Excellent Condition and Iconic 12g Over and Under S686 Special GAME format Shotgun from Beretta in Italy. I used to have one myself many years ago before deciding to stay ‘old school’ with side by side.

NO NOT steel SH-T proof but DO READ ON / check out the link:
THERE ARE more and more None Toxic Shot alternatives being produced. WITH near matching performances to traditional lead and close to, if not matching pressures. Take a look at Horton Gunmakers for their own entry into this debacle of modern day shooting. IF its so lethally deadly to shooters and game eaters how is it every old lead water main supply pipe is not getting ripped out and replaced? To my mind it’s a DISGRACE that the shooting industry did not simply ask that one simple question. NO, they saw an excuse to charge a fortune and that mainly to the detriment of the quarry. Just my opinion …..for what its worth?

Anyway, take a look for yourself:

NOW, to TRY and help speed up availability I WILL also suggest that YOU pass on details to everyone you know who shoots. Then ALL of us start to ask whoever we buy from why they are not DEMANDING cartridges made in this material? Basically VOTE with your WALLET.
YES, it will take a little time for everything to filter through but patience IS a virtue. It also allows everyone who wants to keep hold of their ‘old favourite’ for the rest of their lives. Even pass it on to the next generation and hopefully beyond!
On that note I AM looking into the possibility of stocking some direct from Steve at Hortons. RING for an update and keep checking the web site.


28” (710mm) FIXED Choke (GAME) Barrels with 2 ¾” (70mm) Chambers and ½ restriction to the Bottom and ¾ Top. The Single Selective Trigger allowing quick barrel selection if you consider it needed. All topped off with a ¼” (6mm) Ventilated Sight Rib and Single Silver Front Bead. Stock offers a Current Pull length of a LONG 15 1/8” (383 mm) with the existing 1 1/8” (27mm) Solid Black Extension Piece. Finishing the overall length to 46” (1170 mm).

Tips the scales at 7 Lbs 3 ½ oz (3.27 Kg).

Just LOOK at the gun and its EASY to see this has spent most of its existence tucked away in a cabinet. The Engine Turning Pattern to each side of the Mono Block (Chamber area) is hardly marked at all. This ALWAYS shows wear as soon as the gun gets opened and closed. Chequering is like new too, still Crisp and Sharp in hand. Other than a few extremely light ‘fine line scratches’ to the left hand side of the top chamber there are zero blemishes realistically worth detailing. The usual Semi-Bright Finished Action with Full Engraving. Single Selective Gold Washed Trigger to swap first barrel choice. Still over 50% plus of the finish left here too. Again an EASY ‘tell’ for work done so far as this too quickly wears away in use.

Generally just Great Guns. Especially (to my mind) these older examples. From a time when finding THE CHEAPEST manufacturing methods were certainly in place but other factors ran parallel.

You may find the same model gun for less money than this but I doubt its condition. If its even close then by all means buy the other.
