The Beretta 694 was designed in collaboration with the Beretta Shooting Team.

Beretta recently announced its newest competition shotgun, the 694. Beretta created the 694 over-under platform specifically for clay shooting, tested in collaboration with the Beretta Shooting Team.

Beretta 694 Features

Beretta also completely redesigned the ergonomics of the stock to reduce the presence of obstacles in the shooter’s field of view. It aids when shouldering the gun and looking over the gun to better track a lower target, according to Beretta. The 694 utilizes a slightly decreased drop, improved checkering on the safety and a wider comb.

The stock comes available with drops of 35/50mm and 35/55mm. The latter also features a B-Fast adjustable heel and a round or Schnabel forend. It also features of length-of-pull of 375mm with an 18mm MicroCore recoil pad and centrally positioned trigger.

A newly designed, steel action brings a modern, sporting look. It features side panels with a mirrored profile and diagonal lines underlined by a blue graphic design. The bottom of the action sports Beretta’s three arrows and the 694 logo. A Nistan finishing lends matte grey color.

The redesigned, self-adjustable auget button reduces movement of forend over time, according to Beretta. It reduces the surface area that gets overheated during long days on the range.

A redesigned pistol grip features aggressive checkering and increased surface area. The design promotes the best grip and better hand position.

The steel top lever features a new, low profile and an anti-glare finish. Meanwhile, newly designed ejectors utilize powerful springs positioned behind the ejector slide and under the stop pads, according to Beretta. Steelium barrel technology, the choice of 30- or 32-inch barrels and reduced perceived muzzle jump round out the features. The 694 retails for $4,500.
