Fancy engraving doesn’t kill birds. Neither does pretty wood. This 20g Beretta Silver Snipe OUT shotgun has neither of those, but it does what it needs to do its job.
Merrill’s Auctioneers & Appraisers in Williston, VT, has it. It’s coming to auction this Friday, January 24, 2020. The sale begins at 9:45 AM EST.
Beretta made these over-unders from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s. They were no-frills shotguns, but they were rugged and reliable. If this one is in good, shootable condition (and you should ask lots of questions to find out — or better yet, go see the gun for yourself), it could be a great deal.
