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. […]
Here’s a nice little bird gun that’s all you need in the uplands. These Beretta SxSs are tough to find — especially with double triggers. With a little tweaking and a few modification (lengthen the stock, open one of the chokes), it will be a great grouse & woodcock gun. Beretta Side by Side Shotgun 626E: Price: $1699.99 […]

A great gun — at a great price! This 20 gauge OU has it all – 28″ barrels, a straight “English” grip, and a nice long LOP. It’s pretty light, too, at just 6lbs, 4ozs. These over unders were built for Sig Arms by B. Rizzini, and they’re very reliable and trouble free. You could […]
