Another 20g Beretta Onyx, but with something different….

BERETTA 686 Onyx - 20 Gauge , Color-Case Hardened Action
BERETTA 686 Onyx – 20 Gauge , Color-Case Hardened Action

I know, another 686. Blah, blah, blah. But this one is different, I swear. How? It has a color-case hardened action, something I’ve never seen on a 686 from Beretta. I really like the looks of it  – even though the wood stinks. If it were mine, I would class it up a bit with a new custom wood set from Cole Gunsmithing.

A nice Beretta 686 Over & Under 20g & 28g set…

Two-gauge shotgun sets appeal to my inner Boy Scout. No matter what life throws my way, I would be prepared if I had one shotgun with sets of barrels in two different gauges.

At least that’s how I would rationalize something like this nice Beretta 686 Onyx Pointer-grade 20 & 28 gauge set. Beretta’s 686 line of shotguns are great guns, and this is a great looking set. With 20 & 28 gauge barrels, it can handle everything from pheasants and ducks to quail and snipe. And because it has just one action/buttstock, I wouldn’t have to worry about having building up two different guns that fit me just right. But if I owned it, there would be one tweak I would make: I would add a straight-grip stock like this from Cole Guns. Then this shotgun would be perfect.
