2020 has been a great year for Beretta once again being our top selling brand. This is due to their extensive range; Silver Pigeon £1,485 to SO10 £67,500 but the stand out model has to be the 694.

The Beretta 694 has been our bests selling single model for 2020, having sold 37 alone. The success of this guns hasn’t been seen since the Beretta 682 Gold E which now holds an iconic status of a hardcore Beretta competition gun, boasting super reliability, great handling and above all affordability.
So, what’s making the 694 so attractive?
Handling is so important and the balance seems to be suited just right, with 32” sporting barrels weighing 1.58 kg and 30” 1.50 kg
The stocks are fitted with a simple, neat and effective stock weighting system that comes as standard, so you can tailor balance to own preference.
Optima HP chokes, who doesn’t like simple? The Beretta colour coded choke system has been around for years and is so easy to identify, quickly and without the use of a magnifying glass to looking for tiny markings. And, most importantly they pattern great!
Wood quality is a massive issue for all gun makers, having well-figured wood gives pride of ownership and always helps with residual value. Wood is of course totally personal choice; however we find most people like darker stocks. Some of the stocks that have been on the guns we’ve sold have been exceptional in terms of colour and figure.
Beretta have now also expanded the range of 694, with the Trap and DTL versions. We think the DTL version is going to be a great seller, since it has slightly heavier barrels and great stock dimensions. Our best guess is that a lot of these aren’t going to be used for DTL but as sporters for people who like the trap gun type feel.
The TSK Pro – it’s a made to measure gun with the convenience of picking it off the shelf! The stocks can be adjusted in length, pitch, cast, height and don’t worry we can assist in setting all of this up for you. At the moment we just have these in 30” but we have a quantity on order in 32” and left-handed!
Once the restrictions get lifted and we get back to competition shooting I am sure we will see some major competitions being won with the 694!
