At its core is a 1.6" wide receiver designed to give superior balance and stability as well as intuitive shouldering and fast target acquisition by placing more weight between the hands. Also, the action is engineered to withstand the rigors of tens of thousands of rounds of serious training and competition thanks to its two huge locking lugs and replaceable barrel shoulders. Its adjustable trigger, adjustable ejection-extraction, adjustable balance and (optional) adjustable comb, means the 692 can truly become an extension of your body.
Thanks to a 5.5 times longer conical profile—which results in better weight distribution, smoother pressure dynamics inside the barrel—you will get outstanding pattern quality and precision, improved recoil reduction and reduced muzzle raise. Steelium, the proprietary tri-alloy blend that Beretta uses for barrels, offers a combination of lightness and exceptional resistance to shock and deformation.
A competition O/U should have as much weight as possible in the receiver area, to provide higher stability before and after each shot. This is what the wider receiver does, and on the 692, its width sits exactly in the middle between the 682 and the DT11. The wider receiver provides improved balance and more stability before and after the shot resulting in better shouldering and faster target acquisition.
The Beretta B-FAST System is a family of modular adjusting devices that lets you set your gun up to fit you perfectly. The family includes B-FAST Comb and B-FAST Balance.
Allows you to set your own designed balance through steel weight wads inserted into the stock as far away as possible from the hinge pins, allowing maximum balance correction for every unit of weight added. The system also allows customisation of the stock length without compromising the system.
A buttstock configuration that allows easy modification of the drop and cast of the comb to suit your exact preferences. The comb is made of steel and aluminium, and allows easy and reliable adjustment, together with the memory feature of the coloured polymeric wads. (Optional)
The safety also contains a barrel selector, enabling you to choose which barrel to fire first. There is also a newly-designed opening lever that features a polymer teardrop-end that is very gentle on your thumb – even on the longest session at the range.
The ejection/extraction on this shotgun is user adjustable.
The single selective trigger is user adjustable.
The locking shoulders are replaceable, so that even after thousands of rounds you can keep this shotgun firing and performing with minimum turnaround time and expense.
