Cole Gunsmithing in Harpswell, ME, is one of the nation’s leading Beretta gunsmith. For over a 20 years now, this company has been the go-to source for top-quality work on the Italian gunmaker’s full range of shotguns – over-unders, side-by-sides and autoloaders.
Along with repair services, Coles also offers customized shotguns. The Beretta 686 Onyx you see here is one of those doubles. With upgraded wood and a straight-gripped stock, it’s a great looking O/U. Add in the double triggers and the choke tubes and you a very unique, and versatile, shotgun Even though it’s a 12 gauge, it weighs less than a lot of American-made 16 gauges. It also has high, shootable dimensions and a decent length of pull.
If you’re looking for a solid, proven double at a great price, a Beretta 686 O/U is a tough gun to beat. My favorites in this line are the matte-black Onyx ones. I have straight-gripped 20 gauge that I used for grouse and woodcock. If I was in the market for something heavier, I would pick up this 12 gauge. It’s at auction now, so check it out right away.
With steel-shot approved 28″ bbls, 3.5″ chambers, and choke tubes, it’s all you need for everything from turkey to pheasants and ducks. It looks like it’s doing to be a great deal, too.
