Shotgun Review: Beretta's 687 EELL Diamond Pigeon - Commitment To Quality & Timeless Elegance!
Among the pantheon of exceptional firearms, Beretta has always stood out for its commitment to quality, accuracy, and timeless elegance. The Beretta 687 EELL Diamond Pigeon is no exception to this rule. This particular model successfully merges practicality, impressive performance, and aesthetic perfection.
The Diamond Pigeon, part of the premium 687 EELL family, exhibits Beretta's commitment to meet the high demands of sportsmen and women worldwide. Crafted from high-quality walnut, the shotgun’s stock and forend embody a classic beauty along with an oil finish that brings out the grains. The stock has a finely checkered pattern, ensuring a comfortable and firm grip, which is a critical factor in target shooting and hunting.
One of the key features that sets the 687 EELL Diamond Pigeon apart is its extraordinary engraving. Hand-finished by Italian craftsmen, the side plates boast a game scene engraving featuring diamond pigeons, elevating the overall design from a simple tool to a work of art. The shotgun's receiver is crafted from a single block of the finest alloy steel, providing strength and durability, all the while keeping the weight at a balanced level.
In terms of performance, the Diamond Pigeon does not disappoint. It utilizes Beretta's renowned cold-hammer forged barrels that are impeccably designed for both balance and precision. The Optima-Bore® HP choke tubes deliver perfect shot patterns and reduce recoil and muzzle rise. These tubes, coupled with Beretta's Steelium barrels, offer the shooter consistent shot patterns, minimal muzzle rise, and maximum durability, leading to a much more rewarding shooting experience.
The Diamond Pigeon also utilizes Beretta’s exclusive selective ejector system. This allows shooters to quickly and easily switch between automatic ejection and manual extraction, providing a level of versatility that can adapt to different shooting scenarios.
As for safety, this shotgun includes a tang-mounted safety with an integrated barrel selector, allowing quick and convenient operation. This provides added confidence and ease-of-use, especially in high-pressure sporting or hunting situations.
At its heart, the Beretta Shotgun 687 EELL Diamond Pigeon is an epitome of harmony between practicality and elegance. It doesn’t simply deliver a service but also provides an experience, a balance of aesthetics and performance that places it in a league of its own. It’s not just a shotgun; it is a testament to Beretta's craftsmanship and heritage, a piece that many firearms enthusiasts would be proud to add to their collection.
