But there’s one thing to point out about this listing: It’s an “AS IS – No refund or exchange” sale. So when you buy, it’s yours — regardless of any issues you discover. Even though this guns looks pretty clean and original, here are a few questions I suggest asking the seller before bidding:
Are the barrels tight and on the face?
Are there any dents, dings, or bulges in the barrels? Any pitting?
Does the gun cock, fire, and function as it should?

Beretta BL-3s are the precursor to the company’s 686 line of over unders. Personally, I think they’re nicer shotguns. This one has a bit of decent engraving on it and it looks unused. Best of all, it has 28″ barrels — something that’s hard to find on these.
Beretta BL 3 O/U 20 Gauge Shotgun: Very nice BL 3 with 28″barrel choked modified and full. Appears to have been fired very little, with beautiful wood. Beretta hand engraving throughout. Superior handling and balance. Overall this Italian made Beretta is about 95%. Excellent for smaller framed shooters. Comes with owner’s manual. Price: $895
If I had to name one shotgun a best buy, it would be Beretta’s BL line of OUs. 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.
This first Beretta BL is a BL-3 in 28g. It’s listed on Gunbroker.com at No Reserve, and the auction ends on 10/25/2015 5:58:16 PM ET.
Rare Beretta BL-3 28 ga. O/U: Arguably the finest Box Lock Beretta ever manufactured. This rare 28 gauge is choked S/S. Barrels measure a tad over 26 in. Length of pull is about 14 inches from the pachmyer pad (done right) to the trigger. This beauty is in Excellent condition. I am including a reprint of a Garcia Imports magazine featuring the shotguns from Beretta dated from 1969-1970. A true quail destroyer!
This next one is 20g BL-4. It’s also listed on Gunbroker.com at No Reserve, and the auction ends on 11/1/2015 8:00:00 PM ET.
Beretta BL-4 O/U 20 gauge, 20 ga, 26″ bbls: Really nice Beretta BL-4 over/under 20 gauge. LOP at 14&1/8″. IC & Mod barrels. Takes 3″ shells. $45 shipping via USPS priority to FFL. Sales to California okay with prior permission from your FFL.
This last one is a BL-5 in 20g. This one is on Gunbroker.com, but it’s being offered at a fixed price: $2,475. That’s a lot, but I’ve seen very few BL-5s. If you have to have one, here it is.
BERETTA BL-5 Over Under, 20g, 27″ bbls: This is a rare, and highly sought after Beretta BL-5. Please do not confuse this with the S-57 models. Each is clearly marked on the receiver. Some individuals would have buyers believe they are the same. They are not. The BL series is the finest box lock guns that Beretta ever made. This example has a 27″ barrel, vent rib, single trigger, and gorgeous wood. The chokes are F/M.
The twenty-eight gauge is one shotgun I’ve never talked myself into buying. But after seeing this one, I’ve been having the 28g-talk with myself again. This little Beretta is an awfully nice looking, and the BL-3s are super all around doubles. I doubt I’ll run across another one like it with 28″ barrels. Pistol-grip aren’t usually for me, but on a gun this light, I bet the extra wood gives you a little more control over things going on at the other end of the gun.
From what I’ve heard, the 28g has a lot going for it. Loaded with 3/4-oz shells, they deliver more than enough lead to put down a grouse or woodcock, provided you put the lead in the right place.
McIntosh said the 3/4 oz., 28g is “…one of the most balistically efficient shotshells ever devised” when loaded with hard shot and pushed along by a quality shot cup. He knew a lot more about balistics than I ever will, so I’ll have to agree.
Beretta BL-3 – 28ga, 2-3/4″, 28″: M / F (.020 / .025), Extractors, SST, LOP 14-1/4″, Drop 1-1/2″ to 2-1/2″, Weight 5 lbs. 15 oz. Hard to find gun with 28″ barrels! Great 28ga Dove Gun! Nice Tight Gun – Lever to Right of Center, Tight to Open. Wood shows some handling marks and scratches. Metal 97%. Wood 93%. Price:$1,675
Opportunity knocks, and you say “Hey, wait a minute, let me finish watching this awesome shark video on YouTube.” Then the moment passes. I bet that’s what happened for at least a couple guys on this 28g Beretta BL-3 that I posted last week. They hesitated, and it was gone. I think it sold in less than a day.
I wasn’t surprised. Beretta’s BL3s are great guns. I think they;re built on true 28g frames (rather than 20g frames), so they’re trim and light. They’re also as rugged and reliable as any just about any O/U out there ,and their single trigger is very dependable. If you still want one, here’s your chance. While it costs about a third more than the one I posted last week, it does appear to be in even nicer overall condition — maybe even close to new. And for a gun of this quality, $1999 is still a decent price.
This one will be gone soon. These BL-3s are great guns, and it’s rare to find one set up like this. If you’re looking for a 28g, this one looks like a bargain. Get it now….
