Beretta’s stunning new 690 Field 12-bore is hot off the production line and has already caught Dom’s eye

Our fave new gun from the CLA was the new 690 Field from Beretta. This 12-bore game gun is based on an evolution of the proven and much-loved 680 action. The new gun features double fences and an elegantly redesigned top rib that saves weight and helps the handling of the 690. It is initially available with 28 or 30-inch barrels and comes with a lovely grade 3 oil-finished walnut stock. Prices will be from around £2,500. Visit

Watch the video to get a glimpse behind the scenes at the Beretta factory and see the 690 evolve from sketch pad to production reality.

We will be bringing you a full test of the 690 in the next month or so.
