Beretta MODEL BL-4 OVER/UNDER 20-GAUGE…26″, IC/MOD, SST, EJECTORS…5-LBS, 13-OZ…IN BOX, MFD 1971…NO RESERVE 20 GA: Slim, lightweight and easy to carry, here’s a nice older Beretta Model BL-4 over/under shotgun. Chambered for 20-gauge shells, it has 26-inch barrels, 3-inch chambers, and is choked Modified over Improved Cylinder. It features a single-selective trigger, auto ejectors, and an automatic safety. The high strength chromium molybdenum steel barrels have a ventilate rib with two beads. The blued receiver is decorated with foliate scroll engraving. One of the nice things about this gun is that the frame is sized for 20-gauge…it’s not just a 12-gauge frame with 20-ga barrels. This makes the gun much slimmer and lighter…and a joy to carry in the field. This gun tips the scales at just under 5-pounds, 13-ounces. Overall condition is very good and it appears to have been fired only very little. The original blue finish is nearly all intact except for a dime-sized area on the left side of the receiver where it was partially stripped. There is no associated rust or pitting in this spot, or anywhere else for that matter. I’d grade the blue finish at about 95%. Nearly all of the gold plate remains on the trigger. The stocks are in very good condition and free of cracks or chips although there are a few small dings and minor scratches. The varnish is all still there and the wood grades about 95% also. Length of pull measures 14″ over the original factory buttplate. The drop @ comb is 1-5/8″ and drop @ heel is 2-1/2″. The mechanics are in good working order and the top lever is still well right of center. The bores are both excellent. The “XX7” Italian date code on the underside of the barrels indicates 1971 production. It comes with the original factory box with intact end label. A very high quality shotgun that will give years and years of service.
