Beretta’s BL over unders are great all around shotguns — especially the ones in 20 gauge.These guns were imported into the US in the ’60s & ’70s by the Garcia Corporation. With various degrees of engraving and a touch better finishing, I think they’re a bit more refined the 686s Beretta offered in years later.
If you’re looking for one, you’re in luck. This one is coming up on Sunday, December 6, 2015, @ 10:00 AM EST in Cordier Auction’s December Firearm & Militaria Auction.
