Beretta BL-4 20ga OU Shotgun

Beretta BL-4 20ga OU Shotgun

Found –  a great upland shotgun at an even better price!

Introduced in the ’60s, Beretta’s BL-grade over-under shotguns were imported into the US by the Garcia Corp through the ’70s. These guns were basically stripped-downed versions of the company’s ASE line of OUs.

The BLs feature a shallow, low profile boxlock action scaled to match the gauge. They were priced to be values – not cheap, but well made guns at fair prices. They came in a number of grades, with the BL-6s being the highest. All of them were rugged, reliable doubles, built to deliver a lot of quality for fair money.

Today, the Beretta BLs are pretty much steals, especially when they’re in this kind of condition. I know some guys are going to say the chokes on this one are too tight for an upland gun. To those guys I say “Just open them up to right where you want them!”

    I think you are wrong on the BL-5 being the highest grade of the BL series. I had A BL-6 in 20ga. It had false side plates and nice wood but not anything like the current 680 series guns have. I bought this gun from my father un-fired in the early 90s. He purchased it “for my mother” and she wasn’t interested in shooting. He bought it in the mid 70s if memory serves me.

    Hey – you’re right. I just found this online:

    I have a couple Garcia catalogs from the ’70s and the BL-5 is the highest grade they show.

    Thanks for the clarification.
