The OptimaChoke HP system gives you low recoil and extreme durability with any kind of loads (2 3/4" or 3") and the kind of accuracy that will always make you successful in the field or at the range – irrespective of if its steel or lead shot.
The trim, low-profile receiver features curved locking lugs for unbeatable strength. Without altering the height of the action, Beretta has made its locking system stronger and the hinge-pins even more durable.
It features an outstanding black look combining matte and polished surfaces, which give these over-and-unders an incredible personality.

Beretta has found this to be the absolute best drop for most shooters; the shotgun will come up to your cheek naturally and align your eye to the target without effort.
The 690 III is offered in an array of different configurations to ensure each shooter is matched with his or her perfect shotgun, with 2 configurations (Field & Sporting), 4 barrel lengths, 2 stock dimensions and 5 OptimaChoke HP, the options are endless. Also, when you buy from an official Beretta Australia stockist, you will get it fitted for free to ensure an even better fit.
The Micro Core recoil pad delivers dramatic recoil reduction thanks to its soft Micro Core polymer that expands on a wide area under recoil. The polymer will not snag or catch on your clothes while shouldering the shotgun.
Thanks to the re-engineered barrel/fore-end iron design, the 690 III is lighter than the previous generation 687. With the average 12ga 28" barrelled shotgun weighing 3.35 kilograms, the 690 III Field can go even lower than 3.25 kg - making it a pleasure to carry and shoot even on a long upland trek.
