692: Competition Over-Under with Custom-Grade Balance and Features
The futuristic Beretta 692 competition over-under shotgun falls right in between our vault-like DT10 and the trimmer 680 series.
At its core is a 1.6”-wide receiver designed to give superior balance and stability as well as intuitive shouldering and fast target acquisition by placing more weight between the hands. Also, the action is engineered to withstand the rigors of tens of thousands of rounds of serious training and competition, with its two huge locking lugs and replaceable barrel shoulders. And giving you adjustable trigger, adjustable ejection-extraction, adjustable balance and (optional) adjustable comb, the 692 can truly become an extension of your body.
Designed for Breaking Clays
The action of the Beretta 692 was envisioned specifically to meet the needs of competitive shooters. From the side, it looks somewhat like that of our 680-series shotguns with their legendary low profile that greatly aids in aligning the dominant eye with the supporting hand. The main difference is that the 692 receiver sports a wider and heavier construction to offer more stability and ease of handling and to combat the natural fatigue that sets in on long matches. Also, the OptimaBore Steelium barrels have a super-long (360 mm) forcing cone--meaning more durability, increased shot consistency and accuracy, and lower felt recoil and muzzle rise.
A Champion of Adjustability
Out of the box, the 692 offers you an adjustable single-selective trigger, so that you can customize the length to fit your preferences and shooting style, as well as adjustable ejection or extraction. Also standard on all models is adjustable balance, which is achieved by means of weighted wads that you can insert in the buttstock--thereby letting you tweak the point of balance to your ideal without any perceptible alteration to the overall weight. Also available as an option is Beretta’s exclusive B-Fast comb system, which lets you adapt the stock’s drop and cast to your exact specifications.
A Head-Turner at the Range or in the Field
The 692’s look combines the traditional design of the Beretta over-unders with cutting-edge technological solutions. The receiver design is elegant and technical, with a shiny-polished profile on side panels and bottom. Black-gold details finely enrich the overall look of the shotgun, giving to the 692 an unmistakable look. With its cutting edge technological features and great design, the 692 is a shotgun that lives to break clays, but that would not be out of place for the occasional bird-hunt.
The Beretta B-FAST System is a family of technologies that let shooters get their gun set up to fit them perfectly. Thanks to the optional Beretta B-Fast comb, the stock is easily adjustable with 4-way drop and cast regulation. This is done quickly and efficiently with the provided hex wrench. All the shooter needs to do is loosen the screws to lift off the comb. Underneath, the system of polymer shims can be added or removed to get the height adjusted perfectly. Additionally the posts can be moved back in forth in their tracks to adjust the cast in four directions.
1. Fast Balance Adjustability
This shotgun comes with a system enabling you to easily tweak the point of balance to suit your shooting style. This is achieved by means of weighted wads that you can insert in the buttstock. The result is a shotgun that will truly feel like an extension of the body--your body.
2. Fast Comb
This shotgun is available with the optional B-Fast comb system. This is a configuration of the buttstock that enables you to easily modify the drop and cast of the comb to suit your exact preferences.
3. Wide Receiver
Compared to the Beretta 680-series shotguns, the 692 features a wider receiver--measuring at 41.6mm or 1.6." The advantage of this on a sporting gun is that it adds more weight to the gun, placing this extra weight between your hands. In turn, this means less felt recoil, more stability and enhanced pointability.
4. Adjustable Ejection Extraction
The ejection/extraction on this shotgun are user-adjustable.
5. adjustable trigger
The single selective trigger is user adjustable.
Steelium is a proprietary tri-alloy blend that Beretta uses for barrels. Among the many benefits it offers is a combination between lightness and exceptional resistance to shock and deformation. For the hunter, this means absolute shot consistency (steel or lead), accuracy and a shotgun that will give you several lifetimes of enjoyment.
7. Micro Core Recoil Pad
The Micro Core recoil pad is designed to do two primary things. First, to reduce recoil as much as possible, so that even a long session at the range will not tire you and leave you sore. Secondly, and thanks to the type of polymer of which it is constructed, it is engineered to flow smoothly to your shoulder without snagging or catching as many rubber buttpads do.
8. Opening Lever
The newly-designed opening lever features a polymer teardrop-end that will be very gentle on your thumb even on the longest session at the range.
9. Replaceable Locking Shoulders
The locking shoulders are replaceable, so that even after thousands of rounds you can keep this shotgun firing and performing with the minimum turnaround time and expense.
10. Safety Barrel Selector
The safety also contains a barrel selector, easily enabling you to choose which barrel to fire first.
