Beretta’s S-series O/U shotguns are some of the greatest doubles ever made – and some of them can be the great buys. Just look at the S2 pictured here to see what I mean. It’s a true sidelock with 28 1/2″ bbls, a high-straight-gripped stock with a 14 3/8″ LOP, double triggers and a weight of just over 6 3/4 pounds. Price? Under $4000. Pound-for-pound, it has to be one of the best deals out there today on a true high-quality shotgun.
