivering lively feel in the hands and natural pointability. Irrespective of your discipline, whether it is sporting, trap/DTL or field, the Silver Pigeon's select-walnut stock and tasteful scroll engraving will not fail to turn heads.
Natural pointability, swing
The Silver Pigeon I uses two conical locking lugs at mid-action, right between the barrels. This gives the receiver vault-like locking strength while keeping the profile considerably lower. The advantage is that the eye of the shooter is a lot closer to the plane of his or her supporting hand resulting in considerably better swing and hand-eye coordination, and more successful shots.
Conical locking lugs “self-adjust” by setting themselves slightly deeper into the barrel unit so the receiver will still lock up positively, without any compromise on strength and ensuring longevity.
Beretta's cold-hammer forged barrels are designed and painstakingly manufactured to offer pure perfection in the geometry of the tube to ensure the pellets compact nicely.
The oil-finished select walnut stock sports a beautiful and crisp checkering pattern.
The schnabel fore-end adds to the classic flavour of this over-under.
The receiver is embellished with traditional designs reminiscent of the British and European gunmaking schools. The geometry of the scrolls is proportioned to match the elegance of the receiver, as well as to complement the overall lines of this perfectly-balanced shotgun.
