Presented as a World Premiere at the Game Fair Italia held in Grosseto just this past weekend, shooters and hunters have seen the launch of the brand new over and under shotgun Beretta 690 Field I
In July 2014, the Beretta company first introduced the 690 Field III over-and-under hunting shotgun – an appealing, classic design, yet packed with highly technologic features for maximum durability and performance on all hunting situations.
Now, at the 2016 edition of the Game Fair Italia – a dedicated yearly trade show that takes place in the Italian town of Grosseto – Beretta boosts its over-and-under hunting shotguns line with the new 690 Field I model.
Dedicated to the most demanding hunters, the Beretta 690 Field I over-and-under shotgun reprises most of the aesthetic features of the previous model, The Field III.
Special attention has been given to the wooden components, coupled with sober elegance of the engravings. All this matching with some very interesting features, starting from the quality of the Beretta Steelium barrels.
The Beretta 690 Field I over-and-under shotgun comes with 26”, 28” or 30” Steelium OptimaBore HP barrels – deep-drilled, vacuum-distended out of a special new-generation alloy steel to provide high accuracy and an extended service life.
The 12-gauge Beretta 690 Field I over-and-under shotgun sports 76mm/3” Magnum chambers, Beretta's proprietary Optima HP (OCHP) choke, and is proofed to safely, extensively and profitably employ steel shots.
Barely 7.38 pounds heavy, the Beretta 690 Field I over-and-under shotgun also features a peculiarly designed sliding safety lever located on the top tang, a single selective trigger, and a low-profile aiming rib.
The stylish rounded breech is engraved in a Renaissance-style floral theme.
The Beretta 690 Field I hunting shotgun is equipped with the best available wood quality in its category, what gives to the gun an extraordinaly look.
Both the rounded handguard and the stock are manufactured out of oil-finished selected wood, and the stock sports a 20mm Microcore recoil-reducing synthetic buttpad.
