I (think) I'm after a silver pigeon in 12g. I'm a novice shotgun shooter and had a lesson with a very experienced family friend the other day, who as it turns out is a shooting instructor. He recommended I get a gun that fits me properly and amongst others suggested the Beretta 686.
He made this suggestion as it has a high comb and apparently I have high cheekbones (and a dashing smile, but he never mentioned that). The comb height issue was confirmed when I dropped into Sportsman Gun Centre by a chap called Clive (who was brilliantly helpful even though he could probably tell I'm not destined to be a big spender - thanks Clive).
Of the models I tried the Beretta 686 and 687 fitted like a dream with the 15" stock (I guess a 14 3/4 with a spacer would do the same job). The sporter was the model for me as apparently the comb has a couple more mm in height over the game model as it's a bit beefier.
So, does anyone have one they'd be willing to part with? I'm on a budget which rules out all but the 'most affordable' 686's. Any advice or suggestions would be gratefully received.
All the best,
